Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

Open kitchen. Long, shared wooden tables. Innovation: ceviches, sushi and natural charcoal Japanese barbecue bar to prepare kusiyaki.

Dynamic and high quality oriental food, at reasonable prices.

Varied menu, where the kushiyaki (skewer grilled), the extremely light sushi and sashimi triumph
