One of the most popular Japanese restaurants in the Girona area

Do you like sushi? If so, you'll doubtless be pleased to hear that one of the best sushi chefs in the world is found here in the Costa Brava, specifically in Cadaqués. His name is Federico Filipetti (although everybody knows him as Fede) and he's an Argentinian chef who trained, among other places, in El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca. Like those places (one now closed, the other very much still active, and both named on more than one occasion the world's best restaurant), Filipetti is renowned as one of the key assets on the Girona gastronomic landscape. Discover why for yourself with a trip to Haiku, a small and picturesque restaurant that is more popular with each day that passes. Even though Fede tends toward traditional Japanese cooking, he brings a personal touch that is almost Mediterranean to each dish, converting sashimi, nigri, maki and tempura into memorable experiences. It's also worth mentioning that the vegetables, plants, flowers and herbs used are grown by the chef in his allotment. If you go, we recommend trying the Kobe beef carpaccio; it's finger-licking good!
