My new favourite sushi restaurant is actually aboard a boat. Moored on a private dock, the 80 ft Rolano offers a unique and authentic ambience of westcoast dining. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited to 6-8, there are only two seatings per night, and only on Fridays and Saturdays.
Captain Ralph is your host, and is quite a character. He'll entertain you with stories of the Rolano's history, as well as his own colourful history. Not to worry though, if it's a romantic evening you're looking for, that's what you'll have.
The menu offers an abundance of creative choices - - my favourite is the Sweet Pepper and Prawn Roll, a touch of honey makes it a standout. If it's too hard to decide though, just leave it up to the sushi chef. She'll surprise you with one of her favourites.
