When you've had enough beach food, want something a little bit sophisticated and unusual you must try Nicksan. By far the best Asian food in Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta. I always ask the waiters what the favorites foods are...they will never lead your wrong because they know their tips depend on it. This is a locals favourite. You will love it.

Excellent sushi! My favorite dish is the tuna tartar. While part of the Marival Group, it isn't included in your all-inclusive package at the Residences; however, it is well worth the extra cost.

This place has excellent service, and the food is amazing, they give Japanese dishes a slight Mexican touch that takes them to a new level. Only thing to keep in mind is prices are on par with Canadian sushi places.

This is a great choice for creative sushi and an upscale environment at a fabulous price. The Tuna tartar alone is worth the trip. And the Tuna and truffles is out of this world!

First off - the welcome and service is excellent. The menu is great. There are plentiful items. Everything we have ordered has been really good. We are from Hawaii so we know our sushi restaurants. This is a fantastic sushi restaurant to find in Mexico. John/Ana

Went here before dinner one night for a few rolls and drinks - the place was empty but the staff were reluctant to give us a table to protect their later reservations. Once seated us they did a great job and the sushi was very good.

Enjoyed a dinner here, but not a part of the Marival all inclusive. The food was fresh and nicely prepared and presented. My husband is allergic to shellfish, and care was taken to insure that he had no issues. It was a nice change for us.

Nicksan is one of our favourite places to eat when in Nuevo Vallarta, we ask Angel ( one of the waiters) to pick our meal choices and he consistently makes excellent choices while giving us a different experience every time (Tuna Tostada is a must have).

We enjoyed our chef special dinner which consisted of 5 courses. All were tasty. We sat indoors, which is a little noisy. Sit outside if possible. Make sure you mention food allergies. I'm allergic to avocado and mentioned it when we ordered, but still got something with avocado.
