Food - marginally better than what we get in Canadian prairies

Service - our server was a little on the rude side

Value - way too overpriced: we had 1 order of nigiri, 1 order of rolls, and 1 order of tempura; we also had 1 big Japanese beer each (Asahi and Sapparo). Our bill came to $120.00 CAN.

Atmosphere - there isn't much of one. A bunch of tables crammed in to a large open room. Nothing special.

We have enjoyed this restaurant on previous trips to Cabo and we love good sushi but it was a big disappointment this time around. The food is so overpriced, amateur servers, paper napkins, food not all that tasty. They must be putting all of their efforts into their second location at Palmilla. We wanted wine by the glass and the menu doesn't even indicate what winery the wine is from or the year. When we asked our waiter he did not know and that was it. We had 2 glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, one sushi roll, one order of shashimi, and two tuna tartar bites on a cracker. The bill was $108 USD before tip! Ridiculous. The sushi that we had at the sushi bar at our Hotel (Pueblo Bonito Pacifica) was MUCH better for a lot less money.

Very nice sushi place. A little on the pricey side even for sushi. All the rolls are listed but you have to ask the waiter what is in each roll and then you forget when it's time to order. My non-sushi eating friend got the chicken- terriayki, and said it was good, it came with noodles/rice and veggies. A little slow to refill water, but was happy to see lot's of people in there. I think we if were drinking "real" drinks they would have been happier to serve us. No carry out menu or menu to go.

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
