My friend saw their lunch menu posted outdoors, and suggested we could get some fish and chips. We were there for dinner so we only go their dinner menu and nothing like fish and chips were there.

This is one of those special restaurants that makes food to remember. The sushi pizza was amazing and the main courses were perfectly cooked. The service was wonderful.

The restaurant is pricey but not exorbitant. We ordered the sushi 4-4-2 and a cod with herb. The sushi pizzas were great and other sushis were a blend of different tastes in the mouth. The cod is tasty with the super soft garlic and nice salad.

I went there by chance, and it was good luck! The decoration is simple but warm. I took the seafood plate and it was truly delicious. Service was very kind. It's a little bit expensive, but it's worth the bill if you expect a nice and good evening at the restaurant.

Good arctic char sushi. I had to wait15 min on a comfortable sofa since I didn't order before hand. It was quite cheap. The waiters were very nice.

Loved it, highly recommended. Very cool restaurant, with great food. I had the Minki Whale, was awesome. Service was fine, but a bit slow. Very good place to stop for a meal.
