Description: 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!

“Delicious food, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

I went here with a friend during our last night on the island and it was the perfect way to end our trip. The food completely outdid our expectations, as we weren't entirely sure what to expect from a Mexican sushi bar. The seaweed salad was a delicious starter, and the tuna roll was made-to-order and wonderfully fresh. The ambiance was casual but thoughtfully designed and perched on a second-floor covered balcony that overlooks the street. Surrounded by treetops and glowing lanterns, the place has a charming, slightly whimsical feel. The staff were attendant and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. A wonderful last dinner in Holbox!

“Great food and excellent service”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had a chance to visit this cozy restaurant during our visit and enjoy their specialty, they offer a 2 x 1 promotion in Caipiriñas and it's conveniently located a few steps from the main square inside El Pueblito, a unique shopping mall in Holbox. Prices are very reasonable =)

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I asked what they recommended, and was told the 'Mango Roll'. It was crab, avocado, mango and a mildly spicy sauce. It was wonderful on its own, but when I dipped it in soy sauce it was incredible! I was drinking Sauvignon Blanc and it paired nicely! The atmosphere and music were very nice, and as it is on the 2nd floor, there is no street noise. Highly recommended by me as well!

“Excellent sushi in Mexico!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

On the second floor of the "big city mall" you wil find El Sushi, a small outside restaurant on a balcony.
Very friendly staff welcomes you. We ordered regular sushi and the Mango roll (not on the menu, chef's special). All of the sushi was made when ordered, and was very fresh! The Mango roll is highly recommended!! Delicious!
Also the prices are very low compared to other sushi restaurants.

Certainly a place to get back to...

“Come to Holbox for the fish, but not the sushi.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

While strolling through town for a place to eat, we came across this little restaurant in the “mall” located across from the movie theater on the second level and thought “fantastic sushi in a fish mecca”. Sadly we were disappointed and if you are a sushi lover like we are, then you will most likely be disappointed too. The fish selection is quite small and it would seem not to include some of the local fish….perhaps we came on the wrong night? We did have one noodle dish that reminded us of the Top Ramen dishes we made in college. We did have one roll that was “decent”….but overall our food expectations were a disappointment, perhaps because we have been spoiled from other sushi establishments around the world.


However, the service was very good with the owner taking the time to talk to us and when we sent a dish back, there were no questions asked. Drinks were also good. But overall, it was a disappoint for us…an “A” for effort but a “D” for execution.
