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.

Nautika has got to be the most exquisite dining experience.

From greeting to service to food they performed to perfection.

The crisp white tablecloth to the velour under cloth added a touch of class.

The service of food and drinks was a precision team performance. Well choreographed. What I really enjoyed which is lacking in service across the country is they were able to bring their personality with them. They smiled, chatted and above all were engaged, focused and enjoyed their work.

The food was presented with sheer elegance and style. The menu was extremely well put together and the combination of flavours, colours and local ingredients sets this dining experience apart from any other place.

Do yourself a favour and order a gin.... another choreographed presentation in itself and the gin was divine.

The venue is so elegant with stunning views.

We had high hopes for our visit to Nautika and overall we were not disappointed. The service was very good and attentive, we were very grateful that the staff made such an effort when they realised one of our party was celebrating a special birthday.
Our food was delicious and we enjoyed the wine selection.
The entrance terrace proved to be an excellent seating position.
It is very expensive, however I would say it is worth its price for an all round dining experience. It is not often I would pay so much, but we had a great time.

Thank Charlie S

On Saturday 15th September, I visited and enquired if a table for two was available. I was informed by a female member of staff that none were available. I therefore made a reservation for Monday evening, 17th September at 19.30. The member of staff took my details and mobile number. She said she would telephone me prior to my reservation. Needless to say, I did not receive the call. What very unprofessional service. You have let yourselves down very badly and therefore not as good as you claim to be. Shame upon you Nautika.

Four of us went for a special evening out for my birthday and the whole experience was amazing.

The minute you walked in they made you feel special. Staff were so helpful and knowledgeable.

Food was delicious and even though we weren’t on the main terrace it was still a lovely table.

I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, it’s pricey so perfect for a special occasion.

The waiters even sang happy birthday to me.

A truly wonderful experience.

I knew to expect a fine dining experience but I was honestly blown away by the service at this restaurant. Treat yourself! Nautika is absolutely worth it. You need to make a reservation at least several days ahead of time, especially if you want a table on the terrace (which you do! You really do!) I got a table on the terrace at 18:00, with sunset just after 19:00 and it couldn't have been more perfect watching the colors of the sky change over the water as I ate. Besides the location, the food was exquisite and the service exceptional. It was one of the best meals I've ever had, truly!
