I ate here twice....it is so easy to get to as the staff collect you from your door and deliver you home at the end of the evening!. the food was excellent...a mixture of japanese and western dishes. The oysters in gelee were outstanding as well as the pork main course. A very good wine list...from simple bottles to top of the range grand cru!...the chablis goes well with the seafood!

many thanks to Mitsumi for her amazing smile and fun service

Villa Lupicia restaurant is a few minutes outside the main Hirafu village in Niseko, but they have a wonderful pick up and drop off service. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the food superb. We had the private room with seven of us for a friends birthday and chose the 5 course meal that showcases some of the wonderful produce of Hokkaido as well as the talent in the kitchen. Presentation of food was beautiful and tastes were sensational. Villa Lupicia is now a regular dining experience for us each year.

This is very fine dining just outside Hirafu village. Local ingredients cooked and presented in a French way. The deli which is attached is an almost daily stop for us for fresh bread, delicious Pate Fois gras, oil, reduced balsamic, and wonderful teas to take home as a gift. Not to be missed!

Starts with a friendly taxi pickup from our accom, as it's on the way to Annupuri from Hirafu. Not too far, but absolutely worth the effort.

Had the set menu, and nothing disappointed. Fresh cut of a baguette between each course, good wine, and a taste sensation.

Our waitress was a delight, prompt, friendly, assisting and always a smile.

Their brochure was in my welcome pack at my accom, which normally means it's being pushed, but that was not the case this time. It was simply a recommendation to a must-do dinner. Brilliant !

For a 4 minute transport, this was far out Niseko style, but a brisk walk from centrum could have done it – we just did not try it! But the food offering was spectacular, as their set menu was inspiring, tasty and invigorating. The restaurant is part of an accommodating establishment – which explains the location – but the restaurant actually deserved a central location to match their exquisite menu. They also had a gourmet sales outlet next door, where prices indicated that this must be high quality stuff, which then only speaks volumes for the dished served up at the restaurant. The wine list was also deep yet expensive, so we dared the most inexpensive, which turned out to be a disaster: young, light and totally lack of taste. However, do not blame the restaurant per se – other than having a wine that did not live up to the high quality menu – but our own effort to keep costs down. It just goes to show that you get what you pay for, so we were happy that the food more than made up for this cheapy selection from our part. Thank you for a delightful meal
