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

We read all the TR reviews made our choice and discovered the restaurant of our choice was closed on Wednesday.....oh well Le Midi was our very close second choice..... During this time of year it is very quiet in this town so walking... More

The cuisine was even better than we had anticipated and the service was great. The wine list was good and the birthday bauble made for a nearby table gorgeous. The chef has spent 3 years in France learning gastronomy and he used his skills to delight his customers.

Le Midi is a quaint restaurant with excellent customer service. Their food is delicately prepared and the presentation is absolutely a work of art. The meal was flavorful, fresh and pleasing to the palette. This restaurant is worth the money. I highly recommend it while strolling though the streets of Takayama.

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating dinner in this fantastic restaurant on our recent visit to Takayama. We chose one of the set dinner menus which was 3 starters, soup, main, dessert, coffee/tea. The food was immaculately presented; French but with some Japanese touches which worked well! I had the Monsieur Pierre lamb for main and hubby... More

We very much enjoyed this place, the service was excellent. Even though we only had a main course, we got a little dessert afterwards. It's a nice restaurant, but I would say it's Italian rather than French. It's not cheap (perhaps I feel that way because we were starting to mind our budget in the third week of our trip... More

I don't know if they had some exceptional season, but now all food was Italian. Three persons ate lunch here, only one got decent pasta. My pasta was horrible, my wife's risotto was tasty but ridiculously little, just like a small side-dish. Still rather expensive for Japanese standards - probably worst lunch we had during two weeks in Japan. Funny,... More
