I went here on recommendation from the hotel front desk staff and am so happy I took her advice. I was worried that I was underdressed but quickly realized Spinnakers created an ambiance where anything goes from dressed up to pub clothes. There were families in the restaurant and there were couples on a date night. The food was outstanding.... More

We haven't been to Spinnakers in a while and decided to go back this time. My wife and I both had the fish and chips. The meal was excellent. I would also recommend the Nut Brown Ale. We were disappointed because they took the apple pie off the menu. It was excellent and huge. We shared an apple crumble and... More

Enjoyed delicious fish and chips on a very busy Monday night. I loved that they give you the option of chips and salad. Service was good, The Lager I had was light and tasty.

I've been coming back to this place ever since my first visit, which was the first day that they opened back in the mid-80s. It was cutting edge back in the day - fine English style beers, superior food (Oysters Rockereller for a buck or two), darts, and a great view of the entrance to Victoria Harbour. Now it's changed,... More

On a referral from a co-worker we travelled across town to Spinnakers Brewpub. What a great location right on the water. We went up to the upper level overlooking the harbour. The service was good the food was great and the beer even better. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Victoria BC.

A table with a view, a crisp slightly rainy day, nice glass of wine, amazing fresh salad and some steamed clams....doesn't get much better than that. Was just right after a day of exploring and snacking through downtown....just right, light, but filling.

We went here on the advice of a local and were well rewarded. We had a lovely view over the harbour and enjoyed a light tasty lunch with the option of tasting the local craft brew in a rare to find small quantity: 5oz, 10oz or more. A helpful menu helped to discover the favourite 'brew'. An added bonus was... More

We went to spinnakers during dine around and were disappointed. We sat downstairs and the combination of stone table tops and big windows (in March) was cold! I did not enjoy either of the appetizers - bruschetta trio and pork terrine. I had the duck confit which was delicious but the sides were cold and undercooked. My partner had the... More
