    Kyoto Kyoutoshi Sakyou-ku Okazakikitagoshochou 46
    This is an old-fashioned retro-western style restaurant that was opened more than 50 years ago in 1967. Demi-glace sauce made from variety of vegetables is abundantly used in most dishes on the menu. The omelet with rice, a popular menu, can be selected from three sizes: small, medium, or large. On the menu besides omelet, visitors can enjoy fried shrimp, fried chicken and hearty hamburg stake.

    We tried the omurice, chicken Cutlet, beef hash on rice and the croquette. They were ok. Not bad. But nothing to queue for.

    This restaurant in a freestanding house next to the five-storied pagoda in the Higashiyama Ward of Kyoto City in Kyoto Prefecture serves authentic Italian food that is prepared primarily with Kyoto-produced ingredients. To offer a taste unique to Kyoto, they go so far as to use Kyoto water in their cooking in addition to Kyoto vegetables. Made with an effort to draw out the flavor, texture and appearance, their various dishes such as the mushroom risotto or lamb with charcoal-grilled vegetables (both standard items on the menu ever since it opened) are bound to capture the palate of gourmands. The restaurant also garners attention for its elegant exterior of a restored Japanese home and its beautiful interior decorated in modern Western style.

    This restaurant is small and charming. The food is thoughtfully prepared and is delicious. We will definitely return.

    This dining bar and cafe is in the New Miyako Hotel. RONDE provides a mature experience of the essence of Japan with Kyoto dining. The lunch menu changes monthly and they have a choice buffet and ladies' lunch. It's chic yet with hearty portions, and the reasonable prices keep it popular. Their excellent Ronde Burger comes recommended. Limited to 10 a day, it's made with a 120-gram domestic beef patty.

    The selection of breakfast food was very dissapointing. If it wasnt included in the booking, we weould have eaten somewhere else.

Kyoto Main Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
