You can eat the fresh vegetables and meat !

You can eat the dish which was made with the fresh vegetables and meat harvested in Hokkaido at this restaurant. You can also look at the beautiful scenery of Sapporo from a window at this restaurant. It's better to visit after you make a reservation.

The restaurant situates on 35/F of JR Nikko Hotel and you can have really nice views on Sapporo during your eating time. However in order to get a good seat near the window, you better be early for breakfast, say at 6.30 am or have advance reservation with the restaurant staff for lunch or dinner. The restaurant offers various types... More

Caught lunch there as were needed a place to rest after walking around a bit. Good food and wonderful view from the tables. Do book ahead for lunch as it is fairly full, we had to take the second, later seating as the first seating was full. Pleasant staff, mix of international and Jap food. Stayed behind after lunch ended... More

This is a buffet style restaurant in the JR tower with excellent view over Sapporo and very good food. We ate way too much because the food was so tasty. The place is extremely popular with locals, so try and book in advance. Friendly ladies in the tourist information service at the Sapporo station will be glad to help with... More

This restaurant is on the 35th floor of the Hotel Nikko and offers fantastic views of the city. It is very clean and modern. The food is buffet style and mostly Asian with a good selection. The food is good but not fantastic though.

I can't understand how this place got the no 1 ranking... The food was disappointing and we were also seated away from the window... I think the whole point of visiting this place was only for the view. Furthermore, the whole restaurant was dimly lit..I supposed they were trying to create a romantic atmosphere but it totally made my group... More
