Dining

Park Hyatt Kyoto offers unique and diverse culinary experiences in the heart of Higashiyama Hills from both East and West, with a focus on local, seasonal ingredients of the highest quality. Our guests may enjoy breathtaking views of the famous Yasaka Pagoda from our Signature Restaurant and Bar during day or night, or savor authentic, traditional Japanese kaiseki cuisine in the family-run Kyoyamato, taking in sunset at one of its historic teahouses.


YASAKA - Signature Restaurant

An unconventional approach to classic Japanese teppanyaki. 

Rather than bringing guests into the kitchen, Yasaka brings the kitchen into the restaurant. Here, skilled chefs showcase various cooking techniques and preparation methods –– all featured on the live cooking stage that is the Japanese “teppan,” or “steel plate.” Set to the breathtaking views of Kyoto’s famous Yasaka Pagoda, Yasaka’s finest, local ingredients and original recipes are curated by classically-trained, award-winning Chef de Cuisine Kampei Hisaoka. Dining at Yasaka is an unpredictable and unexpected journey, with personalization center stage.

KYOYAMATO - Kyoto’s famed Japanese kaiseki restaurant
The stone steps of the old garden lead to Kyoyamato, a traditional ryotei and culinary institution serving authentic, seasonally-inspired kaiseki cuisine that dates back to 1877, during Japan's Meiji Era. Kyoyamato, a family-run business which has persisted for six generations, consists of several historic buildings including "Soyotei," a storied teahouse from the Edo Era, a private room where feudal warlords would secretly meet.
