Amazing sushi and Japanese delicacies in a friendly environment. A slightly eclectic mix of sushi, sports on all TVs and dance music, all with good service and at a decent price. Well worth a visit if you want to get away from the all-inc buffets!!

Nick-San is a regular go to restaurant for our annual (time share week's 51&52) visits to Cabo. Always fresh and fun. Service is friendly and location is right on the main street in Cabo. The 'rolls" are wonderful.

Excellent sushi and great service. We let the waiter choose our dishes based on what we liked and it was awesome!! I would go back for sure! Actually we wanted to go back our last day but it wasn't open yet. Go! You'll love it!

The sushi was great but definitely overpriced and the atmosphere was totally cheesy. Japanese decor meets loud country music meets Mexican servers who didn't speak English...we had just as good sushi at 12 Tribes outside right on the water..

Hands down the best sushi ever! Just sit at the bar and ask Eddie to make it happen. It's absolutely amazing and you won't be disappointed. Everything is fresh and amazing!! Be brave as you won't regret it.

It is always a pleasure to come back to Nick San. The quality of fish has remained top notch and I love the creative rolls they offer.

Best japanese restaurant in Cabos. Really awesome! It can be expensive, like everything in Cabos, but the menu, service, food are absolutely worth it.
