“Don't bother... bring back Schilo”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

We went because the previous tenant, Schilo, was fantastic. Unfortunately Kabuki doesn't come close to filling those big shoes.

We went for the EUR107 per head menu (there's also one cheaper and one more expensive). With a reasonably cheap bottle of wine, the total bill came to EUR300 for the two of us. For that money I'd expect (a) you'd have a memorable experience, with creative food and outstanding service and (b) you'd be full. Unfortunately this met neither criterion, we left feeling hungry and ripped off. As an example, a small dollop of uninteresting sorbet was all that was offered for desert. The quality is fine, but no better than you'd expect in any good japanese restaurant. The setting doesn't work, serving trendy asian food in a Spanish hacienda. It's also a shame that they've closed the outside terrace.

To be fair, when we gave the hostess the feedback she did offer to bring more food, did bring another dessert that was nice and probably would have brought more food if we had pushed her, but we just wanted to get out.

“For lovers of Japanese cuisine.. done to perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

If you are not shy of spending quite a great deal more than usual and are fans of Japanese style cuisine.. then this is a must.
There are two menus,first of which is traditionial Japanese, and the other fused with Mediterranean flavours. we went for this option at around 120 euros a head without wine.
Every dish was beautifully served and presented by discreet but friendly staff. Restaurant itself had a nice feeling and ambiance to it .where each table have full view of the chefs working in the open kitchen.
It was a wonderfull dining experience, the only thing that I found slightly over the top were the
prices for drinks, but it is a first class hotel and the prices reflect that, but my glass of cava at 12 euros would have been justified if they had at least filled the glass...and the same for a glass of wine that was a " tasting" amount!! ..coffee only 6 euros a pop though!?!
Anyway.... apart from extreme pricing will be going back next year.

“Fabulous Sushi, magical atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

I have eaten here twice now. First time when they first opened and we had the tasting menu which was lovely. I never realised I would love so many dishes. We just had to go back, last weekend we ate at Kabuki Raw and once again it was magical. We had a cocktail at the piano lounge, so relaxing with great views. They have a larger seating area as its summer. Service was perfect and we ordered just of the menu. Once again it was super, such attention to detail and by far the best Sushi restaurant I have ever eaten at. The setting was so beautiful and relaxing. They have a great Saki menu as well. You will need to book in advance.
