Delicious and reasonably priced

We had dinner here a few nights ago. The food was fresh and delicious. We had miso soup, two plates of rolls and a sashimi, beer and saki majito. All delicious. The service got a little slow when the little restaurant got a little busier but the server was very friendly.

Arrived on an early evening flight to San Jose. Instead of venturing out of the hotel, I decided to try Nau at the suggestion of the front desk. I ordered miso soup and the spider roll. Although I was not really that hungry, I wound up devouring the whole meal. The miso soup had favor and zest. The spider roll... More

Can't talk about the price, but the food was simply delicious! You must make sure you try it, and try out the Rock&Roll sushi! The only thing I didn't like about it was their schedule. It's very, very limited. It would be great if they kept it open on a continual schedule.

This is a no miss in the hotel if you like sushi. The menu is big and the are interesting flavors. One of the best sushis in Latam i have ever tried. My recomendation is to go in a group, order several rolls and share.

We have visited Nau as a family for lunch, and as pretty much all the places in Intercontinental, everything was spot on. Yered attended very well, and rolls were very tasty. Top notch.

Located in the Intercontinental Hotel in Escazu, offers some of the best sushi in the country. It is expensive and service can be a bit slow but definitively worth a visit if you feel like some good fresh sushi!

Of course we are working constantly to improve food and service quality, focusing mainly on overall excellence. Since all Sushi is made on the spot, it might take a little while.

I love japanese food and this is the best option for your buck in San José, mainly if you have the Intercontinental card that give up to 50% discount. Food is always good and many times superb. The waiters and the manager are always smiling and paying attention to you.
