Good sushi was unexpected in Cabo so I was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive (Covid occupancy, mind you) and they have this ozone walk through chamber that made you feel like they were taking it seriously. It was also my birthday and their birthday treat is pretty fun! All indoor seating though! We (4 of us) enjoyed it very much.
Sunny, thank you so much for your review. We're glad to hear that we went beyond your expectations with our Japanese Mexican fusion. We have outdoor sittings at The Shoppes at Palmilla location, we invite you to try it next time you are in Los Cabos. Nicksan Team
Todo lo que llevaron a la mesa estuvo delicioso.
¡Muchas gracias por tu comentario! Esperamos tu experiencia haya superado tus expectativas. Esperamos volver a verte pronto.
Excelente servicio y calidad de los alimentos
We had a fantastic time. Ended up going there two times on our vacation because their food was so fantastic. Fresh fish, very creative dishes, super nice staff and service. We love to both of our sushi chefs. Planning on going back next month or more back down in Cabo. Also this was during Covid and felt very safe at the restaurant as all practice safe service. Thank you and see you next time.
Hi Doug & Tracy Thanks a lot for your review. We look forward to welcome you back and go beyond your expectations with the enhanced Nicksan originals. See you next time! Argelia
Great sushi and close to the marina. We went with our kids and my parents and we all split 10 rolls and they were delicious. Service was a little slow but they were also very busy. We will for sure be going back.
Hi Kari Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear your service was slow, when you all get back we'll try our best to give you a faster service. See you next time! Nicksan Team
Absolutely amazing food and service!
Thank you so much for this review! Please let us know your favorite dishes from our menu during your visit.
Best sushi, servers are amazing!!
Food is overrated; can’t recommend this restaurant to future guests.
The food was amazing and the service from Luis went above and beyond - highly recommend!
Meh, very average sushi
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant, we invite you to try more than sushi from our menu focus on unique Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine. We assure you we will surprise you, hope to see you back again soon.
Wonderful team of chiefs and service
Best sushi in the world
Been here every year for many years.
Staff not that attuned to patrons requests.
Sad to see this place less award of customer service
Outstanding sushi - a seat at the sushi bar and Edie as your sushi chef for an evening of “chef’s choice” makes for a great evening. Highly recommend!
Amazing food, excellent service! We go here every year when we come to Cabo. Highly recommend!
It's always good to see you Amy, thank you for letting us be part of your experience during your time in Los Cabos, we invite you to try our cocktails along with our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu, we are performing new cocktails into our menus to enhance your experience.
We let our waiter just start bringing dishes that he or the chef recommended. Our party of six shared each course. Every dish was fantastic with flavors that complemented and built on the prior course.
Hi Tom, thank you for this great review, it nice to read you enjoyed the Omakase Experience where our chefs surprised you in each course with new flavors and creative combinations. We invite you to visit our second location Nicksan Palmilla, to discover a different side of Nicksan with a completely different atmosphere.
Visiting from florida, we’d heard they were the best and they are!!!! Amazing, creative and nice portions for our table of 6. Actually the food was better than Nobu- but not the atmosphere or price.
Thank you for this review Richard, our menu focuses on an original fusion of Japanese-Mexican cuisine, and last year we were award as Restaurant of the Year in the City on Culinary Awards. We invite you to visit our second location, Nicksan Palmilla, we will exceed your expectations!
Sadly not at all what we were expecting...lots of fried items, nothing spectacular. We were shockedy
Thank you for your review, it good to read your comments about our restaurant. Our menu is focused on a unique Japanese-Mexican cuisine created by Chef Angel Carbajal, we encourage you to give us another chance to surprise you with our Omasake Experience, where our chefs create special dishes according to your favorite ingredients.

Amazing! Paco was incredible. All top notch
Thank you for your review, our staff is fully committed to creating the most memorable experience for every guest. What was your favorite dish from our menu? We will love to read more about your experience.
We arrived at 12:30 pm and the restaurant was empty. Other customers were arriving as we were leaving, so perhaps we were early for lunch. It was also very warm as if the air was not on. We asked our server to turn on the air and he did, but it took a while to cool off the dining area. The food was fresh but not spectacular. Would not recommend.
Thank you so much for your review, we will send your comments to our managers and will take your feedback to improve every visitor's experience. We focus on creating the best culinary experience with our unique Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine.
We have been coming to Nik San for 15 years. Both to their downtown location and their Palmilla location whenever we are in Cabo. It is the best of the best of the best. It never disappoints. It is stupendous.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this amazing review, we appreciate to be part of your travel experience when visiting Los Cabos, next time we encourege you to try our Omakase experience, giving our chef to opportunity to surprise you with unique creations during your visit.
My girlfriend has has soy and gluten issues.
Eddie made our food and we told him to surprise us.
Best sushi experience she has ever had.
Reading this review makes us super excited, thank you Steve. Eddie and the complete staff are always foces on create the most memorable experience for every guest, according their food restrictions and preferences. Thank you for visiting us. What was your favorite dish during your visit?
Beautiful restaurant, beautiful presentation. We felt there was not as big of a selection as we are used to and that the selections we had tasted the same. Chefs left sliding doors at sushi refrigerated bar open throughout the dinner hour which surprised me cause I’m used to (and prefer) the nutty crisp flavor of sushi properly chilled. There appeared to be a lot of dishes not on the menu that we had no knowledge about but probably would have improved our experience.
Lastly, waitstaff were abundant and helpful but went too far in being in our faces and refilling water glass every time I had a sip.
Thank you for your comments, we will review it with our staff on floor. We invite you to give us another chance to surprise you with our unique menu, next time we recommened to ask for the Omakase experience, giving our chef the opportunity to make amazing creations just for you and try nre things everytime.
Another great meal was had as we ring in 2020 and celebrate our 29th year of marriage. We love sitting at the bar so we can watch the preparations and chat with the chef as to what he is making and what to try!
Thank you for your visit Beal, it was nice to see you during the first days of the year! Thank you for choosing our restaurant to celebrate your anniversary, our best wishes to you and your beloved one. Let us know what was your favorite dish from our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu, we hope to see you back again soon.
My man Angel is expanding his historically great sushi restaurant, it will be great as in everything he does. Always look forward to his fresh catch that often he catches himself in the early morning,

Excellent place, the best sushi in town, I went to the original San Lucas location which is just by the marina. The fish is fresh, the service very good, beautiful crowd. It's not a bargain, but its worth it.
Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate your time and effort to let us know your experience. We have been established in Cabo San Lucas for 25 years and we keep surprising our guests during every visit.
Food was excellent as usual. Drink service was VERY slow for wine and mixed drinks
We appreciate your review, thank you so much it's nice to know you are a regular visitor and love our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu. We will make a follow up on this issue. Can you tell us the name of your waiter, it will help us to review the service experience.
Came for lunch - overrated and ate while they had technicians service the ac or
Lights with ladders in middle of restaurant. Fish did not feel
I would not recommend to my friends, family and clients
Thank you for your comments Florentius, we really appreciate it. Our restaurant is under reconstruction to create a new vibe and experience for all our guests. We will pass your comments to the managers in charge, we will love to recommend you to visit our other location Nick-San Palmilla with more stylish and refined vibes.

Been to this location several times & food is always great! Our server recommended a few rolls & both my husband & I enjoyed them. Service is fast, professional & friendly. So glad we were able to get a reservation through Open Table for that night. Highly recommend Nick-San to sushi lovers looking for creatively prepared high quality sushi & sashimi!
Thank you so much for taking the time on writing this amazing review Tom, we are glad to know that your experience was great, what was your favorite sashimi from our menu? Please let us know your comments.
Un sushi como ninguno ... Excelente sabor. Presentación. Todo perfecto. Wow
Gracias por tomarte el tiempo en escribir esta reseña, agradecemos tu comentario, es un gusto exceder las expectativas de nuestros clientes.
Always fresh and the best sushi anywhere. Service is fast and attentive, with servers with great suggestions
Thank you so much, Diana, it was nice to see you enjoying our unique Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine. Every day we create our sushi specials so anytime you visit will find something to surprise your senses. We hope to see you soon.
The food was excellent but they are in the middle of renovations so it felt a little tight between the tables.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this caused. We are bringing a new vibe to our restaurants in order to keep exceeding your expectations.
Food was amazing, probably the best meal we’ve had in Cabo so far! Portion sizes were great for the two of us and our server recommended some really good dishes! We will definitely be back before the end of our trip to Cabo!
Thank you so much for your visit, Katie! We are happy to know that we were part of your foodie experience in Los Cabos, we hope to see back again soon.
Great food, like really great...expensive (yet we still always go)...NOT fancy, almost too casual for me.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are glad to know your experience was great, our menu focuses on a unique Japanese-Mexican fusion keeping in mind to exceed your expectations on every visit. We hope to see you back again soon!
A bit pricey but good food..
We are glad to read that your experience was great, we create a one of a kind fusion of Japanese-Mexican cuisine that you can enjoy on every dish. Please let us know what was your favorite dish.
Under renovations in early Sept, but always a great meal.
Sorry for the inconvenience, we are preparing a new fresh design to improve every guest experience. Let us know more about your experience, what was your favorite dish?
We went here two years ago and the experience is quite different now. Very loud music and fish that is below average. Also, the seating configuration in the restaurant is quite tight so the waiters/customers have to squeeze by tables. The restaurant decor is quite dated and the obnoxious techno music is enough to give one a headache.
Thank you so much for your review Mike, we will send your comments to our managers and will take your feedback to improve our service. We are always focused on creating the best culinary experience for every guest.
A friend didn’t want sashimi but I asked him to give it a try - the rest is history - he loved it all!!! Thank you!
We are glad to read your experience was amazing, we love to have new customers and surprise them with our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu. We hope to see you again.
