Service was pretty good, but food was just so so for Japanese food. I ordered the tempura and it was a heavy egg batter not light and crisp like I prefer.

We had two great meals here and were really delighted both times with the quality of the food! The restaurant wasn't very crowded so our service was prompt and the "hibachi" chef was masterful. Given US prices, I felt the meal was reasonable in cost.

I enjoyed "the boat" the prepare with different types of sushi, shashimi, etc. The wine options are very limited and sometimes they do not have the best ones. The restaurant is a bit pricey.

Never have been disappointed with their food. If you have more than 2 guests order a boat with sushi. Just commenting because there is not much choice here and they always have been good.

My husband and I stayed at the Wyndham (what a disappointment) and chose Sakura because it is in walking distance to the hotel (it's practically connected). The service was excellent and the sushi was fresh and presented beautifully. The meal wasn't cheap, but it was a wonderful experience.

Very important to mention that Costa Rica, for me, do NOT mean fusion food or creative food, so, it´s a very honest Japonese restaurant. Nothing in special in the menu, but good quality sushi and sashimi. Should invest on some creative or high fusion Japonese menu.

The media shows it as a very good restaurant. But my experience was mixed: the salmon sashimi was a tiny portion for the price, and did not taste OK. The wasabi was weak (probably doused with starch). The attendants were all very nice, though. But thre I shall never return! The salmon sashimi I ate came with a cheap plastic... More

Aside from what is becoming a dated decor, the food and tepanyaki was exquisite, and the atmosphere was very nice. Try it!
