Casual and cosy atmosphere. I booked our meal on a whim just a couple days before and was lucky enough to get a table for two. We were seated at the corner of the first floor and had a tiny table (more on that later). James, the owner welcomed us and asked us to come by the bar once we've... More

The best seafood restaurant in all of Niseko! But be ware, it can get expensive! They offer a great selection of some of the best fresh seafood Hokkaido had to offer!

We loved the ambiance of the tiny restaurant with personalized recommendations by the owners. They also provided take away when they were too full to seat us!

We really wanted to eat here having read numerous reviews. However they don't take bookings by phone. Turned up in person at the start of the week looking for a reservation for any night. They said they had availability Friday night so we said "lock it in" We were very surprised to be told, "Oh sorry sir, we only take... More

Thank you for your review and bringing to light this issue. I understand fully that our reluctance to take your booking struck you as poor customer service. Our booking protocol is outlined fully on our website, but by way of explanation, we only take bookings that are "secured" via our online bookings system which requires a credit card to complete...

Perhaps my expectations were too lofty after reading the reviews here. The place is quaint and cosy and you feel like you are eating at the home of a friend. The raw fish was good quality but half our portion came slightly solid in the middle so while it perhaps hadn't been frozen, it was served to us at too... More

We came for dinner without a reservation (silly us) on basically the last night of the ski season (Sat night before Easter Sunday-- last weekend in March.) Knowing that a reservation was impossible we took a chance and walked in at 9PM. Thank God we did. The fresh large oysters were magical. The snow crab legs-- amazing. The miso soup... More

We first discovered Ezo in March 2014 - ate there twice and packed away once. We were in Niseko 2 weeks ago and had the pleasure of dining there twice again. Good thing we made online reservations ahead of time cos the restaurant was fully booked for the month of March. James the owner shared that the freshest seafood is... More
