Description: El Sushi de Holbox is the best asiatic restaurant in the Island. Our starter, fresh tuna tiradito won the first price on the holbox gastronomic awards. The terrace has a wonderful atmosphere as it is hidden from the noise of the street. Come and enjoy of our chefs rolls as sakana roll, niguiris or just a delicious margarita!

Sushi isn't exactly what you think of when you think dining in Mexico, but this place works. The fish is fresh, and the rolls are tasty. And the price is right. Our server Alberto was attentive and friendly. Try the warm sake. Would go back.

My wife and i are sushi lovers all over the world. In this location on this small island in a country not really known for sushi we have been really surpirsed first by the super charming Alberto with a great smile who recommended the specials and took care of us perfectly. Our favourite disch was the very thin sliced white fish, like a capacio or sashimi style BUT - and this was so delicious- added by Truffel Oil, Lemon and tiny chilli flavour, MEGA! One day i had three Startes! After, Alberto recommended the Banana Roll, great Kombi of sweat and sushi, also a bottle of wine is 300 Pesos, which is great compared to other restaurabts in Holbox, thanks again for a perfect evening! WE WILL BE BACK! Save our spot please! Anke und Lars - Since inside Smartphone Modus we cannot click on the single service and food qualiry ratings - IT IS 5 for sure!

Me and my boyfriend went to El Sushi twice on our trip to Holbox - including on our last night. The sushi is so fresh, we had the tuna sashimi twice, different maki rolls which were incredibly tasty - we had the salmon, beef, prawn tempura and spicy philly. The salmon nigiri was amazing. Honestly, the best sushi we've ever had - we've both said that we won't be going for sushi at home for a long time now because it just wont be as good!

The service was also great - our waiter didn't speak much English but was really polite, made sure we got what we'd ordered, was quick to bring our drinks etc.

The only down side was that on both occasions there was no white fish available, which limited our options, but we eat quite late, so I imagine they'd just run out of fresh fish from earlier in the day. The chef just made up equivalents to what we wanted with the fish that they had.

All so fresh, tasty, really nice location on a bustly road just off the main square and can't wait to go back!

You HAVE to go here if you are visiting Holbox and like sushi.

Nice little sushi place on the main strip of Holbox town. Nicely decorated with a breezy veranda and attentive service.
The sushi was good, had nigiri, gunkan and sakana rolls. Salmon on nigiri should have a slightly thicker cut. Gunkan and rolls were very good, same with the home made lemonade. Compared to other sushi places I've visited in Mexico, not too expensive and good quality.

The brand new waiter was doing a good job. Sushi were good although we had to wait a long time and none arrived at the same time. Sashimi was very simple, just raw salmon. All in all it was a OK experience
