    Excellent fusion of Japanese and Peruvian! We had a ceviche maki, boiled octopus w/ a quinoa blend and panchetta with bean n rice. Each dish was impressive and in good portion. However, not recommending the green tea Mochi. Peru Beer was good ~ Service was lovely. It was worth the wait ( Restaurant reopens at 9pm)

    Very nice place near the Port Olímpic. Food at top notch quality, I really appreciated the Nippo-Peruan fusion. The staff is efficient and gentle. Great service and care for the client (I’ve been surprised by receiving - for free - a little portion of well-elaborated fish and vegetable composition while I was waiting for my main dish). Very good value for money indeed.

    Slow service. Food is good but nothing special. There are plenty of better options in BCN!
