Nick San is a must if you love sushi and you find yourself in downtown Cabo! If you want the true sushi experience, sit at the bar and don't bother looking at the menu. Work with your sushi chef to create an experience for you that you won't forget. We dined with Edie and each of his recommendations were absolutely... More

I found out about Nick-San while talking with a couple at the resort, so we decided to give it a try. The waiters are attentive and make amazing suggestions. Everything they suggested was a hit! Scallops served in the oyster shell appetizer, sushi with cilantro sauce, and anything the waiters recommend.

A little pricey but so worth it. Our go to meal: tuna tostadas, clear lobster roll, sake lemon roll and a green salad to share. Delicious. Everything on the menu is superb. Scallop Dynamite, yum.

You start our your dinner presented with a little white dot. After the server pours hot water on it, it expands into a full size finger towel. We love the items here that you don't find at other sushi restaurants like the tuna tostadas (they are so wonderful, you need to eat at least two). We opted for mostly local... More

A very nicely appointed restaurant in Cabo San Lucas. The drinks were good but seemed watered down but the food was OUTSTANDING. The fish whether it was sashimi or sushi was AMAZING and truly delicious across the board. The service was solid and its was an overall great experience.

I find that this restaurant has been going a little bit backward. Not the same attention, not the same tastes. I suppose it is still successful but when we were there, 3 tables only were occupied. Probably low season.

Always a favorite for sushi in Cabo! Great location and great staff! You'll find familiar and traditional rolls on the menu as well as a good sake selection. Great for taking a break from local cuisine! Great location and fun atmosphere!

My wife and I were there recently and once again it didn't disappoint. The sushi is very good and I can't say enough about the service! There's no lack of good sushi in LA and this place is right there with the best but it tops Nobu or any other place I've been to when it comes to service. Second... More

Let me state for the get-go that dining in Cabo is an exercise in futility if you're seeking more than mediocrity. I have yet to have a truly outstanding meal here. BTW what's up with all the Italian restaurants in Cabo? Who comes to Cabo to eat Italian food? For that matter, finding sushi here is also a bit weird.... More
