A unique and intimate space serving authentic Japanese cuisine including sushi. A wine cellar with a large selection of wines for all occasions, fresh cocktails made from seasonal fruits. Daily chalkboard menu depending on local available produce. Also a great vibe when hosting live musicians. Lush garden and wooden furniture setting, comfortable sofas invite you to unwind and relax.
