In four days of being on Holbox we have eaten here 2 nights . . . that is because, while the selection of sushi is small, it is So Fresh and So Delicious - i keep ordering extra pieces. Other offerings are also worthy - my pal had a lightly seared tuna rolled in sesame seeds and another time the... More

We visited El Sushi de Holbox twice during our stay in the island, both times we were impressed with the quality and flavor of the food we ordered. You definitely need to try the "Sanaka Roll" We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Holbox!

Great atmosphere and the coldest beer on the island. The food was delicious, but it was so well displayed I didn't want to eat it. Seriously, I took pictures of every dish.

I went here with a friend during our last night on the island and it was the perfect way to end our trip. The food completely outdid our expectations, as we weren't entirely sure what to expect from a Mexican sushi bar. The seaweed salad was a delicious starter, and the tuna roll was made-to-order and wonderfully fresh. The ambiance... More

We had a chance to visit this cozy restaurant during our visit and enjoy their specialty, they offer a 2 x 1 promotion in Caipiriñas and it's conveniently located a few steps from the main square inside El Pueblito, a unique shopping mall in Holbox. Prices are very reasonable =)

I asked what they recommended, and was told the 'Mango Roll'. It was crab, avocado, mango and a mildly spicy sauce. It was wonderful on its own, but when I dipped it in soy sauce it was incredible! I was drinking Sauvignon Blanc and it paired nicely! The atmosphere and music were very nice, and as it is on the... More

On the second floor of the "big city mall" you wil find El Sushi, a small outside restaurant on a balcony. Very friendly staff welcomes you. We ordered regular sushi and the Mango roll (not on the menu, chef's special). All of the sushi was made when ordered, and was very fresh! The Mango roll is highly recommended!! Delicious! Also...

While strolling through town for a place to eat, we came across this little restaurant in the “mall” located across from the movie theater on the second level and thought “fantastic sushi in a fish mecca”. Sadly we were disappointed and if you are a sushi lover like we are, then you will most likely be disappointed too. The fish... More

The sushi was amazing. One of our best dinners on Holbox when you are needing your sushi fix. Good value.

This place gets an "A" for effort, but why go to Holbox for Japanese fare? Of course it's not authentic, and beware the packets of ramen viewable behind the bar. But the staff is exceedingly friendly, and who can blame them for their efforts at some cosmopolitan flare. For a genuine and affordable meal that even the locals enjoy, try... More
