  • Went to Spinnackers and was immediately put off buy our waitress. She seemed upset that we were taking a table in her section and were only drinking coffee and water. After taking our lunch drink order, we waited fifteen minutes before she cam back for our food order. I ordered the duck confit poutine which sounded great. By the time it got to me it was lukewarm and the fries were soggy.

  • We always visit Spinnakers when we visit Vicwest, but this year, we were disappointed. They do not start you with an excellent bread basket any more, and while our meals were tasty, mine was a seafood platter amid which I found an unidentifiable piece of shell that looked like a barnacle with green tentacles. Luckily I did not break a tooth on it but it made me feel queasy.

    Our intrepid server took it to the kitchen and was told you have to expect the odd surprise in seafood !
    He then took it to the manager who told him to offer me a free drink. Nobody except our server cared enough to visit our table.

  • A visit to Victoria require seeking out great places to eat. While Spinnakers is a great place, the food was lacking. The fish and chips were returned because the chips were dried out and worst of all, the batter on the fish was burnt, as it was when it was returned, rather than go through the wait, we ate the fish and scrapped off the batter. The salmon was maple glazed so much the salmon flavor disappeared. The cornish pastie with beef and mushrooms seem to have been sweetened with something, an odd flavor.
    The unusual appetizer of 6 beers paired with 6 fresh local cheeses is an unusual treat as is the beer and chocolate truffle pairings you can have for dessert.
    All in all, a very nice place to eat, if only the food was better and if the servers were a bit more familiar with the products.

  • Order: dinner special, cornish pastie, fish n' chips, salmon plate
