El Sushi de Holbox is the best asiatic restaurant in the Island. Our starter, fresh tuna tiradito won the first price on the holbox gastronomic awards. The terrace has a wonderful atmosphere as it is hidden from the noise of the street. Come and enjoy of our chefs rolls as sakana roll, niguiris or just a delicious margarita!

Great sushi with a local twist

We tried 6 different rolls and the were all fantastic. They manage to do a crossover thing, incorporating Mexican flavors in this tradition. The result is unexpected in a good way. Though it might sound strange to go to a sushi place on Isla Holbox... don't miss this place.

Best restaurant on Holbox. We went there 3 times during our week on the island and the food never disappointed. Super fresh sushi and local sashimi dishes, great cocktails and good and friendly service. Highly recommended!

We spent 2 weeks again in Holbox, the 2nd year. This place was a real highlight. So different to the other places in town, the food was really great and the staff were very helpful.

We were looking forward to this meal as we had been told that it was sushi with a Mexican twist... but it didn't really deliver! My sushi was ok, but certainly nothing worth returning for.. My partners chicken noodles were pretty disgusting, bland at best... The guy serving was friendly but the service was very slow considering we were the... More

Sadly the food here was very average. The tempura was very heavy and the rice very oily. My partner and I left disappointed.

Although we love Mexican food, we were feeling like something else during our trip. Since this restaurant was highly recommended on Tripadvisor, we thought we gave it a shot. And no regret! We were the only guests in the beginning and had a great spot overlooking the Main Street. We ordered a drink and played some games. We ordered different... More

Nothing to write home about. The sushi was okay, the service was okay, the drinks were good but they didn't have our first choice on the menu. The location was nice overlooking the main street.

Came here for my Bday and really enjoyed it! Loved the banana sushi, which was a unique spin on a traditional roll. The "kushiagues" are really good. They look kind of like corn dogs, with a fried outer shell and different fillings. We had the shrimp and cheese one, which comes with a type of ponzu sauce. The lobster roll... More

We had dinner here, it was delicious, very fresh and well priced. We had the tuna sashimi, Sakura roll, tuna roll and lobster roll. We tried both this restaurant and Pura Vida (the other sushi restaurant in town) while in Holbox. I really like sushi with fresh ingredients and raw fish (rather than cooked shrimp, imitation crab, cream cheese, etc),... More
