We stopped here our first night for a nice dinner right out on the sandy street --- good drinks and great sushi -- my wife also bought a nice hand made necklace from the bartender after complementing the server on her necklace

Overlooking the quaint island village of Isla Holbox, El Sushi is a refreshing alternative to Mexican food for every meal! Amazing waiter Arturo gives it that personal touch by making you feel warmly welcomed and goes above and beyond your average restaurant experience. Make sure to try the delicious seaweed salad that comes in a beautiful nautilus shell dish. The... More

We visited on a whim for dinner with two children and my husband. We enjoyed some wine, a caiprinhia (my husband's favorite) and a game of Jenga before dinner arrived. The noodles were amazing (so much so that we ordered a second batch to bring home to the hotel). The mango sushi, spicy philly were also good rolls. We don't... More

the ramen soup was really delicious with noodles and some veggies in it (zucchinis and carrots). and what really amazed us was the dessert - pecan pie. i would recommend this place to all sushi and non-sushi lovers. it's located on the first floor which has no walls around it so you have a good view of the central square...

Holbox comes with a reputation for great seafood so what better place to sample it than at a Japanese sushi restaurant. Unfortunately, this place really missed the mark for me. Firstly, I would have liked to try a sashimi platter with different types of fish but that wasn't on the menu. You could only buy a dish of sashimi comprising... More

First of all I want to thank you for your opinion as it will make as improve. El sushi de Holbox is a restaurant that mixes different types of cuisines such as Japanese, Mexican and a little from Peru. Most of our rolls have cream cheese, but we are very flexible, and if someone tell us of an ingredient that... More

The fancy for some sushi was so great for my wife we had to have lunch here. The food is displayed like a picture and we were finding it hard to choose. The rolls were fresh and the ramen soup was great. Very clean and well done. Nice change on vacation.

I ordered a ramen soup which was fresh made at the moment. All was clean and delicious. It's also a nice place in a nice plaza.

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.

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!
