lovely birthday meal

Lovely quiet traditional place with great local food. The young guy serving us was brilliant. Really friendly and funny, he was quite the comedian, and really made an effort to speak English and French. Highly recommended if you are in takayama.

We went to this restaurant based on recommendation from the staff in our ryokan. This is supposedly one of the most popular restaurants offering hida beef in the area. We had amiyaki and sukiyaki. Both were excellent. The staff spoke good English and the price was very reasonable, a little over 3000 yen per person.

English menu and helpful staff. Sukiyaki delicious; a tofu main course was too, but not quite enough food. Tour groups can be a problem.

The staff was very nice and helpful, the food was outstanding (get the Amiyaki for great Hida beef), and the prices were reasonable.

The best meal of my visit to Japan and the owner's English enabled him to explain a great deal about my meal. Highly recommend a visit.

We had the chance of eating in the back room, where you have the typical Japanese table. The meal chosen was beef cooked over a magnolia leaf with sauce. It was very good and restaurant was full of foreigners as it was one of the few open on a Tuesday night. Never the less, service was done by an english... More

Suzuya came recommended to us by our ryokan (Ryokan Tanabe), and while we were the only tourists there that evening (the rest were locals), we did get the impression that it was no stranger to foreigners. (This was confirmed when we told the lady we were from Australia before leaving, and she pointed to a decoration they had adorned with... More

I went here around noon on a Saturday expecting it to be busy but there were only a couple tables occupied. The service was very quick and everyone was really friendly. It seemed like everyone eating at the restaurant was having the same thing: Hida beef cooked with miso paste and vegetables over a magnolia leaf. I thought it was... More
