Description: 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!

We had a chance to visit this cozy restaurant during our visit and enjoy their specialty, they offer a 2 x 1 promotion in Caipiriñas and it's conveniently located a few steps from the main square inside El Pueblito, a unique shopping mall in Holbox. Prices are very reasonable =)

I asked what they recommended, and was told the 'Mango Roll'. It was crab, avocado, mango and a mildly spicy sauce. It was wonderful on its own, but when I dipped it in soy sauce it was incredible! I was drinking Sauvignon Blanc and it paired nicely! The atmosphere and music were very nice, and as it is on the 2nd floor, there is no street noise. Highly recommended by me as well!

On the second floor of the "big city mall" you wil find El Sushi, a small outside restaurant on a balcony.
Very friendly staff welcomes you. We ordered regular sushi and the Mango roll (not on the menu, chef's special). All of the sushi was made when ordered, and was very fresh! The Mango roll is highly recommended!! Delicious!
Also the prices are very low compared to other sushi restaurants.

Certainly a place to get back to...

While strolling through town for a place to eat, we came across this little restaurant in the “mall” located across from the movie theater on the second level and thought “fantastic sushi in a fish mecca”. Sadly we were disappointed and if you are a sushi lover like we are, then you will most likely be disappointed too. The fish selection is quite small and it would seem not to include some of the local fish….perhaps we came on the wrong night? We did have one noodle dish that reminded us of the Top Ramen dishes we made in college. We did have one roll that was “decent”….but overall our food expectations were a disappointment, perhaps because we have been spoiled from other sushi establishments around the world.


However, the service was very good with the owner taking the time to talk to us and when we sent a dish back, there were no questions asked. Drinks were also good. But overall, it was a disappoint for us…an “A” for effort but a “D” for execution.

The sushi was amazing. One of our best dinners on Holbox when you are needing your sushi fix. Good value.
