More than a restaurant, Nicksan is a culinary experience of the highest level. In its open kitchen, the ingredients of two ancestral cultures located on opposite sides of the world are fused.

Its owners Masayuki Niikura and Ángel Carbajal, originally from Japan and Mexico respectively, opened the first Nicksan restaurant in Los Cabos in 1994, creating amazing congruencies between the flavors of both countries.

Some of the signature dishes that you can taste at our fabulous Residences Plaza location in Nuevo Vallarta are the spicy tuna cake, the salmon skin cone, the Shiromi Coriander and Maguro Lemon sushi rolls, the cucumber salad with wakame seaweed and crab, the gorgonzola shrimp and the serranito beef fillet.

Within our new cocktail and sake menu you will find unique creations, perfect to match your lunch, dinner or just to toast with friends in an environment full of elegance and flavor. Come and try the best of two worlds!

    La calidad de alimentos excepcional,sigue siendo de mis preferidos Peroooo... es deficiente la recepción, aun cuando estaban prácticamente vacíos ese dia y ese horario. Baños les falta mantenimiento y las amenidades propias del lugar y precio. el Local sigue siendo el mismo por años no se han renovado. Le falta capacitación a los meseros, El mesero que nos atendió , aunque amable, no tomó bien nuestra solicitud de alimentos ..,nos trajeron otra cosa: en. ves de traernos las jaibas nos trajeron sushi con jaiba ... gran diferencia aunque deliciosa

    We went to Nicksan 4 times during our three-week visit to Nuevo/Puerto Vallarta. We love the combination of Mexican and Japanese cuisines in their plates. The ahi is as fresh as the best we have had in Hawaii but with the Mexican fusion. . The manager, Ivan, is very attentive. We appreciate their efforts to make us fully satisfied.

    Excelente comida en cuanto a sabor y presentación. Sobresaliente la rapidez con la que estuvieron nuestros platillos! Todos! El servicio de Jesús de primer nivel. Iván también al pendiente del servicio y la comida. Muy recomendable En especial la tostada de atún. El sashimi de hamachi con curry, el de atún con trufa y el rollo de salmón con limon amarillo. Los carajillos también están muy bien preparados con un excelente café. Sin lugar a dudas el mejor restaurant japonés en Vallarta.

    Mi principal problema con este restaurante es su menú. No es claro el tipo de platillo que se está pidiendo ya que no están correctamente clasificados. Al no tener fotografías, resulta muy difícil distinguir si un platillo viene con complementos, si es un rollo, sashimi o algo más, y los meseros nos dieron información parcialmente errónea al momento de pedir. Terminé viendo las fotos en facebook para elegir lo que quería comer ya que en verdad no es nada práctico el menú. La comida es muy sabrosa, las porciones me parecieron adecuadas por la calidad/precio y en general fue una buena experiencia, pero no había tenido tanta dificultad para pedir de un menú.

    Have been dining here since it’s opening. But I will never return . The restaurant is managed terribly and after waiting for over an hour for the other half of our order we left . Food quantity is not worth the wait time . This has happened more the once. Bright spot is a new sushi restaurant is open in the area ver soon.
