We ate dinner here seated next to the pool. Service was great and the food was terrific. The warm glow of the lights and sound of the ocean waves made for a very nice atmosphere. We started with the charcuterie platter which was a good portion for three. We ordered fish & chips, salmon and tandoori chicken. For dessert, it... More

Great spot next to the pool overlooking the beach - fabulous Margarita's - service was a little slow, but as nothing to rush off to, worth the wait!

The restaurants in Hamilton Island are mostly very expensive and we found the Sails to be a diamond in the rough with excellent pricing. The food was very good the view of the ocean is great and the two times we ate here it was not noisy although we like a place with lots of people that tells you right... More

We visited here for dinner on our first night in Hamilton Island and having made no reservations at any the restaurants by the Marina. We got a table by the beach and had a really nice meal. We both chose the Tandoori Chicken, which was very tasty and the chicken nice and moist. The service was very good, particularly from... More

Staff were friendly and accommodating and special mention to Holly who was very friendly and helpful. I ordered a Thai Beef Salad which was a lovely salad but, for me, there was absolutely nothing Thai about it at all. Everyone else enjoyed their meals of chicken and fish. Special shout out for the garlic bread with cheese - big portion... More

We went here for lunch. Food was reasonable but not great. We had the prawns (5 small prawns for $22), the burger (mediocre at best) and the jerk chicken (no semblance to jerk chicken).

We had Dinner here because there is not much of a choice on the menus in the resorts, and we also did brekky there as well as this was included in the complimentary brekky if you stay at Reef View

Sails restaurant is located in the original building on Hamilton Island. This part of the island is somewhat dated and tired looking and in need of a revamp. Food average. Hot in summer. Day trippers also have access to this area.

This is an attractive restaurant by the main complex pool in the resort centre. However, when we went in it was really hit and there were lots of quite noisy children. It didn't really suit us. The position is lovely.
