Seafood was great and such a wonderful experience to pick your own filets, prawns,etc. The kids really enjoyed the sushi and picking the plates on the conveyor belts like in Japan. Priced higher than average but service, ambience, and unique dining experience helped.

Fresh fish, amazing food all-round and service is great! Quick and effortless. Also, right by the beach - convenient for an afternoon stroll.

A great place to have dinner, very polite and knowledgeable waiters and the prices are very reasonable for the quality you receive. The lack of menu and the fact you see what you order was really a great experience for me. I definitely recommend.
