We've been coming here on our yearly Santa Barbara trips for the last 3 years. This year, UCSB graduation weekend for us. I made the reservation a month in advance thinking of all the out of towners. We were a party of 4 at 7:15 on a Monday. The day before of our reservation, I had called to see if I could add another person to our reservation and was told abruptly "no". When we arrived I thought the place would be packed and was empty (out of towners left already) so really an extra person could of easily been added. Not Happy!In the past, this place has been pretty good. This time it was just OK. Presentation lacking. We ordered the typical sushi: Uni, Salmon, Tuna Yellowtail, Eel, Smelt eggs and for the non-sushi eaters, Chicken Karaage and B.B.Q. Chicken Donburi.The cooked food dishes were very good. The sushi OK, the uni big serving but tasted watery, Smelt eggs were a little fishy tasting, the rest of the Sushi/Sashimi OK.Atmosphere: typical sushi place, Service: good, Food: OK

No problem to have dinner after 11 pm, but rice in the rolls was really overcooked, way too soft. Fish is fresh and well presented, not what usually you find in jappo restaurants. Not easy to have my usual green tea. Gyoza also a bit cold. I wonât be back, even if overall satisfied. Appreciated the coach instead of traditional chairs...Hello matteor_fontanella,Thank you very much for your comment! We're sorry you didn't have a good experience.Thank you so much for help us to be better!Hapo Sake Bar

Good selection of traditional Japanese food. I don't eat much raw fish, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a wide selection of cooked Japanese food, grilled fish and steak too. Surprisingly cheap for the quality. The restaurant sits right next to the water and yachts. Nice ambience and view. English speaking waitress was pleasantly friendly, another plus. I tried the Japanese beers and Japanese whiskey. Having tried many "Japanese" restaurants in Barcelona, I highly recommend Kaisei as authentic, good service and pocket friendly too!

I don't like sushi at all and I loved this restaurant! Not only did the chef make sure that we had plenty of food but he also made sure that it wad sushi and nonsushi dishes which were absolutley amazing. The sushi was amazing according to my family!
