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

The decor was really nice, great breeze and the staff was very nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends and I would return to... 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.

We had a great meal, with very good service. The waiter chose the items and the presentation and quality was excellent as was the portion size. Service was fast and efficient but we were not rushed. Prices are a little on the high side but still worth a stop for very good sushi.

Great dining experience. Chef was hospitable and the food was amazing. Went with a group and the service was a bit slow but the taste made up for the wait!
