Delicious sushi! The atmosphere is cozy and quiet, good for conversation. Staff was very kind, extremely accommodating. They even turned down the air conditioning when we said we were cold. Easy walk from the hotel (El San Juan)

Surprisingly really good sushi. The Tropical roll that had the fried sweet plantains on top was out of this world! Definitely recommend if you want sushi in this area.

All I can say is WOW. We have eaten at dozens of sushi restaurants over the years and Yamiko is without a doubt the best we have ever had. The Don Q roll was incredible. The sangria was delicious and the service was the best we have had during our week long visit to Puerto Rico.

Easy walk from our condo and good reviews made us want to try this place. We were not disappointed. Nice variety on the menu which allowed for some customization of roll orders. Quality was very good and very tasty. We tried five different rolls and all were above the level of expectation. Don't miss this place.
