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!...

waited 45 minutes for our 2 rolls and 1 noodles order. there were only 3 tables except us so there is no excuse if there is an excuse for that. i didn't let the food arrive at my table, I told the waiter to give me the check for the drinks because I'm leaving. what a ridiculous place.

The sushi, the gioza and the cake were really good and the service was also excellent. The waitress was so nice, she even taught us some Spanish. Highly recommended!

The food was good, but it took a while to get our appetizer and even longer to get our food. The delay was much longer than expected.

I didn't expect to find sushi on the small island of Holbox but we passed this place and decided to give it a try. Glad we did! They had a great menu and some really delicious options for sushi lovers as well as those who want other options like ramen with arrachera steak--yum! We had 3 rolls, ramen and tempura... More

Food fantastic super fresh fish as you would expect. We ordered a selection for the table as a family of 7 and tasted all specials. Only one I wouldn't reorder was the octopus. Service of drinks super slow especially when re ordering a round.

My sushi had sweet banana wrapped around the outside and was really unusual and tasty my son had like steak and my husband a chilli seafood... More

Went twice. Great sushi and a nice change from Mexican. Not the cheapest especially when you want a few types. The ramen isnt great. It was some noodles and sliced veg. Not what you expect for a ramen. They do 2 for 1 cocktails 5-7pm but only on 3 cocktails. Ask which ones have the offer.

If you are addicted to sushi like me, you will not be dissapointed. They also offer their own carribean twist on some sushi such as by adding fried banana and with their pineapple soy sauce its actually tasty. You can stick with traditional sushi too if you like. Sevas the waiter is very attentive, very helpful and incredibly nice. The... More

If you're looking for a change of pace from ceviche and tacos, I can understand wanting to try out El Sushi de Holbox. However, we left feeling MEH at best. The drinks are off. Not bad, just not good. The sushi and sashimi were unremarkable. There were flavors that just seemed odd and unexpected, not in a good way. It... More

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!
