Even though I had my vehicle inspected 2 months ago, my 4th visit was delayed by 1 hour and 20 minutes due to an unexpected battery drain m(_ _)m
As usual, we had a course of amuse, 4 appetizers recommended by the chef, main fish dish, granita, meat dish, abandi sale, gradle di sale, small sweets, and drinks ♥♥♥♥♥
All the dishes were exciting, seasonal, and very delicious ♥♥♥♥♥
I was in such a hurry that I forgot to take a picture of Amuse m(_ _)m

Visiting "La Cachet" for the first time in 3 months on a trip with the sole purpose of eating while walking ♥♥♥
I remembered that the food I had last time was so delicious that I decided to come back.

○Burdock croquette
I love the exquisite combination of the taste and aroma of burdock and the béchamel sauce.

○Lily root cream
A cream sauce with a combination of lily root and milk...I thought it would be delicious with anything.
Is the slight bitterness of lily root an accent?

○Sable of butterbur
The slight bitterness made me feel like spring.

[Chef's recommended dishes]
○Mushroom and cod milt meuniere
The mushroom sauce and crispy fried onions went perfectly with the slightly rich milt, making it very delicious.

○Cold scallops
The scallops, avocado, root vegetables, and persimmons were mixed with the salmon roe jelly sauce to create a carpaccio-style dish, and the oiliness of the avocado combined very well, making it extremely delicious.

○Yuzu scented snow crab risotto
The snow crab risotto has a crab flavor that spreads in your mouth, and is it ginkgo? It became an accent, and with the addition of cheese, it was very delicious.

○Cold Parma ham, pear and foie gras
The refreshing sweetness and slightly textured pear, the salty taste of the prosciutto, and the greasy amount of foie gras mixed with the balsamic sauce made it very delicious.

Both the turnip cake style olive bread and the rye bread had a rich aroma and were delicious as if they were helping the presentation of the dish.
For some reason, it's perfect for eating without leaving any sauce on each plate...

Like last time, the sauce is so delicious that you don't need butter or olive oil...♥♥♥♥♥

【fish dishes】
○Poale white balsamic brown sauce of Spanish mackerel
The mackerel was cooked medium-rare, and the sauce, Jerusalem artichoke chips, and slightly aromatic accompanying vegetables matched well and was very delicious.

Lime granita is perfect for refreshing your palate!!

○Roast Miyazaki Kuroge Wagyu beef loin
The heat was perfect, the meat was soft and the juices were trapped, and it went perfectly with the mustard sauce, making it very delicious. The accompanying vegetables were also delicious.

○Wagyu beef cheek stew in wine
It was so soft and fluffy that I didn't even have to chew it, and it was very delicious.
I thought that the vegetables and mashed potatoes that came with it went well with the stew.

[Avande sale]
○ Kumquat pudding
The taste and aroma of sweetly boiled kumquats filled my mouth and was delicious.

○Brie cheese ice cream with mandarin orange madeleine
The slight aroma of alcohol and cheese made it feel like an adult ice cream, and it went well with the madeleine and was delicious.

○Coffee-flavored caramel and apple soufflé
The sweet apple soufflé, bitter gelatinous coating, and caramel go well together, making it a rich dessert for adults.It was very delicious.

[Small sweets and coffee]
・Strawberry part de fruit
・Matcha cake
・Black sesame sable
All of the small dates were delicious and had a mysterious charm that made me want to visit them again.

Lastly, although it was reserved for private use, I was able to visit a French restaurant, which was the main purpose of my food tour in Nara, and I am glad that I was able to spend a very meaningful time there.

We hope to visit you again sometime between spring and summer.

Although it is a French restaurant quite far from the center of Nara, we think it is worth a visit as it is extremely cost-effective in terms of taste and food content.

🌟🌟The store where I had the best time🌟🌟
After relaxing at the hotel after lunch, I had originally planned to visit with plenty of time, but due to heavy traffic, I arrived at the designated spot on the navigation system in 10 minutes, but the sun was setting and it was dark, so I couldn't find the store a few meters away. I ended up calling for help over the phone.

It really was a French restaurant located in a residential area. The chic interior is based on dark oak and white, making you feel like you've traveled back in time.The audience seats are spacious, and the cool music from the old days is played without being too harsh on the ears, creating a relaxed atmosphere. I had a great time.
The food is 🌟 super~ super~ amazing 🌟
From the beginning to the end of the meal, I was constantly excited to see what would come out.
I don't know anything about cooking, but this was a very delicious meal and the way it was served that made me feel like it was 👑royal French cuisine👑.

I'm already thinking about visiting again since it's 2 and a half hours away. I think I will be able to visit you without hesitation this time.

Finally, thank you for providing us with wonderful food and time m(_ _)m


An elegant building stands out in a quiet residential area.
This is a great restaurant that has been serving great food for many years. No corners are cut from the appetizer to the final drink. They are very particular about the brand of tea they serve, and all the tableware is made from expensive items.
The color and taste of the food stand out even more.
The homemade bread is also super delicious.
In addition, Madame, who is also a sommelier, selects wines that go well with meals.
I am grateful that such a delicious and cost-effective French restaurant is located quietly in a residential area of ​​Nara and has been open for a long time.


The soup was salty. It was just as rumored that this restaurant was extremely salty 💧 I didn't ask about the choice of meat, but the pork was 💦


A French restaurant located in a residential area a little far from Nara. The atmosphere of the shop is calm. The carefully prepared food is served on very beautiful plates. Not only does it look good, but it's also very delicious. The dishes created by the chef's kindness and serious personality are served one after another. The explanations of the dishes are thorough.


I ordered a full course lunch and all the dishes were very delicious.
