    Nü was recommended on the food blogs but to be honest, while the flavors were there, some of our food was undercooked (lamb AND our weirdly, also our carrot dish). The value was also missing compared to other places recommended on the food blogs. Last but not least, our waiter was not as attentive as other wait staff. All in all, ‘eh’.

    We arrived promptly for our 7.45 pm table. At 8pm they had not taken our drinks order and although the restaurant looked adequately staffed, the employees mostly ignored us. It was the weirdest experience we have encountered in quite a long time. We expected an upscale dining experience and the service fell well below expectations. We are guests at the hotel and everything at the hotel has been outstanding, with fabulous employees who want to help you. We chose to leave without dining.

    Avoid at all costs! They have no clue whatsoever how to treat customers and their food is awful. Go to Hartwood, Arca, or Wild instead which are all amazing.

    Was there before but this time both cocktails and food was quite tasteless. No contrast, no calibration - just pretty bland i think is the best word.. and that was for every dish. most employees was very nice - especially the host - but the waiter - when commenting on the lack of taste and bad cut of fish and meat - where some we had to return - was quite unfriendly. Anyway point being considering the selection and food level in tulum - this for sure is not anywhere near the competitors.

    The ambience was a little underwhelming but the service was some of the best I’ve had in Tulum. Would certainly go back but would recommend a little more effort in the main dining area. A few pots with plants to breakup the bland seating area would go a long way!

We ordered the Campeche Shrimps (fresh and delicious) the mushroom tempura (delicious) for main: catch of the day and stuffed chile with chorizo (taste was bland) overall not the blow your mind gourmet experience, but a nice wine and the best in the menu: grilled pineapple dessert.

    My wife and I got there for the cocktail Tastings to start. 3 phenomenal drinks. We then stayed longer than we planned and got FOUR dishes. 2 light “appetizer” style dishes, and 2 entrees. We split them all and were absolutely amazing by every bite and taste. Seriously would be fine going back every night. It was AMAZING. Thank you NU!

    We reserved a table for my birthday on our first night in Tulum and had an amazing time! Make sure to ask for Eduardo. He made sure everything went great and helped us with recommendations based on our tastes. The mezcal cocktails were delicious and each plate we had was wonderful. Definitely a romantic atmosphere so it’s perfect for couples. He was also able to give us tons of recommendations for the rest of our trip and was extremely friendly. We might even go there for another dinner before our trip ends!

Everything was fresh and the delightful. The space was so pretty and a DJ was playing lively music in the garden. Our server Alberto was very thorough and attentive.

    10/10 would recommend this place! We went as a group of 12 for my boyfriends birthday and everything was incredible. From the ambience, the greenery, the service, the drinks, to the food. We tasted all of the cocktails and ended up ordering two of everything off the menu. When the food got to our table, our server explained all of the dishes. If we are ever in Tulum again, we will definitely be back.

    4. Ambience 3
    Stands out among Tulum restaurants for unique preparations. Relatively subdued setting for Tulum ; loud by any other standards. Expensive.
