Celebration lunch

Have a great lunch which was really well priced at a great location. I loved the rice and beans of Costa Rica but this sushi was a great change.

The food here was just OK, normal Japanese in a hotel. Nothing memorable about the food but thought it was a bit pricey for CR. The waitstaff was attentive and efficient.

This is a nice, traditional Japanese restaurant that is a calm oasis in the hurly burly of the Wyndam Herradura. The restaurant has a much larger and more diverse menu of Japanese food than typically found in a Japanese restaurant. You can have food sliced at the table and cooked samurai style or you can eat at individual tables. I've... More

We went to Sakura based on the reviews of being the best sushi in Costa Rica. The sushi was amazing and I agree that it was better than the typical sushi in Costa Rica. However the best part of the restaurant is its atmosphere, very relaxing, very nicely decorated and great service. Also a must try is the tempura ice... More

We lodged in Hilton Caliari and fancied a stroll to lunch. We landed at Sakura. Indoors was steamy specially for a group of 10 people the only table was on a corner behind a courtain and the temperature was too high. We had lunch together, the staff was serviceable and the food reasonable. I would go again but some of... More

This is a restaurant attached to the Wyndham hotel . The interiors are done like a Japanese style house and they have teppanyaki tables which are great for bigger groups. The tonkatsu meal was just ok but it was filling.

There is a very extensive menu but we settled for teppanyaki and a bento box, both which came with miso soup, salad and a lovely sorbet/ice cream at the end. Everything was very well prepared and extremely tasty. Drinks were reasonably priced and the atmosphere was nice too. Service was excellent and we felt it was good value for the... More

This is the place where I have had my last official meal in Costa Rica and it was as good as I had wished. They have a very ample menu and anything on it we ordered was very good, so no special recommendations. Well worth the visit. The wait staff is extremely good. Thanks.
