Tiny little jewel in an immensely beautiful area of Kyoto. When we walked past this restaurant we thought it would have high-end prices. However we found beautifully made and high quality dishes at a middle of the range price. Therefore value for money was top.

The food was delicious and fresh, but I wouldn't say it was very unique, besides the egg soufflé. It's simple and traditional food in a lovely setting. A great place for a quiet, pleasant meal.
