A modern busy restaurant but tables were well spaced to ensure privacy. Service was prompt food was very good, hot tasty and plentiful. There was also a sushi menu available. Good range of drinks on offer. Dessert menu was disappointing mostly ice cream.

After a long wait we could finally place our order. The oysters we wanted were out of stock. We ordered sparking water, but got still water instead. The white wine was placed on the table without a cooler or ice. We ordered tuna sushi and salmon sushi. They looked excatcly the same. The salmon was made hours ago and was dark red. The kingclip was completely overcooked. The lemon butter saus was horrible. It was melted butter with lemon juice and was curdled. The boiled potatoe were great!

The restaurant is located at the marina quite a short walk from the city centre. It offers a variety off sushi, other seafood platters and something from the land. The waiters are pretty friendly. We loved the atmosphere in this modern restaurant. The also got a poolbar next to the marina.

Came to flee the weather when in town and hence without reservation. Were lucky to get a table on a side. Service was prompt with still water and menus, but forgot to bring bread and butter that all other tables had.

We ordered half a dozen wild oysters medium size and very amazed how large they were, and absolutely delicious. Don't even add lemon.

Also loved our 6 oysters Japanese style - quite big too, with ginger and a little bit of tiny red caviar. Great.

The sushi rolls (8 pieces each) were good, but as compared to the oysters not worth too much comment. Don't get me wrong, they were perfect, it is just that they oysters....

About three or 4 white wines by the glass, no recommendation but ok. Too warm, so they brought ice cubes :-(

Except for the mishap with the bread and the wine perfect, we would come again.
