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!

Best sushi ever!

This was one of our favorite meals in Holbox. I know sushi is an unlikely choice in Mexico, but try this place out! Much of the fish was local and had been caught earlier that day. Delicious! Also, you can't beat the view at sunset.

Our Spanish is not as good as you think so also in our fault, we picked two rolls with a fish that we are not eating. When the food arrived, we asked the waiter... More

The service is great, the food is fine, the prices are OK; located near the central plaza is a great option to have something different than seafood.

We went to the sushi place for a drink and appetizer - the food and atmosphere were fantastic! We only ordered nigiri but the faces of the other patrons made it clear that everything on the menu is fresh and fabulous. We loved it and would definitely return!

Hard to pronounce correctly but Great Island to visit. Small Fishing Island so as expected Outstanding Seefood Restaurants and for Sushi this is the best on the Island. It offers all the popular Rolls and including Calamari, octopus and Shrimp rolls and a few not normally found in Sushi Rest. Be preparaed to experience a somewhat primitive lifestyle here, streets...

We were wowed by the sushi we tried, so much so we came back twice. The waiter was very attentive and spoke excellent English. He helped us make our choices with excellent recommendations. The setting was nice, overlooking the street, great for people watching and the prices were very reasonable. Sakuna is a must to try as well as the... More

Go there! Had 2 great rolls, can't remember the names of both -- one was called two tuna and the other was a spicy one with siracha. Also had the edamame appetizer which had a spicy salt sprinkled on top - interesting and fun. you won't be disappointed. takes Visa
