Fodor's Review

Near Nanzen-ji Temple, Kikusui serves elegant kaiseki ryori meals with an aristocratic flair. Dine on tatami mats at low tables or at table-and-chair seating, all overlooking an elegant Japanese garden. The subtle flavors of the set menus are intended to be offset by the scenic view, where a canopy of pink and white cherry blossoms accents the light spring menus and fiery red and orange maples highlight the warm flavors of stews in autumn. Kyo-no-aji, smaller versions

of kaiseki ryori served for lunch, let you savor Kikusui's elegant setting and fine cuisine for ¥5,000. This large restaurant seats 200, yet the serene vista makes it feels cozy and intimate.
