Excellent sushi! My favorite dish is the tuna tartar. While part of the Marival Group, it isn't included in your all-inclusive package at the Residences; however, it is well worth the extra cost.More

This place has excellent service, and the food is amazing, they give Japanese dishes a slight Mexican touch that takes them to a new level. Only thing to keep in mind is prices are on par with Canadian sushi places.More

Description
Nicksan, located in Riviera Nayarit at Residences Plaza, next to Marival Residences Luxury Resort, not only offers Japanese cuisine. It offers an artisan experience in every way from the arrival to the last bite or sip of you drink. This is how this establishment of Mexican and Japanese cuisine fusion is described. Nicksan goes above and beyond. It's experiences are born from the mix of traditional ingredients of two cultures on opposite sides of the world. Resulting in the birth of incomparable flavors that no other restaurants like this can offer.
