Very nice!!


10/16 Lunch, about 6,000 yen menu,
The French cuisine next to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine is quite unique in its fusion of Japanese ingredients such as raw fish and eel. The freshness of the raw fish appetizer and the sauce are very delicious. The eel is light but the sauce is delicious, and the pepper pork cheek is slightly salty but soft. Tender and fragrant, the chef will introduce the ingredients kindly when serving the dish, and he can communicate in English and French.
Because there are not many seats, it is recommended to make a reservation online.


Anyway, the material is wonderful.
And dishes that take advantage of its characteristics
When you take a bite, you can honestly say, ``It's delicious!''
The host was very kind and we had a pleasant meal.
The location is near Kitano Tenmangu Shrine and there is a coin parking nearby, so it is easy to use.


Translated from Japanese:

This was my third visit to the 33 temples of Kannon in Rakuyo, and I visited 8 temples, including Seiwa-in Temple, the 33rd temple. After visiting Higashimukai Kannonji, the 31st temple, we headed to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine and had lunch at Racine in front of the east gate. There are only a few seats...


Translated from Japanese:

On a Sunday in November, my wife and daughter were invited to have lunch at a French restaurant at the Higashi-sando entrance of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. Fortunately, this time it was my birthday celebration lunch. The store is small with only 10 seats including counter seats and table seats...


Translated from Japanese:

Last week we had lunch and this week we had dinner and we had a great time with delicious food and wine. Not only is the food delicious, but the homemade bread is delicious!
