I loved this restaurant - the food seemed very fresh, delicious with an interesting menu. I did think it was a bit overpriced but all in all was a good experience

Menu had very limited choices but everything we ordered was well made. Servings could've been a bit more generous so you might have to order a bit more food than usual to satisfy bigger appetites.

Loved the place. Good was great, service was good and the atmosphere was good to. We had some tapas and enjoyed everything we tried. Only downfall was not being able to split the bill.

The kids shared a Japanese kaarage and even enjoyed the miso soup. The service was excellent and the seafood fresh. Can't ask for much more than that.
