Expert review of Matsuri

Great Japanese food in pretty surroundings at the edge of the Alameda.

This is Seville's newest Japanese restaurant, and I think it's one of the best.

Food and drink: 

There's a nice selection of soups and starters – the tuna tataky is amazing. I also like the mixed tempura – light and crisp and tasty. And the sushi is better than you can usually find elsewhere in Seville. During the week (Tuesday–Friday) there is a 10 euros lunch special that is excellent value. But be aware that the 8% VAT is not included in the prices on the menu.

Ambience: 

Simple and modern, it's very tastefully done. But they have joss sticks burning all over the place, which I personally find unbearable. Especially with such delicately flavoured food – it knocks your tastebuds for six. Happily they will put out the incense if you ask them.

Service: 

Service is courteous and efficient.

Location: 

Just on the edge of the Alameda de Hercules, it's about a 20-minute walk from the old centre of town and 5-10 minutes from the main shopping area.

Price advice: 

Starters cost 4-7 euros, with the exception of the tuna tataky, which is 10 euros. The best value are the mixed sushi and tempura dishes, from 12-15 euros. Dinner for two with wine will cost you 50-60 euros per person.
