Very close to the traditional walking streets, ideal if you want to make a change from japanese food and go bak to western flavors. We ordered gnocchi, risotto, schimp pasta and pear & gorgonzola pizza, all of which were very good. We also ordered pork, which was a bit disappointing. The place is small, but with a nice, warm ambience.... More

Food here was good but not that good. Compared to similar restaurants it was too expensive and then they add a service tax as well. You pay for the atmosphere which was pleasant but definitely not Japanese - a sort of French/Italian crossover. I have to say the service was excellent though. If you want a more authentic location at... More

Le Midi is a lovely French bistro style restaurant on a quiet corner between the station and the old houses section of the city. The dinner menu was large with many daily/seasonal specialties and familiar french bistro items. The local Hida beef features extensively and we all had excellent beef based dishes. The carpaccio was delicious with the slices of... More

LeMidi was our last meal in Takeyama but intend to return and definitely have more meals here. Sat at the counter watching chef produce his work of art and had great conversation with another customer who spoke Japanese sharing our questions/comments to the chef. The staff so friendly, wonderful atmosphere. The parma salad was generous portions(wouldnt find that in Tokyo)... More

We had the Beef Carpaccio, Scallop Salad, Pizza Prosciutto and Spaghetti Ragu (specialty). The food was alright but nothing special in comparison to other restaurants we tried during our Japan trip. There are a few other restaurants that have better value for money.

Fancying a change from Japanese food our hotel recommended Le Midi as the best 'Western' restaurant in town. This has the look and feel of a French bistro but the chef and all the staff are Japanese. The premises are small and we were lucky to get a reservation. The speciality of the house is the local Hida beef. My... More

We just arrived at Takayama and it's lunch time. We heard so much about Hida Beef and can't wait to give it a try. Read about Le Midi on Tripadvisor and thought we should go there for a western lunch since we've been having Japanese food for the past few days. There are a few shops under them around that...

Today we arrived just in time at Le Midi to have a quick dinner. We ordered 4 times the 200g marbled Hida beef ('the best steak ever', according to the menu), 4 times a stunning 7500 yen and afterwards they initially refused to serve desserts to us because it was 4 minutes past kitchen closing time... The beef was nice,... More
