Went for dinner here excited because we had eaten at the Nick San in Nuevo Vallarta and it did not disappoint. Upon arrival everyone greeted us and helped us with seating for 2 and a baby. Our waiter was amazing and so helpful. We mentioned to him about our visit to the one in Nuevo Vallarta and he explained how this location is the first and Nuevo Vallarta is franchise and menu is a bit different but they would definitely be able to serve us similar or the same food items. We stayed off with the tuna tostada for each and tuna black & white sashimi. So good! We then got a roll to share. Don't know the name but it has shrimp tempura In the inside, avocado and tuna on the outside. And a spicy oil sauce. So good too. Our next items was a roll with lobster in the inside wrapped in rice paper. I asked our waiter about an alcoholic beverage for me. I'm not a bit drinker and don't like the taste of alcohol. He recommended one with mezcal, orange juice, some spicy ness to it and Tajín on the rim. It was delicious! It had a little habanero in it and it had a burnt taste to it that complimented it well. For dessert we had a chocolate soufflé / cake with ice cream. It was simple but good. It came with almonds but I could've been good with out them. The size of dessert was personal size for my liking. But still good.
In Cabo we knew we had to try fresh seafood and sushi and Nick-San was rated #1. This rating serves it well as it was some of the tastiest fish we've ever had. I normally order sushi rolls but I knew they were known for their sashimi dishes here so I had to try some of them as well. My favorite was the black and white tuna as it was so flavorful and fresh. The serranito one was a bit spicy but I still enjoyed that one a lot as well. The best sushi roll was the shrimp tempura as it was so much more unique than I expected. It was similar to a California roll but almost fried in tempura so the entire roll was crunchy. It was really unique and delicious. I would recommend Nick-San to anyone who wants to try fresh fish from Cabo and hopefully I will make it back one day!
There are thousands of Japanese restaurants serving mediocre to reasonably good sushi but generally without much creative skill when it comes to presentation and unique tastes. Nick-San isn't one of them. The restaurant is in the old downtown close to the marina and is modern in design. The greeting, seating process and service were all well done although our group of seven felt a little rushed with the numerous dishes we ordered. Having said that, the food was delicious. I mean really delicious with noticeably high quality fish with texture not found in lesser establishments. More than half the dishes served were totally new to me as an experienced consumer of sushi around the world and I was impressed. As I mentioned in another review of Nick-San, it isn't Nobu but it is close and is actually quite reasonable in price for a high end Cabo restaurant. I recommend and will visit again.
