I loved this place, especially the charcoal-grilled pork. The desserts were fantastic. We visited with a couple of French friends, and they were also impressed with the food, especially the grilled scallops and Mont Blanc. The service was excellent. We had an amazing time here with our large group.


Simple, uncomplicated dishes but very well made. Quality produce and balanced flavours for each course. Loved the truffle tart and the apple tart. Great service with a lovely view of the slopes


One of our designated restaurants in niseko, excellent as usual, this year they put the bread in a hot bean bag so the bread is really hot and nice and crispy, we changed our wagyu to venison which is excellent……The portion is just right not too stuffed, while we are still satisfied


Exquisite dining experience at Moliere Montagne. We were looking forward to French-Japanese fusion and we were not disappointed. The tasting menu was truly amazing.

Beautiful presentation. Excellent flavors (I think I had the best steak of my life here). May be a challenging dish here or there, expected with any tasting menu. Very good wine pairing.

Fantastic dining experience.


One of the best meals I have ever eaten.
Straightforward food that celebrates the taste of the produce without the need for theatrics.

First up was a cold soup of sorts which had a nice milky sweetness to it. Not sure if I heard correctly but this was made from milk and potatoes.

Next up was the Asparagus with runny egg yolk and parmesan. The sharpness of the fresh cheese was perfectly balanced by the warmth and mild flavour of the runny yolk and sweetness of the asparagus.

The hair crab risotto was pretty much one of the best dishes I’ve eaten. The crab was so sweet and tasty. The light creamy sauce was reminiscent of the first dish and the slightly al dente short grained rice made the eating experience an almost perfect one.

The palate cleanser of sorts was made from a tea sorbet (tasted like a mild lemon tea) and was paired with a small amount of pear brandy. Really genius combination.

Wood smoked hokkaido beef with gratin and turnip was next. Really tasty and the gratin was so sweet and delicious. The potatoes are really different in Hokkaido.

Lastly, we had freshly baked madeleines with lemon zest (crispy on the outside but soft and warm on the inside), strawberry terrine with some form of desiccated coconut and cream cheese with haskap berry compote. The cream cheese was so light and the tartness of the compote a perfect accompaniment to it.

Would give this meal 10 stars if I could.
