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.

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.

We had a nice dinner here with a group that couldn't decide between pizza and sushi so we were able to have both. Both were good. The sushi menu is a bit loaded with huge crazy rolls at the expense of the simple stuff, e.g. tekkamaki. We probably could have gotten the more usual rolls but didn't ask. It was... More

Interesting choice of cuisine, however both the pizza and the sushi did not disappoint! Service was very good, and the meal was very delicious. Would recommend to anyone aiming for international cuisine in Costa Rica

This is a place I would never stop at but we are so glad we did. The sushi rolls were all outstanding , each had a distinct and delicious flavor. The ladies who work there were happy and friendly. Definitely recommend stopping by!
