We came for my Birthday lunch, the food was delicious and the cocktails were perfect for a beautiful spring day. I was crazing the Moules Frites but were out of Mussels so I tried the Beet and Roasted Squash salad and it did not disappoint, and lets not forget the fries and rouille uhhhhweeeee Again another fantastic experience at Spinnakers.

Wonderful service, great food, even the picky teens loved their meals, and that Caramel Toast!!!! Holy smokes it's decadent trouble After Brunch we picked up some chocolate croissants, chocolate bark, and cookies. They don't always have the chocolate croissants but when they do I recommend picking a few up. They are one of the best chocolate croissants I have ever had.

Spinnakers always more than meets our high expectations. The food (Halibut pasta and Braised Beef) was worthy of a much higher priced restaurant and the service was professionally friendly and efficient. We keep coming back for the atmosphere and the beer, but everything is first-rate.

The service was limited of course due to Covid, but staff were friendly. We had the 1 piece halibut and chips. My only comment was the coleslaw was very disappointing. Some of the pieces were too large. Maybe it could have been fresher, it just wasn’t very appealing.

Our first time staying at your guest house #6....very spacious and super comfortable...the only complaint was the shower and jacuzzi bath...very difficult to get in and out of..I managed to shower, but felt a bit insecure due to not having anything to hold onto...my wife who is quite weak and fragile would not have been able to get in or out..thus she sponged bathed....I would also like to compliment your staff, especially Ryan, who came over twice on our first day to sort out the WIFI..... and we really enjoyed the complimentary beer and chocolate pairing...was wonderful !!!! We will definitely encourage friends and out of town guests to consider your facility for a stay vacation and location couldn’t be better...we live in View Royal and consider the waterfront walkway from Westbay Marina to the Johnson St bridge one of our favourites. Thanks again to all of your staff for making our short 2 day stay a memorable one, celebrating my wife’s 65th birthday....well done !!!

I was at the bar upstairs, with kids. I like the idea of ordering at the bar. The ladies at the bar were super efficient and also came to the table to help, e.g. when one of our kids spilled their drink.

We are regulars at your restaurant as we live in the neighbourhood. We have always found your servers to be very friendly, professional and helpful. They seem to have the "right personality" for being in the food/bar service industry. No complaints on the food or presentation. Two of us had the salmon burger which was excellent and the third person had the beef burger which they were very happy with. They had never been to Spinnakers before, but they said they would definitely come back!

We did dine around, and holy smokes was it DELICIOUS! The Nut Brown Ale Braised Beef with root veg and winter greens, is hearty and I cannot wait to go back and have it again. Also the sticky toffee pudding was top notch.

My husband asked for a side Caesar. It turned out to be a kale caesar which he didn’t expect/like. A Caesar salad is a Caesar salad. Maybe if it’s made with,kale, you can call it something else.

One of the dine around menu options was sold out but there was no real substitute. Suggest you let diners chose something of equivalent cost from the menu when that happens. We had read the menu in advance so that was a let down.

We needed a wheelchair accessible table and none were available. Unfortunate, but nobody's fault. The team did a great job setting us up and taking care of us outside. Not ideal for atmosphere but the service and food were excellent. There is no handicap parking since they set up outside tables. That needs to be remedied.

We had a great time at Spinnakers. They are doing an excellent job at making guests feel safe during Covid. It was actually the third time we eaten there in three weeks, due in large part to being able to enjoy eating out in a safe environment. The food is excellent, service is just right-there when you need someone and very accommodating. We’ll be back!

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

Don’t expect to find any imports here: The beer doesn’t travel that far. In fact, it’s brewed right on site. So grab a Lion’s Head Cascadia Dark Ale, take a seat and enjoy the waterfront view. Make sure you’ve built up an appetite, too: The chef here is all about local ingredients, and from the local water shrimp melt to the Cache Creek beef flank steak, the BC flavour is apparent in every bite.

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

Although they only have three burgers on their menu, Victoria’s only gastro brewpub has spent a lot of time perfecting them. Their vegetarian BC Beet & Lentil Burger featuring spicy sprouts, malt vinegar pickled cabbage, and tzatziki rivals their meaty Brewpub Burger. And don’t even get us started on the Braised Pulled Pork Sandwich with Cascadia dark ale BBQ sauce and aioli – we’re drooling just thinking about it! Grab yourself one of their own superb craft beers and just try to decide between the three. We dare you.
