“Great Value. Tasty Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Went for the $20 steak night on a Friday night with 5 girlfriends. The meal was delish. I have my steak well done, and that is how it arrived at the table, yet was still melt in the mouth. The chips were yum, the mushroom sauce had real mushrooms in it and the salad on the side was fresh and had a lovely light dressing on it. It was well worth the price tag, value for money.

“old and worn out restaurant....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

we were expecting that buffet breakfast was included in our resort booking when we booked the resort for our 4 days stay..... but was told we each have to pay another 20 for the breakfast daily if we want to eat there.... so we tried.....

the food was average and the variety was not much...... not quite worth paying the 20 for each person..... there was an inflated play castle for the kids though.... seemed more attractive to the kids than than the food......

Thanks for the feedback on your recent dining experience at Spinnakers. It is always a good idea to double check if Breakfast is included with your accommodation when booking to avoid disappointment as we have many different packages whereby some packages do and some packages don’t include Breakfast.

We do offer a Continental Buffet for all our guests every morning which is $15 and have a special for $20 which consists of plated Bacon & Eggs, and you also get the continental which includes: Tea, Coffee, Juice, Toast, Preserves, Homemade Muffins, Croissants, Crumpets, English Muffins, 4 Choices of Cereal, 3 Flavours of Yoghurt, 5 types of Dried Fruit, Fresh Fruit and also a Fresh Fruit Bowl.

Perhaps for $20 you could advise what selections you would also have liked to have seen on our buffet to help us improve our value for money?

Regards,

Spinnakers

“Worst food I have ever had!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Part of the Geograph Bayview Resort. We went on the steak special night. The actual steak was good and cooked well, the mushroom sauce was a few canned mushrooms. We also got the pizza which looked as though it came straight of a packet and had no flavour. The kids fish and chips was still partly frozen, chips were nice.
Do yourself a favour and drive to Dunsbourgh pub. Good food.

“Middle of the road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Part of the Bayview Resort, the ambiance and quality of the food when we had dinner at Spinnakers seem geared to a middle-of-the-road clientele. The prices, however, are somewhat above middle-of-the-road (although the $20 nightly specials are probably good value). On the other hand, the service was attentive and helpful.

“Brilliant Buffet Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

One of the best buffet breakfasts I've seen, huge selection for every possible dietary need. Well worth the $20.
