Do not be fooled by the humble appearance, the service charge or the fact that the restaurant is cash only. This is one of the best French meals you will eat - anywhere. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I also can't wait to return. The food is perfect and the prices are very reasonable. Truly amazing and at a truly amazing price.

I came here on my first night in Kyoto because I craved French food - so glad that I did. The waitress went through the whole menu in English for me giving me individual attention. Along with my drinks I was treated to an selection of amuse bouches which went down very well. I had moules mariniere which was light and flavoursome with excellent frites to accompany. I chose to have duck which was extremely professionally cooked and delicately presented with fondant potato, a selection of vegetables and a rich jus. Finally I had a selection of the day's desserts - creme brûlée, chocolate cake and a baked cheesecake with ice cream. The venue is small but has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were most welcoming. Be aware that it is cash only and is quite pricey but I think it is well worth it.

The service was first class, the food divine, the wine superb and the music French! We'll be going again.

On the recomendation of a long term Kyoto resident and culinary expert, I took Japanese friends to a la Chalamont as a thank you gift. We were very happy with the evening in this cosy, relaxed, French atmosphere.
We all enjoyed the excellent and well-presented food! We ordered several dishes and shared them family-style as the delightful (and English speaking) staff brought them to the table one by one - it was a fun way to share the many taste treats.
The food, presentation, service, relaxed ambiance, location, - all were such a pleasure.
I highly recommend a la Chalamont.

My partner and I went to " A la Chalaumont " on the last night of our trip to Japan, after 10 days of having really good japanese food, we were in need of a change, so we picked this restaurant. And it exceeded all of our expectations. The couple gracefully offered us a really nice night, the service and the food were simply exquisite.
Thank you very much for this experience.
