This restaurant has a very authentic french menu and a lovely wine list (all French). The manager here is excellent and goes out of his way to help everyone. The food is terrific. I wish they had given a little more attention into the decor.

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
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to

clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
