As traveling foreigners we love variety, and sometimes tire of local cuisine, we were very lucky to find this Kyoto treasure. As are many restaurants in Japan. A la Chalamont is small... .it seats 15+. Where possible, call ahead to reserve a table. The restaurant is essentially a two person operation: the chef and his wife. Both are very personable and very efficient, but this isn't a "quick in quick out experience". Plan to spend two hours and enjoy a great bottle of wine, conversation and a terrific meal. The restaurant is informal. The interior is charming and reminiscent of a French countryside bistro. The air is filled with delicious scents and the sound of vintage French cabaret music. The food is delicious and you will find yourself returning night after night.
