Nothing special. The fish was fresh but didn't knock my socks off. I don't know why some say it was "authentic japanese", hardly. I would avoid anything that said "crunchy", which apparently means a roll surrounded by an inch worth panko.

One of our favorite, if not our favorite restaurants in Jaco. Rudy and his staff are great, sushi is outstanding. Seaweed, cuke and tuna salad a must.

The owner, Rudy, has worked hard to establish an authentic sushi restaurant. He started catering private parties, and now has the freshest and reasonable priced sushi restaurants in Costa Rica. He has made me a regular customer by serving consistently excellent food.

We ate dinner here on a holiday weekend We lucked out and did not have to wait for a table. Service was quick and super friendly. We ordered three rolls and two miso soups to split. Food was really great. Miso soup was the best I have ever had, loved the noodles I lieu of the normal tofu. This place... More

New addition to downtown Jaco. Right on the main road so people watching and shopping were quite easy. Food was good and they have a bar. Full menu with sushi and other Japanese delights.

We got a seat after the happy hour (meaning cheaper sushi and stuff), because during happy hour it was just too busy. However, when we were seated we enjoyed amazing food and got good service. Afterwards we were actually chased by one of the waiters, since I left my newly bought stuff behind. Very classy!

We were searching for "I Love Sushi," but it was currently closed. Went here instead and enjoyed it so much, ate there two nights in a row. Excellent service and quality.

Sushi requires a few things -- rice, fresh ingredients, and someone who knows how to roll it. Arigato has it all, and a good price. It's nothing fancy or over-the-top good but it's worth a try.
