Have been coming to Cabo for years and it will probably be our last stop here. It was sub par and not worth the money.

Ángel Carbajal is an absolute genius! His creativity, passion and vision to create his concept of Japanese cuisine in concert with the fusion of some distinctly Mexican flavors and influences is nothing short of brilliant. The fish is absolutely fresh (they have their own fishing boat), the presentations visually delightful and the flavor combinations unsurpassed. Our idea of a perfect... More

I´m a regular, so I was really surprise at the lack of standards previously experiences. It was the time of the day when they were changing shifts, but I wasn´t expecting a lackluster performance on food and service. And on my birhtday! The rice on the first roll was "hard" and the fish really cold, my gin and tonic tasted... More

First off the sushi is amazing. The fish is extremely fresh and the preparation of the fish in various rolls was outstanding. The service was fantastic. I loved how attentive and you could always find someone when it was needed. The location is centrally located and a great spot at night.

My husband and I dined at Nick-San's during our stay in Cabo this October. We were delighted with fresh sushi, the attentive service from the wait staff and the ambiance of the restaurant. The menu is extensive, so we requested that our server suggest items from the menu. His selections did not disappoint! We enjoyed the sashimi ciiantro and the... More

Another nice eating experience in Cabo. We had some very nice sushi and sashimi and were fortunate to sit in front of Abel who did a great job of meeting our requirements. The area around the restaurant is also intriguing so we will go back tomorrow to do some shopping

This was interesting. The food was amazing the service felt like they were hovering. when you needed service you couldnt find any and when you wanted to enjoy the meal they were ll over the table 3 or 4 servers to each table. little much. BUT the food. awesome. I got the tuna tostada and the Clear Lobster roll. EXCELLENT.

We had lunch in this restaurant in Los Cabos, just outside Cabo San Lucas and every dish that we ordered was prepared to perfection. The soft shelled crab was fantastic and all the sushi dishes were exceptional. We ordered dishes prepared from local fish, an added plus. The service was impeccable and the prices in line with the quality of... More
