I recommend this place both for the food, the service and the atmosphere. The sushi is different than regular sushi, but it is absolutely delicious. So is the fried rice. Make sure to top the meal with some heavenly tempura ice cream! This is also a place where you can enjoy a couple of drinks while listening to reggae music... More

I recommend the stir fry. Absolutely Devine. Full of flavour and cooked to a perfect crunch. Great service. Smiles all round.

We ate sushi there and it wasn't what you would expect for sushi, it is the mexican version of it, i would recommend you go at happy hour time where you 2x1 then it is good value for money.

Delicious, fresh, beautifully presented sushi. We arrived before 7pm and were offered a 2 for 1 deal. Relaxed ambience, good friendly service and great prices. Would highly recommend!

This place has reliable sushi, especially for Mexico. We've eaten here a couple of times, and it's always a nice atmosphere.

Nice friendly people, that's the only nice thing I can say. The Miso soup was hot water, a few mushrooms and some undercooked rice noodles. The soy sauce is watered down. The salmon and other sushi was edible, but was very flavorless. The rolls we got were poorly wrapped and so fell apart upon attempting to eat. The host was... More

We stopped for a light snack and ordered fish ceviche and fish tacos. Both dishes were outstanding and large portions! Our light snack became dinner with no regrets! Yum!!!

This place looks really classy and has a wide menu, but the food wasnt living up to the expectation. We had the fish tacos and some sushi, all of whom were not very good. The sushi was actually pretty bad, and way over priced. I recommend simply having drinks, when there is live music at the plaza.

Only had drinks here so can't comment on the food but I will say the staff was charming and the location is delightful - right on the square for good people watching. Nice place!
