Stumbled on this place while walking round Girona looking for somewhere to eat. It had only been open for about 10 minutes and we managed to get the last seat in the restaurant. The food was amazing, beautifully presented and well put together creating a taste sensation. The waiters were fantastic in that they went out of their way to explain some of the dishes, attentive to when we needed an alcoholic top up and generally making us feel welcome. I would definitely sit along the bench like seating area rather than on a table, you can watch the chefs dress the dishes and feel more involved.

We stumbled across this restaurant one night in Girona and got the last two seats in the bar. Booking recommended. Had the most amazing meal and chef-watching. Ask for the Burrata, not on the menu. Worth chatting to the chefs to ask about their specialities. Got great advice about wine and for the quality of food and service - very well priced.

Nu seems to be a combination of Catalan and Japanese cuisine. Probably worth a michelin star but pretty casual (plenty of walk-ins and kids eating) and not fussy or off-putting. Reasonable prices too (dinner for 2 with wine <€130) for such great food.

Lots of interesting food combinations, all excellent tasting rather than just experimental. Lots of seafood and delicate flavours.

A must for foodies, and a top class restaurant overall.

Had their 9 coarse tasting menu, every dish is a small piece of art, 47€ (cheap!)
Reasonbly priced wine; 4-5€ a glass (quite a lot to choose from, the waiter made up a wine menu with cava, white, red, sweet), about 20€ a bottle (unless, of course you´re interested in investing in a white grand cru burgundy or something like that...)
Highly recommended, this place is something special, Im sure they´ll have their first michelin star very soon!

We ate here recently in a small party and had a really bad experience. Not with the food, as that was quite nice, but with the extremely rude staff. We had two waitresses and from the start they were both very curt with us, shaking their heads and in general acting annoyed that we had even come into the restaurant. Our Spanish was not the best, so we had to ask a few times what things were (the waitresses wouldn't speak any English, which is of course fine), but then when one waitress walked away from the table, shook her head and muttered "idiota", loud enough for us to hear. Not what you would expect from a restaurant that bills itself as high class.
