We had an excellent meal of hida beef. The staff were very friendly and helpful and prepared a separate bill for each of us.

Takayama is known for their hida beef. We could have gone to just any other teppanyaki place but to really savor the meat, we thought it'd be best to let the experts do their job. Hence, we strolled into le midi. The hida beef tartare was divine, in particular. Make sure you order this if you do come here. The... More

Came here with my wife tonight. A5 Hilda Fillet steak, beef cheeks and 2008 Grand Reserve Chardonnay. Throw in a dessert and coffee and this was the best $230 I have spent in Japan. The Chef takes pride in his food, adding the finishing touches to every plate served. Wish this restaurant was in Perth.

I went to this restaurant on 9/18/2016 for dinner along with four friends visiting the area. We chose this restaurant upon one of my friend's research raving about this restaurant and the quality of the hida steak. We all ordered the 150-gram grade A4 hida beef set meal for 5000 Yen. I followed the chef's suggestion to have medium cooked.... More

The food here is very good. We were with a group of 22, and the service was excellent. The salad was very fresh, and the steak was extremely tender. You won't be unhappy with this meal, it was excellent.

As we arrived with six people and a lot of luggage, the staff kindly took our luggage and took us to our seats where we had a really good lunch. The staff fortunately speaks decent English and were very kind. Fair price/quality ratio. Definitely worth visiting!

For our last night in Takayama we booked in for a meal and we were the only patrons from the time we arrived until the time we left. We ordered the least fatty Hida beef and a bottle of wine. The food was great and the Hida beef excellent. The staff speak competent English and, as you would expect very... More

This is a nice restaurant in Takayama, with an ambience resembling a European/ French bistrot. The food has strong European components and you will be able to find Western cutlery at the table. The highlight for us was the Hida beef menus, where we took the sirloin, which was really very good. Came preceded by a "gazpacho" (fun for us,... More
