I think i ate the best sushi in my life here in Costa Rica. It was simply amazing! The owner is really passionate about his job and shows this. So come over here and discover his incredibly tasty sushis! :)

In an area that specializes in ceviche, it's no surprise the sushi is pretty decent. It's got a hip vibe, with an interesting menu and plenty of vegetarian options, and the rolls are HUGE (10 pieces each). I recommend the sushi with plantains. A word of warning: they don't print prices on the menu. Four rolls cost us about $40,... More

We visited Kappa sushi twice and enjoyed it very much. Small and clean restaurant. Good service, fresh food and the prices are fair and worth the size and the quality of the dishes.

The sushi here was surprisingly tasty, well presented, and inexpensive. We also ordered two other dishes that were equally good. The waiters were very helpful and courteous. The restaurant is situated at the back of several other restaurants on a side street and there were several stray dogs around (with mostly outdoor seating, this can be a bit annoying). Overall,...

Cute little sushi bar. Nice ambiance including good music. Was craving some umami flavors and sake. This place was able to scratch that itch. Salmon handroll was well above average. Spicy maguro roll was very well made, just not spicy. House sake, served piping hot... Five bucks. I'm a sushi snob and was pretty skeptical about getting sushi in CR.... More

For whatever reason, we were hesitant to try sushi in a foreign country, but are so glad we finally did. The food was excellent!

Quaint sushi bar with great art, music and ambiance. We're from LA and eat a lot of sushi, but you can't compare it to that. For one its moderately priced, and they don't have access to all of the ingredients of a Japanese restaurant in the states. So, for what we were looking for, which was a departure from the... More

Pleasant restaurant off the main street. Small and intimate run by a couple of girls who have had Japanese training. The prawn tempura dragon roll was as good as I have had in Japan. Nigiri Sushi not brilliant - too much rice, but don't let that stop you from eating here. Japanese(Asahi) and Chinese(Tsing Tao) beers also available. Good luck... More
