Yuzu, Nikkei Cuisine

Overwater Nikkei Restaurant

Book a table

Our fine-dining restaurant stands in a distinctly romantic setting over the lagoon. Here, our chefs blend the fresh and spicy punch of Peruvian dishes with the elegance of Japanese cuisine to capture the essence of the unique culinary fusion known as Nikkei. The rich legacy of this cuisine tells the story of Japanese farmers landing in Peru and using local ingredients to make their traditional dishes. Led by Chef Anibal Torres, an expert in the flavours and techniques of Nikkei cuisine, Yuzu places focus on creative ceviche dishes inspired by cuisine from Lima. All ingredients are sustainably line-caught by local fishermen using methods that do not impact the balance of the biosphere.

The flavours of Yuzu sing from the pages of its menu. Ceviches and sashimi celebrate the clean freshness of the fish caught in our waters. Roasted duck breast with cilantro rice and sweet miso pepper sauce takes your taste buds to Peru via Japan. To finish, sweet dishes, such as Peruvian purple corn pudding spiced with cinnamon and cloves, bring the unique characteristics of Nikkei cuisine to delectable life.
