“An excellent dining experience on the Limestone Coast”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We had a recommendation from a cellar door in the Coonawarra - Sails, the best restaurant in Robe. We booked on the day and were given a later time than we asked for. That was fine and allowed the kitchen to attend to everyone in a timely way. We both had a seafood plate with beautifully cooked and presented prawns, calamari, scallops and mussels. The wine list favoured local wines. Our choice of a Woodsoak sparkling and a Katnook Cabernet were terrific. The pannacotta and cheese plate were also well prepared and thoughtfully presented. The staff were a highlight, friendly, helpful and efficient.

“good food and service”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

initially skeptical but after trying it, we were very very happy with the food and service (although there were only 2 manning the kitchen and another 2 service staff). The squid and roasted pork belly was delicious, and the fish was well cooked.

this was the highlight of our trip to Robe!

“A special place for the products of the sea”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We had a very enjoyable experience at Sails - the lobster and the mixed seafood main were as good as any seafood in our home town Melbourne. Quite a surprise. The local ale was also treat.

But please allow customers to pay with Amex - add on an extra 3% if necessary.
