Nauta is THE VERY BEST Restaurant in Stari Grad, trust me! I do not often write recommendations/ reviews on Tripadvisor - but Nauta just deserved this review so much, I will take the time to write this! We (German couple in their early 30s) have...been there two times during our two week vacation in August 2021, once as a couple and a week later the second time with our friends (5 people in total, all Germans and one Portuguese), both times EVERYBODY was not just happy but AMAZED by the entire Restaurant! We even recommended Nauta to some new friends we met at the hotel (parents with two kids 10 & 14 years old) and later they texted us "thanks so much for the recommendation, Nauta was definitely THE BEST restaurant we visited in Stari Grad". The FOOD: Was so delicious (several different, recommended dishes), the first time we shared the "Fish Plate" and it was super great awesome good, can't describe how good it was! The second time, we all had different dishes and we all shared and tasted off of everbody's plates - it was just fingerlicking good, we were all so full and happy with our food! The SERVICE: Is super friendly and attentive, introduces himself without any stress and explains the different meals without even asking, just super friendly, calm and polite, we loved him! The second time he recommended me a special traditional Croatian dish with lamb and spices and a sauce I would like to bath in every day - just GREAT, can't describe it better! The "Chef Cook", who speaks at least perfect English, French and Croatian, came out of the open kitchen (pictures and "special requests" allowed and welcomed) and asked very nicely if everything was good, he even helped my clumsy fingers with cutting the fish the right way so we could enjoy the very best parts as it's supossed to be! The AMBIENTE: Is simply beautiful and amazing - you have to see it! They have gorgeous wine grapes hanging above you, you may pick some fresh grapes from your seat, it feels like a little Oasis compared to other busy restaurants at the Marina in Stari Grad. No, it's not right on the Marina, but just a few stairs up from the Marina which is very nice because it's much calmer than downstairs and you can really lay back, relax and stay out of the busy trouble you might find at some restaurant directly at the Marina... and YES - you can see the water from Nauta! Overall - 6 out of 5 points I may give this restaurant! We will be back! To the staff - thank you so much and all the best from Caroline & Victor from Germany, love you guys!More

Delicious dinner. Warm welcome, cute place, outside in a quiet street 50 m from the seashore, with trees and a fresh evening breeze. Fishes are excellent, and the waiter knows the wines to go with. All you can wait from a simple restaurant in this...wonderful town of Stari Grad.More

Nauta was one of our favorite dining experiences in Croatia. The service (Ivan and Sasha) was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We enjoyed delicious peka dishes, fresh fish, freshly baked bread and pizza better than any in NYC! It was tucked away from the harbor and...dining was open air under beautiful grape vines. There is a small play ground for children and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Well done and good luck to team Nauta!More

Just had such a lovely time at Nauta. The courtyard was beautiful and set the scene for a lovely evening. We both chose pizzas based on a impressive looking outdoor stonebake oven, they were amazing, as good as any we've had in Italy. Beers were...inexpensive and the waiter was such a lovely guy and really made our evening great. He even offered a complimentary shot of homemade grappa to finish. Fantastic meal, fantastic service probably the best meal we've had in Croatia.More

Really nice dinner on our last night in Stari Grad. Had a wonderful evening of food and wine. Started with the appetizer plate for two and a Greek salad, with a pizza for our main. Had the house red wine and everything was delicious and...very reasonably priced. A little bit off the beaten path, but worth the very short walk as their courtyard is stunning with beautiful landscaping and grapes even growing above.More

Last night I visited the restaurant Nauta with my girlfriend. It is a hidden gem in a narrow street, a little further from the main square. They warmly welcomed us and explained the whole menu. We choose their appetizer called "Plata Nauta" which was amazing....For the main course we had Fish Plate. The fish were fresh and beautifuly grilled!! Also, the waiter gave us a nice wine recommendation which went perfectly with the fish. Definitely one of the best restaurants we have been to so far. The food was great and they had very professional staff. Thank you for a great time!More

Delicious fish in a typical croatian location! Very typical mediterranean location, with a beautiful patio decorated with grapes and plants that makes the place look comfortable and warm. It has a wonderful fireplace where they cook pizza, delicious bread and great fish, which is fresh...and fished daily. The service is courteous, friendly and kind, and the price is honest for the quality products offered. We had a really nice dinner in a comfy natural environment.More
