When it comes to fine dining in Gion, it’s often a trip to the unknown. But starting from a name you can read even if you don’t know any Japanese, Gion Calf offers a fine dining experience that is a bit out of the ordinary in Gion, and in a good way. So while their dishes are up to the incredibly high-quality standards expected in Gion, the experience is not as stiff as you might expect, but instead, it’s about having fun eating some excellent food, and even better wagyu steaks.
One thing you may also expect from Japanese fine dining is very small portions, but don’t worry; at Gion Calf the portions are definitely big enough, all though to the dessert.
The name Gion Calf doesn’t only come from calves, but it’s actually also an acronym taken from the words Cordial, Appetite, Luxury, and Feast. So you can expect all this from Gion Calf!
