TLD;R: Overpriced food in a nice setting. I won’t be back and wouldn’t recommend to my friends.

You’d expect that at this price level the waiters would be able to explain or at least translate the menu items but they didn’t.

The appetizers were good but the cocktail I ordered was disappointing.

The hospitality was phenomenal and the food was unique, flavorful, and worth the price.
We loved our time there. They had to temporarily serve dinner next door at Itzik due to repairs after a hurricane. Normally it seems the ambiance would be quiet and romantic. We loved the ambiance of being at Itzik. Fun energy all around us, still romantic and such a beautiful setting.
It was the only food we had throughout our stay that was memorable and we both gushed about.
Thank you so much!

Sexy atmosphere & fun food presentation, jungle vibes meets fine dining. Service was stellar and the drinks were fun to watch when being made. Staff works together and the kitchen means serious business. The best part was when Chef and owner Cesar came to the table to say hello and share his story with us. Made the evening more special!
Only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the smoke but it’s part of the Tulum vibe. It grew on me after a few mezcal shots 😉

In Tulum for our anniversary. Nu was our favorite restaurant. Super classy and beautifully designed.

The staff was awesome , food was great and the music was really nice. It didn’t have that same
Old annoying bump bump bump beat- it was upbeat, fun and classy. Some old 70’s and 80’s tunes and re-makes as well as current tunes.

We also loved that the restaurant takes care of a small kitten they have named Shawarma.

Good Food! Beautiful dish presentation, Gorgeous venue and Good folk. A very upscale experience all in all.

Highly recommend.

We went to Nü Tulum with no idea this would be the best place to go on our last night. We ordered the oysters and cauliflowers & I am still dreaming about it. The flavors of the cauliflower was so amazing I regret not ordering a second round. The oyster! I didn’t know something so small could pack so much flavor!. We then ordered the black mole with duck and the estofado. We seriously enjoyed every bite I’m sure I wanted to lick my plate. We ordered dessert because we were AMAZED by everything we had ate we just couldn’t leave without dessert. We got the tres leches and Marquesita and I’m so happy we did. It was such an amazing experience I cannot wait to return to Nü. Once we were done the chef came on over and we had to let her know it was freaking great. If you ever wonder if you should go to Nü just go. You will not regret it.!
