The Sushi is very delicious, the staff was nice and the outside sitting was wonderful, chairs with umbrellas covering you from the sun.

We ate here multiple times since we stayed in the hotel next door. The food was good price, especially lunch special, and fresh and tasty. Try a Friday night, it was very fun when the locals come out dancing in the square.

Overall I must say the sushi was just OK. Not great but not bad either. Would I eat there again when I visit? Probably not because it did not blow me away.

Overall a reasonable experience although the service was slow. The food was good and tasted authentic. The tempura was a bit oily so no 5 stars.

Don't avoid this place because I mention slow service. Maybe they were taking time to make the meal just right. I may go there again before I leave Curacao. It was reasonably priced too. FYI, they don't have Steak Teriyaki, but they have Korean Steak.

We stopped here on the way back to the cruise ship. Service was a bit slow, especially after asking for the bill. We only had drinks but they have a very extensive sushi menu, so I suppose this is the place to go if you fancy sushi:) I was over the moon with the "Cassis" they sell as I can't... More
