Delicious food

I was really sad when I heard about the fire and I am hoping they will re-open soon. This is a small restaurant with simple, bright interior, I love the bay window with lovely view of Marina. The food is always delicious and modern with a twist, on a fancy side. I've been there 3-4 times and... read more

With a couple of colleagues visiting Malahide we selected Nautilus for the dinner. Afterwards not the best choice of the day. Didn't like the atmosphere and the service wasn't good. The food was okay though. For me no return please. ..

Really excellent restaurant, you really get that wow factor when the food arrives, looks amazing, you can really see the level of effort and love that the chef gives to the food! Taste definitely doesn't disappoint either, really was an incredible meal. Staff were friendly and service was good, happy all around. Will definitely return.

Recently went with friends here and had just an amazing meal, we were having a re-union and they were stunned with the look and ambiance of the restaurant and not diappointed in the food. I was not surprised it is my special Go To restaurant - so inventive on food, presentation, and from the first moment you sit down and... More

Me and my friend went here for a treat and we weren't disappointed. The soup and fishes were the best I've ever eaten. The great view, ambient and service only added to the overall great feeling. It's not cheap but it's totally worth it!

Simply wonderful dining experience in Malahide. The welcome, service and beautiful view of Malahide marina all add to a really enjoyable night out. Every dish was cooked to perfection and was presented so artistically that it was nearly a shame to disturb them by eating them! We have now been there on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Would... More

Had my birthday dinner in Nautilus. As it tends to be expensive, it is somewhere I save as a treat. Food was excellent. Beautiful presentation. The strawberry dessert was really to my taste and memorable! Friendly waitress who managed to get the balance between efficient and allowing us time absolutely perfect.
