Japonese restaurant in front of the Sao Francisco Beach. The quality is ok, it is a little slow the service. There is a place to park.

Atmosphere and seating very pleasant in the evening. Not impressed by lack of explanation about what some of the Japanese dishes were: but whatever I chose seemed very tasty
