Chose this restaurant after walking everywhere in Takayama and I can say after checking the prices of almost every restaurant in the city this one is probably the best value for money. 180g of pure sizzling hida beef for 3200 yen with free miso and rice refills.

Takayama is known for its Hida beef, and at Manpukutei, this dish is served well and not expensively too! It's a simple restaurant that serves homestyle food at inexpensive prices. For non-beef eaters, they have chicken and tofu dishes as well. When we went there, the old lady did everything herself: take orders, cook, remove the dishes, and cashiering. She... More

Seemed to be very much a local hangout with everyone knowing everyone else. No frills, but good food. We both had a bbq beef set which was more than enough for each of us. Around 2500 yen apiece.
