When going to Holbox I can't say that sushi was the first thing that came to mind when thinking about dinner, but it is now. I was very impressed with the quality of our food, the variety of the menu options, and the excellent service. We had such an amazing experience in the beginning of our trip that we had... More

Nice place to eat. Most tables outside. Most things on menu but some dishes come with a lot of mayonnaise !

The sushi was fresh, fresh catches daily available on the menu. The service was excellent and our waiter recommended different options and foods. I really enjoyed the seaweed salad as it was different compared to all salads I've had of that style. Pro - They have non sushi for the non sushi eaters.

After seeing a few mixed recent reviews we weren't sure but the overall rating was so high we thought we would try it out. Not disappointed at all. Had a crab toast to start which was a glorified tostada but was exceptionally tasty. The lobster roll was delicious and tuna maki rolls were epic. Would recommend for sure. It wasn't... More

For dinner we ordered a couple of pieces of salmon and local white fish with truffle oil, some noodles and plain rice for... More

Following reviews from fellow travellers, we checked out El Sushi de Holbox for a change from the usual mexican fare we had been consuming during our time in Holbox. Cocktail list was great, definitely recommend the lychee martini! We ordered the salmon sashimi, tuna tartare and the lobster roll - the latter tasting simply suberb. Also good value and fun...

My son really wanted sushi so we stopped in here to try a few rolls. Tho the ingredients tasted fresh, it seemed that there was an over reliance on mayonnaise in the three rolls we tried. Surprisingly enough we preferred the more basic rolls than the one specialty roll we tried. Portions were nice and large, tho they skimped on... More

We love sushi and eat it often back home in NJ, so it's not the first cuisine we think of when visiting Mexico. However, we decided to drop in for dinner to visit our good friend Aurelio, and we're so glad we did! This sushi has a unique Mexican twist, and the citrus soy sauce and pepper sauces are AMAZING!...

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!
