Wow! We have been privileged to have eaten in many of the worlds greatest restaurants, and this meal was up there with the very best. Five stars really don't come close to doing them justice.

French 'kaisecki-style' multi-course set dinner, with a team who are happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements - they even speak passable English and French. Each dish was a work of art...but even more importantly, the flavours were powerful and vibrant, and the ingredients of impeccable quality.

This restaurant isn't cheap - at around $220 pp excluding drinks - but it is amazing value for money. Strongly recommended, and would definitely return next time we gone to Kyoto.

A real treat, prepare to be spoiled. Unforgettable tasting menu and a unique experience. Attention to every detail and a menu tailored to your taste. Opt for outside dining if available and you won't be disappointed. The proprietor and chef has a passion for food with many years of experience. Never have I felt so welcomed. Kyoto meets France... A very unique blend.

Lovely restaurant in a very cool part of Kyoto - very lively street. Fascinating mix of Japanese Kaiser and french flavors - the foie gras was outstanding, as was the fish course (fabulous flavors) - service impeccable.
Definitely worth a visit!

One of the best French cuisine in Kyoto, very authentic, not like typical nouvelle cuisine, ingenious with by local fresh ingredient foodstuff, which Chef INOUE has created in last 3 decades in Kyoto.
Highly recommended for those who loves the most sophisticated food art work, this is an ideal harmonized fruit of French traditional method and Kyoto "DASHI" culture.

Location is in the middle of PONTO-cho, the most romantic lane along the River Kamogawa. 2 story wooden Japanese old house will bring us to almost like a Time travel experience. From the private room, the view of the River and Hogashiyama mountains are splendid and at the counter you will enjoy casual but warm hospitality from friendly but very polite garcon and Serveur.

Kyoto is not only for Japanese cuisine lovers. Misogigawa is no doubt one of the best Frence cuisine in Japan. Based on the traditional French cooking method, owner chef INOUE has created novel original his own style. Fresh Kyoto Vegetable, white snapper, are well cooked but gave as an impression like everything so fresh as tasting like sashimi-raw. Japanese Beef is off course, the most tender like foam and recommend to take stake with Blue or rare. Very reasonable at lunch then, worth for paying with our family and friends which guarantee you the best momorable dinner in Kyoto.
