With grand views of an Hokkaido icon, the unique cuisine at Restaurant MINAMI goes beyond conventions

A five-minute walk from Sapporo Station, Restaurant MINAMI is conveniently located across from the elaborate arabesque building of the Red Brick Office, a symbol of the city.

Guests that step into the dining room are greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows that face west, overlooking this civic monument -- some visitors say that they cannot forget the view.

Restaurant MINAMI is a French restaurant that is representative of the acclaimed Hiramatsu Group, a family of restaurants all over the country with excellent food and hospitality as its core strengths.

Calling the city of Sapporo his hometown, head chef Daisuke Minami worked as a chef at Hiroo’s restaurants, including Restaurant Hiramatsu and Sapporo Le Baerenthal (currently L’Auberge de L’ill Sapporo), before becoming a chef at the opening of Restaurant MINAMI in September 2018. One of the few restaurants in the Hiramatsu stable named after its head chef, this honour reflects the team’s depth of trust and expertise in Minami, as well as the chef’s ability to refine the skills and sensibilities inherited from the founder.

The restaurant’s cuisine is characterized by a borderless transmission of each ingredient’s original flavor, while inheriting the traditions of French cooking. This Gallic sensibility benefits from taking Hokkaido’s unique, rich tradition of produce as a jumping off point, such as hairy crab from Okhotsk in the spring; corn harvested on summer mornings; autumnal pumpkin and squash; and wild game in winter. Such a style can be said to be something diners can only taste here. And, in order to maximise each ingredient’s goodness, dishes are simple in concept, with the aim of creating memorable dishes that remain with guests.

To elevate the experience further, the wine list benefits from the extensive lineup of bottles owned by the Hiramatsu Group as a whole. Mainly French, more than 80 varieties of wine are available by the bottle, while several are always available by the glass. Pairings are also offered.

Elegantly lit by acres of natural light during the day and chandeliers at night, each table faces the restaurant’s windows and enjoys breathtaking views. The restaurant offers 148 seats (a 32-seat dining room, 110 seats in a salon, and four private rooms accommodating 6 to 16 guests). Excellent for couples, the restaurant is an excellent venue for company dinners, celebrations, and anniversaries; it is also popular with children. Service is also available in English.

Symbolic of Sapporo, Restaurant MINAMI is an extraordinary restaurant where memories are made.
