we went here as we had heard so many good reviews of this restaurant and decided we had to try before we left. We wished we had never come. Of all the meals we had in Rarotonga, this was the worst in terms of value for the meal we received. Reasonably high priced mains where the French fries needed frying... More

I stopped off here one day with my wife for a quick lunch when in Muri and I was not disappointed. I happened to order the Ika Mata, which was a fresh Yellowfin Tuna marinated in a way similar to ceviche. It was absolutely amazing, and I believe rather reasonably priced. The fish tasted as fresh as you can have... More

Nice beach cafe. Menu and prices pretty much what you would expect. It was very convenient for us to the pacific resort where we stayed. The highlight of my lunch was the pacific pash cocktail I had. Excellent! Friendly service, typical from the lovely locals.

We went here twice for dinner and were disappointed both times. Even though both times there were less than 8 people dining or drinking we waited for 25 minutes for our cocktails to arrive and then the meal was also slow coming out. The meal was nothing spectacular and was at the higher end and was also a smaller than... More

Wonderful dinner at Sails which has the perfect view of the beach and lagoon, and great seating outside with a good atmosphere. Although staff seemed busy, overwhelmed and not very helpful. We found our own seats, menus and had to find them to order. But the food was delicious as were the cocktails.. and I probably would return.

We have been to Raro 5 times - we always have dinner & some days happy hour at Sails. The location is beautiful right on Muri Lagoon, the food & service is good, we will definately be back on our sixth trip. The entertainment we were blest with one Friday night was Triggerfish - a regular band at Sails -... More

We were staying 50 metres up the beach in Muri. Sails seemed to be open all the time so whatever time of day, you could have a drink, a snack, lunch, dinner or a cocktail. We did all of these during our stay in Muri. Being on the beach but raised up 5 or 6 metres, the view from Sails... More
