We went with out of town visitors to the nautilus restaurant down by the Tauranga Marina, and we had the most delicious meal. The service was very good and we felt very proud to show our friends how lovely it is to live in this nice city.

We were disappointed with our lunch, we had the Caesar Salad and the lettuce was old and tired, egg was poorly done with all the squidgy white still attached, service was lacking. Breakfast ended at 12.00 or we would have had eggs benedict.

I have not been to this cafe previously. The food was excellent value (especially as we had a GrabOne voucher). The service was friendly and helpful; the coffee was good; the menu was varied with plenty of selection. I would certainly go back. It must be lovely on a sunny day when the outdoors seating area can be used (we... More

WOW, were we so wrong. My wife and I had a Grab One voucher given to us by our children. We went Saturday night (24/9/16) and from the first moment walking through the door we were greeted by a very nice young lady. The menu was explained to us in full and the specials they had for the night. The... More

It has been our... More

Recently my husband and I decided to have a relaxing lunch at Nautilus. We waited until after 1.00pm as we dont like busy restaurants. There was a cool breeze blowing so we opted to sit inside and chose a table by the window. The view was very refreshing and the sun shone in and warmed us up. The wait staff... More
