Beautiful view

We came here for my mom's birthday. The place was really nice and the service and food good. It's worthwhile to make a reservation well in advance, especially if you want to get an outdoor table closer to the sea!

During my stay in Dubrovnik I visited Nautika at least 5 times. First I wanted to stop by only for a quick beer but enjoyed the athmosphere there, so I visited there almost daily. They provide good service and good steaks.

My husband and I visited Nautika whilst on honeymoon in Dubrovnik. We selected the 7 course tasting menu, which was around £80 per person, so it is a more expensive venue but is definitely fine dining. The setting was just beautiful and I was provided with a fleece blanket for when the evening became chillier, which was a great touch.... More

I will be honest, I was kind of expecting a tourist trap when we went to Nautika Restaurant in Dubrovnik. The amount of marketing done, just the whole vibe of the thing (from the airport to the actual inner city you will have seen the name somewhere) but it lives up the hype. It is not fine dining per se... More

Elegant dinner. Delicious food. Delightful wine. Exceptional Service. Glorious view. Nautika is frequently cited as the best restaurant in Dubrovnik for a reason. We dined "al fresco" in mid-October. Servers provided us with a light blanket/throw to use if we felt a chill, and portable heaters we're quickly arranged for each table so diners could enjoy the meal in comfort... More

Location is perfect and the restaurant itself delivers the best experience you can get in Dubrovnik - the food and the service are top notch! It is an expensive place for Croatian standards but here you pay for the best quality.
