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!

Our group of five with one vegetarian and two with varying seafood allergies might have had difficulty with the menu, but with the server’s help, worked it out to have an enjoyable meal for all.

Another great meal at Nicksan. First of all our server OLIVER was fabulous. We ordered cocktails and handed him the menus back. We told him a few of our dislikes and asked him to bring us 5-6 dishes of his choice. He did not disappoint. My wife loves the Lychee Martini - truly she dreams of them prior to our trip to Mexico. I enjoy the refreshing Cucumber Martini. Normally I’m a Dirty Martini guy but there’s are so wonderfully refreshing as I stated, give it a try!!!

Service was slow and inconsistent (some of our party received appetizers and meals too soon before the rest). Good was either very over cooked or very undercooked. Not a pleasant meal for any of us. Very disappointed
