A popular casual French restaurant to enjoy authentic French cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere
If you walk north along Teramachi Street from the subway at Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station, you’ll come up on an area of town that is well-known for its recent boom of tourists from overseas looking for antiques. It’s in that same area that Le Bouchon is located. With its brick exterior, large open doors and terrace seating along the outside, Le Bouchon has a warm and inviting dining atmosphere that feels like a French street corner restaurant that all of the locals flock to.
Besides the restaurant’s ambiance, the best thing about Le Bouchon is that you can casually enjoy authentic French food for a low cost. For dinner they offer a large menu of both hors d'oeuvres and main entrees, as well as a selection of desserts. The meal itself comes to ¥2,880 or more. For lunch they offer a choice of four different main entrees with salad and bread included for ¥1,240. They also have a selection of wine and other drinks to start your meal off.
Between the dining atmosphere, reasonably priced food, and waitstaff that can speak fluent English, patrons are sure to have a remarkably satisfying experience when they dine at Le Bouchon. The restaurant is bustling both day and night, since it attracts locals from Kyoto as well as tourists from abroad. The staff here at Sharing Kyoto highly recommends that you check out Le Bouchon if you ever happen to stop by Teramachi Street.
