Description: Nautika Restaurant lies on the very edge of the sea at Pile, alongside the entrance to Dubrovnik's Old City. From its unique terraces, diners can enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind view of the Adriatic and the fortresses of Lovrijenac and Bokar. The restaurant's chef, Mario Bunda, leads a team whose varied offerings include lobster from the Dalmatian island of Vis and delicacies from the local waters of the Adriatic. About the cousine: The chef's role begins where that of the craftsman, Mother Nature, ends. It consists of transforming something that is beautiful, by its very essence, into something exceptional.

If you would have forgotten what is the essence of fine dining, just go here!
This restaurant is just impecable: amazing food (3 michelin stars worthy) with perfect service.
After a way too busy visit to Dubrovnik, this restaurant is just the oasis of peace amd service you atlre looking for.
It is very expensive and you have to be well dressed or you won’t be seated but it is worth every penny, kuna or euro.
The food is extraordinary, the cocktails to die for and the service incredible. It has been a long time since I lived such an
amazing culinary experience!
This restaurant is what made my visit to Dubrovnik worth while.

My advise: save up, invent a special ocasion and go here!

The restaurant is located in front of the Pile gate overlooking the sea and old walls of thencity..the sunset is worth of every euro spend overhere because it is like the dream. If you have the option to go then go and get a table overhere. Offcorse the food isntasty and nice as you expect for the amount of money.

I have to admit than when we first saw the location (a short walk from the main entrance to the Pile Gate and main tourist collection area) we were a bit concerned; we even contemplated cancelling. But we are sure glad that we kept our reservation. From the moment we arrived the service and overall dining experience was exceptional. Nautika is clearly a restaurant that takes unbelievable pride in delivering a special experience to its guests; it's a level of service that's incredibly hard to execute from top to bottom. The food and wine list is as good as advertised; they do an amazing job with the scallop/potato/kale small plate and the flavors and richness of their shrimp and polenta dish is outstanding. Fresh fish availability was more diversified than in other high-end restaurants in Dubrovnik and we enjoyed trying a few things we hadn't seen on other menus.

After our exceptional meal we ventured into Old Town for a bit of shopping and quickly made our way back to Nautika for one last drink before heading back to our hotel. Even sitting in the lobby and listening to the piano player while sipping on Plavac Mali was a memorable experience. We will certainly be back on our next trip to Croatia.

We dined at Nautika during our recent stay in Dubrovnik and it didn’t disappoint. Having pre-booked which is wise to avoid disappointment, we were seated at a lovely table with views of the old town walls and the sea, and the service and quality of food and drink was excellent. We went for the 7 course tasting menu paired with wine from an extensive list, and very much enjoyed the food and the use of local ingredients, plus the knowledge that the waiters had of their origins. The atmosphere is relaxed but formal and they really take care of you, moving us to a different table after dinner so we could enjoy a different view and serving some fantastic complimentary Croatian digestifs (try the hazelnut liquor!) and coffee. It was lovely to dress up a little for the evening but it’s not pretentious - most people were in holiday dress but on the smarter side (shirt/polo t shirt and shorts/chinos for the men and summer dresses for the women). Not cheap - will set you back at least £300-350 depending on what you drink - but an absolute highlight of our holiday and would highly recommend.
