Great spot. Best sushi. Better than sushi at one and only. Also their lobster, fish in miso and green tea pasta are three incredible dishes ! Great spot with great people must try
Dear Mr. Chris, thank you for your great review and for choosing our Japanese-Mexican cuisine to celebrate your anniversary. We are commited to exceed our clients expectations and your comments motivate us deeply. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely Nicksan Team
Elegant and innovative, starting with the booth for Covid sanitizing that you step into! The food was Japanese with a Mexican flair, all very good. The service was attentive but not hovering. A great place for dinner!
The food was absolutely amazing! We tried several different appetizers and dishes and everything was delicious!! I can’t say enough about how good the food is here. The service was great too.
We appreciate the time you took to write this amazing review about your experience in our restaurant, thank you so much! Our unique Nicksan Style surprises every client with extraordinary flavors and textures.
La comida bajó mucho la calidad y variedad. Había gran cantidad de productos faltantes y el precio fue desproporcionado. El lugar es estéticamente feo
Agradecemos tus comentarios, lamentamos que tu experiencia no haya cumplido con tus expectativas.
We hope you had a wonderful time in your special celebration. Thank you for choosing Nicksan! Please let us know more about your experience, what was your favorite moment during your visit?

Thank you so much for your review! We are happy to read your comments about your special celebration at our restaurant.
Another amazing evening and meal at Nick-san, my 3rd visit. The sushi/sashimi is tremendous. The outdoor ambiance is wonderful. The sautéed lobster tail was stunning!!
Thank you so much for this review! Our Nicksan Classics created by Chef Angel Carbajal are here to surprise you on every visit, thanks again for your visit and wonderful review.
Superb Sushi. Great atmosphere. A must if your in Cabo
Thank you for choosing us as your must-visit restaurants in Los Cabos, please let us know what was your favorite dish from our unique Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine.
The place was having a very very noisy rock band inside, which was impossible to tolerate. We had to sit outside. The place was not surprising at all, the ambience was much less than expected, another place that should be nicer was with direct sun and no shadow so we just sit in the front of the restaurant. Nothing impressive. The sushi was absolutely amazing, this is the only reason we would give this place another chance, but the noise was incredibly loud (really impossible) the ambience was the regular table of a shopping mall, nothing special. The service was good.
Thank you for your review Matias, we always effort to create the best experience for every guest. We'll keep it mind your comments. We invite you to visit our second location in Los Cabos, located in Cabo San Lucas downtown, where you can experience another atmosphere and go beyond sushi and try more of our delicious Nicksan Classics.
I had read about this place, opted to try the one in Palmilla - it was fine, but not fabulous. The place was almost empty (4:30 PM), but it took a while to get any service and/or attention. There were good suggestions and the day’s special and 2 rolls were delicious, but the selection of nigiri sushi was mediocre as to quality and freshness.
There was an overall sense of indifference with spurts of attention, bit at all what we have normally experience in San Jose del Cabo.
Thank you so much for your visit, our staff efforts every day on creating the best experience possible for every visitor, we are sorry you had this unusual experience in our restaurant. We will make a follow up of your review with our management. Thanks again for letting us know your comments.
Great food and atmosphere!
Thank you so much for this amazing review! We love to create amazing experiences into everlasting memories. What was your favorite dish from our menu? Please let us know your comments.
Everything they recommended was delicious. The sashimi serranito was to die for, lobster roll was out of this world. Would get those again. Also the best tuna tostada we've had in Cabo in comparison to the others. Not an ounce of soy sauce needed as each dish was exploding with it's own flavor. Service was impeccable. Only recommendation would be to have more options for wine by the glass.
Thank you so much for your review Angela, we are happy to read that our special recommendations surprised your senses. We effort to surprise every guest with our unique Nicksan Style cuisine. We will follow your suggestions, thank you so much.
The sushi.... oh my lord, was it sooo good. Put this on your list of “must go to” the next time you’re in Cabo!
Thank you so much for letting us be part of your Must Go To restaurants in Los Cabos, our Nicksan Style is a food experience that you have to live during your days in our beautiful paradise.
Great place to eat! We go there every single time we go to Cabo! The one in San Juan and Cabo are amazing
Thank you for this nice review! It's always good to see you. Please let us know what's your favorite dish from our menu, we would love to hear your special recommendations for other travelers.
Great food! We used to go to Agua for nice dinner out in Cabo, but the food here is just as good, if not better, and far more reasonable price wise!
Thank you so much for this amazing review Tracy, it was nice to see you and welcome you to our restaurant. We are glad we exceeded your expectations with our Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine, please let us know what was your favorite dish from our menu.
Food and service was great Nick San is a high end restaurant this location is not that great, next to highway.
I will return no doubt!
Thank you for this great review, we love to exceed every visitor's expectations. Thanks to our 25 years, Nicksan now is the place to find fresh and innovative dishes with two locations in Los Cabos. We invite you to visit our second location in Cabo San Lucas downtown so you can enjoy a totally new and modern atmosphere. We hope to see you soon.
Deberían prestar más atención a sus clientes y la comida rica

This was a great place for our family NYE celebration. Service was fantastic and the food outstanding. Thanks to the chefs and staff. Well done!
Thank you for choosing us to celebrate NYE with us! Our exquisite Japanese-Mexican fusion menu is a delicious combination of both cultures surprising guests with every dish. We hope to see you back again this year!
So, when I booked this I thought I was booking the Japanese/Mexican restaurant located in the beautiful One and Only Palmilla. Turns out it wasn’t. This restaurant is actually located just outside the Palmilla in a strip mall. After getting over our initial disappointment we embraced the adventure. The food was actually great but the place does not have the best ambiance. It was crowded and the service was fine but would not go back simply because there are so many other options in Cabo with better views, atmosphere and service. Hence the four star review. (By the way, the name of the restaurant I thought I was booking is Suviche.)
Thank you for your review, Alison, our restaurant was an award-winning last year as Best Sushi in Los Cabos by InMexico Magazine, thanks to our special Japanese-Mexican fusion menu. We invite you to visit our second location where you can enjoy a different atmosphere in downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Great food - we were very
Thank you for this great review and scores. Let us know your comments about our menu, we will love to know what was your favorite dish.
Excelente servicio, buena comida, falta terraza o lugar para fumadores y mas ambientes. No inspira a quedarse para trago y sobremesa.
Buena recepción, excelente calidad de productos y atención puntual, no exageradamente amable pero cumplen con el propósito.
Precios adecuados al lugar y calidad 😀☝️
Gracias por tomarte el tiempo para escribir esta increíble reseña, ¡gracias! Te invitamos a disfrutar nuestra experiencia Omakase en tu próxima visita, dando la libertad a nuestro chef de crear platos únicos para ti, esperamos volver a verte pronto.
Cocktails- not good
Food was fair
Won’t be back
Thank you for your visit, What type of cocktails did you try from our menu? We would love to know your comments to improve our menus and service. We will pass your comments to the managers in charge.
Service was terrible we had to ask for water then for menus. We had to ask for cocktail and wine order. No one took our order for 25 minutes. When the food came out the presentation was awful and the taste was worse. I wouldn’t recommend this spot to anyone
We are sorry to read your experience wasn't as you expect it, this is an unusual experience in our restaurant. Did you remember the name of your waiter? This will help us improve our service and create better experiences for all of our guests.
No one was there and we could see why. The sushi was just ok and very expensive
Thank you for your visit and for choosing to celebrate a special date with us, we love to exceed every guest expectations! We will love to know more about your experience.
We were the only ones there for dinner. Stayed for 2 hours and no one else walked in. Good was so so, really not great.
Thank you for your review. We will like to review your experience in order to improve our service. Could you be more specific about your experience in our restaurant? Sincerely, Ángel Carbajal
Buena atención y excelente comida
I have been dining at Nick-San for years and have never been disappointed. The service is always outstanding and the fish is usually perfect. Unfortunately this last experience wasn’t great. The staff were perfect but the food we ordered was not good. We ordered the cilantro appetizer (blanking on the actual name) and the fish they used was not good. It was mushy and tasteless. Almost difficult to eat. The tostadas has such a strong onion taste it overpowered the whole dish. We also ordered the fish medallion in a miso sauce. It had good flavor but was mushy. That was my fiancé’s main dish and he ended up getting sick we deduce from that dish because everything else we shared. Super dissatisfied.. maybe it was just an off day as I said before it’s usually one of the best places to get raw fish dishes!
Thank you for your review, this is an unusual situation in our restaurant. We are always focused on maintaining a high standard on our ingredients, we will send your comments to our managers, thank you.
We went to have dinner after 3 years.
That was very good!!
Good ambiance, but we went on an off night fairly late and were one of the few customers there. The menu could use some tweaking. Had little flow/organization. The food was decent. The lobster roll was great. The service was fine
We have been dining here for many years. This is a very special restaurant. The food and service are always superb, with many "one of a kind " dishes. We have often taken visitors from New York here for dinner. Their reaction is invariably that the cuisine rivals the very best Japanese restaurants in New York, extremely high praise, with which we wholeheartedly agree.
The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I was not expecting the level of service I received. Everything was great!
We have been coming to Cabos annually and keep saying we want to try Nicksan. We were very disappointed with our experience. You would assume that when servers are clearing full plates of food, they would ask if everything was to our liking. Not so even though we also ordered a $150 usd bottle of sake. Food was mediocre at best. Had a much better seafood experience down the road since then.
Overall, we were very impressed with the creativity and quality of the fish. The tuna, by far, is the best choice… The other local fish yellowtail, Seabass, and some other ones I have never eaten before we're OK but the tuna was exceptional… Super great place.
Nick San has been around for decades..beginning in Cabo San Lucas. It is a wonderful fusion of Spanish and Japanese cuisine. The owner, Angel, and his 11 brothers fish every day from their own boats...so you know the fish is fresh...just hours old. The flavors created are spectacular! You will not be disappointed!
Great place - little pricey
They did not have our reservation but found a place for us. Our original service was very poor until we spoke up and they couldn't have been more attentive. We love the food at Nik San's. The fish is fresh, the dishes are served slowly, the condiments are generous (if you ask for more), presentation is lovely.
The food came out in reverse order. Sushi first, then appetizers/salads. The sushi rice tasted like the kind you might get in a grocery store that sells sushi. Hard packed and didn't taste fresh. The sashimi did not taste sushi grade. I would not return again.
The service is over the top! And food is ALWAYS delicious! We go to Nicksan every time we are in Cabo and we come about twice a year. Needless to say its the best sushi in the area and definitely a fun place to spend an evening!
