We had heard a buzz around town that this sushi spot was good, and the murmurs did not disappoint. As a gracious waiter led us to our table and we were enveloped in the tasteful wood-heavy decor with an undulated ceiling resembling ocean waves, we knew this tab was going to hurt. So we threw caution to the wind and ordered a starter of oysters — which turned out to be from Peniche — and a bottle of sake. 

The head waiter recommended we order the Moriawase, which is a varied selection of sashimi including some more common fish like sea bass (robalo) and salmon, to some more unique varieties like blackbelly rosefish (boca negra), greater amberjack (lírio), and the delectable alfonsino fish, also called red bream in some parts (imperador), which you simply can’t find at most sushi restaurants in Lisbon. The flavors of the fresh, locally sourced fish were delightful — and they were definitely highlighted by the amazing in-house wasabi paste, which is like nothing I’ve had before. 

The menu is quite extensive, and if like myself you are not a seasoned sushi connoisseur, be ready to ask questions. António, the head waiter, is very attentive and helpful, and magically seemed to appear when we were faced with a query about what to order next. Their menu also includes some cooked options like gyozas, tempura, and udon, but the raw fish is definitely the star of the show.
