Great location

Had lunch here and enjoyed the beachfront location. The staff were very friendly and we did enjoy a couple of cocktails. Portion sizes were very good and I can recommend the fish and chips. I always ask for extra tatare sauce as a lot of places are pretty stingey however it was not needed here... read more

Great food (Seafood Caesar was yum!). Pity it was windy as the clear, plastic sheets over the verandah were down. Otherwise it would have been perfect! It's lovely just to wander along the beach from Pacific Resort to get to Sails. Stunning view while you're having dinner.

Was highly rated in the local rag, but was disappointing sadly. Chose not worth a second visit as very pricey.

Great view and a nice long happy hour...aside from that it's a mid-range Auckland-like establishment with prices to match...we ordered the 'Ika Mata' (local dish - marinaded fresh fish salad') - what at first appeared to be a generous serving was anything but. Small amount of fish on top and loads of coconut milk and salad (especially large lettuce leaves... More

Late lunch at Salis restaurant was very enjoyable sitting on the outdoor deck watching the sailers in Muri Lagoon & enjoyed a lovely walk along beach after our meal. A must do while in Rarotonga

Great Location only hampered by very slow service. The view is just magic, and the food is very nice, if a little expensive, but the service is slow, which in itself isnt a major issue, but some things should not take so long to arrive. Drinks are quick to serve. Like many places on the island, the staff just dont... More
