Our family travelled to Takayama just to eat at this restaurant as we love their hida steak so much!!!!!!! The staff have always been very lovely and the service was so exceptionally excellent that every time we visited Japan we have to include this restaurant in our trip. It is a must try, highly recommended this place.

This restaurant could be anywhere in the world except for the quality of the beef. You choose the cut, grade and size. The taste was excellent but I should emphasize that the atmosphere had little to do with Japan. This may be a plus for those tired of Japanese food. There was an excellent wine list including French Rhones.

We visited the restaurant on a Monday night. It was very quiet and all customers were foreigners, which should tell you a great deal about the restaurant. We had A4 hida beef steak and for the record it was excellent. Even my daughter who doesn't usually eat beef went for one after having tried some from her mother's steak. The... More

We visited on a Monday at the recommendation of our hotel. They said it was one of the best for Hida beef. It was not crowded. Service was efficient. Atmosphere rather bland. Good wine list (nice change of pace from sake). The beef choices are arranged from regular to 3, 4 and 5 star. The portions are also separately itemized... More

This is as good a place as any to spend a lot of money eating the best steak in the world. For the record: 300g of A5 fillet served in a good jus with a glass of cold Sake on the side.

It was not easy to find... We asked some locals in some shop nearby and they showed us the way. There are different grades of Hida beef and we tried both A5 and A4. A5, surely, was more expensive. I looked A5 so much. My wife and myself could easily find the difference between them. I would suggest A5 should... More

We ordered both grade 5 and grade 4 to try. Unfortunately the grade 4 steak a bit overcook. Not worth the price.

Amazing and flavorful! My son who is a meat eater was totally floored by the steak - we had the A4 grade steak for 2. Highly recommended for meat lovers!

I ordered an A5 sirloin steak set which came with salad, bread and coffee. Paid slightly more than 8000 yen. Worth every penny. Literally melts in mouth and very good service. Staff understood English + good ambience and music
