A restaurant with a complicated name is most likely the result of the merger. L’Artisan Furansu Kitchen is the idea of Japanese Gohei and French Stephane, with an Ecuadorian and a Spaniard in the kitchen. And the result could not be better.

Located in the Barrio de Las Letras, the restaurant has two floors: the top, dominated by a bar where you can also have snacks, and downstairs, an old, dimly lit brick warehouse which is perfect for a romantic evening. You choose which environment convinces you more depending on who you’re going with.

The menu is contemporary and mestizo, but mainly Japanese and French recipes combined but not mixed. We recommend tempura sardines stuffed with umeboshi and basil; teriyaki poussin with vegetable skewer; duck breast with salsa and peach compote or the house sashimi house. And to drink, we propose a good French wine or an original mojito with sake.

Lunch or dinner is about 25 euros. They serve a lunch menu for 14 euros. We’d never thought about it before, but the Japan-France combination is great!
