“Poor Value”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2010

How to describe our dinner at Nick-San - Disappointing:(

Since seafood in Cabo is abundant and fresh and based on reviews and our love of Sushi and all Japanese food, we had high expectations for our evening however they were not met at this restaurant.
The ambiance of the restaurant was very good. It is very chic and nicely decorated with a very 'in-crowd' type of atmosphere. Nicest decor of any restaurant that we visited in Cabo. But I prefer good food over good decor and I would not say that our meals were anything other than mediocre.
The food was very expensive - $12.00 for a California Role and it was made with imitation crab! $20.00 for Mixed Tempura... I can get better quality at any Japanese restaurant anywhere and have never paid more than $10.00. Our Japanese companion ordered a meal (not sure what it was called) but he was VERY disappointed with it.
Service was dismal... after being seated for at least 15 minutes, we had to ask for menus... food was dropped on the floor with glass and food all over us and no apologies, when finished our meal, we again waited for our bill and had a long wait for it.
In Short:
Nice decor
Mediocre food - nothing to write home about
Poor food value - overpriced
Poor service

“after many years of visiting...VERY disillusioned”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2009

have been coming here since Angel opened the restaurant. Last night a HUGE disappointment. Will never go back. We all know wages are low in Mexico, so what justifies paying prices higher than we pay in Vancouver...when the fish is caught here????? I suggest supporting small local places

“Outstanding Sushi, but you pay for it!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2009

Took most of the family to Nik San for sushi dinner and even those who are not normal sushi enthusiasts enjoyed the food.

Black and White Tuna Sashimi was the best I have ever eaten. But you definately expect good food as the prices are also some of the highest in town.
