I wish I kept more photos or at least had a better camera than one that's taken from a brick phone. It does no do the place ANY justice! I am from Vancouver, sushi is what we're known for. This place beats the majority of Vancouver's sushi restaurant in a second. For more reviews check out my blog the tila... More

Great sushi with Mexican flare and creativity - trust your waiter with selections, decide if you want it spicy and sit back and relax. They will sing a birthday lullaby and add a small cake; enjoy the sake and ambiance. But get there early to avoid the mad late crowd

If you want the freshest, most cutting edge sushi in Los Cabos Nick-San is your place. It's beautiful, the service is exceptional and the sushi/sashimi is some of the best I have ever eaten. But, it comes with a price. I would argue that there are some other exceptional options in Los Cabos (Koi and Daikoku) that may not offer... More

We ordered the 2 oyster with ponzu and shrimp and scallop gyozas. Waiter suggested hamachi in ponzu with fried onions (scrumptious). All were fresh and delicious. We had Chirashi with fish, octopus, squid, tomago, shrimp on rice. And one main of fried seabass wrapped with crab. Expensive but very good sushi and beers.

We had a tremendously good meal eating here with my brother who had been before. The waiter was very helpful, creating dishes after seeing the types of things we liked. Every dish was a wonderful mix of flavors and textures. Excellent!

Nick San has the best Sushi I've ever had. The lobster roll is the very best. We had been there before and couldn't wait to go back!

There are quite a few Nick-san restaurants. We went to the one just next to Palmilla. If you are a sushi snob, then this will be a slight notch down. But if you want a great sushi experience in Mexico, this is the place to go. They have nailed the house specialities. This is where i recommend you go on... More
