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.

We booked a table in the terrace however when we arrived the weather turned windy and we were given indoor table. Once the weather again got better, they gave us a table at the smaller terrace with great view and more intimate seating area. We both had 7 course tasting menu which I can highly recommend. Food was of great taste and quality, the service was excellent. Our waiter was very professional perfectly explaining each dish as well as the pairing olive oils in very detailed way. We had GRK Bire white wine which was superb companion with the 7 course tasting menu. Will definitely come back to this place!

We entered restaurant Nautica with a lot of joy, looking forward to what we though was going to be a near Michelin Star dinner. Well I must say it wasn't, not even close.
This restaurant is full of people who lost grip with reality, thinking they are the finest restaurant (according to their advertisement), but in real life they belong to the middle class.

I don't like to right negative stuff, but this restaurant is so overpriced against other great restaurants in Croatia, that I like to add a little review.

So some details: food not coked perfectly, wine pairing with different kind of menu's same wines and both not matching at all. Where the wine is great, with the food it brings both food and wine down. The food is not up to standards. Can go in a lot of details, but I think that's not fair.

So in short: Superb location! Arrogant service and average food. Price/quality disastrous

The setting of Nautika is truly special. We dined overlooking the sea and the ancient architecture. Service and food were excellent. I recommend to go early and be there for sunset followed by the stars and moon coming out.

This restaurant is a must for anyone wanting a truly 'fine dine' experience. The food is exquisite; quality, taste, presentation. The waiter service is excellent; knowledgeable, courteous, very smartly dressed. We had the lobster and chocolate desert accompanied by a beautiful rose wine which the waiter recommended. All the tables are lovely but book well in advance to get a table overlooking the sea. A wonderful evening meal - thank you to all staff at the Nautika.
