Fancy some sushi and Tempura? Look no further as this is the best place in the area. Food is always freshly prepared and a delight for anyone's taste buds. Service is equally good and attentive. Prices are quite fair and good value for money. There is both indoor and outdoor seating although the outdoor seating can be, at peak hours,... More

Sushi was very nice and fresh, nice location as well, quite close to the sea. I would recommend to work on staff, as both waiter and the waitress were not polite and helpful. I have been there couple of time. Sushi was very nice, but the service was rather disapoiting.

Roomy,nice ambiance - great food and waiting time is minimal. But the servers are either students or drifters on 'working holidays'. Most can barely speak English and every time, one of them just has to get something in the order wrong. Last month the boss evidently wasn't there because they chucked everyone out at 2230hrs with some lame excuse. If... More

Although the sushi was 'freshly prepared' we didn't think the fish was very fresh. Set menu for lunch EUR 23 was not very good. There is wifi. The bathrooms were disgusting and we would not go there again.

Loveky food and amazing service. Very reasonable. The edamame was a total let down though - very soggy indeed.

We really enjoyed our family diner at Cafe Sakurai. Service was very good and the food was great. Nothing to complain about...
