Nautilus had been highly recommended by friends who suggested that we would need to book well in advance. For a number of reasons we did not book before arriving in Port Douglas and when we arrived we rang on the off chance of getting a table. The receptionist was very accommodating and managed to find us a table a couple of nights later.

We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff were very efficient and without doubt the most professional that we had in our three weeks in Far North Queensland. The menu choices had something for everyone and the wine list was excellent.

The ambience was wonderful, sitting in what was effectively a tropical garden.

We would highly recommend Nautilus to visitors to Port Douglas.

Hard to encapsulate everything about Nautilus. It seems a bit outre at first, but it delivers in ambience and food. A very comfortable arrangement of seating among tropical greenery which accommodates a lot of people but avoids any feeling of crowding or encroachment. Service was efficient and attentive and the kitchen delivered in presentation and taste. All up, a marvellous and unforgettable experience for our large party.

Really lovely ambiance and food to match. The service was also the best that we had on our holiday (young belgian lady). We had the seafood plate and I would highly recommend.

We had dined at Nautilus many years ago and absolutely loved it. When in Port Douglas recently we decided to return to see if it was still as we remembered. I am delighted to write that our dining experience was everything we had hoped and more. The setting is truly magical and the food sensational. The quality of produce and the respect with which it is treated is second to none. Front of house is also fantastic. They were attentive but not pushy. Nautilus remains one of our great dining highlights and is a "must do" when in Port Douglas.

We had a most delightful evening at Nautilus on Friday July 4th. The table was excellent, food superb (we had the 7 Course Degustation Menu) and we had the most wonderful experience thanks to our very attentive, personable and knowledgeable waiter in Ben (Benedict). He has certainly mastered the Hospitality Scene and was responsible for completing a most wonderful dining experience.
Nautilus is exceptional – the full package !!!
We have already started recommending Nautilus to our friends, as a ‘must’ when they next visit / dine in Port Douglas.
Fine dining at its best, in such an idyllic setting !!!
Thank you for an evening that will be remembered and treasured by my wife and I, as one of our best dining experiences.
...... We will return !!!
