This place is run by a French-trained Japanese chef and serves Hida beef (a Japanese wagyu competitor to Kobe). The service was exceptional but the meal was even better. I ordered a 200g Tobi filet, which was simply remarkable. I cut it with a butter knife and it melted in my mouth. I've eaten a lot of steak in my... More

There are 3 Le Midi restaurants near to each other - two fine dinning with one serving french cuisine and the other restaurant in the opposite direction serving Japanese noddles and the third one is relatively the budget type offering ramen using vending machine to order your menu. We went to the third restaurant for lunch where there is nothing... More

My wife and I were sharing an A5 Hida beef and a standard set lunch. Both are good. The beef is juicy and just right medium rare cooked. The set lunch was good value for money. Services were good too.

I have been to Le Midi several times now and it has never disappointed. It is in the heart of Takayama, rit near one of the bridges leading to the old town. This is a French style restaurant runny Japanese chefs. The food is absolutely delicious and the wine selection is also wonderful. I highly recommend the lunch time set... More

They had a vegetarian menu, which offered great choices. Wait staff had a few fluent English speakers, easy to make sure meals I wanted to order did not have any meat, fish, etc. (hard to find in Japan). Service was excellent (not always so in many Japanese restaurants), food was tasty and fair in price. We ate at the Italian... More

Great restaurant serving Hida beef and so much more besides. Top quality food and a good and reasonable wine list too. Highly recommended if your in Takayama.

I want to the chukasoba / ramen place operated by le Midi. It was average at best though they do have lots of adventurous choices (wild boar or hida beef ramen) that we didn't try. For the straight up ramen, nothing special.

My family and I enjoyed a surprising lunch in the "authentic" French restaurant that I believe is a branch of a Paris establishment. The ingredients are local, such as the Takayama Hida beef, which we all felt is better then Kobe beef. The food was excellent with wide variety of choice and menu's to help keep prices to within reason.... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor, we felt we had to try Le Midi. It was outstanding. I would have given it high marks had it been in any city in a western country, but in Japan, it is a standout. I am certain that there are many Michelin starred places that are more highly rated, but we have... More
