Hida has a nice little restaurant that serves great hida beef in western style. The food taste great and the presentation is prefect! The staff are very nice and professional too. I highly recommend this restaurant to visitors who will visit Hida.

My second time there. I first visited in 2012. Standard of the food was as good as I remembered it. Brought several friends there and they all seemed satisfied.

I loved this Italian restaurant in the middle of Takayama. The food was very good, especially the Hida beef steak which was served with roasted vegetables. The staff were very attentive and the executive chef came out to our table to chat with us and show us the beef he was going to cook for us. It was a lovely... More

On the plus side the meal was beautifully presented, with the chef bringing the plate to me and explaining what everything was, which was a nice touch. However the steak (Hida-beef) which was NOT cheap, was very fatty, and I mean gristle-type fat which cannot be eaten. I estimate that a 1/3rd - 1/2 of my steak was inedible. I... More

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!
