Having a young baby this restaurant's take away option was a fantastic find for an evening meal! Sushi was absolutely delicious,freshly prepared & flavours delicately balanced. Perfect accompanied by a glass of wine and beautiful sea view...The only problem being buying enough!

Very friendly and helpful staff. We ordered several dishes from sushi to paella. We liked it all but without getting blown away. Hospitality could not have been better though and we would go back.

I've been here a few times since they opened last year and consider it the best option to have lunch or dinner out in the area. Great menu, great service given by the owners themselves. I will definetly go back!
