I went with a couple of girlfriends for lunch. I was not expecting much. The restaurants in this area have been disappointing on the whole. This one was good, very good. I had chicken crepes. The sauce was very tasty, with a hint of sherry. The crepes were light an delicate. The portion was large enough that I couldn't quite... More

We were in CR 4 years ago and made sure to not miss this restaurant on this visit. We were a large group and the consensus to visit this restaurant 3 times in 3 weeks was easy. Large menu, fast service and large portion. The coconut shrimp feeds two people! Don't miss the restaurant when you visit the area!

The variety on the 3 different menus (gourmet, sushi and general) is perfect for a larger group with varying tastes and satisfied several different palates in our group of six, from children to grandparents. The quality of the food and presentation was superb for every dish ordered. I don't think you can go wrong no matter what you choose. Service... More

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. However, the sushi we got was over mayonnaised and the fish did not taste fresh. The fish to rice ratio leaned toward the rice side.... More

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.
