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!

“Great food, great people.”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

In four days of being on Holbox we have eaten here 2 nights . . . that is because, while the selection of sushi is small, it is So Fresh and So Delicious - i keep ordering extra pieces. Other offerings are also worthy - my pal had a lightly seared tuna rolled in sesame seeds and another time the arachera with grilled vegies . . . so there really is something for everyone. The restaurant sits above the street and is very simple yet comfortable. And the people that run the place are just very welcoming, casual and generous - which is to also say that this place isnt overpriced as are many on this island. We really love El Sushi and undoubtedly will go back again during this stay.

“Great food, outstanding flavors!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We visited El Sushi de Holbox twice during our stay in the island, both times we were impressed with the quality and flavor of the food we ordered. You definitely need to try the "Sanaka Roll"

We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Holbox!

“Above and beyond expectations”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Great atmosphere and the coldest beer on the island. The food was delicious, but it was so well displayed I didn't want to eat it. Seriously, I took pictures of every dish.

“Delicious food, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

I went here with a friend during our last night on the island and it was the perfect way to end our trip. The food completely outdid our expectations, as we weren't entirely sure what to expect from a Mexican sushi bar. The seaweed salad was a delicious starter, and the tuna roll was made-to-order and wonderfully fresh. The ambiance was casual but thoughtfully designed and perched on a second-floor covered balcony that overlooks the street. Surrounded by treetops and glowing lanterns, the place has a charming, slightly whimsical feel. The staff were attendant and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. A wonderful last dinner in Holbox!

“Great food and excellent service”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

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 =)
