Display style menu
We have no fixed menu as such, rather a "display style menu" which changes regularly depending on what is fresh and in season at the Sapporo Wholesale Markets or local coastal fish mongers. So you select your seafood from display cases, which we prepare and serve either fresh or cooked. We regularly stock oysters, King crab, scallops, sashimi and fresh fish. We also have a range of cooked side dishes; popular dishes include clam chowder, squid ink paella, Niseko potato wedges and crab miso soup. The average cost per person with drinks is around ¥5000. We are fully licensed and stock over 30 Australian, New Zealand and French Wines as well as Sake and spirits.
"If you go back to Europe...maybe you can stop at Chamonix and have a good time (and good food and wine). We'll never forget Ezo Seafoods!" G.U. (Chamonix). Feb 15th.
"Thanks so much for a truly excellent dining experience -- Christian and I absolutely loved Ezo, and hope to be back soon. The food was absolutely superb: we loved everything but were particularly fond of the crab, scallop and fried smelt." P.M. Feb 2013
"Along with the powder snow, your seafood was the highlight of our holiday in Niseko. Jan and I enjoyed greatly our 3 dinners with you." - Richard and Maureen, Melbourne. Feb 2010
"We wanted to extend our thanks to you both for a delightful evening at Ezo Seafoods. We loved the casual and intimate setting, and such warm, yet efficient hospitality is a rarity these days...how fantastic it was to see our meal being "shucked" before our very eyes. With each dish, the incredible fresh produce was the star. As they say, "in cooking, as in all the arts, simplicity is the sign of perfection....Please be sure to reserve us a spot on one of those charming wooden benches for our next visit."
"Anne and I had a great seafood meal tonight....seriously good. The fried fugu was specially tasty. The light tempura batter made it." Austin T. September 2011
"We were in Niseko last year for a couple of weeks and ate at your restaurant a few times.....you made us the best Tempura Oysters we haven’t stopped talking about them."- Sharon, Gumdale, Australia. Sept 2010
July, 2010 “Thank you very much for hosting our large group last Thursday night. We all had a fantastic night and it was certainly some of the freshest seafood we've had.Look forward to heading back there again next year and having a night at Ezo again.” Many thanks, Tom, March 2010
"I had dinner last week with my son and a few of his young mates in your restaurant. The Oysters and seafood was memorable, other than of all the stacks I had learning to snow board and the nice village atmosphere. I have mentioned your restaurant too many times when people ask me how my trip was to Niseko to not tell you and thankyou." BM Feb 2013
