If you are a guest at penke panke lodge, this is where you will have your breakfast. at night, this bar is a lot of fun. the bartenders are friendly and enjoy drinking themselves. the firepit outside is a nice cozy place to hang.

Penke Bar is a fun, small bar in Wadano. Nice and cosy on a cold evening after skiing. Excellent small nibble plates to share x chilli edamame and karaage chicken were standouts. They also have live music on some evenings. It’s a good idea to...book as it is often quite full.More

Funky little bar, very Australian. The parmi was decent, the chicken croissant was pretty great. Very chaotic otherwise with so many people crammed into such a small space.

This funky little bar / cafe which appears to be an Aussie favorite hang out, does serve really tasty food. However, what is really annoying is going there early for dinner with a young child to beat peak hour and having to wait for over...an hour for food. Their excuse was that a large table has arrived before us - that shouldn’t be our problem - staff the restaurant appropriately. We only went there on the recommendation from staff at the accommodation we were staying at ( Asuka lodge ) who told us they didn’t take booking. The first thing we were asked on arrival was “did we have a booking”? I like their concept, but maybe put on some more staff in peak season.More

First time in Hakuba and this was first meal of the trip. Overall good atmosphere and good drink prices. Wall art was groovy. Food was decent is reasonably priced. Only reasons for not getting a 5 star was; 1) the chicken was slightly overcooked and...I was expected to dine with a tough chicken beast using a butter knife. 2) there were no wine glasses when I ordered a bottle of wine. Overall nice warmly place to relax.More

We were a large group. Its a small bar, with benches and tables. Staff were fun very helpful and energetic, allowing us a few karaoke songs before the younger generation arrived around 9:30pm and open to the floor. As mentioned in other reviews the chicken...escalope was large (you could share) .The sticky apple pudding is a must. Food was very tasty and Highly Recommend .More
