Where to eat & Drink in Madarao
Being a smaller resort, naturally Madarao village is a bit smaller than the more well-known resorts. That’s changing though, and new restaurants, bars and night-spots are opening every season. Here is a breakdown of some of our favourite spots.
The Restaurant @ Raicho
Of course we couldn’t start without mentioning how honoured we are to host Kermis for the 2018-2019 winter season. Kermis is a dining concept by Chef Nobu, who has been touring Japan with his pop-up concepts. An expert chef, having honed his talent as a chef in the kitchen of Joël Robuchon in Tokyo, Nobu san brings an impressive level of creativity and attention to produce and detail to his concepts for Kermis, and you can expect to be wowed by the presentation and delighted by the flavours.
Aki's Pub & Cafe
Aki's Pub & Cafe brews some good coffee if you’re looking for your caffeine fix, and their oven baked pizzas are a local specialty. At night you can expect free flowing cocktails, ice cold beers and lively music. This is one of those places that is good for the soul!
Drop Off Bar & Cafe Madarao
The Drop Off Bar and Cafe opens early in the day to make sure all those early risers hunting the first lifts have somewhere to grab some breakfast, a cup of coffee & snacks for the day.
Located inside Madarao Kogen Hotel, the Danro offers patrons a wide selection of beverages to enjoy in front of a cozy fireplace. The Danro is a perfect place to relax and recuperate after a big day on the slopes.
If you’re looking for a burger bar look no further than Unajaune Madarao. Last year they held a Triple J Hottest 100 party on January 27th, so look out for that if you’re visiting from Australia and looking for a taste of home while you’re in Madarao.
The Shaggy Yak
Last but not least, any list of apres snow options would not be complete without The Shaggy Yak. This cozy little place has a great vibe filled with fun, cold beers, spirits to warm your soul and you’ll be singing along to the music and loving the Madarao life in no time!
That’s just a few of the places that you can find around Madarao to get a bite to eat and enjoy a glass or two of your favourite drink. I hope to see you around at one of these places in the coming season. Let us know in the comments what you think of these spots, or if you have a personal favourite that I didn’t mention - I’m always looking for a new place to try!
