Spinnaker restaurant’s chef Goran Hrastovčak honed his craft at the La Pergola restaurant, training under the renowned chef Heinz Beck who boasts 3 Michelin stars.

Only local ingredients are used in Spinnaker’s kitchen. Information on how each ingredient was produced, grown or harvested is transparent and the original flavour is honoured and preserved in every dish. That is why the plates from Hrastovčak’s kitchen are genuine works of art that are able to fuse seemingly incongruous flavours due to meticulous and inspired cooking. Each bite is teeming with variations and unexpected aromatic and textural twists.

The powerful experience and quality of Chef Hrastovčak’s cooking at Spinnaker has been acknowledged by Gault Millau, Falstaff and L’Espresso, who have heaped praise and given him rave reviews.



Food & Wine


To build this menu we started with well known local dishes and cooking techniques and experimented with pairing unexpected, surprising ingredients. We taste, change the seasoning or preparation technique until we craft a perfect plate, down to every drop of precious Istrian olive oil. Every dish on the menu is a precise little cooking miracle. Close your eyes. Focus on the flavours and aromas and enjoy the mastery of our team.


“The food at Spinnaker is tailored to food adventurers. One plate at a time, we crafted a menu that piques curiosity and titillates the taste buds, inviting guests to Spinnaker on an adventure beyond known flavours and aromas. Each bite is an unforgettable memory.”
