Excellent small dishes. We loved the salmon pasta and the tuna wrapped in holy leaf. For dessert the chocolate cenote was very clever and delicious.
Nau is my absolute favourite restaurant in Playa. Outstanding food quality and reasonable prices with friendly staff and a beautiful ambience in the room where the pleasant caribbean breeze always blows freely. Thank you so much!! we'll be back :)
Muy buena comida.
Our server Thomas was excellent. Attentive and professional. Also very personable.
Food was also excellent and presentation was too.
We will be back here soon. Hopefully really soon.
They did not have fish as part of the selection and I’m allergic to shellfish. The service by Tomas was excellent. The food that the rest of the party had very enjoyable. Do not recommend for kids
Great food. The steak, lobster risotto, octopus, chicken were all delicious. I'd rate them as outstanding but they have too limited a selection of good, reasonably priced wines by the glass or the bottle and the desserts aren't up to the same standard of creativity and great taste as their tapas and entrees.
El servicio es desorganizado y lento, la calidad de los platos es dispareja. El pulpo estuvo muy duro, el pescado bien sin ser sobresaliente. El trabajo de bar es lo más destacado.
excellent food and service
The seafood here is incredible. We’ve been coming to the Yucatán for almost 20 years, and this was the best meal we’ve had in our travels here. Pedro is a very gracious host!
The food was excellent. Very efficient and attentive staff.
Me sorprendió el excelente sabor de la comida; muy recomendable para deleitar el paladar cuando pases por Playa del Carmen.... Te recomiendo ir fresquito, es decir, ligero y cómodo ya que el único detalle es que es un restaurante "al aire libre" y bueno pasarás un poco de calor, pero es un buen pretexto para hidratarse con una bebida de la carta de Gin`s...
Excelente lugar, cocina buena , diversidad de platillos. Recomendable el arroz con mariscos
We LOVED our anniversary meal at Nad! Staff was great, we were never wanting yet never felt rushed. The freshest seafood in Playa that we have had. Our grilled red snapper and grilled octopus were both cooked perfectly. The prices are great for fresh seafood and there are plenty of options whether you want to splurge or select less expensive options. We will be back!
This is a great place , very true to Mediterranean Cousine food is very well prepared and presented and service very good. The bar offers a wide selection of Gin an delivers every drink spotless. Desert just delicious. We will come back to this gem.
Great little spot with some creative offerings. Everyone working there ensured my evening was enjoyable, thank you guys!
Definitively the best restaurant in Playa del Carmen. Food and atmosphere are in sync for a memorable dinner
The best Risotto I have had in a long while
Good service away from the noise of the Main Streets
Excellent local lobster and fresh fish, expertly de-boned tableside, at a moderate price point. Premium cocktails prepared with fresh fruit and juices complement a vast array of Gin and artisinal tonics. Super staff. A top choice for Playa Carmen.
El trio de tartares muy bueno. Gran carta de ginebras
While the service was great I am not sure how this place is getting high reviews. The food was of very low quality although they charge exorbitant prices compared to other playa restaurants.
Very nice and friendly service. Super ambiente and cool location. Quite expensive, but for the food it's totally worth it! Catch of the day and salmon have been delicious - the asparagus was a perfect starter. Totally recommended!
This was a new find for us, and we fell in love with Nau. A small restaurant off of 5th Ave, with great food and drink options. They specialize in gin drinks. For starters we had the mussels. They, and the sauce, were delicious. We shared a lobster...wonderful. Going back to try the lobster soup. I think this will become a regular stop on our next trips to Playa.
Excellent service, amazing food. Short but very good wine selection. Best cocktails around 5th Ave
Very fresh seafood, excellent ribeye, cenote and passion fruit desert is a killer.
La comida muy buena, los platillos bien logrados en sabor y presentación.
El ambiente agradable y tranquilo.
Very good gin cocktails but food was mediocre and there are much better options in Playa.
Great fresh seafood spot 2 blocks away from the loud hustle bustle of 5th Ave. Delicious in every way. Quite enough to have a conversation.
Estuvimos 1 semana en Playa del Carmen y 3 veces cenamos en NAU, por mucho el mejor restaurante en playa, felicidades es verdaderamente un placer haber podido estar 3 veces y comer cada día platillos diferentes con la misma calidad y sabor, servicio EXTRAORDINARIO, el lugar muy bonito y acogedor, el personal SÚPER amable y las recomendaciones son buenísimas, es la segunda vez que en 1 semana de vacaciones vamos más de 1 vez al mismo restaurante y este sin duda valió las 3 visitas 🙌🏻🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻
We had such a wonderful dining experience here for our 5th anniversary. We ordered the patatas bravas shots (highly recommend), the lobster and scallop risotto (also highly recommend) to share as starters, and the seafood platter to share for our entree, which were all fantastic. The seafood platter came with an octopus ceviche which was on point. They have a special Gin and Tonic menu, and from there we ordered the Old Bols (juniper, pomegranate and lemon) and the Malinche Oliver (hibiscus and serrano) and both were very good and generous servings.Our waiter was helpful, attentive and very polite. He even arranged for a special dessert on the house when he found out it was our anniversary, which was delicious! It had goat cheese cake, passion fruit sauce, a red fruits sauce, bites of vanilla cake, fruit, chocolate pieces and chocolate ganache. We would love to come back again!
My family goes to Playa del Carmen fairly frequently, and NAU is easily the best meal any of us have ever had in this town. Food is phenomenal, staff is great, it's right across from city hall so gorgeous views, and the ambiance inside the restaurant is so beautiful and serene; I can't recommend this place enough!
Extraordinario restaurante, la comida fresca deliciosa, el sazón y combinación de elementos con la que lo hacen son supremos los mejores ostiones que he comido, hemos ido en estas vacaciones 2 veces y creo volveremos mínimo una vez más las 2 veces nos encanto y siempre tienen un platillo diferente dependiendo lo que ese mismo día traen del mar, no hay ni un solo error o pero que poner, el servicio, lugar y comida son extraordinarios , pudiéramos cenar diario en el NAU, y lo calificó como el mejor en Playa del Carmen
Simply one of the best in playa!
Great fresh seafood (mixed grill) simple preparation. Menu is short.
The food and wine selection was awesome and the service was outstanding. 5-stars all the way.
The whole meal was amazing. Went for my birthday. Lobster was the best we ever had . Owner brought complimentary cheecake. I an gluten free and he was very accommodating. Will go again while we are here visiting Playa
Everything was great, the staff went over and above. The food quality was top-tier.
It was very enjoyable to get a few blocks off fifth Avenue for a few hours.
Un buen menú, bebidas muy bien preparadas, sin.embargo en cuestión de sabores en los diferentes platillos esperaba un poco más.
Not so hidden gem - always surprised there aren’tmore People here (though happy to have choice of seats). Food is fresh, tasty and well presented plus attentive service.
It’s on our list every time we get to Playa!
Best fresh seafood in Playa del Carmen and probably for most anywhere in the world . Great unique dishes, fabulous service , really good drinks and has become top on my list when I go here. Nothing like their fresh red snapper!!
No rush, creative seafood with a selection of beef on the menu.
I don't know why more people don't make their way off the Fifth Avenue strip to dine at a place like this. The potato shots, calamari and mussels were a great start to the meal. Grilled octopus, salmon and the red snapper catch of the day were all tasty and fresh. A word of warning though, if you're having the catch of the day you're having the whole fish which equated to almost 2 pounds of fish per serving. Best to share unless you have a real appetite. We also had fun trying a number of different gin and tonic options available. Highly recommended
