This place is awesome. Food is great and we loved the vibe. They even prepared the fish my husband caught fishing that day for us. Everyone is super friendly. It will always be a stop when in Rincon.

The food was very fresh! It was also served quickly. The staff were very nice. This place is a must visit if you're in the Rincon area! My family including my parent, who don't eat sushi by the way, loved this spot.
