Another 3rd time, and not disappointed. Seafood is still excellent and superbly fresh. Most dishes were really good and well cooked, good service and English speaking from staff allows to interact and order well. Very nice welcome and menu explanations from owner/manager. Place is small as most in Niseko... book ahead. Nicer to be on the bar side that closed... More

We had heard so much about Ezo Seafoods that we wanted to give it a try. Unable to get a booking we arrived at 5.30 to see if we could get a walk in table. Told by James to come back in 30 min. True to his word, 30 min later we were given seated then given a run down... More

Third time here and it is still the best in Hirafu. I eat out a lot across Asia and not many places can compete with Ezo when it comes to quality and genuineness. Tonight we had the king crab, the mixed sashimi, Hokkaido oysters, calamaris, scallops and the snapper. All was really good as usual, and the snapper was a... More

Not a lot of seatting here which is one of the reasons why its hard to get a table, however its well worth reserving ahead if you can. The menu is literally the fresh fish on display as you walk in. Once selected, its prepared and cooked if necessary before being brought to your table. We had oysters and king... More

Our family of 4 went to Ezo for dinner. It was a small place packed with tourists. The staff was friendly and the service efficient. Menu choices were limited but the freshness more than made up for it. The king crab was the star of the night. Given it was our first dinner at Niseko, we were surprised at how... More

Everyone had raved about this restaurant and we had a week of concierge bookings for the week that we were in Niseko. Unfortunately, they weren't able to get us a table at Ezo, so we went to the restaurant super early (4.30pm) to wait and hope for a walk-in table, which we were lucky to get. They also offer takeaway... More

Been here two years in a row. The quality is always good. Reservations are always tough to get. Best way to get a table is to show up 15mins before they open. They always keep tables open for walk-ins at the time of opening.

Remember to book in advance (talking about 4 to 6 months of peak session). Best seafood in town. Friendly staff and owner. You pick your food on the ground floor and they cook it fresh for you immediately. The price is a little expensive but it is worth it.

First of all - book in advance, in fact, well in advance. This is not an easy place to get a booking or simply walk in hoping for a table. Place is usually booked out solid weeks ahead. But it's well worth it. Sashimi was excellent! Other seafood was great too. It's not a traditional type of Japanese sushi place... More
