My beautiful wife and I have traveled through Europe and Australia. We would consider ourselves good judges of quality, in food.

Any body who visits Raratonga MUST have dinner at the Nautilus...

SERIOUSLY, we sat speechless, for minutes, after finishing our dessert. The flavors, the textures, the olfactory excellence was just astounding. And not only was it absolutely delicious, it looked fantastic...

Our meal cam with matched wine for entree and main, we had coffee, one of the best I had on the island...

What did it cost ...? I hear you ask...

$65/head.... SHUT UP! yes... $65 per head...

This menu was a competition menu and I am sure if they do not win... I will be flying back to have dinner at the winning restaurant... with out a doubt!

The food and service was not what one would expect for a high class (or attempted high class) establishment to be.

We dined at the Nautilus on the last night of our 8 day holiday. We chose a competition menu. The food was visually stunning and tastes were divine. The wine matches and liquor with dessert were a wonderful accompaniment. The service was great with opportunity for questions about each of the menu items. Make this restaurant your first stop you wont be disappointed.
