Was a nice meal me and my girlfriend had, but the price was too high for the small amount of food you got, Granted it was kind of fancy and im not used to that.

First time here and went with four long-time locals. My first impression of the restaurant was a disappointment. As it is set in Rydges Sails Resort I expected something better than bare tables and vinyl seating, although the outlook to the river and marina was very pleasant. The locals all commented that "It must be the holiday menu" as mains... More

Our daughter, a renowned chef in her own right, invited us to join her for an evening meal at Spinnakers restaurant during her festive season visit from the Blue Mountains. What a treat. We were informed by our waiter, Dylan, that a staff change had occurred since my last visit and that a totally new seasonal menu was being launched... More

Firstly I have to say that I didn't know what to expect. Hotel restaurants can often be a let down. This was far from that! It was the first night of a new menu so we were told and our table started off with a dips plate followed by three of the seafood mains consisting of salmon, lobster, prawns and... More

The good - staff are great, attentive, friendly and courteous. The bad - the food isn't great and is ridiculously overpriced... $60 for a dozen oysters? Ouch.

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
