Just had a few of the tapas and their delicious mushroom and onion soup. On a busy corner and only outside seating during off-season...actually enjoyed the crazy driving. My husband had a great mango margarita...only negative was my flat Coca Light soft drink.

Thank you so much for your review and enjoying our patio at nu. It´s quite a sight to see from the patio...one of the best people watching corners in the world, they say. But I call it a commotion-watching corner. I apologize about the coke and wish you had mentioned it so we could give you a new one, but... More

This visit was our first to Nu, and our party of six had a wonderful evening. The food was very good, and the service was perfect. The owner made us feel like we had been coming for years (though Nu is a brand new restaurant). In the heart of southtown PV, Nu is a great option for drinks, a quick... More

This place is a perfect combination of low key swank. Good value for drinks especially during Happy Hour and the tapas are fabulous and edgy! Top it off with a view of the bay and sunset or enjoy upstairs with wonderful musicians. This is a joy to have in my home neighborhood!

Thank you very much for your review. Swank is an excellent word and I´m flattered as well as proud that we´re getting ever more where the goals for nu are. A nice community neighborhood place is definitely a goal, so thank you for your repeat business and bringing new friends and neighbors. It is much appreciated! More

Great little tapas restaurant. Innovative bites - great for sharing. Amazing value, particularly during happy hour(s) when drinks are 2 for 1. A good place to catch the sunset. I spent two HHs of a 5 day trip at Nu. Friendly service!

Don't get to judge the place by the narrow lanes and shabby entrance to the upstairs deck. Cross all these you are in for a pleasant surprise. A great tapas menu, very very innovative and value for money added with knowledgeable friendly service makes the place a must try . Right from the cauliflower ceviche or dill marinated potatoes ,...

First time here, been wanting to go for the last couple trips, but just never got to it. This is both a casual and a classy place. We sat upstairs where it's open air and where they had a singer with a wonderful voice. You can also sit at the small bar downstairs on the sidewalk. The tapas were fun... More

Nu is a really nice spot to get some tasty treats in a relaxing atmosphere. We tried half a dozen dishes and everything was good. The place is relaxed and comfortable, but has modern touches that complement the contemporary interpretation of the tapas. The drinks are tasty too. The service was great and the staff friendly. There is also a... More
