We had Christmas lunch at Melt. The buffet was beautifully presented and had a great selection of western food, tempura prawns, salads, meat dishes, pizza, roasts and pasta. The dessert selection, although delicious was lacking in variety. The staff were both friendly and helpful. The cost was very reasonable for a buffet lunch and extremely cheap for a Christmas one....

If staying in Niseko, highly recommend having the lunchtime buffet at the Hilton Niseko Village. There are plenty of options and all for 2400 yen. We ate here numerous times during our trip and never once did our group complain about the lack, range or quality of the food. Having coeliac disease, a special thanks goes out to one of... More

Customer service, excellent. The fact that is is centrally located in the Hilton lobby might be a bothersome for some, but it was tolerable. The ambient jazz music added to the pleasant experience. This cafe does not give a Japanese feel. I could go on and on and yada yada at this review, but I will just get to the... More

We ate here for Christmas dinner. I was disappointed by the uninspired cuisine. I would expect more from a restaurant at a Hilton flagship hotel.

Had the western lunch buffet for a change, costs 2500 per person. Selection was pretty varied with a salad bar, standard hot food selection with western skewed items plus one Japanese curry, dessert station and a drinks area. Especially enjoyed the chef manned station where they ladled hot pasta into a massive chunk of Parmesan, swirled it around till it... More

The xmas dinner course was lovely, particularly the main Wagyu steak with fois gras, which was exceptional. The executive chef came by to check that everything was okay and then offered us a locally grown roasted pumpkin squash (complimentary). All the staff were very friendly and efficient and the view was very nice. The only disappointment was the dessert which... More

Tried the buffet dinner once but for the quality I did not like the value. Service is typically good but bfast tends to be crowded. Try coming after... More

Our third night in Niseko and we were in need of a buffet meal to recharge the energy banks. Daughter is a vegan which always makes eating out a challenge. When booking, we did mention this fact and shortly after arriving, chef came over to chat to her about what was available. While that was going on, the rest of... More

Caucasian chef on the grill had a very bad attitude, lots of snide remarks - felt like you were stealing from him if you took anything from his section, gave people dirty looks etc.
