Excellent quality sushi! Fantastic service! Lovely restaurant. I was unsure to try sushi here....just because it's Costa Rica, which does not seem like a sushi kinda place. Happy I did. Yum!

This is the kind of sushi restaurant where you can sit back, relax, enjoy the cool atmosphere and have a drink with good Japanese food. Menu is not very diverse but you can find the basic Japanese food. This restaurant is located inside the Intercontinental Hotel. They offer parking for a fee. Service is just ok, My salmon teriyaki was... More

I highly recommend Nau for a business lunch or just a casual meal/dinner. There are some options on the menu that are average, but feel free to ask any staff member their recommendations and trust me you won't be disappointed, they are one of the 3 main restaurants in our best city hotel and not for nothing.

Unfortunately we experienced the same bad service as "Barak K" on 1/20... we had to wait for service so we could place our order. Also never had follow-up service to offer additional drinks or dessert. On the upside, food was very good. For me service is at least 1/2 the experience. Three stars may be pushing the review.

I had a good experience: attentive service, fast serve and good (average) sushi. The food was ok but not amazing or very good.

The service not good. I took extremely long time to get our drinks and even longer to get our food. While the food was fresh it wasn't anything special. Find another sushi place

Was disappointed this time, food did not seem as fresh, service was poor, it seems difficult to get Servers to return to fill drinks.....we left and went to a sports bar instead.

We tried Sakana Tempura, California Rolls and Teriyaki Stake. All of our dishes were timely served and delicious. Service was attentive, Marisela Martinez and her staff made us felt in home. We will surely be back soon.
