Delish Hida Beef gem!

We visited Le Midi as a lot of the other Japanese style restaurants were closed. A pleasant surprise! We had the Hida Beef Cheeks and the Hida Beef Steak - both of which were melt in your mouth and served with delicious vegetables and rice. We even received a complimentary dessert!

I went to this restaurant because it has got good reviews, and I also wanted to know how hida beef would be like in french style cooking as I love french cuisine so much, so the expectation was high. I ordered Tobi steak, and went for the highest grade of Hida-gyu. The meat itself was good, but I found the... More

We were in Takayama in early May and it was my partner's birthday on that day. After having Japanese food for a week, though all very nice, we decided to have something different for a change. Le Midi was an obvious choice for a birthday meal. We both love French food and it seems to be a nice place to... More

We were visiting Takayama after a week of work in Kyoto - the whole area is a throwback to old Japan but this restaurant caught our eye as we live in Paris now - a real treat - our Japanese traveling friends had told us what to expect with Hida beef and we were not disappointed - the hamburger would...

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...
