It’s my second time at Niseko and I finally had the chance to dine at Ezo. Wanted to try for my first visit there already but it was so fully booked! So remember to reserve your table way before hand to secure a great dinner...at Niseko! Of course, food was great, seafood was fresh and what tops it off is that staff was so welcoming too! Have a great experience there and will return soon!More

6 of us arrived at restaurant for dinner, only to find out we had booked for the following Thursday. The place was full but the Manager and staff were great and squeezed us in. The seafood was fantastic and the standout meal during the week’s...visit. We shared plates of Alaskan crab, sashimi, oysters, scallops, calamari, prawns, and a whole snapper. All were very fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious. Thanks again for squeezing us in and for the great dinner.More

Superb - the best dinner we had all week in Hirafu. Wonderfully fresh. Particularly recommend the crab (the hard work for which is done for you).

We had a most enjoyable meal of many different kinds of fish and seafood as recommended by the owner. When one member of our group wasn't feeling up to making the up hill walk back to the hotel and a taxi was going to take...more than 1/2 hour to arrive, the owner gave us a ride back to the hotel in his van. Now that is service above and beyond!More

Ezo never disappoints....the only disappointment is when you cannot get a table!!! Food is always so fresh and of top quality! So many repeat customers year after year...we are definitely not alone in that! Thank you Ezo and thank you James. We ate in one...evening and then order take out another....both amazing as expected!!!More

We couldn't get a booking so we took a chance and rocked up at 8.15pm. So happy we did as we walked in and got a table immediately. The restaurant is small but the seafood was awesome, great selection and so so fresh. Very nice...atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. The owner came and spoke to us later and was very friendly. Not the cheapest place but thats partly as we got carried away and ordered all the rock star dishes, sashimi platter, local oysters, king scallops, king crab and more. The quality and freshness makes it worth every yen. Will return next time Im in Niseko.More

Wow disappointing quality seafood. Scallops for example had a chewy, unappealing texture. Crab legs alright but a bit dry for $50 for one leg. Not sure why this place has such high ratings!More

First, get your reservation in now or be at their door at 5PM to get access to the few walk-in seats available. Once there, select your meal from the live or extremely fresh seafood, add some rice or noodles and drinks and get ready for...some really good seafood. The calamari and scallops were fantastic! The warm sake was a new experience and added to the enjoyment. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat the best seafood in town!More

Extremely fresh seafood offered in a novel but effective way. The owner, James, is a real pro who runs a great business Good value and fun setting explains all the walk-ins trying to get a table. Really is a "must go" place in Hirafu /...Niseko. I ate there four nights ago and have already referred two groups to Ezo with similar responses from them. Aloha.More
