We are a couple with a young teenage son, the evening we visited Sails it was around 9pm, and the place was near full. The sign at the door recommended booking and we hadn't but we got lucky and they found us a table on the deck they apologised but no worries it was a lovely warm night.they advised as... More

Booked late on a recent Saturday in peak tourist season and surprised to get one table remaining. We were a mixed family group with a toddler and the high chair arrived promptly.. we had omitted to ask for this, and the service was speedy and efficient. The food was very good too...seafood platter and polenta dish all very fresh. Lots... More

We had to book a day in advance and in the end were disappointed. While the food is not bad, it is hard to believe this place won the plaudits it has. Seafood linguini was bland with overcooked seafood. Vegetarian gnocchi was also disappointing. Saving grace was our waiter. She was only in her first week on the job but... More

My daughter and I ordered the fish of the day which was not as good as we had expected but acceptable. However it came with salad which was very meagre and mostly contained potatoes with a cold egg at the bottom. Very disappointed r

Wish we hadn't wasted our time at Gather and just come here two nights in a row. It was a slow start but the poor waitress Hannah seemed to be doing all the work. She was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Very fresh and generous servings. God size menu to choose from too. Coffee was also great.

After visiting sails for dinner with our family of 4 we were all very pleased with our meals. We ordered the seafood platter and seafood marinara and kids meals of spag bol and calamari. All the meals were of decent portion and tasted amazing. The seafood plate seamed better value than the seafood platter.

We visited on a Sunday night and as this was recommended by friends from their last visit, we booked but could only get in for the opening 6pm sitting. We ordered two kids meals, an adult fish and chips and the seafood pasta. My wife asked if the squid would have tentacles and was assured it wouldn't... but it did... More

Nice setting and clean, also have outdoors seating. We had lobster, soft-shelf crabs, scallops and some marinated veggies. In general, seafood is very fresh, perfect portion size, taste is great too. Only disappointment is mojito (only reason for 1 less star), should have had wine instead. One thing worth to mention is to ensure booking before drop in for dinner,... More

Spent most of the day driving down from Adelaide on a pretty non descript 340 km 'coast' road. So, very happy when we rolled into charming Robe and even happier when we chose Sails for dinner. Did not expect to get such tasty food in what felt like the middle of nowhere after that long lonely drive. We had met... More
