Went to the location on a day trip as a family outing. We got what we wanted- a light lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the large quantity of food served as children's portions as well as the salads we ordered. Service was slower at the bar than for the food, but generally friendly. We had a small problem with one of the children's dishes and it was sorted quickly with apologies and a discount to cover our inconvenience.

Tip- if you prefer your tea hot- then do not sit too close to the scenic side of the restaurant when the day is windy, otherwise the tea cools very quickly.

This restaurant is in the resort area of Hamilton Island, it is "open plan" and non diners can walk through the outside tables. You order at a counter and the dishes are brought to your table. The main problem with Sails is that the quantities of food are far too large, all of our party of 4 left nearly half. This makes it poor value as you have to pay for the excess. Service is only average and the ambiance not restful.

Self service canteen.Shown to your table by your waiter then it's up to queuing at the counter to order your drinks, another counter to order your food.Thankfully the food is brought to you.I ordered the Thai yellow curry which was delicious.Enjoyed it so much I ordered it again the following evening.My hubby ate the steak which he also commented was very good.Will mention though we did go to Sails to eat on our last evening on the Island but after 5 mins we walked out as the noise of children screaming and running around was horrendous.Nice to be where their is atmosphere but it was like being in a kindergarten, shame as the food is excellent.

We had dinner here, had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but filled in that time with a drink at the bar. Dinner was nice and we returned the next 2 mornings for breakfast....can not fault that at all. The variety was exceptional and very well priced in comparison to other buffet breakfasts we have eaten "on the mainland". Staff were all friendly and helpful....would recommend to anyone.
