Nice meal

We went because of the good reviews. It is really a good place to eat. The sushi is latino influenced so it is very very good and tasty. The waiter was very nice and friendly. The fresh local sashimi was the best. We had seconds. And the octopus was delicious. We did not have rolls so I cannot rate... read more

we were excited to try this restaurant based on the good reviews. Sadly we came away unimpressed. Might be due to the great sushi we enjoy at home in Vancouver? If you don't eat sushi often, it may turn out better for you but if you are a seasoned sushi lover, don't bother. Better sushi is found at Casa Las... More

Thanks for your opinion, it always makes us improve. Our sushi is a fusion between japanese and mexican food, with many fresh products from the island, that could make different the flavors that you are familiar with. Thanks again for your opinion! Best regards! More

Maybe the best restaurant on the island if you like sushi. Whereas the California rolls were just very good, we had another type of roll with a very interesting combination of flavors (tuna, white fish, mango, etc.) that made every bite an unforgettable experience.

The sashimi from local fish was nice, and the nigiri also, but we also got a bad makiroll with overcooked rice and a bad taste. Not the best cocktails and small glasses of wine. Maybe the ordinary staff was free for the evening? We got to wait a long time for the makiroll so we got a free beer. That's... More

The night you visited us was a busy night, and as our products are cooked and prepared right a way, sometimes it makes de service a little bit slow. What it surprised me is the flavour of the rice, as it is the... More

As sushi is my favourite food, I had to dine here at some point in the week. Down a sandy street it's like sushi hoilday and the staff inside were lovely. The sushi was very fresh and the rolls were perfect size, perfect taste. What a delightful place, good value too.

We stopped here our first night for a nice dinner right out on the sandy street --- good drinks and great sushi -- my wife also bought a nice hand made necklace from the bartender after complementing the server on her necklace
