The restaurant is on the 1st floor overlooking Camps Bay beach. The interior is modern but still friendly and the food is great too. We had new style tuna sashimi, some good sushi and great salmon and beef teriyaki. The service was excellent.

Being one floor above the street, meant that the view of the sunset was even better! Although the servings were small, the food was tasty. Estelle was our waitress and she was great. I would return, again.
