They have traditional Japanese dishes as well as some very creative favourites like the warm sushi rolls and foie gras sushi - divine! The house white wine was delicious and matched perfectly with the food.

We stopped by chance for lunch, after wanting to take in the 360 degree viewing tower at the Arena.

The restaurant is situated in a majestic location looking up on The Catalunya Art Gallery and the stunning forum and fountains below. In honesty we chose the restaurant for the location more than the food and that definitely didn't disappoint.

The food was pretty standard Sushi. Nothing too offensive, catered well for vegetarians and at a reasonable price. Throw in some weird Spanish/Japanese fusion dishes (fried potato with a wasabi alioli) and it was enough of a place to be memorable.

However, the best part without a doubt is the view.

Muy buena opción si eres amante del suhi. The service was excellent and very fast. Nice ambience and very well located if staying in Plaza España.

You can also enjoy great views from the outlook and get the chance to see the Magic Fountain Ligths-music and water display at Montjuic.

Sardines tempura is mouth watering!

Popped in for lunch because it started raining- it was a treat. Service was efficient and friendly and we enjoyed everything.

This place is overpriced and has slow service to boot(1 hour for 3 rolls). Paid €37.5 for 3 rolls and miso soup. The miso soup it self was almost €5(4.90 to be exact) honestly was worth €3 tops. The rolls were average size and nothing spectacular. Almost walked out and only paid for the soup the manager quickly rushed over and assured me it'd be another 3 minutes for the 3 rolls. It wasn't it was another 10 minutes. He was very apologetic but did not do much to rectify the situation. He didn't offer to comp anything. The only reason this place didn't get 1 star was due to its unique locale(on top of a tower overlooking a large rotunda). Needless to say I wouldn't recommend it.
