“Good food!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Located in the centre of Barcelona. Nice decoration and atmosphere, and the service was good. The food was also nice, even though I'd say it was a bit too expensive.

“Poor value for money”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Had the menu for 2 and found the portions to be very small and the food to be of average quality. Given that the menu was 50% more expensive that a comparable menu in the Japonese restaurant a short walk away is much larger and of better quality I was disappointed. The decor of the restaurant is pleasant but not worth the difference in price.

“Good Japanese restauant”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

As my reference, all the restaurants of Grupo Tragaluz are very good. Price paid on each place of the group is deserved.

“very nice interior but food isnot worth he price”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

I have not been there in a couple of years and it had moved across the street now to the ground floor of the main tragaluz restaurant. The new interior design is really nice and creates a nice atmosphere. You can see the cooks which is a nice feature but unfortunately you also can smell everything the cooks burn and fry...

The food is very nice presented but does not impress. It is getting further away from real japanese food, the tempura for example was served instead of the real tempura sauce made of dashi etc. now as a foam of something fishy. (the head waiter said it is the usual soya sauce made to foam...) Also the sushi, which had to be preprepared and then refrigerated as it was a little try and cold...

To be honest for paying 92€ for a fast lunch for two without wine the quality would need to be better as it usually is in restaurants of the tragaluz group... there are better Japanese restaurants in barcelona
