"Spanish char-grilled cuisine" El Fogon meaning "the stove" in Spanish features chargrilled cuisine. Spanish style grilling is kept simple to allow for the natural flavours to come through. Simply grilled with salt, you can enjoy all the blessings of nature. The chargrilled ingredients are crisp on the outside and juicy in the middle, sealing in the natural flavour. Please enjoy a chargrilled meal, which is not so easily prepared at home. "Spanish cuisine using Japanese ingredients" Spanish Iberian pigs are famous for their rich black color and flavorful meat. We serve "Agu pork" from Okinawa, which is comparable to Iberian pigs in color and taste.

Lovely little spot

A nice treat in the center of Kyoto. Great if you're looking for a little variety from the local cuisine. Lovely little upstairs dining room.

A nice treat in the center of Kyoto. Great if you're looking for a little variety from the local cuisine. Lovely little upstairs dining room. Waitstaff that were incredibly friendly and attentive even by Japanese standards. Great sangria, nice Spanish cheeses and tapas, tender pork. Really enjoyed it.

Small tapas bar with very helpful, friendly staff! The bar selection is limited but good enough (Mahou Spanish Beer is pretty tasty). The grilled vegetable tapas were excellent with an almond, garlic, pepper, tomato "sauce". The other dishes were also tasty. Overall, the wonderful ambiance, staff, and food made for a great evening!

I have had lunch here and dinner. The staff had more time to chat during lunch and suggested a wonderful Spanish red wine by the glass. It's just east of city hall. I will be back.
