This place is a touch of the city at the beach in Costa Rica. The menu is versatile and full of delicious seafood. The outdoor seating is really nice and laid back. Everyone enjoyed the spicy tuna hand rolls which seemed to be a favorite.Overall this is a great place to eat.

We took the fried rice and the sesame chicken. The fried rice lacked vegetables and the chicken was hard and overcooked. The whole plate only tasted like soy sauce. The sesame chicken was good but the vegetable side dish wasn't impressive. The price of the plates were similar to what you would find in Canada. Furthemore, when we asked for... More

Fresh, delicious, generous bento box. Big and good miso soup, plus dessert. You won't regret it. Good service.

It isn't always easy to get good vegan food when you were traveling but many of the restaurants in Santa Teresa have at least a vegan option. I had a couple of very nice meals here.

This is a nice place to go. We were greeted warmly by the front of house/waitress and chose a table outside. The food was good. I wouldn't say any more or less than that. I had the seaweed salad and sashimi. It was nice. Another at our table ordered the chicken noodle dish and another the udon soup - again... More

We tried 2 sushi restaurants in town. This one is considered not the best but we feel it is the better value. We recommend this place. Good location, good food, good value!

The first time we went there for lunch. They offer some specials (Bento Boxes) which are very nice and also the price is good. The second time we went there for dinner. Sushi is very expensive here so we took something else. Fish for the normal meals was not available. The food was good but too expensive for the quantity.... More

The sushi was adequate for the price. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good. For some reason they weren't serving cocktails that night which we found odd.
