“Very disappointing all-up. Avoid this restaurant”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Visited restaurant on 22 dec 2013. Wrong almost from start, unpleasant pungent smell on walking into restaurant. Was seated in shabby area (behind small reception) stained seating, dirty air conditioning grill above our table, general furnishing disrepair, gloomy lighting. Without exception food was terrible disappointment with even basics (seasoning, flavours, presentation) wrong. 'Highly commended' tapas (tuna, sushi, scallops) all unmemorable and missable. Crab stuffed snapper entree was a disaster (grey fish, completely tasteless, accompanying broth unpleasant). Only salvaging element was service, which was attentive and ok but couldn't make up for the massive fail from a food perspective. How this restaurant fares so well on various recommendation sites including tripadvisor is a total mystery. Give it a miss its awful all-up

“Perfect Service & Expansive Wine List”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

If you are looking for a place that has a full bar, excellent service, and enjoy wine, this is your place. I am not typically a fan of Japanese fusion type of food so my rating is solely based on all of the above. Had a birthday party here for 10 people and enjoyed my experience overall.

“Food and service was excellent”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was a first time visit for our party of 6 and everyone thought the food and service was great. The atmosphere could be better, but it isn't really all that important if your meal is good. The waiter (Cory) knew his wines and made an excellent recommendation. Parking was convenient and validated which was an added bonus for the restaurant. We'll definitely eat here again.

“Very good food, service and wine list - would definitely go back.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Went there with a group of 6 for a business dinner. The service was efficient but not rushed. The server was friendly and knew his wines. The food ranged from pretty good to amazing. We only ordered tapas and shared everything, and everyone at the table agreed that the food was great. The location and setting are no big deal, but I will definitely go back.

“The Wine!!!! The Food!!!!! The Service!!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I brought my husband to Hiroshi for his birthday to surprise him because this wonderful restaurant is the only place on the island where you can get David Arthur wine (specifically Elevation 1147 and the '06 Cabernet).

We had the special Ahi appetizer which melted onto the palate and was absolutely perfect; my husband's steak was divine and my duck was a fantastic and sensual experience. :)

Mr. Furuya, the Master Somellier is an excellent resource that makes this place an absolute adventure in wine tasting and understanding. Our server, Cory (Corey?) was a total gem and made us feel extra special.

I can't wait until the next special occasion arises and I'm going to get to their happy hour as often as possible!!!!
