“Perfect. You MUST go. Sorry for yelling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We just discovered this place and wish we had earlier. Everything was incredible. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. The food was some of, if not the best sushi (but there is a varied, vast menu if you are not a sushi fan - and we oredered two items from it - wicked good) we have had. We enjoy Blowfish in Toronto and Nobu in NYC. I highly recommend eating here. The owner, Lisa, was a light to hat with, as were all of the wait staff. It should be a must on the island for anyone who likes exceptional food, location and service.

“Great sushi selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner twice in February, once was Valentines Day - good food, wide selection, great tables, if you can get them, directly on the rail to the beach. Try a selection of the sushi, maki rolls etc- the "spider pig" was especially tasty!

“Very Nice but pricey for you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had a nice time here - mains was extremely tasty (but not out of this world tasty - just very nice) - we had a nice bottle of wine at BBD $75 and the total bill came to $300 (£100) which we thought was pretty expensive for what we had (We had the beef and duck two ways and the banana desert which was not as great as it sounds). what annoyed us was they put tax on at the end including tax on a service charge of 10% (bit sneaky - we didnt come across this anywhere else). If you want "proper service" then visit the deck at accra or champers. The service here was friendly but not special

“Banana Abuse...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Dinner was delicious with a FANTASTIC new menu that offers a wide range of amazing delights, including bento boxes. The fusion of flavours is a good idea, but some flavours need help in coming together better. The Trio of Banana dessert was a big disappointment after such a wonderful experience with the new 'Hemingway' seared tuna and mushroom/zucchini roll. Since when does banana and wasabi paste go together in what was horribly described as a crème brulée?! Another fusion of banana and mint in filo pastry tasted awkward and forced. How unfortunate...it was enough to knock this rating down to average. The servers need a little more experience describing the menu options. Do it justice!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Pretty much the finest meal I have ever had, anywhere. Fresh, nice presentation. Reasonable portions. Good location on the beach boardwalk.. Friendly staff.
