    The food was okay. The issue is the bait and switch menu tactic this restaurant manages. Their menu is just “for reference” but the actual prices are market price. For example, the spicy tuna roll is $180MXN, but they actually bill $350MXN. The nigiri is also 2-3x the price. The menu states salmon nigiri is 2 pieces, but they actually only give you 1 at 2–3x the printed rate. The waiter even gets annoyed when he has to tell you more than once the “actual price” of the sushi. Beware that you’ll spend 2-3x as much as the menu if you eat here.

    First let me say that the food was amazing! This review is not about that. #1 - They do not have a Happy Hour. This I feel, is a intentional misleading piece of marketing, used to entice people into the restaurant. When we inquired into it, our server said he needed to ask the manager about it and then never provided an answer (as if we never asked the question). We had to inquire again, only to be told that this is old information, and it needs to be updated on their website and OpenTable. #2 - We ordered the high end Omakase dining experience. As stated on OpenTable, this is a fixed price total dining experience. At $2000mx per person (approximately $90US per person) this is already high for the area. When we got about 10 "courses" in, we inquired into how many more "courses" we would receive as we were getting full. At this point and only after we asked, we were told they would continue to serve us until we told them to stop. We asked them to stop at this point. They then continued to serve us 2 more courses after this. When the bill arrived, it was approximately $50 more per person than the stated price. When we inquired into the cost, the owner (or manager) came over and told us the price was an estimate and that it was based on how much we ate, despite the website description. They made no attempt to make right on the situation. We genuinely feel this was also an intentional misleading piece of marketing. I never write reviews unless it is a 1 star or 5 star experience so this is a very unique review for me. Buyer be aware. If you want to pay California prices for a Omakase dining experience in San Jose then this is your place. The food is great. But, there are many great high end seafood/sushi options in the area at a reasonable price with a better view that don't intentionally mislead their customers to get them in the door.

    An excellent sushi experience. Didn't expect this gem, but wow. Staff are very friendly. Fish is VERY fresh. If you're a fan of sushi that focuses on quality rather than jazzy rolls, this is for you. So good I went TWICE in a week while in Cabo on vacation.

    OMAKAI SUSHIResponded on 14 May 2022Thank you very much Robert. Hope to have you back very soon!

    Was our second time there and were very excited. Started out good but after a large party arrived it all went down hill from that point on and service just vanished. I know these things happen but as they get more popularity with this flamenco night maybe it is time to have more resources to cope with higher volume. The food is great and the ambiance as well I will continue to visit when I come back to Los Cabos

    OMAKAI SUSHIResponded on 18 March 2022Hola Dionis, Thank you very much for your comments, We are working on it, hope we can change your mind on your next visit!

    We had a great time! Delicious fresh fish. Some of the best sushi rice I've had in Los Cabos. There is a flamenco dancer with superb musical backup on Tuesday. I can't wait to return! They made a lovely birthday presentation for my friend!

    We really enjoyed our evening at Omakai. We chose the omakase menu and every dish delivered. We were the first in the restaurant at 5:15 but by the time we left they had a handful of tables. It is apparent that they are still finding their service rhythm but the food was everything we hoped for and more. Will definitely return.

    Excelente servicio, tuvieron mucha atencion a los minimos detalles, la musica en vivo muy agradable, el sonido de la fuente es un detalle increible, no nos queriamos ir. Todavia pedi unos nigiris para llevar de lo rico que estuvo todo. Tienen opcion de cocina caliente para los que no comen nada crudo como fue el caso de mis amistades. Totalmente recomendado
