We dined here for dinner twice as well as one brekfast during our recent stay at Sails. The service was very attentive and equal to some of the best places I have visited. Meals were presented in a timely fashion by experienced wait staff who obviously care and it showed. The flavours were lovely and did not dissapoint. When staying... More

My friends and I met up in Port Macquarie for the weekend (we live all over the place these days and it's easier to plan a trip away every so often). It was decided that we would book for dinner at the Spinnakers Restaurant at Rydges Sails Resort as it was located in a great spot on the Marina near... More

We dined here for dinner twice and were pleasantly surprised at the lovely setting and delicious meals! The Fish Of The Day & Pork Belly were our favs! We also had breaky one morning - the Banana pancakes with bacon & maple syrup were a hit and the continental buffet was fresh and had good variety of yummy options. Great... More

A lovely setting overlooking the water. Great views. Especially in the morning for breakfast. Only wanted a light meal to share. Opted for the seafood chowder, along with arancini and a basket of fries. All dishes were very tasty and just the right portion sizes.. The chowder was very good but not quite as good as the ones in San... More

I have been coming to the Sails Resort for many years and eaten many meals at Spinnakers. My last couple of visits to the restaurant found me thinking the meals were okay but they were way too busy, too many ingredients, the protein being lost in the meal. Not tonight!!!!! Simplicity was the answer. Simple meals cooked perfectly with ingredients... More

Attached to the Sails Resort as the dine in option, this is not just another hotel restaurant. A standalone restaurant on its own, this was a popular venue on the Saturday night we visited, with a mixture of locals and guests enjoying a meal - we were the latter, visiting for the June Long Weekend. The layout was spacious, and... More

Located just across the road from the Settlement City Shopping Centre, Spinnakers is situated within the Rydges Sails Resort and provides stunning views over the port marina as well as the Hastings River. The restaurant itself, does state an extensive menu, even though being sublime, I would more likely rate their range of food as minimal, in relation to most... More
