Walk in off the beach

Relaxed atmosphere, you can walk in straight off the beach. Outdoor seating overlooks the lagoon. Although somewhat overpriced, the food is fresh and delicious and we ate here three times - 2 lunches and one dinner. Service is very slow, so allow plenty of time for the meal. Just sit back and relax... read more

We had lunch here twice just recently. The service was abysmally slow, it was very hard to understand why as they werent packed with customers, and we were only a small group of five. Slow to take our initial drink order, slow to deliver, then a long wait to have our orders taken, and on and on. The food is... More

Sails is located right on the beautiful Muri lagoon and so has a stunning view unlike other venues that are set back on the road. What we love about this place is that it serves the BEST coffee, rich, flavoursome and hot. Much better than the 2 others close by we think. Also the staff are really nice girls. It... More

Over priced and average service. Popped in for a beer and got service that indicated the staff were not close to interested. The bar and restaurant were empty yet we got seated out the back and away from any views of the lagoon. Had one drink and got horrendously overcharged. Avoid as there are far better bars close by!

My boyfriend and I came to Sails after recommendations and it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service was very efficient. The restaurant is set on the waters edge and I very much enjoyed listening to the sound of the ocean. We both ordered the signature fish dish, which was an absolute delight, cooked... More

No complaints about the friendliness of the lady at the bar who served us. We stopped for drinks but decided to order a snack. The fried wontons are on the dinner menu but we were able to get them mid-afternoon. Unfortunately they were hard and doughy. However, we saw other dishes pass by that looked quite good. The outdoor patio... More

Lovely meal and great service. Only disappointment is they did not have Mahimahi available. Only a short walk from our hotel.

The food was delicious, reasonably priced but we waited over an hour to get our meals. The restaurant was clean, staff were friendly. They were about to bring us our bill then realised that we hadn't eaten. No apology was given - was told they had a large order - other people were served who came after us though, so... More
