Spinnakers is a great place to come for classic pub food and beer (or wine) but what really makes it stand out is the atmosphere in the restaurant and the views from the patio. I recommend you make reservations and leave a minimum of 2 hours for your meal. The idea is to relax and visit during the meal so I wouldn't call the service fast. If you are staying around the inner harbour, a really neat idea is to take the water taxi over to the restaurant. Just tell them you want to go to Spinnakers. It is about $5 per person each way. (note: there is a 3 minute walk on a paved path with a slight incline to get up to the restaurant so maybe leave 30 minutes before your reservation to get the water taxi and then walk) Also take a jacket as the wind blows off the water and some people on the patio were heading indoors because they were getting chilled.
The pulled pork nacho appetizer (individual size) worked for the 3 of us to share as a starter. It was really good. Everyone had the fish and chips and thought the fish portion was a good size but it was the fries that won us over. Leave room for the white chocolate cheesecake; it is well-worth it. Another cool thing about this restaurant is that their menu is designed around locally sourced and ethically produced products.
