Type of Cuisine: Five Star Provincial Tropical Australian Cuisine
Description: A symbol of Port Douglas, the Nautilus Restaurant is 56 years old and is famous for its five star cuisine and five star service.
The menu was originally and still is today developed around the natural flavours of the tropics.
Some of the signature dishes including the whole coral trout were first sampled in the 1970’s by many famous diners including Sir Lawrence Olivier, Vivian Leigh, Rupert Murdoch, Gough Whitlam and Paul Hogan. In 1996, even Bill and Hilary Clinton tasted the tropical delights on offer.
Nautilus Restaurant Port Douglas is committed to providing every guest with an intimate, elegant tropical outdoor dining experience.
The unique ambiance of the restaurant is in part a result of the towering coconut palms, where the fronds and stars provide the only ceiling to speak of.
