“started well but dissappointing in the end”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

we thought this was a nice place to finish off our recent holiday, when we arrived nobody really came to say hi but we waited and ended up getting a lovely table and given menus, it took a while to get our order taken but the ambiance was nice so all was good, my husband and i ordered the paella and the other 2 in our party ordered as well. the food arrived and was well presented and tasted well. we then had to wait for our plates to be cleared and sweet menus. again our order was taken and about 10 mins later 3 sweets arrived mine apparently had sold out but i was not offered anything else and would have had to eat on mine own as everyone elses was already on the table. the view from the restaurant are breathtaking but the service leaves alot to think about.

“Only visit if you have small children or a dog with ribbons in it's hair.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Went for lunch whilst on holiday and have been here a few times. My husband and I sat for over twenty minutes no one aknowledge us. One waitress walked passed us four times, she was more interested in the family who came in after us and had small children with them and the lady who had a small dog with her and with ribbons in it's hair. There were two waitress's and two waiters serving further down the restaurant but only one at the the top. After being ingnored for so long we decide to go somewhere else.I am sorry to say that next time in Spain we will not be visiting Nautilus.

“Could so easily be fantastic but sadly not!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I have reviewed Puccini's and it was an excellent restaurant in an average location, this is the opposite and it is a waste of a great location. The service is less than adequate and I speak Spanish and overheard the manager to quickly serve a couple coffee to get them out so they could re-use the table. It amused me that the English couple sat for hours chatting, and not having coffee!!!

They have made the terrace a chill out area but the play the most awful music.... attention to detail Guys!

They offer secure parking and Wi-Fi that never works!! I asked why the Wi Fi was not working and they said "this is Spain, nothing works, not even the Prime Minister, OK?"

If you just want a drink by the sea and you don't mind poor music it is OK don't have great expectations if you are planning to eat!!!
