Admire the delicate beauty of everything from appetizers to desserts [il cipresso Gion

The omakase course, prepared by Chef Shota Chamuro, is served while enjoying a view of the Japanese-style garden with its distinctive stone lanterns. Chef Chamuro, who has studied French cuisine at hotels, aims to create gorgeous, detailed, and exciting dishes.

While based on Italian regional cuisine, he is also adept at incorporating French techniques and Japanese ingredients. He uses the colors of the season's ingredients to create a beautiful and skillful dish.

il cipresso appetizer

An example of an evening omakase course priced at 14,520 yen. Spring peas, such as snap peas, broad beans, and edamame (green soybeans), take center stage in this appetizer. Scallop mousse lurks underneath, and the sauce is richly flavored with herbs and butter.

The first floor has private rooms with impressive U-shaped tables, and the second floor has Western-style private rooms with antique furniture, so we recommend spending time with family and friends. Enjoy the Italian wines carefully selected by the sommelier and get intoxicated at night in Gion.

il cipresso Main

The main meat dish is a fillet of Kyoto princess beef grilled at low temperature. The filet, which has a good amount of fat and a rich lean taste, is served with a rich sauce made from simmering red wine. Served with seasonal vegetables and herbs

il cipresso dolce

Dessert is a strawberry jelly made with rosé wine syrup. On top is a crispy baked langue d'ocha. The ice cream flavored with kobu mandarin oranges is refreshing!
