First time eating here

Food was good and nice selection. The waiter wasn't that attentive though. Took a long time to come back to our table after we said we needed a few more minutes to figure out what we wanted.

We were hoping to find some great seafood while visiting the Belfast area and this place was recommended by the hotel. The lady that seated us was very friendly. The waiter was slow to return after we told him we need a couple of minutes before ordering. Asked if we wanted bread and thought it would never arrive. Our food... More

I've been here quite a few times before and it never disappoints. The entire waitstaff, the menu, the daily specials as well as the food and service-Excellent Always! Local sourced and fresh ingredients as well as great specials along with the now summer menu, make this a must stop place if you're in the area.

I like Nautilus more and more every time I go. The restaurant has a nice, laid back atmosphere and the food is delicious. What more can you ask for?

Hands down the Nautilus's combination seafood dinner... More

We have eaten at Nautilus many many times, and each time, the food is fresh and delicious. The last two years we have gone for the Mother's Day brunch; three generations of mothers, husbands, small children, etc. We have been welcomed, served promptly, and made to feel special, and never rushed. ALL of the food has been excellent. We have... More

What a delightful evening spent here. Mussels to start along with wine and cocktails. May I suggest the blood orange cosmo? The main course offerings make the final choice difficult. May I suggest the baked halibut stuffed with crabmeat? Served like an elegant pot pie. Great cheesecake tops off the evening with some hot coffee. This is a must in... More

Food is excellently prepared, service fast but unobtrusive, and prices reasonable. We first visited Nautilus several years ago and it was just OK but it's much better now. I think they hired a new chef. I recently had the chicken portabella which was yummy and my husband had the burger which he thought was the best he's had in Belfast.... More
