Other seasonal delicacies find a place in our celebration of Japanese flavours, recommended in particular for those visiting from abroad. Prices start at JPY 16,000 (Subject to 15% service charge and 8% consumption tax).

Kyoto Bakushu Craft Beer

Kizakura Kyotobakushu is the first craft beer in Kyoto established in 1995 by Fushimi ward’s largest sake brewerer, Kizakura. Enjoy the selection of beers on tap or try our beer tasting set with our a la carte menu that includes the likes of Kyoto Kuro Shichimi Spicy Sausage.
Meet the Team
Tsuyoshi IryoHead Chef
Chef Iryo sees it as his cultural duty to showcase the abundance of Kyoto's fresh ingredients in dishes that encapsulate Brasserie’s ethos. Take his signature crispy amadai: a snapper-like fish cooked Matsukasa-yaki style enveloped by a crystal clear crustacean consommé with local ginger. Or his equally noteworthy duck confit with maple and sansho pepper for a teriyaki twist, served with Kyoto brown rice risotto.
“I like simplicity. Our team is very selective when it comes to ingredients."

The Lounge & Bar
Enjoy a homemade croissant and a fresh cappuccino while you catch up on emails in our casual lobby lounge, or come nightfall, relax with a Kyoto-inspired cocktail in our comfortable lounge seats.
Tucked away in our historic ikeniwa sits our traditional tea house, where Japanese sweets and matcha tea is served and an evening glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne on the terrace provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the sparkling light of the pond’s reflections.
