We hadn't heard of Nautilus so really had no expectations. Dinner was a gift for my 40th birthday. They gave us a special private table in the corner with a beautiful outlook over the courtyard. We had already decided to have the 7 course tasting menu but the a la carte menu was expertly described to us. The food was perfect. Great balances of texture and flavour. A little adventurous without being over the top. The timing was right too and we were offered a break after course 5. If we had to be critical we would say that it was a bit pointless to charge $3.50 extra to swap dessert for a souffle when the meal is already $115 per head. We probably could have also gone with 5 courses but the 7 course menu was vastly different (and better in our opinion). We have also had meals in the past where the heavier final courses leave you feeling too full or heavy but this definitely wasn't the case here.
I have looked at a few reviews here and am surprised to see so many negative ones. I guess every place can have a bad night. There's also a lot of foreigner servers (being an international holiday resort) but for us that just added to the vibrancy of the evening. Our waiter was a bit nervous be he tried really hard was speaking his second language after all. Hats off!
All in all a fabulous, memorable occasion. Highly recommended.
