The menu has an interesting Japanese / Spanish mix. We had tempura and a seafood salad to start. The seafood salad was divine, with a wonderful lime dressing.

We visited the restaurant based on the reviews and it was just a short walk from our hotel. Hard to find down a side alley but full and popular with the locals.
