4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The menu is excellent in choice. Portions a bit on the small side for the price but the execution of the dishes are great, though not authentic japanese. Deserts are stunning as well, and friendly staff.

The food in this restaurant is awesome. Not only the sushi id excellent, but also the other japanese specialties. We choosed the 4-courses menu (mix of 36 & 48 euro menu). I really recommend this choice!

I tried their lunch menu this time and it was definately worth the money! Mixed leaves seaweed Salad, Tempura Prawn Uramaki Sushi, Panko Fried Chicken and Brownie for dessert. 16€ drink included, great value.

The best sushi I've ever tasted. Edamame bode beans to start. Could have been spicier but very tasty all the same. Washed it down with a perfectly chilled Sauvignon blanc rose followed by issei sashimi and Nigiri and finally carnaval uramaki. The food was a mixture of sweet, salty, texture and wasabi. A cacophony of fantastic flavours that left you... More

Perfect sushi, very friendly staff! Nice neighbourhood. The first ikibana restaurant in town, so we think the food is just a little bit more better than the others

We had a nice night at Ikibana. The venue is modern with a relaxed atmosphere and impressive menu. We could not chose, so we tried one of the tasting menus which we were very happy with. I will especially recommend the sushi and the japanese burger. The staff was sweet, but the service a little slow.

This was my lucky find. I actually wanted to have my dinner at la Paradeta. But unfortunately Paradeta, due to its popular review on tripadvisor, has attracted unbelievable line of patrons. I was not in the mood to wait outside for an hour on my vacation. I went around the corner and saw this beautiful Brazilian/Japanese fusion restaurant and had... More

Food is absolutely stunning, I loved it. Admittedly though, it's quite pricey. Great service and politeness by the waitresses, although I must admit (I might exaggerate) that a hair was found in my glass of water after I poured some. As a business, I would have replaced the whole bottle of water (just initiated), instead they "just" apologized and changed... More

I was craving asian cuisine, so i searched for this place using Yelp. I had the salmon ceviche, Shiki sarada, and Crispy Gunkan. All of it was exceptional! My husband had the shrimp tempura and the gyoza and he thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived just at midnight, which is when the kitchen closed, but they stayed open for us. I... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
