Limited wine list and extremely small portions, smaller than its peers and pricey
There were too many flies everywhere. We couldn’t eat one bite without shooing them away. It was also very hot. It felt like there was no AC. There was one dish on a tostada that was decent but all of the sushis we ordered were warm and fishy. Tempura shrimp was incorrectly breaded not tempura style but more like a home version - it did however taste decent. This place is a sad attempt at trying to be hip and cool and missing very badly.

Jóvenes de 16 años asaltadas por meseros llevándoles los platos “especiales” de 600 pesos... mismos que resultaron en una intoxicación de dos dias para los asistentes ...
La seguridad de nuestros clientes es un aspecto primordial para nuestro equipo y hemos estado comprometidos con ello por más de 20 años en Los Cabos. Esperamos poder contar con su contacto y dar seguimiento a esta terrible situación.
Food was fresh and delicious I would highly reccommend dining here 1

Comida básica sin mucho esplendor. Ingredientes adecuados, pero no híper frescos.
Gracias por visitarnos y por compartir su experiencia Nicksan . Lamentemos que haya tenido una mala experiencia, ya que por más de dos décadas nos hemos esforzado por brindar a nuestros comensales platillos frescos e innovadores, combinando los principios de la cocina japonesa con los sabores de México, en lo que ya se conoce como cocina estilo Nicksan. Esperamos que nos de una segunda oportunidad en el futuro para que pueda conocer el estilo auténtico que nos caracteriza. ¡Buen día!
Excelente atención, los platillos muy frescos y deliciosos
Muchísimas gracias por compartir tu experiencia Nicksan con nosotros. Nos alegra saber que disfrutaste de nuestros platillos que fusionan lo mejor de Japón y México para brindarte sabores originales y deliciosos. ¡Esperamos volver a darte la bienvenida muy pronto!
The restaurant was perfect. Very chill atmosphere, attentive service, and great food!
Thank you for this fantastic review, Chris! We always aim to deliver a beyond sushi experience with our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu, and reading this encourages us to continue improving. We'll try to surprise you even more next time.
Perhaps the best sushi in the area. Very creative menu for fresh sashimi seafood. The staff were all very attentive and helpful with selections. The courtyard setting is a plus.
Thank you for sharing your Nicksan experience with us; we were blown away by your positive words, and we appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review! We are happy to see you enjoyed our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu and our location. We will love to welcome you again soon so you can keep discovering our tasty Nicksan Originals.
Excellent and innovated
Thank you for your review, Steven! We are glad to see you enjoyed our Nicksan Originals. We invite you to try our Omakase experience: it gives our chef the freedom to create unique dishes for you. Hope to see you again soon!
The food and service are the best in Cabo. We come here several times each time we are u town. Only criticism would be that the outside patio, while beautiful, is noisy due to the proximity of the road. Not a reason to avoid the restaurant, just an observation. We highly recommend this location!
Thank you for your kind comments, Jody! We love to see you coming back to enjoy our Nicksan Originals. Our Japanese-Mexican menu will always be ready to delight your palate and surprise you through every dish.
The entire meal was a bit disappointing. I have had SO many friends rave about how amazing Nick San is and our experience was mediocre. If you are going to Nick-San, go to the other one, that's the one I hear has been exceptional.
The food was amazing, and the service was even better!!
Thank you for sharing your Nicksan experience with us! We loved reading your feedback about your visit and our menu, our staff efforts themselves every day to create amazing memories for every foodie. Hope to see you again soon!
Amazing meal as always...our first time at the Pamilla location and it didn't disappoint! We LOVE Nick-San!
We love reading reviews like yours, Chrissie. Thank you so much for choosing Nicksan to indulge your palate and give you a "Beyond Sushi" experience. It will be always a pleasure to welcome you at any Nicksan restaurant you decide to visit. We will love to see you back soon!
Nos encantó el
Servicio. Amable, rápido
Muchas gracias por su comentario. A diario nos esforzamos porbrindar una experiencia más allá del sushi con nuestra fusión japonesa-mexicana.
Regular sushi, just expensive. Didn’t like the fish gyosas. Tuna toasts were good.
We appreciate you took the time to write this review and help us to improve: thank you, Sam! We are glad you liked tuna toasts. Maybe next time you would like to try our Omakase experience: it gives our chef the freedom to create unique dishes for you to have an authentic Nicksan experience. Have a nice day!
Nil-San never disappoints!! Love the food, love the service, and love the convenience!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review. We love reading how much you enjoyed our Beyond Sushi Experience. Next time, let us pamper with our Omakase experience with the chef specials.
Un restaurante con una excelente comida. Es un poco elevado el precio pero para hacer el gasto de vez en cuando vale la pena.
Muchas gracias por su comentario, ponemos especial dedicación en la calidad de nuestros ingredientes, la presentación de nuestros platillos y el servicio que brindamos. Nos encantará volver a consentirlos en su siguiente visita.
Food is outstanding. Ambiance a little sterile. Weird disinfect chamber to pass through.
Thank you for your visit, Frank. We are glad to know you love our Japanese-Mexican fusion menu. We love to see you coming back and discovering new flavors.
An excellent dinner. Very safety oriented with COVID. Exceptional food and service. Wine list a little pricey is my only complaint.
Thank you for your review, Steven, we really appreciate the time you took to review our restaurant, every guest's safety is our main priority. Please let us know what was your favorite dish from our menu.
Muy buena atención, la comida muy fresca y el preparado espectacular
Ricardo, muchas gracias por esta reseña. Nos complace saber que nuestrs fusión Japonesa-Mexicana y el servicio hayan estado a la altura de tus expectativas. Esperamos tener el placer de atenderte de nuevo muy pronto.
The service was excellent as usual. The food was fresh and beautifully plated. It is not a low cost restaurant rant but you get good value for your money. Also, they are very consistent. The food is always delicious.
Thank you very much Larry, adding value to our clients gastronomic experience and going beyond their expectations drive everything we do at Nicksan. Hope to see you again soon.
Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed by Nick-San as we had high expectations coming in. From the start, service was poor. It took a while for a waiter to come for our drink orders and when he did come with our hot tea it was cold. We had to send the teas back twice before they brought it back hot. We finally put in our food orders only for the mains to come before the appetizers. For example the miso soup was one of the last things to come out. The food that we did receive (before we cancelled a few items for taking way to long) was not fresh. The raw fish tasted chewy and had a strong scent as if it had been cut and out for days. My dad ended up feeling extremely sick later that night. In addition to the poor service and awful food, the ambiance is quite strange. Think early 2000's decor with strange purple lighting, and blue suede chairs. We had high hopes for Nick-San and were shocked by our experience.
Hello, we appreciate your helpful and constructive criticism, which will help our service become better in the future and we hope you return soon!
Combined good food, drinks and good service makes this place special
Thank you so much for your review, Lola. Going beyond our clients expectations is Nicksan's core goal, let us surprise you next time with an Omakase experience.
Hands down, the best sushi rolls ever. We went with the waiter’s recommendation for sushi roll that was not on the menu but very popular. Delicious! Also the Tuna Tostado appetizer and Sashimi salad are outstanding. And the Cucumber cocktail has now become our favorite spirited beverage. We look forward to returning while still in town. Nik-San is a dinner must while in Los Cabos.
Excellent food and service. I was surprised to see a great variety of Sushi and Sashimi . Good stuff.
Thank you so much Denis, exceeding our guest expectation is what we do best! We hope you had enjoyed a wide selection of our Nicksan Classics, what was your favorite dish during your visit?
Delicious and high quality fish! Our family loved it. Friendly service.
Thank you for your review! We love to read this kind of story, our Japanese-Mexican fusion surprise every foodie during their visit. What was your favorite dish from our menu?
The best sushi I have ever had in Cabo! Every roll, sashimi, and fish was very fresh and tasty! The infused Mexican flare added to each dish made it so good that you didn’t even need soy sauce! I highly recommend going to Nick San over any other sushi restaurant!
We appreciate your amazing review, thank you so much, Denise. Our unique Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine created by Chef Angel Carbajal surprise ever guest with every dish. We hope to see you again!
