The restaurant still serves to preserve the rich history of that place while maintaining the serene, amazing atmosphere of Dubrovnik’s reign as a country. Nautika Restaurant, in 2008, was named one of the best romantic restaurants worldwide (6th) by the top-rated and respected magazine Condé Nast Traveller. Also, it hosted Saint Paul II on 6th June 2003, what an honour!

The restaurant has an experienced chief chef, Mario Bunda, who leads a team of chefs responsible for offering mouth-watering dishes from delicacies from the Adriatic's local waters to lobster from Vis, Dalmatian island.
The Nautika Restaurant is proud of its services that involve transforming something beautiful into something exceptional. The chef’s work is simple: to make diners happy and begins just as that of Mother Nature (the craftsmen) ends. This amazing restaurant is principled in combining quality, tradition and creativity by offering a refined, innovative style of Mediterranean cuisine.
In everything that Nautika does, it always tries to go natural and local, from people farming the vegetables to seafood suppliers. Therefore, suppliers can be seen down in the Dubrovnik harbour getting the fresh catch from the local fishermen.
