If you like sushi you should go here! It is in our opinion the best place in Playa Del Carmen for sushi. We hope they keep up the quality.

The only thing we did not like is the prices of some of the drinks. 55 pesos for lemonade is probably one of the highest prices for it in Playa. So go here hungry and not thirsty.

If you live in Playa this can be a fun restaurant to go out for sushi or that special night out. For tourist this is a good spot right off 5th Avenue where you can take in good food and views.
