西洋膳処 まえだ

Maeda, located in Furukawacho Kanamoricho, is a Western-style restaurant that uses local seasonal vegetables and Hida beef—known for its exquisite texture and taste—on its menu.

Given its close proximity to Hida-Furukawa Station, Maeda is frequented by travelers looking to enjoy Hida’s regional delicacies for lunch or dinner.

The restaurant’s warm yellow exterior and wooden entrance welcomes guests inside. The interior is a fun blend of Japanese and Western styles with tables and chairs set up on tatami mats. 

Hida beef steak is the order of the day, including filet and sirloin cuts, with a range of dishes on offer. Set courses come with rice, salad, miso soup, and vegetable tempura. The contrast of the crispy tempura and soft Hida beef creates a perfect combination of flavors and textures. 

The dishes are prepared with the highest attention to detail and are artfully plated, creating an all encompassing experience of taste, presentation, and atmosphere. Maeda can be busy at peak times, so reservations are recommended beforehand to secure a table.
