We stopped here for lunch and ordered the fish trio roll and a few smoothies. The smoothies were very nice. Ingredients were fresh as opposed to frozen, and the ice to juice consistency was perfect.

Food taste great, and is presented beautifully. The sushi is amazing and better than Papagayo's. We discovered it closer to the end of our trip which was a shame, bc we could eat here everyday! The iced tea and lemonade were also delicious.

Interesting choice of cuisine, however both the pizza and the sushi did not disappoint! Service was very good, and the meal was very delicious. Would recommend to anyone aiming for international cuisine in Costa Rica

This is a place I would never stop at but we are so glad we did. The sushi rolls were all outstanding , each had a distinct and delicious flavor. The ladies who work there were happy and friendly. Definitely recommend stopping by!
