NÜ is run by 7 talented chefs lead by Cesar Castañeda, who was elected as one of Mexico’s 10 best Chefs under 30 by Gourmet Magazine.
When leaving Mexico City to start this adventure, the team of 7 got their arm tattooed with a heptagon symbolizing the spiritual bond between them. This tattoo then became our logo, and we are very proud of it.
NÜ is the brainchild of adventurer, design enthusiast and entrepreneur Yves Naman, who is also behind La Valise Hotels.
It was an amazing date with an amazing guy that I love. so the restaurant made us have a great experience .
Nu was our last dinner in Tulum. It was the best meal and one of our highlights. Our cocktails were delicious with Yerba flower petals on the exterior, Appetizers & duck with mole were delicious to the final bite. We celebrated my daughter’s bday. They brought a beautiful plate to end our celebration. Great atmosphere & free parking! Highly recommend.
It’s a really special place.
Lovely atmosphere and excellent food and service.
Loved everything about this restaurant! Decided to come here for my birthday and it was absolutely the best. The ambience is very relaxing,beautiful outdoor space and amazing food. It was a bit quiet but we also came in around 10 pm. Food was amazing and the drinks were outstanding. This is perfect for a date night or special occasion.
An overall outstanding experience!
Fantastic food and great service. We loved the Wood Oven Baked vegetables Rice
with almond aioli, the octopus and the Mackerel Carpaccio!!! Best food we had in Tulum!!!
Un po’ caro ma secondo me il migliore della zona. Cibo, atmosfera e servizio impeccabile. Super!
Camarena provided us with superb customer service
The most incredible meal we’ve ever had in a tulum. Every single detail was perfection. The absolute best new restaurant along the strip and a MUST for anyone visiting! Coco was the best server too :)
Welcoming knowledgeable staff, beautiful ambiance and excellent innovative food
I took my fiance here to celebrate his birthday our first night in Tulum and it was the best meal we had our whole trip. From the minute we sat down the ambiance and service was amazing. Then we got our drinks and food which we were blown away by. We hadn't had a meal that amazing in a while, even the complimentary bread was unique and delicious.
We ordered the marinated mushrooms, shrimp & passion fruit aguachile, duck & black mole, and octopus in black recaudo. All of it was phenomenal! The stand outs to me were the marinated mushrooms and the duck mole. I wish this place existed where I live cause I would go back all the time for those dishes.
For dessert, they brought a complimentary flan out for my fiance and then a corn biscocho for me. Both were so good!
Definitely a must go, if you are in Tulum!
Average food . Menu ok. Trying too hard to be different
Nos fue pésimo con la comida, sin sabor, los platos súper chiquitos. El restaurante súper bonito pero nada que ver la comida, solo había disponibilidad de cócteles pedimos trago y nunca llegó.
Absolutely fantastic experience. The sushi was the best I’ve had anywhere, right up there with Nobu. The menu is a vast so we asked the server/owner to bring the best stuff. He delivered in a big way.
We went to Nu Encatada our first night in Tulum and I have to say it was amazing! Dinner under the stars and candlelight—the ambiance was unparalleled to any other restaurant we went to after. I had the catch of the day and my friend got the duck mole. The best cocktail was the house take on the caprinha with a lime twist. Don’t hesitate to dine here when you come to Tulum!
It was so good. Our server was excellent and explained everything well. We had the duck and the octopus which I am still thinking about.
The fish was the best we’ve had so far, better than kin toh! Also had wonderful dessert and appetizers. Even left our jackets and they brought them back to the hotel... so sweet!
First time visit was in September 2018 and the food/drinks were outstanding. Second visit was March 2019 and everything was disappointing. Octopus was rubbery, drinks took forever to arrive and were too sweet. Homemade bread with dips was consistent and still good as well as the aguachile.
Amazing experience in Tulum. Try the Duck Mole. The entire environment and ambiance was breathtaking.
Amazing ❤️ Make sure to try out their appertizer with lemon ice cream. It's to die for.
Fabulous food, tasty drinks, lovely setting, attentive wait staff. Everything our group ordered was delicious . Inventive flavor combinations! The staff was very friendly, patiently describing the ingredients we could not recognize on the menu. The setting was beautiful- you’d never know that you were right off the busy beach road. We’d definitely go back again!
Amazing/unique food and great ambiance! Loved our meal here
This was a pleasant surprise and find! The food is not your traditional Mexican food, however, provides a unique twist on it! It was expensive and the portions were small, however, we had some of the best dishes here! Staff was very knowledgable on suggesting meals that suited our liking.
Food outstanding, atmosphere very comfortable. Enjoyed our evening. The service while prompt, was very brusque. This is a comment related only to our primary waitperson. The rest of the staff was very friendly and engaging.
Best food we had in Tulum and the only restaurant we found which went beyond the standard among the better restaurants: the dishes were innovative and interesting and not only delicious. The cocktails were great although the wine list, like other top restaurants, was entirely forgettable. Quite a cozy atmosphere - would go back if I had the chance.
Favorite restaurant in Tulum. Would definitely dine at this restaurant again. Excellent service, drinks, food, atmosphere.
Get the steak carpaccio. Best thing we had in Tulum!
Not only is the food amazing but the entire and staff! The atmosphere is pure magic. Be sure to explore the cocktail menu as they take mixology just as serious as their cuisine.
Our first visit to Tulum and to NÜ. Food preparation was perfect with very creative and delicious dishes. Exotic flavors that were out of the ordinary and absolutely delicious - using herbs and spices of Mexican cuisine. Fish of the day was fresh mahi mahi in a rich broth that was nicely paired with a rice dish. Very attentive servers eager to share information about the dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely setting and ambience. Caring, solicitous service-- Marco, our server, took care to explain everything and to describe the many indigenous ingredients. In addition, one of the chefs came by to say hello and to make us feel welcome-- a nice touch. I mentioned indigenous ingredients-- the restaurant uses a wealth of local ingredients, some quite new to us. This made for a unique meal, unlike anything we could get back home. We were not rushed; we were made to feel very comfortable, as we enjoyed a special meal.
Excelente comida !!
We love the food scene in Tulum. There are many great restaurants to choose from and Nu provided a whole different experience with inventive flavor combinations and creative menu choices. We had been recommended the restaurant by a couple of people on this trip and are glad we tried it.
Our meal at Nu Tulum was the best we had during our time in Tulum. The food is inventive and delicious. There is great attention to the entire dining experience - wonderful wait staff, lovely music, and pleasant interior design. The pork belly tacos are not to be missed and will not be what you expect.
Excellent staff, food and ambiance. Must if you are staying in Tulum.
Our favorite restaurant in Tulum! Amazing food, beautiful presentation, ambiance on point and great prices!
Incredible food. So fresh, tasty and really prompt service. We're guests at Encantada and loved our welcome drinks too. Everyone was very helpful and quick to help. The ceviche and fish of the day was phenomenal. We loved everything we ordered (I'm vegetarian and loved how many options there were!)
La comida y el servicio fue muy bueno, solo el postre (pastel de tres leches) no fue nada bueno. Fuera de eso, muy bien.
Food and ambiance were amazing. Definitely order the fried rice...soooo good. We will come back next time we visit.
