Great Bar

Taught the bartender how to make an 'absolute texas', and he got it right almost immediately. 2nd time he strained the seeds out. Even better. Very congenial bar setting with friendly and timely service.

They have some unique rolls that no other place has, great taste, great quality and considering all that, the price is pretty OK. Other places are more expensive and by far not that good. Really nice ambiance und great service. 100% recommended if you want to eat amazing rolls!

It is one of the restaurants of the Intercontinental Hotel in San Jose de Costa Rica. Restaurant is nice and the ambience is ok too. Sushi was indeed excellent but found it a bit too pricy. C´mon guys, it's sushi. All in all a good place for dinner or lunch.

Best restaurant for sushi in San Jose by far! Be prepared to wait for a table and very tight accommodations. But worth the wait! If you're not a sushi lover they will bring you food from italian restaurant or steakhouse. Very accommodating staff and a busy busy place.
