We found the restaurant via trip advisor. It's next to the bus station of the ritz shopping center. After a warm welcome from a very friendly staff we ordered some sushi and it was more than we expected - it was really delicious. They also have a nice interior concept in the small and narrow house. Definitely a good address.

The chef was SO creative and really great with his flavours and presentation skills. I am vegetarian so sushi can often be quite repetitive however each sushi piece was different, some with crunchy toppings and different sauces. My friends who eat fish said it was one of their favourite places too. Location is on the main road in funchal. Has... More

Hadn't been for a while but ate there Friday night and it was excellent. Very inventive. The concept has never changed , a set menu of small courses but every one seemed better. I don't know why they have 3 menus as it seems everyone has menu 2. 25 euro each for delicious miso soup then a sliced cucumber dish... More

Had this resturant booked since June, arrived bang on 8.30pm when the sign on the door said they were open, door locked. Rang them no response. Had a really good meal last year, this year, was really looking forward to and left hanging! Admittedly we had a few missed calls today which were missed, however they were private numbers so...

One of the best sushi restaurant's I've been to - I would certainly recommend! Exciting dishes that are a little different to the usual sushi you find in most resultants.

We visited and ate at this little Sushi restaurant on Friday the 1st of July located near the sea front of Funchal. I cant say I was dressed for the part as we had spent all day sailing (outdoor clothing and sandals). Compared to our fellow diners who were smartly dressed for the occasion. However the food is what its... More
