The epitome of Adriatic elegance
Perched on the walled entrance to Dubrovnik’s enchanting Old City, Nautika has a prime location amongst ancient architecture that perfectly complements the superb cuisine and dazzling seascapes.
Voted one of the most romantic restaurants in the world, Nautika’s setting is endlessly beautiful. Diners can immerse themselves in the vistas over the crystal-clear ocean sparkling in the sunshine, and admire the 16h century citadel of Lovrijenac standing tall on a rocky outcrop opposite the venue.
Superyachts dot the horizon as well, as Nautika is invariably popular amongst those undertaking luxury yacht charters in Croatia. The menu reflects the restaurant's clientele, with a strong focus on catch-fresh spoils from local fishermen and a refined take on Mediterranean gastronomy.
Menu favourites include sea bass fillet laced in vanilla cream and Dalmatian-style lamb with purple cabbage and zingy onion marmalade.
Spoilt for choice
Diners can immerse themselves in the vistas over the crystal-clear ocean sparkling in the sunshine.
While Nautika restaurant is the principle eatery, the Nautika Collection is an umbrella of upscale venues scattered through Dubrovnik. If you are visiting the city and choose to take the cable car up into the hills, you will stumble upon Panorama, a restaurant and bar named after the stunning views it affords.
Panorama has a more laid-back feeling than its sister establishment, with menu entries including light lunches, Mediterranean sharing platters, and of course, a fine range of Dalmatian wines and cocktails.
For a casual dining scene, Nautika offers Dubravka 1836, which has the same prime waterfront location as the original, with a focus on comforting classics and staple dishes. Meanwhile, closer to the in the heart of the Old City, yacht-goers in need of a coffee and pick-me-up should head for Gradska Kavana, with its wide-ranging menu and sterling selection of hot and cold beverages.
