This Santa Catalina restaurant’s name means ‘light, vitality, and new beginnings’ in Swahili and is appropriate for a place that opened in March 2015. The premises were formerly the home of APTC restaurant but have a super-stylish contemporary new look – with many items sourced from SYZYGY Interior Concept Store in the same street.

Nuru offers 60 covers, with an upper floor and chill-out roof terrace. We love the art, by famous Spanish Hollywood actor Jordí Mollá. We love the warm welcome, relaxed ambience, excellent service – and views into the kitchen. We love the food even more!!
The contemporary fusion cuisine is under the control of Santa Catalina-born chef Chus (real name Jesús Pérez de la Fuente). His experience includes Mallorca’s former Plat d’Or and Porto Pi restaurants, but also the renowned El Bulli, Arzak, and Nobu (London) restaurants.
No wonder his cuisine is better than probably 90 per cent of restaurants in Palma. High-quality fresh seasonal ingredients, real flavour, and Asian influences are important elements; hot plates for hot food too. Starters are for sharing; we tried the vegetarian citrus and beetroot salad, and flavourful duck and foie gyozas.
Our stand-out main course was the meltingly tender and richly flavoured Korean BBQ-style Hereford rib, which had been cooked at a low temperature for 20 hours.
Save room for dessert: we enjoyed both the peanut butter mousse (very moreish) and chocolate coulant with green tea ice cream.
The wine list includes Mallorcan and other interesting wines, and choice of house wines by glass.
