A group of eight of us dined in this fine restaurants. The service was very professional and unobtrusive. My meal was very well presented and tasted just as good. I would go back.

A hidden treasure, but a bit of a hike with an uneven surface to get up to this restaurant. 3 course dinner was beautiful and the atmosphere was amazing, but lacked any entertainment e.g. music etc.

This is the third time I have been to the restaurant, this time with a group of 14 and it was just as good as dining for 2. The food is amazing, the wine perfectly matched and the service, professional and entertaining.

As a special treat, I'd highly recommend this spot. Sensational food and atmosphere. Not for young kids or the rowdy group . Expensive but worth it.

Eating at Nautilus is like entering another world. The setting is so very beautiful. We had the degustation menu and every course was superb. The staff were first rate. This is a place for that special night

Superb food, wonderful ambiance and great staff. I could have eaten one of everything on the menu - it was very difficult to make a choice as so much was so desirable. It's one of my Top 3 in Port Douglas and we try to make sure we eat here whenever we're in the region.
