We stopped here for lunch on our travel between Takayama and Kanazawa. A small restaurant that packs a punch. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the Wagyu beef steak. The service was impeccable. Quite a little gem to find in the middle of the Japanese alps.

Known for its award winning hida steak, Le Midi doesn't disappoint. The meals are large enough to give that satisfied feeling yet not so filling you aren't enticed by dessert. I was disappointed they only had one bottled beer variety but the wine list certainly made up for that. I'd eat here again.

The Hidi beef steak is excellent. This shop operates under the Le Midi group which owns 3 shops ranging from formal French, Italian and this noodle eatery. If you don't want formal lunch but like the quality hidi fillet and ramen, you must try this. Especially, you are in a hurry for sight seeing.

Food was delicious. My husband and I took steak and burger to share . Both dishes were spectacular . Restaurant also has nice medium price price level wine selection for someone who like to have meat with wine. Service was very good. All service stuff speaks good English . English menus also available. Was there for lunch - highly recommend.

We took the lunch menu and decided to take the wagyu beef (3th time in japan). The meet was amazing as always but they brought our meet cold and we have to ask them to warm it up and they brought cold again impacting our perception of our meal. Inaceptable from a 50 dolars/ person course.

My first taste of Hida beef has been just amazing. Le Midi is well known from Tripadviser and need to be prebooked. Service can be slow but the 200g Hida sirloin melts in your mouth. Lovely wine selection. A must visit in Takayama

This is a French style restaurant, with a bright room and a nice decor. There is a good selection of appetizers and main courses. We were 4 for diner, the service was great, the food absolutely delicious! We paid 140$ without wine.

This was our third restaurant visit in Takayama, the first two being the wonderful Sakurajaya and Centre4hamburgers. We looked at the website and decided we'd have one of their set menus Y4,800-12,000. Got to the restaurant and the set menus were advertised outside. Went in and sat down in a very nice corner table. The restaurant was quiet but it's... More

French food at LeMidi was some of the best we've had anywhere. We all had duck and it was beautifully cooked and presented. The service was warm, welcoming and friendly. The complimentary sorbet was very much appreciated and when we sent our compliments to the chef he actually came out to greet us which was a lovely gesture. Highly recommend... More
