Authentic French restaurant near Tokyo station.

This was a nice find for dinner on our first night in Tokyo - very good, authentic French cuisine, well prepared and served, and we felt we had plenty of time in the 2 weeks ahead of us in Japan to eat Japanese food. Busy restaurant, with attentive staff.

I went here with a business colleague recently for lunch and was extremely impressed with the whole meal. The bread on arrival was just beautiful and the service very efficient. We both ordered the fish special which was 2 kinds of fish, grilled, served with seasonal vegetables and a lovely rich tomato based sauce with capers - really nice combination... More

The French food here has a strong Japanese influence--making it better than French or Japanese by itself. The baked goods are excellent and always fresh.

Their baguette is as splendid as it was 10 years ago. I've had lunch and dinner a couple of times at VIRON, which, if I remember correctly, has been located in Shibuya for over 10 years. I got an ardent impression of their bread, especially the baguette. It had a wonderful aroma and was supreme. I haven't encountered such an... More

We decide to give it another try during the weekends, and it was full to the brim! No seats were available for lunch, and it was only 11am! But we did ordered some baguette sandwiches to go and some eclairs. It was summer, and no ice was given for the chocolate eclairs. Luckily we were staying at Palace Hotel, nearby... More

Breakfast was so good we came back for lunch. Pasteries was really good and the steak was perfect. The toilet seat opens and closes automaticly. What more can you wish for?

Eat lunch here relatively regularly, and always have the Steak Frites which is one of the best available in Tokyo. They open at 11:30 for lunch and they get VERY busy, so book ahead as if you show up on the day you may have to wait a while to get in. The bread they make here is fantastic, they... More

The bill adds up... but this is a good place for some nice breads and pastries with a big variety of jams, honeys and spreads for a late breakfast downtown. (I go to the one in Shibuya) My favorite thing is probably what I always take to go after breakfast: the baguette du campagne... rough pate with cornichon pickles. Simple... More

We went to the one in Shibuya. One morning we had pastries from downstairs with coffee upstairs and another morning we had a set breakfast with breads, a selection of jams, and 2 pastries each and bottomless coffee. Way too much in the end but a nice breakfast considering not many places are actually open for breakfast!

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
