I am pretty sure that they got their 3Michelin stars from the environment of the restaraunt because I cant see what else would have gotten them this high rating. The food was disappointing with sub-par quality. Examples are the yellowtail sashimi we got was chewy...More

Maybe it is a cultural divide but my wife and I did not enjoy our dinner at Hyotei at all. We had multiple occasions to have very fine Japanese dinners during our stay in Japan, Hyotei was not one of them. Yes, it is very...More

My 22-year old son and I were so looking forward to dining at Hyotei. About 3-1/2 years ago we had gone to Kikunoi (main location in Kyoto) along with other members of our family. Both Hyotei and Kikunoi are 3-star Michelin-rated. Since we were truly...More

Shinise establishment. Dine like old-time samurai .... "eating off the tatami floor". Wonderful experience. The menu, simple & traditional. Not breathtaking. Sengi-kori.

We really can't recommend Hyotei. Perhaps resting on its laurels? Try breakfast, if you must go. Perhaps the worst value (quality/cost) of any restaurant we have been to in the world. See the other 3 star reviews. Really, go somewhere else in Kyoto.

Traditional breakfast served for 4500 yen per person. While expensive, it was absolutely amazing and far less than what you would be expected to pay for lunch or dinner. Service was fast and not many people there at 8am on a Friday.

We booked through our hotel for our 'significant' birthdays. In Sydney you don't get Michelin starred restaurants so we were very keen to try this one. What can I say: as soon as we stepped through the doors and into our private dining room we...More

I have enjoyed the very special breakfast served at Hyotei on numerous occasions. I have also long since felt that the food in the 3 Michelin starred establishments in Kyoto lack excitement. A dinner at Chihana a few months ago was a distinct let down....More

The beauty of the place and the food is unquestionable, as is the service, but I'm not sure if the food is as good as it can be in Kyoto give the price. Would have liked to have tried another kaiseki restaurant to give a...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
