Nautilus Restaurant, Cafe & Wedding Venue, Tauranga

Come and enjoy superb waterfront dining and hospitality at Nautilus Restaurant, one of the finest restaurants, cafes, function and wedding venues Tauranga has to offer.

We offer a vibrant menu that accentuates the bounty of the sea. Prepared by award winning Executive Chef Maurice Mourali and his team, we offer deliciously fresh New Zealand cuisine, with a touch of Asia and the Mediterranean.

With a unique waterfront location, Nautilus is one of the few restaurants and wedding venues in Tauranga that can boast spectacular views across the harbour to Mt Maunganui.

Literally a stone’s throw from the water's edge, you can enjoy a glass of wine in the fresh sea breeze under Tauranga's sunny skies. A great place to relax and unwind with your work colleagues or family and friends, Nautilus provides the perfect setting for all day dining.

We are next to the Sulphur Point Marine Park Walkway, so call in and fuel up on your way around the circuit. Or come and enjoy a game of petanque while sampling our extensive wine selection or our delicious coffee.

Our stunning location, spacious restaurant and large lawn on the water's edge make Nautilus Restaurant the perfect Tauranga wedding venue and function venue that will impress your guests. We are also Tauranga catering specialists.
