From the moment we stepped into this Michelin one-star gem owned by the Watanabe family, we were enveloped in a world of hospitality that surpassed all expectations. Ms. Watanabe's warm welcome set the tone, and her detailed explanations of each dish, accompanied by visual aids, added a delightful layer to the dining experience.

The exceptional food stole the spotlight—each dish was a masterpiece, skillfully prepared with the freshest ingredients and an artful combination of flavors. The presentation was a feast for the eyes, as each plate showcased the chef's dedication to perfection.

Our dining table, strategically placed next to a large window, provided a breathtaking view of the autumn leaves in the thoughtfully decorated front yard garden. The seasonal beauty outside seamlessly blended with the culinary artistry inside, elevating the overall experience to new heights.

Watanabe's Kaiseki haven is not just a restaurant; it's a journey through impeccable taste, genuine hospitality, and the enchanting beauty of nature. A truly unforgettable dining adventure.

The Watanabe family hosted us a spectacular dinner. We booked on Omakase.in a few weeks earlier.

The course was gorgeous, the seating was intimate, and the family were gracious. We have never had such a comfortable experience.

We very much enjoyed all of the fresh ingredients prepared in front of you and had a delight picking our own sake cups from their expansive collection.

Mrs. Watanabe, our hostess for the night took immense care showing us the ingredients in picture and in English. Truly, an impeccable dining experience.


This intimate dining experience is not to be missed in Kyoto. Run by the Watanabe family, the food is superb and served with warmth. The highlight is definitely the uni, some of the best I’ve ever had!

Translated from Japanese:

I went there at the time of the coronavirus (2022), so there were only one or two groups per day. Although it was reserved for the day, it was very comfortable and relaxing, and the customer service was excellent as they asked for food and drinks at the right time. The vessels are nice and the sake is delicious...
