Fresh sushi in this chic little restaurant. We ordered 3 plates of sushi and they were all very good. The price is reasonable (about $10 for 10 pieces of sushi). We ordered the pineapple, cucumber and ginger juice which was refreshing. It's a good break from eating Gallo pinto if you've been in Costa Rica for too long!

I was very sceptical of a sushi shop but I was tired of tico food so decided we'd go there for our nyeve meal. Glad we took a chance, they are actually quite good! A bit too dark inside to see what you're eating. Dragon roll was awesome, ponzu is meant to be their signature but not my favourite. Crispy... More

Ate here for lunch. Ordered 2 vegetation rolls which took over 40 minutes to arrive. They tasted really good though! A bit on the pricey side...

I enjoyed the innovative shape of the Volcano roll. The veggie roll was good as well and had a plantain on top.

I live in La Fortuna so as you can guess, I get cravings for something other than rice & beans! I wanted sushi for my birthday so of course it was Kappa Sushi! Delicious sushi that melts in your mouth & a couple of cold Imperial beers...perfect! The quality of the sushi is top notch and the staff is super... More

Pleasantly surprised to find great sushi in La Fortuna. A little pricey compared to the states but worth it. The spicy tuna role with Siracha was delicious.

Who would have thought that Costa Rica would have such good sushi! We visited Kappa on a rainy night and had sake, miso, and a few of their signature rolls. Everything was delicious and the portions were huge!

We ate here last year and made sure to return on this year's trip. We stopped in for lunch and sat on the patio in order to see the volcano when it cleared. The miso soup, edamame, and sushi rolls were excellent. We especially liked the sushi rolls with local flavors. We had one roll with tempura coconut on the... More

I had never intended to eat sushi in Costa Rica. We stayed at the gorgeous San Bosco inn and decided to have a bite since it was the only restaurant offering here for dinner. (They have a great breakfast buffet otherwise for the in house guests). I was pleasantly surprised at the skill level of this mostly young female Costa... More

Fresh, tasty and delightfully presented. We really enjoyed the different sushi rolls we chose from the quite broad menu and the presentation was really great. Good wasabi, soy and ginger to go with it. Excellent and a nice find in an unexpected place
