This is a little gem of a place. French cuisine cooked by Japanese chef trained in Lyon. Can it be any better? Sitting in a packed rustic restaurant with French decor and menu to match. Lots of trendy young Japanese and European customers to complete...More

Because our daughter had been living in rural Gunma for 9 months, longing for her favorites = Salade Lyonnais, Duck Confit, Foie Gras and Clafouti. The Foie was sold out but everything else was on the menu. She was thrilled. This is not a fine...More

Friendly, relaxed, well cooked and authentic country-style cooking. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I rarely book restaurants but our local family advised its usually a good idea here as they're often booked out. They were also flexible enough to cater to two vegetarians in our group...More

We went based on the good reviews below, but were rather disappointed. Whilst the restarting may be trying to go for the authentic French bistro ambiance, it felt tired and dated, and could do with a refresh. The place was filled with more greasy smoke...More

Visited here almost every morning while in Kyoto. Everything was fresh and still warm when you get there in between 7-8am. If you don't want a sit down breakfast and would prefer something savoury to have on the move you can't go past here.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
