“Excellent fusion japanese cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

honestly one of the best meal I've ever had in a japanese restaurant. I've started with a spicy tuna tartare and my main was a Siberian Black Cod in sesame oil and lentils. Stunning.
Good selection of champagnes. Service is very good. The location is great as well, a fake wooden boat (it is not as cheesy as it seems, trust me).
Plus, Carmel is beautiful, after the meal we walked in the dark (in Carmel there are no city lights) with flashlights.

“yes all the reviews are correct, a top notch restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Along with my teenage kids, we had dinner at the Flying Fish based on the Trip advisor recommendations. It was simply awesome. Tempura, dungeness crab, salmon combined with well priced wines made for an excellent evening and I would certainly visit again.

“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visited Carmel with friends last weekend and this was our favorite meal of the trip! Loved the wooden interior... food and service... top notch! Would visit again, even with many other options for dining in the area.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is tiny. Its food is wonderful. I tried the black cod, something you usually can't find on the East Coast. I explained my dietary restrictions to the owner who was more than forthcoming. The service was both excellent and informal.
This was a really fine California seafood restaurant, with Asian overtones. You will not be disappointed
