From Michelin-starred Tempura Mizuki to the Italian cuisine of La Locanda, dining at The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto both delights and surprises. The hotel offers four restaurants, sweet indulgences at its Pierre Hermé Paris Boutique and special experiences like wine tastings and private dining.

Chef’s Table by Katsuhito Inoue

Experience Chef’s Table by Katsuhito Inoue, where chef Inoue takes diners on a journey through Japan’s 72 micro-seasons. What’s presented on the plate is a reflection of his culinary skill, the relationships he’s built with local purveyors and his dedication to sustainable cooking. A seat at Inoue’s table is more than an opportunity to eat well; it’s an opportunity to truly understand the evolution from farm to table.


Four distinct experiences within one space, this Japanese restaurant offers kaiseki, sushi, tempura and teppanyaki cuisines. Private dining is also available.
