I said to self to keep expectations low and enthusiasm high. Well!!! It was amazing! The setting on the beach was magnificent. The chef and our food and service was outstanding. They made our family party so special! We'll never forget it! Thank you again!

Some interesting variations with rolls topped with thin cuts of lime & lemon which was lovely touch- but don't expect traditional sushi bar rolls & food. No seaweed wrapped rolls , & rice was greasy & over flavoured with I'm not sure what. Tempura was a little greasy. Service was excellent & made the evening!

My boy friend and I ate here during our trip to Nuevo Vallarta in September. We decided to walk from our airbnb and see what food options we would find on this stretch- not many- our fault for not planning better! This place was open, looked nice, and we did not think we would find much else, so we decided... More

After sitting at our table to 37 minutes with nothing but water, we walked out. I can't recall ever walking out of a restaurant before. They were understaffed and poorly trained.

We did not eat in the restaurant itself. Instead we sat with the manager and came up with a 5 course meal that was delivered to the beach at the Marival Resort. They did it right. A meal we will never forget

A very big FAIL!!!! We waited more than an hour for our food, we even had to cancel part of the order. Also, the food was nothing special. Hilariously it was full, but some tables also complained about the waiting time.
