SITTING on the water watching the yachts come in, Spinnakers has certainly got a nautical appeal.
But with a chef, Austrian Philip Hannig – who spent a year training under Gordon Ramsey – it also scores high in the cooking stakes.
After a year at Ramsey’s popular Boxwood café in London, Hannig spent a few months at Marbella’s La Roche before heading to Sotogrande port.
His food is light and simple and despite having a compact menu, he is able to delight with his blue fin tuna served with fennel, carrots and leeks, as well as an excellent starter of goats cheese with mushrooms.
There is even sushi and naturally – since Hannig is Austrian – his apple strudel was one of the best I have tried.
Run by a friendly couple Monica and John from Budapest, a clearly popular touch is the offering of warm blankets to guests as the night draws in.
