I had a perfectly good steak and my wife had some perfectly fine pasta. All in all not a bad meal. Not amazing. Not bad. Just good food for about nzd $35 per person.

Great for a casual meal. Seafood was great. Service a little slow but island time and friendliness compensates

Great views of the beach. Service was terrible and the seafood basket we shared was just fried frozen food. The fish was nice though. Happy hour is only on selected items, so make sure you ask what is available for happy hour (they don't tell you)

Ate there in Jan. 2017. the location is right at the beach and quite nice (a little dark though as no candles were on the table) the food was ok and did not take too much time. However the menu could be a little more detailed as it was not entirely clear what each meal contained.

We splurged on 2 seafood plates but really it was not what I expected, everything fried almost beyond recognition...it was a little disappointing. The wait was ridiculous and it was not a full house, difficult with young hungry kids. Seemed to be understaffed. Staff were friendly but super stressed. Might be nice to go for breakfast as the view is... More

Have been a couple of times this holiday. The food is superb, setting is amazing, looking out over the lagoon. Prices are up there, but for the quality and quantity of the food, it's pretty good value. Definitely recommend!!

Einstein must surely have visited Sails. I'm certain of it as he could not have possibly noticed otherwise the relativity of time. I asked for an Affogato, which as delicious as it is, is a rather simple thing, just two scoops of vanilla ice cream and a shot of espresso coffee to pour over. Being so simple, it is reasonable...

Great location on the beach. We had the calamari and it was very fresh and island chips were very tasty. It is very lovely spot to settle in for a long lunch
