Yoshidaya Minokin

Reviewed By Marco R - Hong Kong, China

Little restaurant with kind and efficient service (even though they do not speak any English).
The two unagi sets we tried were out of this world: really tasty, well-cooked and juicy. They were paired with rice, miso soup and little desserts.
Totally worth the slightly higher price than a usual lunch in a Japanese small town.

Soba no Hirajin

Reviewed By UmeQ - Los Angeles, California

Nice location near the river. Soba was delicious. (Soba-yu was a bit light for us). The special is June was order large portion noodles for the price of a regular portion noodles. My son loved it and ate it all. He left me with the sushi. Everyone around me seemed to enjoy especially the noodles.

Suzume No Iori Gujo

Reviewed By midoriyoshi - Oiso-machi, Japan

いがわ小径の脇にある古民家レストラン。広間や縁側にユッタリテーブルやソファー席が設えられていて、落ち着いて食事が楽しめる。ランチでお邪魔したけれどコースは、地元の食材を利用したプリフィクス。量もタップリで満足至極。ワインもいただいて食事時間は約2時間、ノンビリした街でのノンビリランチは嬉しい時間でありました。

白川郷へ行った帰りに夕食に立ち寄りました。囲炉裏で焼きながら食べる料理は雰囲気もあり大満足。地鶏コースと飛騨牛コースを注文しましたが、うまみのある品でボリュームもありました。最後のしめの鮎雑炊もあっさりとした、かつ深みのある品で、最後までおいしくいただけました。また、食べに行きたいと思えた料理どころでした。

ゴルフの帰りに友人のオススメでランチに寄りました。店の入口がモダンで気分が和らぎます。イタリアンとありますが普通に和食もたべられます。ランチは美味しいが値段の割に分量が少し物足りないが、店内が広くゆっくりとくつろげるのでありがたい。

Gujo Sumibiyaki Unagi no Uotora

Reviewed By MBev - Singapore

Gujo, and its neighbouring town Seki are known for their Freshwater eels, given the towns' clean and clear waters.
We made it a point to have eel for dinner the one night we stayed in Gujo, and went to Uotora for dinner. The restaurant closes at 8pm, and when we went at about 7pm we were the only diners there. The tourist town of Gujo quietens down at night after the day tripping tourists leave I guess.
Uotora has a long history of serving up their specialty eel dishes, and this came through clearly in their food. We had the charcoal grilled eel served in 2 different styles - one with a dark sauce and one without, and both were absolutely delicious, and expertly grilled - slightly crisp on the outside yet soft on the inside.
If you are an Unagi aficionado, or even if you've never eaten eel before, this is the place to go to!

Shinbashitei

Reviewed By Tolmekian - St Ives, United Kingdom

My girlfriend and I ate here and couldn't be happier with the food and service given.
From the outside there's no sign of English support but when entering were asked of our Japanese ability and given an English menu which helped with deciding what to eat.
The staff were incredibly friendly and made every effort to help us understand what each food was and how we should prepare and eat it. They even offered us their own ice cream after requesting a dessert menu but being told they didn't serve it.
We had the hida beef set menu and it was great, would definitely recommend.

スキーの帰りに何度か行きましたが、メニューが豊富で
安いので人気がありすぎて何十分と待ちます。
やっと中に入れたかと思うと、注文をするまでも
なかなか聞きにに来てくれずに困ります。
ここは待っている人がいると行かない方がいいかも知れません。
海鮮丼など美味しくておすすめなので、空いている時を
狙って行くに限ります。

Sobasho Matsui

Reviewed By Richard271828 - Perth, Australia

We went as a family of five at lunchtime on Saturday. The wait for a table was about 30 minutes as this place is very popular. There are basically three items on the menu: soba noodles, tempura vegetables and a small dessert. We liked all three, and found the soba very refreshing. Yuzu tea as part of the dessert was again very refreshing.
