We had a really enjoyable meal at the bistro. The service was above average as was the food. We had the Hida beef hamburger, French onion soup, duck and scallops and it was all delicious. We would go back if we found ourselves in Takayama again!

To be honest, we got here after a couple of weeks traveling Japan and needed to get a Pizza. It was exactly what we needed! Great!

We had a great meal at the Italian Le Midi restaurant after trying to find somewhere that was open for dinner on a Sunday night. Great service and delicious food. We had the beef carpaccio pizza, two of their Hida beef pastas and a salad. All excellent!

Had dinner here - amazing restaurant. I chose the onion soup for starter and my partner had cured ham with home made mayonnaise and pork loin. Both were sumptuous. I ordered filet steak for main and partner had sirloin. My filet was cooked to perfection and thoroughly tasty. My partner said his sirloin was devine. Complimentary raspberry sorbet to finish...

A small intimate restaurant with an extensive menu. We sat at the bar which was great as we could watch the chefs at work. We had a lovely meal of duck with orange, followed by their own "pumpkin" dessert. The staff were attentive and as usual in Japan very charming and polite. Booking is advisable as all the tables were... More

This French style restaurant specialises in hilda beef, and what a joy it was to eat there!. We were immediately seated by a charming waitress who spoke good English. She understood immediately my food allergy, checked with the Chef and indicated what was suitable for me to eat. The food preparation area was on public view (it was impressive) and... More

You can find great french cuisine in Japan. Most chefs have spend some time at more or less perstigeous restaurants in paris or lyon. Having said this, we came with higher expectations to le midi than - for instance - a french place in an kambodian rural tourist spot. We where proofed wrong and ended up paying top dollar for...

We had our Christmas Dinner at Le Midi. The service provided was good and we like the ambience of the restaurant. We had steak for main course and some desserts after that. It was such a scrumptious meals. The price was reasonable too. Recommended for a visit to this restaurant.
