It's May now, and I went in February so it's taken me a little while to review this place, but I loved it here. I came by myself, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food is in the upper middle bracket of cost...More

This was a great Japanese experience. I think it's a must do and must eat in Japan. I had the assorted beef cuts witch was just amazing. Also had the assorted offal cuts.. and that was so weird but again you have to try it.

Tucked away in a back-street, Matsuzakagyu What's was easy enough to find with the help of a smartphone map, just a couple of stops on the subway from Kyoto station. Cool ambiance and private rooms make it an exclusive experience. Staff are most welcoming even...More

This place was the perfect combination of the best beef you can eat in Japan (Matsusaka beef is even better than Kobe beef, as I learned from my Japanese colleagues), and a casual environment that enables you to relax and enjoy every bite. With all...More

Amazing dinner in Kyoto with the Matsusaka meat, less-known but even better quality meat than Kobe's. The meat was absolutely fabulous, as well as the ambience and service. Of course all this had a price, but it was absolutely worth it: all my family, with...More

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
