The food was sublime, the service perfect and the place superb. A very unique combination of Japanese culinary excellence with a French twist. The wine list is also excellent. A memorable evening, thank you !


Returning after 6 months and it is still a very special moment for all of us to have a dinner at La Forme d’Eternité : perfect selection of ingredients - including an impressive wine list - perfect cooking, tasty food, refined presentation. Congratulations !


I've been a fan since I was at Utsubohoncho in Osaka, but since I moved to Nara, I've been going every year.


Although the interior is luxurious, it has a woody feel that makes it a relaxing space.

The restaurant is run by the owner, the chef, and the wife of the sommelier.

The dishes use Nara ingredients as much as possible.

This time too, plenty of ingredients from Nara were used, and the main meat I had was grilled Yamatocha sheep, which you don't see very often yet.

I don't like wild game because it has a strong animal smell, but this sheep was so flavorful that I could mistake it for red meat, and the fat was sweet, so it was very delicious😋

Also, this was my first time ordering a wine pairing, and it goes perfectly with the food✨✨

Thank you for always teaching me various things 😊


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are operating with reduced seating capacity.

I think it's best to make a reservation in advance before going!


I visited for my birthday lunch! It was very delicious😋


The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxing,
A French restaurant with seasonings that highlight the quality of the ingredients.
It's not too traditional, but it's a modern French restaurant that makes use of carefully selected and local ingredients.
Although they moved from Osaka and had other staff members, the business is currently run by a married couple. Courses were available during the day and a la carte at night, but the evening courses are now available only by reservation.
When ordering a la carte, each item was a bit large, but the total volume of the course was just right.
At night, you can choose from 5,000 yen, 8,000 yen, and 11,000 yen courses.
The difference between 5,000 yen and 8,000 yen is that there is one more appetizer and the grade of the main course changes.
Since I was there, I chose the 8,000 yen course.
I was just full from the main dish.
But the desserts were also delicious and filled my stomach.
I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of arrangement the course will have✨

I miss the a la carte Lyon-style salad...
