“You'd never guess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This place is a couple hundred meters from my favorite surf camp. Extremely fresh sushi, and a great laid back environment. Great owners.

“Nobu quality without the price tag!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were craving sushi and decided to go on a recommendation from a visitor at our hotel in Mal Pais. Our private driver took us all the way and they were closed ... (Wed-Sun) we ended up going the next night and I just have to say it was well worth the wait - so fresh, and absolutely delicious, creative rolls - the Koji was my favorite. I love Nobu for the quality of the fish, this place is just as amazing and without the pretentious vibe.
Be sure to make a reservation, they get super busy.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had dinner here on my 2nd last night and it was incredible. The koji rolls and spicy tuna are a MUST! I will be back here again no doubt, when I return to Santa Teresa in June.

“Great vibe, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Very chill spot. My husband enjoyed the sushi. The fresh green salad and grilled vegetables were perfect for me.

The wait staff is charming and well-informed.

It was pretty magical sitting in the candlelit garden beneath the stars.

Definitely worth a visit, particularly if your'e staying at Villas Hermosas, which is about a four-minute walk down the road.
