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 first came across Nautika when we visited Dubrovnik on a day excursion in 2016, and were very upset to not have booked ahead to get a table!
We came back to visit Dubrovnik again this year and booked the table almost straight after our flights.
The restaurant does not disappoint - I had the beef main and chocolate dessert, both complemented with a wine recommended by our fantastic waiter (I think his name was Doug).
The food was absolutely gorgeous in both presentation and taste, and the service was exceptional - we were not rushed at all but also not left waiting at any point.
I highly recommend sitting along the wall of you can, where you have a lovely view across the sea... also, book ahead!
We will be visiting again :)

As a patron of many Michelin-starred restaurants around the world I am fortunate enough not to be unduly concerned about the cost of a meal. I did not approach my visit to Nautika with awe or any starry-eyed expectations but, in view of its history, thought that it must be on a par with one-star establishments. The initial amuse bouche was interesting, innovative and tasty, whilst the so-called "thick" shrimp soup was almost of consommé consistency. My wife and I decided on the sea bream with French fries and what was served was little more than mundane "fish and chips". The fish was of an acceptable standard but not what one would expect from a restaurant with such claims to gastronomic excellence. The wines were superb but, unsurprisingly, were not made by Nautika! Notwithstanding that the bill was less than I have been presented with in many restaurants, it was nonetheless ridiculously high vis a vis the overall quality of the meal. My next two reservations are at Proto and 360 Degrees and, hopefully, in the zeitgeist of 1997, "things can only get better".

We visited for our anniversary dinner, and we absolutely loved it! The setting and view was incredible, very romantic, and the food was to die for- I would recommend the scallops for starters. The staff were wonderful and attentive, yet at no point did it feel pretentious. I would definitely return.

We had an early booking for 6pm during our stay in Croatia and sat outside on the terrace next to a beautiful view of the old town.
The service was impeccable, with our waiters making suggestions for what we may like to eat and drink.
They bought out an amuse bouche of goats cheese and beetroot which was really lovely, then had our starters of seafood risotto which we said we could've eaten a huge bowl of. Absolutely delicious, the seafood tasted very fresh and portion size was perfect.
I had the fillet steak which was cooked medium/rare as requested, and very pleasant. Nothing to write home about but it was presented beautifully and again was a good portion size. My other half had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly and he said was really delicious.
We didn't have room for dessert but they kindly bought out some local liquor and chocolates which was a really nice touch and finished the meal off nicely.
We were absolutely shocked to see our bill come to the equivalent of nearly £200 when we'd only had one alcoholic drink and two courses each. Absolutely ridiculous price - we frequently dine in London's top restaurants and don't pay that much. It was a great meal but should've been nearer £120-140. Definitely not worth nearly £200, we're still in shock over it!!!

Great location outside the wall. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. The ambience, location and service will cost you, but in my humble opinion well worth the value.
