Going to the only Michelin starred Japanese restaurant in a city with and number of dining choices, I expected to wowed. Was a let down. I tried the larger tasting menu with the Wagyu beef. The sushi and sashimi were very goof and so was the amuse bouche but the beef and the shellfish courses were underwhelming including the 'Estrella'... More

Koyshunka is far more than a Japanese gastronomic experience. It's the 5th senses + unami. Fantastic.

I went with my girlfriend at the end of our holiday to Barcelona. The tasting menu was great! The courses were all really different. My personal favourite was the cold noodle water feature as one of the courses for sheer dramatics, however, taste wise the Wagu beef dish was brilliant. As a restaurant it is a great experience. I would... More

Koy Shunka is the only Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant in Barcelona. Pricey it certainly is, but well worth every penny. We ordered the most comprehensive tasting menu, and it was an endless parade of Japanese delights. With produce this quality you do have to stretch your wallet, but you will not be disappointed. Forget about your local sushi bar, this is... More

Very busy at lunchtime, buzzing little place. Waiters have very poor command of English for those who don't know any Spanish/Catalan. Sushi was nice, but very small portion for the price. Satisfactory overall but best to have sushi in countries where it's affordable...

Had a 13 course menu at this place. Many pretty cool and creative dishes was served. The miso soup was great and the tepanyaki wagyu beef was one of the best I have ever tried

First thing to know about this restaurant is that you'd better book a table in advance and request to be just in front of the bar ;) The seats are all around the kitchen so that you'll see the cooks preparing everything. The waiters are really nice and smiling, service is really upper class. Food is pricey but if you're... More
