Highly recommend all sushi lovers getting their dose here. Craving the great sushi in Vancouver for 4 months, I finally ate at Nicksan. Very pleasantly surprised. The tuna tostada was delicious along with the sashimi salad, gyoza's and a roll (not sure which one). The fish is very fresh and the dishes are well prepared. Pricing was decent and you... More

The food and service in Nicksan were outstanding. We ordered several dishes and every single one was delicious. The best items were the lobster roll and tuna tostada. Just absolutely delicious. I also really enjoyed their cold premium sake. I live in San Francisco and we have many good Japanese restaurants here but Nicksan was so much better than any... More

I love this restaurant, the meal is always great, the prices are bit high but for the special evening out, the service and food are an excellent choice. If you are a local who lives in Puerto Vallarta, they also offer a discount card that I believe gives you an additional 20% off the meal, doesn't include beverages

Current promotion is a 5-course meal including drinks for $250 pesos. Consists of miso soup, crab salad, 2 appetizer plates (red snapper, spicy tuna), entree of fish and veggies, and your choice of national drinks. Drinks are unlimited until the entree is served. Service was prompt and friendly, and of course the food was top of the line.

I just ate there last month, it was my first time visiting, i received the menu and was highly disappointed that such a high quality place had zero pictures and no description of there rolls and dishes (some do, but very limited). I asked the waiter what he recommended, he immediately tried to tell me what to eat by saying... More

The food is so good, we keep coming back. But this time, the hostess and waiter had this attitude as if they were doing us a favor by letting us eat their food, so rude! The restaurant would have been completely empty if it hadn't been for us, and the waiter took so long to come back, we almost left... More

Visited the newer NVA location after enjoying the Cabo sites. This restaurant did not disappoint. Superbly fresh fish with innovative preparations make Nicksan world class.

A nice restaurant, only had sashimis and sushi rolls, and it was very good. Fresh ingredients, nice combinatons of flavors and textures, good portions, and the right sake for it. The staff is friendly and service in time.
