Description: A delight for seafood lovers, the chic Spinaker Beach Restaurant encapsulates the Mediterranean summer lifestyle. In the evening, the atmosphere is enchanting, with the still waters of the bay lapping gently at your feet while the bright lights of the town twinkle in the distance. The choice of seafood is sublime: baby octopus, scampi, lobster, scallops and tuna, alongside the catch of the day, prepared how you like it. At lunchtime, the pared-back menu, inspired by Dalmatian cuisine, is simpler, but no less appetising. Try the French classic, moules mariniere, followed by a refreshing sorbet. Perched atop the beach and restaurant, with fabulous sea views and comfy chairs to sink back into, spend laid-back summer nights at Spinaker Lounge, accompanied by a glass or two of chilled wine.

“Lovely place, good food but very expensive”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We really enjoyed the location of this restaurant and the peacefulness that you experienced while being served ,very attentively, by an unassuming waitress. My husband chose his own fish but at 580 kunar (£70) I personally don't think it was worth the money and he commented that the fish he had later in the week for a fraction of the price at the Cavtat Restaurant in the centre of the bay was much better. You live and learn. However the ambience was so lovely and we sat right on the edge of the water that it holds pleasant memories for us as an evening we enjoyed very much.

“Watch out for the baked fish”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The Spinaker is a beautiful new place right on the waterfront, so close you can feed the fish from your table. It is not cheap but the food is excellent. Be aware that the grilled fish that they try to sell you everywhere in Croatia is very expensive. It is sold by weight so if you pick a big one, expect to be charger accordingly, as much as £45 for a plate of food? On the up side, the views, service and location are first rate and I would reccommend giving it a go once during your trip.

“Beautiful spot”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Had lunch here by the sea, watching the little fish swim below us, and watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour. Food and service were good. Great place to go if sunbathing on the terrace beside it.
