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!

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.

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

sushi is fine, but not the best noodles with shrimps and coconut .- too sweet plus the noodles are just ramen noodles, it does not really taste like shrimp, just sugar noodles with chicken.- too much cabbage it is not a must in Holbox, go to las Panchas if you really want something good!

Excellent variety and some interesting combinations that we hadn't experienced before. Ingredients all tasted fresh and we knew about cream cheese being fairly standard in Mexican sushi so weren't surprised or disappointed. The service was also excellent and very attentive. All in all, an enjoyable evening watching life go by on the street and eating great fresh sushi!

Went here mostly for the hubby who likes sushi. Everything looked so pretty that I had to try. It was fantastic. Fresh, flavourful, fantastic. Great service too. My fav meal on the island. It's upstairs so don't miss it. Will definitely go back.

Hard to believe but true: one of the best sushi in Mexico and possibly beyond lives on this small island! A revelation :-)

Was not keen on this restaurant and I felt sick after, not sure if it was the sushi or me... so dont really want to give them a bad review. Also Sushi in Mexico is not the same as we are used to in the States and lacks some of the pizazz with special rolls etc... Will not go back... More

Really enjoyed our meal here, the maki we ordered were delicious, as was the seaweed salad. Service was very friendly and it was nice to sit and look down at the street below. A nice surprise on Holbox.
