I think that being a part of the hotel makes a great injustice to the restaurant because people go less there compared with neighboring restaurants.

And in my opinion restaurant Spinnaker is well worth a chance. The food is delicious, wine list extensive offering many local and international wines.

Sommelier Edi Brcic is one of the best in Croatia. He is gentle and presents perfectly the meals and the wine served along. I changed my choice of a wine few times, based on Edi’s suggestions. And I’ve never regretted following Edi’s advice.

I went for a dinner at Restaurant Spinnaker during Valamar Jazz Festival. This summer Jazz Festival takes place in Porec every year in June or July. Concerts are held on the island of St. Nicolas, and after party in the villa Polesini.

Delicious meal at Restaurant Spinnaker Porec

Couvert consisted of a butter and lemon spread, served with choices of home-made bread rolls (with walnuts, olives, plain, …). For starter we chose Octopus Carpaccio. It was excellent. Octopus was sliced thinly, marinated in lemon juice, seasoned with olive oil, and served with cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.

We also tasted a Boskarin Carpaccio (Carpaccio of Istrian cattle). It was also seasoned with an olive oil and served with cherry tomatoes and Parmesan. Delicious!

Fish soup was fantastic. Fish soup was packed with fish, vegetables, herbs and flavors.

And for the main course I went with grilled gilt-head bream fillets served on the bed of vegetable risotto, while my friends chose beefsteak.

Steaks were perfectly made au point and grated with fresh truffles. And the waiter wasn’t cheap on truffle.
