The food is always exceptional and the welcome never disappoints. Last night we again enjoyed a fabulous Nautilus experience. The Hors d'oeuvres platter was delicious, the steaks mouthwatering and the wine lovely. The location: right on the water with a view of the sunset. Perfect.

Great fresh food. Seefoodplatter was among the best I have ever had.The tunafish entree was perfectly portioned and simple, but deliciously seasoned. No extra spices needed.The prawn dish looked especialy enticing. Desserts were tasty. The Restaurant was busy but I was immediatly welcomed by Lesly and Pietro as soon as i walked in! Visited may 2014 Don`t miss this place

I cannot remember name what i ordered but i remember it was tasty,the fish was beautifully cooked and rich in butter (I verified that it was butter and not margarine)! The steak had an aura of freshness and was succulent and well marinated! Do not expect to get soft drinks(no Colas), only hard drinks and juices. It is well hidden... More

The location on kilifi creek is amazing. At night the restaurant is lit up like a Christmas tree proving a very good ambience to eat in. The menu is extensive and all cooked to order. The platter of a bit of everything is a meal on its own. Even with two of us sharing we could not finish the plate.... More

We expected this to be really good, but I am afraid it wasn't. Maybe because the owners were not present. I ordered a Brie Gratin which was cold! that came with a luke warm rosti. For mains I ordered fillet steak , which I asked to be rare - it was well done, chewy & sinewy,and the accompanying vegetables were... More

A group of friends and I went for lunch, from the ambiance to the food and good service, and a very friendly owner,I could not fault this place at all! Highly recommended if you are in Kilifi, or even in a neighboring town, this place is worth the journey! Thumbs up guys!

Nautilus was magical....starting from our warm welcome at the dock to our delicious fresh oysters and sauvignon blanc followed by jumbo prawns and crab flambe and then complimentary limoncello topped off with fresh passion fruit sorbet with vodka - everything was superb! Can't wait to return :-)

We stopped there for lunch whilst driving from Arusha to Malindi for Easter. We were made very welcome and had the most delicious lunch...we will definitely be back. The staff were great and could not have been more accommodating with my 4 year old daughter.

We ate here twice whilst on our honeymoon and had a fabulous meal both times. The Fillet Steak was unbelievable and the seafood delicious. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and brilliant hosts. The second night we dined on the boat which was just perfect and a lovely end to our honeymoon! Thank you to everyone at Nautilus - definitely a... More
