The food and wine we had for dinner was really good and fair priced. What made the evening even better was the excellent, friendly and funny service. Enjoyed the evening very much, a sure recommendation.

We had lunch here.  It was quite busy with two tour groups but the sushi was delicious.  I had the rainbow roll which was very fresh and tasty.  There is also outdoor seating overlooking the bay.
