I come back to Japan about twice a year. I was first introduced to this place in 2015. Needless to say I have come back ever since. The former chef has moved on and the new chef is picking right up where he left. Amazing...food crafted in a very small kitchen and of course great beer as well. Staff are very friendly and remember me the once a year I make it back. If you are in Kyoto this is a must! Down a small alley and very simply laid out..not a big place but quaint and it has become one of my favorites over the years.More

As some reviewers have already mentioned, a hidden treasure. Very friendly bar that specialises in craft beer with at least 6 guest beers. You can either sit at the tables or at the bar where you can watch your food being freshly prepared and cooked....Seafood is a speciality, but I had the winter vegetable soup which was delicious.. along with a couple of beers, this cost 2000 Yen. Nice ambience, casual and Western toilets. Staffed by a very friendly and polite team.More

Beer Komachi is a hidden treasure in Kyoto. First things first...this place is right near the Higashiyama station of the Kyoto subway, so it’s convenient to get to. The main attraction is craft beer - of which there is a solid selection. But the food...is also very satisfying. We had the sashimi special and it was so good we ordered it again. Also tried some tempura and pizza. Everything was comforting and delicious. This place is not gourmet. It is more of a western style bar and restaurant that serves some pretty food food. You will enjoy your meal here.More

Seven or eight interesting beers on tap, plus a few bottled beers, sake, plum wine etc. Food decent. Service quick and polite. Atmosphere nice and quiet - no annoying loud music or similar. Overall a warm and pleasant experience, and we came back here most...evenings for a pre- or post-dinner drink while we were staying nearby.More

It’s rare to find a place that serves good craft beer and great interesting food. Beer Komachi definitely fits the bill! The Hokkaido IPAs were delicious and the food is creative and yet yummy. Absolutely oishii!

We were VERY lucky this was located near the Airbnb house we rented. The rest of the streets close up and go to sleep, this place was still open. My husband stated it was the best tempura he'd had in his life! It was so...fresh and non-greasy. My kids were happy getting their "American eats", they had great pizza options, fantastic french fries. The Sushimi menu rotates nightly (we ate there 3 times) and the beer selection is great and varied. Wish we had one in California!More

Especially I liked the service and the changing menu there, the sashimi were excellent, the other dishes were also very good! They have also sth for vegetarians. The beer is not cheap but worth to try - I liked it a lot! The atmosphere in...the restaurant is relaxed and nice!More

I am a beer afficionado, and I investigated on beforehand which craft beer bars were most recommended in Kyoto, and this place came up. There is a Nice and authentic vibe in the place, with very basic wooden plank interior. Appearantly Trump was visiting Japan...and handed over a trophy to a sumo wrestler on this day and that was a huge deal that was covered on the TV, accomanied with cheers from some of the locals at the bar. Quite entertaining. However, beer selection is OK, I got a decent Saison that hadn’t been checked in on Untappd before so quite rare selection. But “only” 5 different on tap. The food was quite alright but mostly for snacks.More

Crafted beer bar. They serve beers and something to eat. There are different types of crafted beers from different Japan's places (Kyoto, Hiroshima...). Beers are a bit expensive

We tried 4 out of 7 draft beers and all were light & tasty. They have several choices of pub food so you won’t be hungry. If you want to try different types of japanese beer, have a snack with the drinks and communicate in...English, this is the place for you.More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
