I've always heard many great reviews about nautilus and it really lives up to the hype. It's always been a bit too pricey for me but my boyfriend surprised me for my birthday and I can say I was definitely blown away. The little path up feels so magical like I'm walking to a secret garden and then I became... More

My husband & I had the 7 course degustation without the wines. It was 10 out of 10. The restaurant ambiance is to be experienced. Quiet & private. Staff were excellent and happy to explain all the wonderful dishes.

My husband and I visited here last Friday. It was the last night of our vacation and we wanted to go somewhere really special. The atmosphere is amazing, there was no doubt about that. The service was also impeccable. However, for me that is where it ends. This is an expensive restaurant and I expect a certain level of quality... More

It's the Iconic Restaurant in North Qld. The setting, right from the moment you walk in, up the long entrance way, makes you feel good and sets the mood for the evening. The ambience is perfect, hard to fault, and the service was exceptional. Food was also nice but getting expensive for 3 courses.

We came here on the recommendation of a friend and we're not disappointed. Staff were fantastic. We had pre dinner drinks. My husband had the five course degustation menu whilst I selected an entree and main. Duck dumplings were awesome. Tasty but light. My husband loved the jungle curry and mud crab. We shared the pineapple bomb Alaska which was... More

Food, terrific. We shared (fortunately), a pork belly and scallop entree. My wife had the fish fillet of the day, me, the Jungle Curry. A shared souffle to finish and we almost rolled out of the absolutely beautiful tropical paradise which is the restaurant. Our waiter was a delight, and all in all, a special night for our anniversary. Not... More

We visited last night and ordered from the al la carte menu. The jungle curry was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Full of seafood and great flavours- it was absolutely delicious. The mango soufflé was also just delightful! The staff were fantastic, very attentive yet not intrusive and the ambience was beautiful. Loved the outdoor rainforest... More

Fabulous menu and great atmosphere in this fine dining restaurant in Port Douglas. We had a delightful 7 course degustation menu dinner, with matching wine, every course was excellent and well paired.

A really enjoyable night with sensational food, wine, atmosphere and service. We had the 5 course degustation menu with wine pairing and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys great flavours and prefect pairings. They were also more than happy to accommodate a few food allergies and pregnancy menu changes. Can't wait for another special occasion to celebrate there!
