Just watch your head as you are coming into this restaurant. Typical of many little Japanese restaurants, the snow piles up and the entrance can be a challenge. However, this really worth the visit. It is popular in Trip Advisor for this area and I...More

The short walk to the restaurant is very pleasant. Bookings strongly recommended as it's very popular. Take-away is also available...More

After a day on the slopes, we got really hungry and followed the tips from the locals to stop by Pirateman. Amazing food, drinks and cozy atmosphere, especially when the real snowstorm outside has begun. We had group shyabu-shyabu (Japanese hotspot), spring rolls and deserts...More
