We attended for lunch on a Thursday, no available tables outside but a comfy and cool table inside was.
We hadn't been before as it is a relatively new restaurant but were surprised how busy it was for a lunchtime. Many of the diners were portuguese which in our opinion is always a good sign!
We ordered two set lunch plates - spring rolls to start and one sushi and one tempura to follow.
Although there were 3 of us the food we received was enough to go round and left room for a cheeky ice cream from the bar on the lido later!
Fresh produce and quality fish used!
Prompt service but not rushed

This new sushi restaurant and adjoining bar are located at the lower level of the Lido promenade with good views of the ocean. For the restaurant there is a choice of outdoor and indoor seating.

We arrived in the evening for a meal just before the restaurant opened but we were offered seating outside and were generously given complementary ponchas to enjoy as they were running a voucher promotion at the time.

Our waitress for the evening was very friendly and helpful and the food was generally very good to excellent.

The tempura prawns with almonds were a real highlight although the accompanying sauce was, in my view, a bit too overpowering for them. The edamame beans were also slightly overcooked. All other food and drink was really enjoyable and we will definitely be back to this restaurant....will try the fusion sushi next visit.

Newish place serving sushi just above the ocean. Great food and great wine but especially wonderful service. Really enjoyed our meal here which went on for four hours. It doesn't have to take that long but was just so enjoyable so why leave? Will return...
