...by a long shot. In 14 days we ate at many of the local restaurants in Los Cabos, but this was our hands-down favorite. We love sushi, and especially sashimi. At most sushi restaurants you get plain and simple sashimi, which is great. At Nik-San they elevate sashimi with various special preparations and sauces. The fish was impeccably fresh and... More

My husband is a self-professed sushi expert and it's his go-to wherever he is in the world. At the end of the meal, he proclaimed this in his top 2! The gyoza, lobster roll, spicy tuna were amazing. Do not miss Nick San!!

Nick-San is the very best that there is as far as Japanese and sushi restaurants go in Los Cabos.... There just is nothing better! Artistic presentation, attentive service, great ambience and the freshest most delicious fare ever! It is pricey but well worth it.... The very best quality of tuna and other fresh fish.... I have been here a few... More

do you like high end sushi? Then, you better eat here!! Amazing! Delicious! Spot on service! It's not cheap but hell you are on vacation!!! I was a little worried when we first arrived because it was empty but half way through our meal the place was packed. It's definitely a favorite with the pallmila crowd - I can see... More

My wife and I decided to treat a couple of friends to dinner and we chose a place close to where they lived, Nicksans. The food was good, the service OK but the price was insane. This food is NOT worth the price and I highly doubt we'll ever return. I don't usually write reviews but this place irked me

This place provided the freshest sushi. The fish was very tender and just melted in my mouth I highly recommend this place for dinner because the service was great and the sushi was excellent.

I really enjoyed my last visit to the restaurant. It was the best sushi I had in a long time. I love their innovative drinks too. It is a very classy and fresh atmosphere. The waiters are very polite and focused on details. We will come back soon!

After working our way through a reservation mix-up, we were eventually seated. Our waiter was nice and helpful, but seemed to be overworked. (The recent hurricane has made it tough to gauge traffic I imagine, creating staffing challenges.) There were a couple unique menu items, but none that were terribly memorable. Good to be able to get sushi in Cabo... More
