Updated on Apr 11, 2024 | World of Mouth team

Kyoto has no shortage of Michelin starred restaurants. In fact, there's about a hundred of them, which might seem like an overwhelming amount to navigate through. To help you out, we highlight the best Michelin star restaurants in Kyoto, based on personal recommendations from World of Mouth experts like Kyoko Nakayama and Tom Jenkins.

To experience a real Kyoto institution, visit the 450-year-old Hyotei, run by the 15th generation of the family. Or if you're looking for something newer, check out Kiyama where chef Yoshiro received his Michelin star the same year the restaurant opened. Find these and many more great Kyoto restaurants below.
