Somewhere within the nightclubby area for cocktails and dinner that Gothic district has become. A place that seats a mere few diners per evening. is worth a visit for the street alone. The spot is tiny. Few steps whisks you up to the first floor dining room where guests eat in a cosy room. The tuna nigiri at Kynoto Japanese... More

In the gothic district, the sushis bar has a traditionnal deco: you eat almost like in Japan. Not usual in Europe. Fishes are fresh and tasty, rice very well cooked. Miso soup is excellent with sesam. Desserts also not common in the region. Great place for sushis fans!!

Kynoto is a nice sushi place, entirely run by Spanish. Had a miso soup and some dumplings as starter and mixed sushi platter + a roll as main and is was very nice. Waiters were friendly and created a good atmosphere. Payed 36€pP which was totally fair. If you look for a nice sushi in El Gotico, I definitely recommend... More

I liked the food a lot, and the atmosphere was quiet, calm, perfect if you want to have nice japanese food in a non all-you-can-eat or gyratory buffet.

Kynoto sushi bar- restaurant is a great japanese restaurant in a tiny local in the oldest neighborhood in Barcelona. There you will find quality fresh fish out of question and detailed and deeply information if you ask to the staff. I have to confess that others more acclaimed restaurants, and more expensive, do not take care of traditional details on... More

13-15€ for 1 roll! Paid more than 40€ for a soup, 2 rolls and 2 drinks. Too much for me... Sushi was very good thought

If it wasn't t for the 30% discount we got through "the fork" I would say the place is not worth it. T'he server which looked like the owner was a very nice guy. Nothing else to add.

OMG, I have no idea what people are writing about here, but this sushi is absolutely terrible here. Look, I'm Japanese, and I've had sushi around the world and I understand that the sushi in Europe, and particularly in Barcelona is not good, but this is particularly bad. The rice was WAY too wet, the neta (i.e. the fish on... More
