Hit and Miss...

Spinnakers is a pleasant and relaxed place for a meal. The wait staff are very courteous and friendly. The lamb rack is a tasty dish although expensive. My wife ordered the steak which wasn't great. We are convinced the meat was "past its prime". It was also cooked in a peppercorn marinade which... read more

We were at Spinnakers for breakfast. The offering was pretty basic but it was well done. For example, pikelettes were freshly made and nicely presented and were really fluffy. The price was probably a little inflated due to it being a resort restaurant but it was worth it. Overall it was a good experience.

Good specials were advertised as we walked passed from the ocean walk and thought the whole complex looked a bit tired. But needing a quick reasonable priced meal, gave it a go. Cost a bit more than expected due to a penalty loading that agitates me and ordered a bit more than we really wanted to engage in this night.... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy a meal without paying a fortune and selected Spinnakers. We visited on a Tuesday night - $22 Rib Night - and I'm not usually one for eating ribs, but have to say they were scrumptious. The meat fell off the bone, was tender, and the accompanying sauce was delicious with... More

We were very pleased with the service at the restaurant. We had breakfast one day and as it was late we were the only ones there and the service was great and prompt for a good price. We had dinner there on the steak night, which was a bit disappointing as the steak was undercooked - we asked for medium.... More

Had 2x meals here during a recent stay. One night was the steak night so gave it a go. I see why it was only $18, by the time I cut the grissel and fat off there was nothing left of this tiny piece of meat. The Chkn parmy was a better bet. Soup of the day seems to be... More

As soon as we saw the $22 steak special we all decided this was going to be where we would eat. I have never had a $22 steak taste so good and cooked to perfection. However we could just simply stop there we had to have ourselves a piece of garlic bread to which was great. But wait there was... More

Nothing special but generally ok. Expected a higher level of decor than is. Service from staff was ok.
