Little Pricey but Good food with good quality

I've eaten here twice while I've been living in Belfast. The first time I had the seafood combo platter and it was beyond delicious! I ate every bit of the meal, and we were able to set out on the deck which was extremely nice. Our waitress for this meal wasn't very good but she still took okay... read more

We found this place by chance, just driving past and thought we'd give it a try. So glad we did. The start is the view, it's just beautiful, would have so loved to sit there but it was a damp day so....The food made up for the damp day! Lovely menu, served by such a lovely server who clearly enjoys... More

We ate late so we were not able to enjoy the view but we did enjoy the service and food. I tried the seafood pie and found it to be loaded with seafood. My wife was very pleased with her seafood chowder and scallops. We would recommend this restaurant and would eat there again.

Nautilus just outside of East Belfast on route 1 is a real seafood restaurant. Very close to the Yankee Clipper Motel. Great and attentive waiter. We dined there twice, one with lobsters only, they were GOOD and one time with steak, could not be better.

Passing thru on way home, staying in belfast we tried the nautilus, very glad we did. Our waitress Doreen was one of the best attentive servers ever, as soon as we were seated she brought water followed by rolls and continually refilled water and watched over us. Wife had the crab cakes, three nice size with real mashed and snow... More

Have dined here before but the food did not live up to a previous visit. Generally fairly bland and slightly overcooked seafood (baked haddock and fish and chips). Our waiter was wonderful, great sense of humour and vary attentive. Would have preferred a booth to being seated in the middle of the room next to the kitchen. The place was... More

We ate two successive nights here. We were staying at the Belfast Harbor Inn next door so it was much easier after a day out in the car to just walk next door and it always looked busy which is a good sign. We were not disappointed, hence the return the second night, Combination over the 2 nights of crab... More
