“Wonderful food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Although we didn't dine in the restaurant, the conference at the Kursaal had their catering from this restaurant, and the snacks were delicious. At one break we had, what my colleague called a 'european doughnut' it was what seemed to be a deep fried pastry filled with the lightest cream, and dusted with powdered sugar! yum!

“Great Value, thoroughly enjoyed it”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

My wife and I just ate at Ni Neu for lunch yesterday and loved it. Considering we were at Arzak the night before for their tasting menu my wallet was pretty beat up. We loved Arzak but going to Ni Neu for their $25 euro lunch that included three courses, bottle of water and a glass of wine we were thoroughly impressed. The room is bright with lots of windows, not really a water view but the natural light was great. Appetizers we chose were a warm gnocchi salad and a pan fried rice with deboned chicken wings. The salad had probably 15 different ingredients, was light and the dressing was amazing. The rice had a crispy outside and a hint of saffron. It was folded over like an omlette and tasted wonderful. Next we had crab and hake, again both dishes were beautifully seasoned and tasty. Dessert was the best french toast we have ever had with ice cream and a moka dessert with cotton candy. Most of the service staff looked very young, all under 25 but very welled trained and friendly. Our server spoke English well and even when one of the servers that dropped off one of our courses didn't speak English he was very quick to get the answer to the question we asked. It is casual dining in there at lunch and for 25 euro it was a steal. We highly recommend Ni Neu. We made reservations and it was full so I suggest if you want to go to do the same.

“A good alternative on the beach”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

After reading great reviews of Ni Neu and having had a less than memorable meal across the esplanade, we strolled in late one afternoon. Glad we did. Inventive menu and great service as well as cold cerveza made for a great late lunch.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had lunch here, the 3 course lunch for about €25 each, including wine and mineral water. With extras (coffee, cocktail, slightly more expensive entree), the total came to €68.
The food was delicious, the restaurant was lovely, and the staff spoke a little English. They have English menus. My husband had tuna tartare with gazpacho, entree of tuna on a roasted garbanzo hazelnut purée that was delicious, and French toast with a yummy burnt sugar coating. I had beef carpaccio with idiazabal cheese, and smoked watermelon. The watermelon looked like a piece of beef and was very fresh. My entree was hake in a delicious jus, and dessert was marinated strawberries with mascarpone and beet root sponge. The colors were beautiful and the slightly salty strawberries were delicious.

The house white was quite good, light, crisp, and we had espresso with some tiny sweets. One buttery, nutty, one crisp, chocolate and what I imagine to be a homemade marshmallow, served in a wooden box.

All in all, delicious and reasonable.
