There was a group of 18 of us and not a great deal of others in the restaurant. We were informed of two dishes that were not available on the limited menu. The entree's were over the top in pricing $20 upwards and mains all starting at $32 upwards. Which is ok if the food matched the prices. My friend... More

We went here for dinner because the reviews were good. The seafood platter was rubbish, all fried as they had run out of smoked salmon. The next morning we went for breakfast as part of our hotel room package. Let's just say it wasn't up to the same standard as other Rydges restaurants have eaten at. To make it worse,... More

Tonight we dined in Spinnakers Restaurant at Sails Resort Port Macquarie the service was quick and our meals superb. We both enjoyed our Pork Belly and Lamb Shanks followed by Coconut Creme Brulee and Apple Tartin. The restaurant was quite busy but the chef bought out our desserts which I thought was a nice touch. He did this with each... More

Dropped in for lunch 12:30 yesterday. Had heard restaurant had been refurbished. It has with cheap seats that are wearing badly. Experience began with no one at front desk. No one in restaurant , thought perhaps not open for lunch. A few minutes later, the manager ( found out later ) appeared, showed us to a table that was set.... More

Delicious food, great service, awesome views and ample parking......nearly forgot they also do cocktails! Can't ask for much more. This restaurant offers everything. Seafood, steaks, venison, fish. Great menu selections. Mains were high thirties, desserts $15. Garlic bread was delicious but expensive at $10 and a little under cooked. That would be about the only fault I could find. OOh...

There is a large banner as you come into sails resort saying free wifi,when i asked for the code i was told thats only for house guest not restaurant guests. Humm better go back and see the fine print.. Perhaps it wouldn't be unreasonable in this day and age to offer it to diners in their fine dining establishment or... More

We started with drinks on the deck followed by dinner and then breakfast the following morning. The atmosphere was great and the staff were really friendly. The food was beautiful and the chef came out at both dinner and breakfast to see if everything was ok with our food. We will definitely be back next time we stay in Port... More

We have eaten a number of times at Spinnakers, and we have always enjoyed it and the food has been high quality. On this occasion we had the promoted seafood platter for two and to put it bluntly, it was a disaster. It was 10 cooked king prawns in shells, they were not fresh, obviously thawed. There were eight battered... More

i had just booked into Sails resort so thought we would have dinner in Spinnakers. Great location and marina views. The coffee was also excellent and the menu selection looked good, BUT if you are vegetarian there is only 1 entre and 1 main course option and they were not willing to offer anything else. Very strange in this day... More
