Having two chefs running the same kitchen means consistency in well balanced and beautifully presented dishes. Spinnaker's Executive Chef, Ivan Ergović shares his passion and enthusiasm with every member of the staff, producing subtle, clean and enjoyable flavour palettes in his own distinctive style. He teamed up with Chef Goran Hrastovčak who took part in a 10 month Heinz Beck masterclass in Rome, picking up trends and technologies dominating contemporary cuisine and has since incorporated them in the Spinnaker menu.



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.


“When you put together two chefs, one experienced and down to earth and the other wild and creative and they create a menu touching on all of the staples of Croatian and Istrian cuisine with the latest food trends and techniques, you get one of the best contemporary haute cuisine restaurants in all of Istria. Fresh from the sea, locally farmed, cooked with precision and skill, Spinnaker serves modern takes on traditional Istrian cuisine.”
