Great food,especially sushi, be prepared that most of restaurant is outdoors

Had drinks at bar while waiting, could not drink Mojito as it was made extremely strong,etc, because of the very hot weather we preferred to have dinner in the limited indoor space close to the kitchen,which was not optimal but better than outside. The service was very good and the fish dishes were... read more

We were walk ins and asked if we could have drinks and wait at one of the open bar/patio tables (the patio was nearly empty). The hostess politely informed us that there was a wait list for the patio. This was the only drawback for us. It seemed that they really could have seated us there as it remained fairly... More

Great atmosphere, especially when they have live music. Sushi tastes good but rolls are not near tightly wrapped enough and fall apart when you try to squeeze them with chopsticks. Fried rice is good. Mussels were gritty with sand. Happy hour is great with great drink offerings and live music. You have a great view of the pool with the... More

This restaurant has it all. Great cocktail bar, beautiful food, good music and sensational views. Service was excellent. There were many different varieties of Japanese dishes as well as seafood. We had the lobster which was simply beautiful and I recommend the gorgeous scallops.

My wife and I visited on our honeymoon 15 years ago, and now again with our 3 kids. The sushi was as amazing as we remember, the wait staff was friendly and helpful, and the drinks were strong! (and good). Our children even ate the sushi and teriyaki beef, which was surprising. Beautiful views of the water and sunset. And... More
