This was a great find - recommended by the owner of the Ryokan we stayed at. Mainly locals it seemed, with a sprinkling of tourists. Food was terrific and service excellent/very friendly. The HIda beef was very good as was a vegetable dish I ordered (forgot what it was called - fresh vegetables perfectly/tastefully prepared with rice/a bunch of sides). They did not speak much English (although menu was in English), Would highly recommend - better than most restaurants we ate in Tokyo and Kyoto and far-and-away the best in Takayama.

寿々やにご来店まことにありがとうございました。
高評価、そして素晴らしいコメントを頂けて嬉しく思います。

飛騨牛は脂身と、赤身の割合が丁度良く、なおかつ柔らかい美味しい牛肉だと私も思います。
東京、京都のお店も素晴らしいお店がたくさんありますが、そこよりも美味しいと言っていただけるのはうれしくてしょうがないです!!!

高山の最高の素材は「水」だと思っております。
山から出てきた水を使用しているので素材の味をより引き出していると推測しております。

どうぞ素晴らしい旅を、思い出を作って下さることを願っております。

ありがとうございました。

Thank you for coming to Suzuya restaurant.
We are happy you gave a high evaluation, and wrote great comment.

I think hida-beef’s lean meat and fat are good balance(%). it should be note that is soft and juicy!!!

I guess that there are good restaurant in Tokyo and Kyoto, but you said here is better!! What a wonderful words. I just appreciate you.

By the way, the most important material of meal is “water” basically.
Takayama has a natural water source around here, so it bring out the taste of the material.
This is one of my guess.

OK thank you very much, coming and reading.
I hope you would have a nice trip and memory in Japan.

Best regards.

We chose this place just off the main street and it looked inviting. The staff were lovely and if your Japanese is limited, their English is very good. Obviously they are targeting the tourist trade but that's business!
We both had the Amiyaki-Teisyoku (set menu) and I do enjoy cooking my own meat over coals. The Hida beef is very good and full of flavour, and was the 2nd night I'd gone for the beef. I can't understand the other reviews slamming the food quality unless they were leaving their beef strips over coals for a half hour!
I'd recommend as a nice meal and good service (if you want something, a little "sumimasen" does the trick!). Maybe slightly on the pricey side for what it is, but it's just off the main street so that's what you'd expect in any town.

Hida beef is a 'must try' and I'm a definite steak lover and picky where I go.

寿々やにご来店まことにありがとうございました。
とても嬉しいコメントを書いていただき誠感謝いたします。

沢山の方々に食べてもらい、評価をしていただく。これはすごく大事な事で、私たちも様々アドバイスを頂き今の店を作っております。確かに評価の低いコメントを頂くと凄く凹みます。だけど私達にも意地はあり、どうにかして今以上のクオリティーを作り上げるかをこのところの課題としております。

MIKE様のコメントは私たちを勇気づけ、もう一歩踏み出すことのできる鍵となりました。
ありがとうございます。

さて、飛騨牛の件(あみ焼き)ですが、炭火で焼くお肉は本当に美味しいですね。私たちもたまに試食をするのですが、炭火は余分な脂身を溶かし、その油が熱い炭の上に落ち煙になり、焼いている肉を軽い燻製に仕立て上げる。
この文を書いているだけでもおなかが減ってきます。
・・・・失礼しました。
まあ、それくらい美味しくなる調理方法なのです。

貴方がお肉愛好家というコメントは私を二やりとさせてくれます。嬉しい限りです。
少し文章を書くのを遅れてしまい申し訳ございませんでした。
どうぞ素晴らしい旅を、思い出を作ってください。

Thank you for coming to Suzuya restaurant.
We really appreciate your comment.
We want to serve many people and get comment and evaluation that is very important for getting new advice. It makes our restaurant and service. Certainly, when we had gotten a low evaluation, we disappointed by them. But we have pride of chef, we thought how do we make more high quality of service and meal. That is our “Everlasting agenda”.
Your comment make us encourage, we got a key of advance.
Thank you very much.

By the way, hida-beef that Amiyaki is very tasty, we was tasting it sometime, the coal melt extra fat, the fat drop onto heated caol that became smoking beef. I just imagine, … I become hungry.
Excuse me I am carried away.
It that mean Amiyaki is tasy.

You are the meat lover the comment makes me smile. I am very glad
.
And I am sorry my replying is late.

Please have a great trip and memory in japan.
Thank you very much.

The food here was really ordinary, verging on bad and it's really over priced with tiny portions. No idea why it's got any customers, don't eat here.

大変恐縮ではありますが、料理を配った後に、すべてのお客様にお伺いをしており、皆様は美味しいと言ってくださっておりましたので、気が付く配慮が欠けておりました。

Thank you for coming to Suzuya restaurant.
The beginning we apologize you about our service.
I'm terribly sorry; I come around after serving each person. Then everybody said “tasty” in that time. So it was my lack of consideration.

We will try considering by your advice.

We are sorry about fall short of yours expectations.

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the travel agent and Trip Advisor. What a bust! They were very friendly and welcoming, but that's the only nice thing I can say. I did not try the Hida beef sirloin for $60+, but did spend $37 on their Hida beef strips grilled on a leaf by you at your table.

They serve it, suggest taking your picture with it, then disappear. (Forget more than 5oz of water every 30 minutes.) But worst, for that price we got tough, stringy chuck roast cut in strips. I don't think it even was a brisket grade.

We left hungry and shaking our heads -- they asked us to please rate them on Trip Advisor.
