I have been here for dinner and the place has a soul. It is not fancy but very familiar and simply nice. There some menus from 30 to 50 euro but you get several plates, even to much food for my stomac! but I hate all because the quality of the fish is outstanding. i would like to know if... More

I love sushi, and this place has some very tasty food. Nice setting too, a bit of a D.I.Y. fairy tale atmosphere, little lamps and stuff. Only big drawback is the chef. He comes to your tabel, telling you exactly how you should eat your sushi, which piece first, which piece second. He actually stands there and waits until you... More

Usually in this kind of restaurants I always choose for sushi but I didn't like it you could only choose for a couple expensive menu's, you HAVE to have the miso soup and the starter. The sushi menu includes quite a lot of nigiri, of which I'm not the biggest fan. So I chose the brochettes of 3 different kinds... More

Wasabi is a magical place - for the food, the atmosphere, the decoration, and the service. One of my favorite restaurants for the overall experience.

Due to all very good reviews, my expectations were maybe too grand, as I was bit disappointed to the experience. Sushi, maki, sashimi were of good quality, but variety was quite typical and lacked the "wow" effect. Service was slow and nothing extra - no introduction to what was on our plates or ways to enjoy them. I would also... More

My son organised an outing to this Japanese restaurant. He phoned ahead to ask if they could cater for a vegetarian. They put together for me a really succulent menu with things I'd never tasted before. I really appreciated that they explained to me that the soup had some fish in it so not on my menu, as I would...

I always have dilemma going to a nice Japanese restaurant. I love sashimi, sushi, grilled chicken skewers; tempura and much more and I want to try them all when I visit a nice/highly recommended Japanese restaurant. This restaurant offered all these in one bento!! This is one of the best bento I have had. I was worried that I will... More

After 1 1/2 weeks we needed a change and found this on trip advisor. The sushi is fresh and the chef did demonstrate how to eat sushi as promised in the reviews I had read. What was not clear is that the restaurant is well off the beaten path, at least from our hotel in vieux ville. An 18 euro... More

We had the 55 EU/person tasting menu and it was amazingly great - a great fine-dining experience (wine not included). Great atmosphere, great service and beautiful setting.
