Hibachi style Japanese and sushi restaurant. Steaks, shrimp, chicken and sushi were all delicious and fresh. Service was very good. Water and boat views on the water at the the end of a peninsula. A little pricey but food was good for the price.

Food is very good. Service is very slow. More protection from mosquitoes and no seeums needed on the terrace. A very nice restaurant overall.

We really liked the seafood here. I had the snapper and it was really delicious -- We got to sit out on the deck -- cool looking out over the expensive yachts and marina. They also have a hibachi grill and they do take reservations....More

Service was painfully slow, it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and close to an hour to get our sushi.

Not to my knowledge. It wasn't "season" when I went, so maybe just calling ahead of time to see.

Do you have any American food on the Menu for people who can't have shell fish?

It is an Asian cuisine, but there are many choices that are not seafood. There is also a children's menu with chicken, etc.
