We went to Kitchen Hida last night and I have to agree with the other reviewers, it was the best beef steak I've ever had. It was so tender and juicy. We paid around 14000 yen for chef recommended menu for two (soup, rice/bread, salad, 400g grade A4 hida beef sirloin steak, coffee/tea) plus beer and cold sake.
The sake is called onikoroshi (means demon killer) and it tasted soooo good.
They were fully booked last night and we didn't have a booking, we were seated at the counter. From there, we had a clear view of the chef preparing our steak.
The waiter was very friendly and spoke english :)
All in all, it was a really good experience. Given the opportunity, I will go back there. So if you're in town, this place is a must try.

Our family of five spent 11 days in Japan end of December 2011, we were in Takayama for two nights , at Shirakawago and Tokyo. We tried many eating places and Kitchen Hida was by far the very best for Hida beef. We tried the grade A4 beef and it was the best piece of steak I had in my entire life.
When we arrived at Takayama we received a list of restaurants at the visitor center, there were three listed specialising in Hida beef, plus many other restaurants offering Hida beef as well, we tried all three, and Hida Kitchen was the best, nice restaurant, great service, the captain Mr Ohda spoke excellant English, near fine dining experience(without white table cloth), we were there for lunch.
For family of five it was about USD 100 per person, including a bottle of red wine. This is expensive but we would go again if we have the opportunity in the next few years.
