ICHIBAN continuously surprises one at each visit! Its Menu offers a great diversity of starters, main course dishes, desserts, Beer and Wine list, as well as after dinner appetizers. For starters we had the shrimp tempura; for main course we chose the 20 pieces Sashimi accompanied by sautée vegetables (utterly delicious and beautifully presented!); for dessert the Tofu cheesecake with...

They say that the first time you try sushi you either love it or hate it...well this restaurant certainly made me love it. I went with my parents and we really were out of our comfort zone and didn't know what to order, we said this to our waitress and she was super lovely, offered to help us choose the... More

I always choose the lunch time to come to this restaurant so that i can take the most out of the great view (and also it is considerably more affordable than dinner). I love everthing about the experience they provide: music is good, the lunch menu concept (starter, sashimi, sushi and dessert) is very well conceived and delivered. You can... More

I visited Ichiban several times. Sushi menu has a great value for money specially over lunch. 4 dishes and desert and during weekdays a drink is included. The sushi is very traditional full of small details that make it special. We also tried once the take away service. Perfect accommodation, everything was fresh. I strongly recommend.

It's been quite surprising to find this small Japanese restaurant in Porto, facing the Atlantic ocean. We had a nice lunch with fresh ingredients. The menu card is small but it correctly represents the Japanese cuisine. Fresh tofu was served with katsuobushi, so thumbs up ;)

The sushi cannot be more real, not just the fish but also the"shari (rice)." It reminded me of how Atlantic tuna was treasured in Japan. And "tofu (hiyayakko)." And even "natto." Surprisingly, most ingredients were procured locally - which is quite essential in Japanese cuisine to enjoy freshness. It beats many of its rivals in Japan.日本にも支店が欲しいくらい。

A Japanese restaurant serving top quality food. Not just the sushi/sashimi but the starters were top notch. Two of us ate here - one Japanese and one half-Japanese who spends 20% of the year living in Tokyo - and we rate this very highly. The selection of dishes on offer were authentic, and the taste was perfect. Comments on the... More

If you like sushi ok a good one. If you do not like don't go. I order salmon instead of sushi , sashimi etc etc . Nor well done. Service fast but only educated enough.
