Hooray for happy hour

Came to enjoy happy hour, then we came back again after a long day out exploring, so it again was happy hour, but we decided to order a late lunch, approx 3:15 pm. We had our 1st drink, ordered lunch, taking in the beautiful muri lagoon and ordered our next drink, chatting away, as you do, then... read more

Disappointed in this restaurant which sits on a prime location at Muri beach. After waiting for our meal for about an hour, we were told that as we had moved tables the staff could not find us, to give us our meal. However we had told the staff which table we were moving too, and our drinks had already been... More

A lovely place to eat and enjoy a drink over looking Muri. The restaurant is dirty and the toilets not very clean but its a lower budget restaurant and expectations arnt as high as if you were paying 30$+ mains. The service is great and fun, the cocktails a great apart from the Banana colada.

Sails was a great location to have a few drinks and a bite to eat while watching the kids swim and paddle board. We ordered 6 share platters at $24 each to feed our large group. Delicious and fresh.

Staff not very friendly and overcooked tuna. Nice location though. It was a bit windy the day we were there.

Jan 13, Feb 12, 2015. A good Chardonnay and a bowl of delicious island specialty rukau made my afternoon. These cooked local taro greens remind me of the espinacas I’ve been longing to taste again since 1980 in Mexico City. In fact, maybe the rukau is better, creamy and tangy enough to sustain a chardonnay—enough to bring me back a... More

Average sums it up, and three spots seems the right rating. Positives the location is stunning on the lagoon, and the food is good (though overpriced for what it is). Also the staff were friendly and helpful on what was a rather quiet Tuesday night. But I could see that they could easily take laid back too far as some... More

A great setting but unfortunately very poor service. We placed our order and after an hour of waiting we inquired where our meals were to be told she forgot to put our order in to the kitchen. To their credit we did get free drinks. A little too laid back!
