If you are looking for high quality Japanese food and want to avoid fancy pretentious restaurants, go to Shunka. They serve amazing sweet shrimp sashimi! If you want to impress and don't mind spending, then try Koy Shunka's menú degustación, but you may need to book in advance for that.

Japanese restaurants serving sushi attract an expectation of high standards. I'm no different. The food was absolutely top standard, but personally I'm not fond of sake. This little detail is enough this time to knock a point off the total evaluation score. You'll enjoy the visit, and will be served top notch Japanese dishes. Enjoy!

Seriously, the sushi here is absolutely out of this world. And the value is pretty good considering the quality of the fish. Make sure you make reservations as it fills up pretty quick. Easily the best sushi outside of Japan I've ever had and I've tried some of the best in the northeast.

As it should be for a Japanese restaurant, at Shunka they put a lot of care into the product. Oysters are great both, in caliber and flavour. The Chūtoro tuna is simply amazing. More into local products the Palamos prawns are top, as well as the salmonetes. The wine menu contains some good references. We ate all along with a... More
