Enjoy authentic French cuisine in a Kyoto town house built over 100 years ago
Restaurant Epice is located on the eastern side of the Kyoto Imperial Palace, a 6-minute walk west from Keihan Demachiyanagi Station. The restaurant is in a renovated Kyoto town house which was built over 100 years ago, and it specializes in authentic French cuisine with the spotlight given to local produce.
They only have a course menu for both lunch and dinner. There are two courses for lunch, one for 2,200 yen and the other for 3,200 yen. Their dinner courses are 4,900 yen, 8,000 yen, and 10,000 yen, and the two more expensive dinner courses need to be reserved at least three days in advance.
The main specialty of restaurant Epice has to be their locally grown vegetables. The restaurant’s signature dish is the beautiful vegetable terrine which is served at dinner. In this dish, you can taste the “living vegetables” which are pesticide-free and organic. When going to the Kyoto Imperial Palace or Shimogamo Shrine, remember to also make a reservation to Restaurant Epice.
