You can enjoy really great and amazing tastes of beef in combination with private barbecue rooms but also great service (including Japanese entertainment). Fluently spoken English!

The set-up of this elegant restaurant is full of charm. The food was delicious but the wagyu portions are small (for european persons :)). Special mention for the bibimbap as well. Staff is efficient and nice.

Read about this place in advance and decided on it as our wagyu experience of Kyoto. Did not disappoint. Absolutely gorgeous and well worth every penny.

Easily one of the best bbq restaurant in Kyoto. Stylish, yet traditional (you need to take your shoes off). Excellent meat and service, nice atmosphere although a bit too warm. Not cheap but worth it. One small complaint: too little beef for the price (bear...More

I really don't understand the reviews on this place. Their lowest priced beef set is up to 6000 yen, and it's a pretty small portion. On top of that, they were hopelessly confusing in describing how much you got per order. Then there's the garlic...More

is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and

Please call them. They have servers who speak English and one of them speaks English very well. Have you tried calling the Google number? I don't know what day is April 7th but unless it's a big party, they should have space. More
