Over the years, we did visit the “Sails Beach Restaurant” at the Muri Lagoon again. We find it is a great place for a Happy Hour outing. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, the view is fabulous, the food is good, the service we always found friendly, although at times a bit slow, maybe because its busy. But since we are in... More

Six of us had a pleasant evening at Sails however we felt their prices were over inflated for the quality of food we were dished up. Alot of it was deep fried and greasy. Lovely staff and location but just over priced!

The atmosphere is lovely out on the deck. Service was nice and attentive with a new waitress who was happy to check a few questions I had with a more experienced waitress which is very professional we thought. The prawn entree was delicious and the pork taco was generous and scrumptious that we would probably share them for an entree... More

We hadn't reserved so I appreciate that but we were told the table would be 25 mins so we ordered drinks and waited. It took 20 mins and no sign of drinks even we left. It was a public holiday so it was busy, but I wouldn't recommend.

Sitting down by the water we enjoyed great cold beer and wines and some of the best food we had on the Island. The fish and chips was a highlight with fresh reef fish as well as the prawn skewers. For couples, groups or families this is a must go when visiting the Island. P.S make sure you take your... More

We visited sails for lunch recently and we're made aware there was an hour wait for food ( understandable as it's a busy time of year!) so we grabbed two cocktails and sat down to wait, an hour passed then two hours passed ( ordering another drink each in between and not updated on wait time) we ended up cancelling...

Went in at 7pm and asked if they could do a table for 4. Not until 8pm was the reply. Ok we are happy to sit and wait and have some cocktails. We did. At 8.15 my hubby asked when will our table be ready (after watching 2 empty tables right in front of us the whole time). The very... More

First of all the food was ok except for the food poisoning. The main issue here was the service. We ordered drinks, starters, and mains at 7pm. Drinks took a while, staters came around 8pm and mains came at 9pm. We didn't bother with dessert as we had better things to do. I definitely wouldn't recommend this place.
