Absolutely the best ever! We went to Mimi’s for our traditional ‘end of trip special treat’ with our three adult daughters ... from the minute we arrived we felt very special, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that simply made us really happy. The staff were lovely and very professional. The food was sublime. OMG the wagyu fillet was an incredible treat that I will be talking about forever. The duck pie was packed full of divine flavors and depth, as was the lamb shank and the delicate salmon entree. The Italian Sommelier was super knowledgeable and very helpful in selecting the right wine for our meal and teaching us some new things about Italian wine. Overall, our family rates this as our best meal out, ever! And that’s saying something.

A beautiful variety of menu options that are cooked beautifully. One of the best dinners we’ve experienced. Even my fuss pot 10 yr old thoroughly enjoyed his meal. The atmosphere is beautiful, comfortable and staff are really friendly.

Dear Albert,

Thank you very much for your kind words, in Mimi's we put service attention on the same level of the quality of our food,and wine list is the result of a continuos search for both famous labels and small realities focus on organic and biodynamic wines.
About the atmosphere we have to say thanks to our great customers, that day day they don't miss the opportunity to choose our restaurant.
Thank you again and I hope to see you soon in Mimi's.

There are not a lot of fine dining places in the Hakuba area, maybe not any others actually. Fortunately, there is one really good one.
We visited the restaurant with friends and kids. The food was terrific, scallops nicely lightly cooked, oysters with a little bit of just the right sauce, a perfectly cooked piece of wagyu with a nice smokey sauce accompanying. And the kids very well taken care of as well (I would happily eat those kids meals as well - very high quality, even the bolognese was quite something). All dishes were really excellent.
Got some nice wine to go with the dishes as well however the waiter/sommelier was pushing just a little bit much for the high price options.
Overall a great place and I would go again without any hesitation.

Dear Mr Zebbert,

Thank you very much for your very kind review, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience in Mimi's, our chef Kazu San pays a lot of attention to choose the best ingredients to ensure elaborate high quality dishes.
However, we are sorry that we gave the impression of pushing you to a more expensive wine choice - our sommelier is always trying to recommend the best wine pairing in order to give you the best experience.

We hope to see you soon back in Mimi's.

Really impressed with this restaurant. The chef is amazingly talented. Christmas Eve dinner a set course there was not a plate that disappointed. One vegan friend and the chef accommodated. Have to say nibbling tastes off their plate I was again blown away. A stunning meal.

The staff are fantastic. An eclectic group of Italian, Welsh, Japanese and more mix. They are switched on, accommodating and super friendly. I’ll certainly be back again this week before I head home.
