If you like japanese food and special ingredients you need to try Koy Shunka. Quite hidden in a smaller street in Barcelona, you'll find a very modern restaurant with excellent service and food. Their sushi is the best and freshest you might find in the city.

Very calm interior. Kitchen is the icon of the restaurant. The food is top quality and presented very creatively. Not stroller friendly. We went lunch time but would be better as an evening dinning experience. Never the less would recommend this to anyone visiting the gothic sector of Barcelona.

Quite hidden in a small street in the city center you can find one of the best Japanese restaurants of Europe. We were there just after opening hour and the 2nd table with people in the dining section. This resulted in too much attention of the waiting staff during the first hour. Well intended but felt like a bit too... More

It was a truly unique experience. Up scale japanese restaurant, refined and minimalistic. The high prices where totally justified. Increidible quality and presentation. I tasted the kobe beef for the first time, it was out of this world. Highly recomended for special occasions or whenever you can go. If you appreciate real japanese food, you won't be disapointed.

You have to make a reservation in advance to get the table. We made it for dinner. We order gastronomy menu. The food was good, but it's a bit too much for gastronomy menu.

Best Japanese restaurant in Barcelona located in the old town. It can be a little bit pricey but the quality and the presentation is amazing. Very fresh and tasty sushi and surprising dishes. If you don't know what to order I recommend the tasting menu, delicious! Highly recommended!

I have a long experience of Japos restaurant from London and I am afraid this is not a place for Japanese, is simply an high scale good quality restaurant with very expensive price (same prices of Zuma London) for people of Barcelona with money but not experience in Japonese Rest.
