Only thing I would change is raise the bar to fully experience the expertise of the sushi chefs and full kitchen!! Cucumber Salad one of the best salads ever. Tuna Tostada also excellent choice.

Nicksan used to be one of the very few Nuevo Vallarta restaurants I recommended to friends in the past. Not anymore. Not anymore. The food is still very good but the attitude towards guest lacks of friendliness and openness. We ordered the 349 pesos 5 course special with "Unlimited house drinks included during your meal". Which is actually a 6... More

This place had had some of my husband's favorite sushi. The waiters were very attentive. It was probably the best service we had at a restaurant during our vacation. The tuna tartar is good. The hand rolls are also good. We had a roll that had salmon and lemons in it. My husband loved it, it was a little different... More

Good selection, excellent service and very good taste. On Saturday night it was really full but the staff still made an effort to squeeze us in without reservation. :)

The food was excellent and they have unique dishes but the service at the restaurant was awful, they took 30 minutes to take our order and they barely asked if we needed anything. They left dirty dishes on the table for a long and we had to ask at least three for something before they brought it. It was disappointing... More

Incredible Sushi but service was slow and disappointing. We went here twice and both times the service was slow but the food was great! The prices are also very comfortable and good atmosphere.
