“Overpriced mediocre and slow service”
Review of Yakuza by Olivier

The service was slow, we were stood by the front door for ages before being seated, then waited 15 minutes before being asked if we wanted a drink or any water.

We ordered sushi, fish tacos, noodles and gyozas.
All were of a ‘reasonable’ standard, however they were extremely overpriced.
€11 for 1 small fish taco and €18 for 4 small pieces of sushi.
There are cover charges, service and tax added onto the bill which added an extra €30 to the bill.

We would have been happy to pay the price if the food reflected it, however it did not!

We would not recommend this resturant.

Sushi was delicious! We ordered the hamachi with ponzu sauce, fish taco with guacamole, and sashimi sampler! All were amazing...fish was extremely fresh!! Wish we had time for a second meal here during our trip!

Very good service and attention (I was with my two daughters 2y and 3y) - Great tempura and original sushi and rolls - Worth the money not expensive like I read in other reviews in a nice place.

Went with family there on a Saturday night, service is really poor. There is no one in charge of front of the house, all waiters/ waitresses are on minimum wage with no training. Only one poor guy on the bar. As a result drinks find not arrive, various dishes ordered did not arrive and no one able to discuss food options for my daughter who is a vegan and we had pre notified restaurant she would need help,

In summary, over priced, not authentic and worst service in the Algarve. Will be taking this up,direct with Pine Cliff hotel but classic sign of over expansion for a well known resort.

We had dinner here on our last night in Portugal. The sushi was excellent as was the setting, a beautifully decorated restaurant in a very nice area. I did find it was a bit pricey overall. They were very accommodating as we arrived without a reservation in the middle of July. The service overall was not bad but for what we paid I felt we had to call the waiter over on far too many occasions. Overall very good.
