In a high end of the private hospital commercial area, this restaurant, is not only pricey, but well worth the effort getting there and also the price. Excellent sushi.

Nice place, good price. You should definitely go! We were a relatively big group (15 pax) and got a good table, great beverages and the food didn't take long to get to the table. Good place for business activities and also if you want to have a nice dinner on a regular day.

Excellent restaurant, well located and good service, good option if you want to share appetizer instead of entries, I went with a colleague and ordered five plates, sushi, carpaccio, salad, sashimi, beef.. Their option of artesian beer is limited but good! Great place to have a good conversation, good environment, trendy place!

Enjoyed dinner at Saga for my first time. the waiter was great, helped direct me to food I could eat with my food allergy, and everything tasted great! Was very enjoyable and definitely will go back. A great place to try for fish, sushi or international cuisine.

Just a few words: excellent in everything!!! Besides the food, which is wonderful, I like the quickness of their service. You have your order in the table no later than 10 minutes after the waitress went to ask you what do you want.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the creative entrées, salads, main courses and sandwich options on the menu. I had Snook crusted with Macedonia nuts and it was wonderful. My wife had a three fish (Snook, tuna and salmon) dinner. The vegetables were very good and prepared perfectly. It was quiet enough in the back room for a hard of... More

This place is nice and trendy and has many options for food selections. I had the Spicy Tuna roll that I highly reccommend. Very tasty. Nice place for conversation or business relations. Set in a trendy part of town.

Very busy in the night. Coming after 8.00 pm we had to wait 15 min to get the table. Interesting menu, although not all was faultless. Very attractive list of wines and professional waiter. The place for a dinner with friends, as the décor is unique and venue is very cosy.

Saga is one of the rare restaurants one can have a conversation with others at your table. For some reason the ambient sound is not present. The decor is not spectacular but the variety of food offered is very good. Try the desert menu for a real treat ! The owner Simon M and his creative wife are client focused... More

I stopped at the Saga bakery with a friend who swore it was the best bakery she's been to ever - and she's from Paris! While speaking in French with her, a man came behind the counter and began to speak with us in French. He's the owner and explained that his wife studied pastry-making in Paris and Boston. He...
