Where to eat International food in Nikko: The Best Restaurants and Bars

May 30, 2020 Mikaela Didonna

Find out what International restaurants to try in Nikko. The shrines and temples of Nikko have been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Here, you can visit the Toshogu Shrine, which dates from the 17th century and is a monument to (and the mausoleum of) Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of a shogunate that ruled Japan for 250 years. Travelers day-tripping from Tokyo generally focus on the sacred sites, but if you have extra time, explore the area’s beautiful waterfalls and lakes.

Very tasty meal here. Servers were extremely nice and accommodating. On second floor above Tanaya Bakery. Set meal included yummy Miso soup and small but extremely fresh salad. We asked for the sauces on the side. We have found that often dishes are over-whelmed with the sauces. We would definitely eat here again.

戦場ヶ原に面して建っています。2Fが展望レストラン。そば、うどん、ラーメン、カレーが、定番ですが、最近では餃子コロッケがお勧めです。おそば、そこそこ美味しかったです。朝は、8:30~やっているので、ハイキング途中に活用すると便利です。

We had a very tasty meal (tempura with noodles and tempura with rice) on our way back to the temples. Staff is also absolutely kind!

Yutaki Rest House

Reviewed By Wajo

My wife pointed at a certain dish: a lot of laughter "no, this is only for kids" and more laughter. The supermarket next door had no problem with strange preferences of ganjin customers. We did favor the fish on a stick, sold by a guy in a separate part of the restaurant. And we did not expect a restaurant or shop at this place, so it was a pleasant surprise to get some food here

温泉街の中ほどにある大田原産とちぎ和牛ハンバーグランチ(税別2,100円)がウリのカフェです。店内はテーブル席とカウンター席をあわせて30席ほどの小ぢんまりしたお店でした。ランチでは予約を受け付けていないのでオープン時間に合わせて行けば座れますが、休日は多少待つことを覚悟した方がよさそうです。サーブされる食器はすべてマイセン。壁に掛けられたプレートや陶器の置物もすべてマイセンといったこだわりのお店です。ハンバーグ以外のパスタ(税別1,200円)もおいしいと思います。その他にビーフカレーランチ(税別1,500円)もありました。夜はカフェバーになるようです。

Kamaya cafe du Reverbere

Reviewed By bob2bkk

If you are going up to Nikko, I highly recommend Cafe de Reverbere. It is a cafe style and very casual and offers great food. Pizza, pasta, salads, soups and entrees. A big dessert counter and a wide range of beverages. The staff is friendly and spoke English. Three of us ate a great lunch for about $35. Pasta was cooked to perfection, the pizza, thin style, but not a cracker bread like some places in Asia, and the soups and salads ample. If you leave the Nikko train station the main road leads to the right up to the temple. A short walk up this road leads you to the Nikko Tobu rail station ( I believe this station does local runs), and an outdoor bus terminal. There are numerous gift shops and souvenir shops and is a gathering spot for tourists waiting for buses. About 100 meters and across the street is the Cafe de Reverbere. Very easy walk form the station and on the main road up to the temple. As a matter of fact we walked the main street back from the temple and this place caught our eye. Recommended.

D'Vine Restaurant & Lounge

Start with some Canadian classics, add a few Japanese staples, mix in some international favourites, pair with select, local libations and you have a D'Vine Dining Experience. And Nightlife! New to Nikko.

Having visited Nikko a number of times over the years it is truly a blessing to have discovered a much needed new restaurant. D'Vine offers intellectual stimulation for the taste buds. The owners pay close attention to every detail and use the freshest of ingredients prepared with utmost care and perfection. While with a small group I had a chance to sample many dishes - all were amazing! Best lasagna ever and an exquisite Veggie Donburi! A fabulous selection of craft beers and sake to complement any menu item - extremely knowledgeable staff will answer any questions you may have. Our group had an amazing time and will make D'Vine our destination next time and forgo the temples altogether!Wow, thanks for the kind words "e-nochi"! Any better and people would think we were paying you....but seriously, great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to hosting you again in the near future. ("Intellectual stimulation for the taste buds"....we like that!)

Meiji no Yakata

Reviewed By Peter C

Then we walked to the nearby Meiji-no-Yakata西洋料理 明治の館 for lunch. It is a restaurant originally built as a Western style cottage for American trading merchant F.W. Horn, who introduced the first electric gramophone to Japan.There was a long queue waiting for lunch and we duly lined up. After about 45 minutes, we were admitted. When opening the entrance door, we were impressed by the elegance of the sophisticated space where the Westernization movement in Japan unfolded during the Meiji era. We ordered the Chef’s Recommendation Full Course Menu which got a truly wonderful range of dishes. Probably too much for lunch, the menu includes hors d’oeuvre, soup, fish, salad, meat, dessert and coffee. The food was fantastic and even though it might not be as fancy as some of the Michelin restaurants in terms of quality and taste it is nothing inferior.

We are here with a family of five. The food was all excellent--mushroom salad was divine, the rainbow trout fried was lovely. The views from up top are beautiful. The price is a bit high but I suppose that's expected at a touristy location.
