Looking for a place where you can chat and spend and good time?; calm music invite you to relax and enjoy a good food beside its romantic fountain.

The service here was outstanding. We came on the off season, so of course we had everyone's attention. I was traveling with my vegan friend, and they were able to create us some excellent dishes, including the cucumber salad. Delicious sushi, and we found the portions to be good sized.

The tuna tostadas are a must. All the sushi was fresh. Will need to go back and try some other plates. Funny the staff recommends you not add any soy to alter their taste.

The location is very comfortable and our waiter Hector was a great help in selecting good meals. He was a fantastic waiter and the food he recommended was outstanding. The portions are very small, but sometimes you must take your time to chew good food. This was the case, for I spent almost two minutes chewing a piece of sashimi... More

This is a very nice restaurant but the prices are much to high for the place. This is not the most fancy place one could experience. It is considered a very good restaurant but in our opinion it could be much better

We have been fans of Nicksan for a few years now. The staff is great and the food is wonderful. Not a bargain meal if you enjoy good saki with your dinner, but the but is excellent. You don't get excellent for cheap. Tasting menu is a good choice if you are not familiar with Japanese food. The tuna tostada... More

My girlfriend and I went to Nicksan on a recent trip to Nuevo Vallarta. We are sushi enthusiasts and never thought we would find anything remotely appealing down in Mexico. We were wrong. Nicksan was good enough to warrant a return visit during the week. Great ambiance. Attentive service staff. The freshness of the sashimi was top notch. The sushi... More

We got the special 5 course meal for 299 pesos. It was great. Miso soup, fabulous salad (light) and 3 different choices of sushi. The place is not much on atmosphere, sitting along the road, but the food is fabulous. Our friends ordered several of the sushi rolls. They were also great. Nice wines and beverages accompany your choices
