The magic of Wasabi!

Wasabi is a magical place - for the food, the atmosphere, the decoration, and the service. One of my favorite restaurants for the overall experience.

Due to all very good reviews, my expectations were maybe too grand, as I was bit disappointed to the experience. Sushi, maki, sashimi were of good quality, but variety was quite typical and lacked the "wow" effect. Service was slow and nothing extra - no introduction to what was on our plates or ways to enjoy them. I would also... More

My son organised an outing to this Japanese restaurant. He phoned ahead to ask if they could cater for a vegetarian. They put together for me a really succulent menu with things I'd never tasted before. I really appreciated that they explained to me that the soup had some fish in it so not on my menu, as I would...

I always have dilemma going to a nice Japanese restaurant. I love sashimi, sushi, grilled chicken skewers; tempura and much more and I want to try them all when I visit a nice/highly recommended Japanese restaurant. This restaurant offered all these in one bento!! This is one of the best bento I have had. I was worried that I will... More

After 1 1/2 weeks we needed a change and found this on trip advisor. The sushi is fresh and the chef did demonstrate how to eat sushi as promised in the reviews I had read. What was not clear is that the restaurant is well off the beaten path, at least from our hotel in vieux ville. An 18 euro... More

We had the 55 EU/person tasting menu and it was amazingly great - a great fine-dining experience (wine not included). Great atmosphere, great service and beautiful setting.

Very fresh sashimi, sushi and salad. The service was efficient and friendly and the host even took time with you to show you which order the sushi should be eaten and with what sauces, which I thought was a nice touch. My husband had the bento box and I had the Ebi sushi combo, plus dessert each and a sparkling... More

Nice food - recommended. We had the bento box - was very fresh and well organized. If you like sashimi this is a good place to try.

The fish was fresh, the salads tasty and the decor quirky. I loved their miso soup. The only thing that spoiled this restaurant for us was the slow service.
