And now for something completely different

Where to start? Decor is not much but tables are nicely spaced, very comfortable chairs and very friendly, efficient staff. The 30 euro menu is a good deal, short, but with interesting choices, plus daily specials. An additional supplement on a couple of things is not appreciated, however. Both... read more

We go there often and we're never disappointed. Everything is fresh and inventions spring eternal. Vegetables are crispy and crunchy. This is not a sushi restaurant but when they do offer sushi, it's not the sushi you eat everywhere else. Last time remade the mistake of going there before our movie and the served us fast but it would have... More

Just opposite where we were staying for a few days, but we left it until our last evening, as not sure what to expect and had other restaurants recommended to us. This was possibly the best! Interesting, tasty, satisfying menu. Especially enjoyed the trio of starters as a taster of what to follow. Main courses were lovely. We chose chicken... More

Were lucky to have the last table available (after calling them). Friendly staff, delicious Japanese and French food. They have a €30 three course menu with plenty of choice. Recommend the 'ginger cocktail'.

France Japanese fusion works - Ma Yucca is evidence of that. The people are really nice and friendly, the atmosphere low key and laid back ... interesting food which is really good. We had several starter items, some mains and the plat du jour - all well prepared and tasty! The bill was not scary either .... some restaurants are... More

Went here on 18/09/15 to have dinner. We took the evening menu which consists of an entrée, a main course and a dessert. As first course I had the carpaccio de daurde (fish), as main the maigret de canard (duck) with teriyaki sauce (which was delicious) and a dessert. It's as stated not entirely Japanse cuisine, but it has French... More

Overall the food was good, quite innovative and very fresh. The service though not bad could do with a bit of fine tuning, it is not bad but the small things matter. As a solo diner I was not happy to be put in the worst table, especially as I had made a reservation and the. Promptly saw two other... More

Great little Japanese restaurant. Had the salmon sushi consisting of maki, nigiri and some "grilled" salmon. It was so good! Great service, beautiful restaurant, clean and fresh. If you're looking for a cozy dinner with great food, this is the place!

It's well worth it's trips-advisor rating. At main course we took the salmon sushi variation and the beef. We where both amazed at how the meat melted in our mouths and the composition of the dishes. Super neat service and the restaurant was cosy and clean.
