Pretty good food but a bit light on the quantity.

The server was a bit stiff. Did not explain the long list of items from which we were to order with our promotional coupon. When prompted to do so, he knew each one but was a bit sing song with his descriptions. He was not a bad server but never connected with us. Bottom line, we can eat this... read more

Went to Nicksan last week. We have a place in PV, have for years. Go there regularly. Never had worse service than this place! Have you ever gone to a restaurant where whenever the waiter knows you want him, meets your eye,mother quickly looks away then walks the other direction. This is that place. Every server in the house, and... More

Excellent service and outstanding quality of food. Everyone is so accommodating and creative with anything you might need or fancy. My family and I visit this restaurant as often as possible and it never disappoints! Looking at the menu is unnecessary as all waiters provide great suggestions that you never regret!

The food was good, but overpriced. We ate outside by the fountain as the inside looked plain. The waiter was friendly and courteous. If you are in the hotel, it's good sushi close by. I wouldn't drive there from PV again.

The food we had was delicious -- but I was still hungry at the end of the meal! We ate inside where there were no tablecloths and more of a sports bar atmosphere than outside by the fountain. Service was terrific -- but, folks, this is Mexico --so $92US for two appetizers, two "main course" dishes (without any rice, bread... More

Very good food but very pricy for Mexico. If you are used to high prices then this won't bother you. I think our bill for a modest meal for two with Saki was $75.00 USD. The ambience there was the among the best we have had in Mexico. Great for a special dinner.

The food we found lacking. The poor server looked nervous. The food was just okay, we would not go back. But we sat outside, which was nice.

Travelling to Nuevo for the last 16 years and Nicksan is a must every time for my family since it's opening a few years back. We usually have an early dinner with kids here at least 2 times during our stay. Absolutely love the teriyaki chicken, the soup is to die for. All around a great eating experience.
