This is truly a remarkable restaurant. Over the years we have eaten here over 30 times and not once have we had a bad meal or witnessed bad service. From the service to the sashimi to the sake, Kyoto is one of Managua's best. We have tried other Japanese restaurants in the city but none compare to Kyoto at Barcelo.... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and keep on returning. So far nothing compares in Managua. The staff are efficient and very helpful. The sashimi, wakame, miso, agedashi tofu and soba are divine! The preparation, ingredients and execution of the dishes all translate into tasty Japanese food. Top it up with warm sake and kanpai!

I've been here with my colleagues and several times with my family. If you want to find real good sashimi and sushi (makis, nigiris, etc) this is the place to go. Also I'd recommend the mix tempura and the yakimeshi. We lived abroad for about 5 years and my daughters love Japanese food so we tried all locations to finally... More

This place is in the ground floor of the Barcelo Hotel but guests can also order from here for room service. They have an indoor as well as an outdoor dining space. They have a good selection in their menu. For appetizer, I had the deep fried tofu which was crispy on the bottom but melts in your mouth .... More

I have photos saved but I ate here about a year ago! I loved the ambiance, I enjoyed the hospitality! Extraclean! I enjoyed watching the excellent precision of the skilled sushi chef! I loved the Miso Soup, several different types of sushi rolls, and Saki! It can get crowded at dinner I advise getting there a little early! This is... More

With out a doubt best sushi in Managua. Kyoto is located inside hotel Barcelo, they have indoor seating with AC and outside terrace seating. Excellent service and food. Not on the cheap side for Managua restaurants.

This is a Korean restaurant pretending to be Japanese prepared by uninspired Nicaraguans. This was the worst sushi I've ever had in my life. The rice was over done while the fish elements were no more than a slivers for looks without flavor unless dipped in the soy sauce. I had to repeatedly ask for wassabi. It seemed the owners... More

Hands down this is the best place to eat sushi or any other japanese cuisine. the restaurant is on par with its oriental look and feel. The best item on the menu is the "Barco" which contains a lot of different types of seafood. It is on the pricey side when it comes to the other restaurants, but its because... More
