Amazing through to the very last bite

We were lucky to getting a table during lunchtime without much advance booking (recommended). Every dish was superbly executed, beautifully presented, and equally delicious. Highly recommended for foodies and particularly those who appreciate the simple yet complex favors of Japanese cuisine .

I found the quality of food very good and fresh with a perfect combination of Japanese cousine with Spanish products. It took around 3 hours to finish the entire meal that give the possibility to taste slowly each dish. The waiter explain in detail all the dishes. They have a fantastic wine menu.

Excellent Japanese cuisine. Fresh and very well prepared. Very pricey but you can almost forget about it after you taste the quality dishes they offer.

It's only the 2nd time since visiting Japan that I can say that I have been in a Japanese restaurant and felt it was true to the experience of Japanese cuisine in Japan. We ordered one of the set menus and were extremely happy with the procession of little edible art pieces. The blend of flavour was always a key... More

If you like Japanese cuisine visit this restaurant and ask for the full degustation menu at the bar.Extraordinary taste, quality and service. Price is on the high end but cheap for this quality of food. Don't miss it.

As we are big Japanese food lovers and tried many restaurants all over the world, including Japan, we headed to Koy Shunka very skeptical because there are no many authentic Japanese restaurants outside Japan... However , we had a wonderful surprise , everything is Japanese from the waiters setting to the quality of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
