We arrived one night just recently at 6.30pm to hopefully enjoy a meal at Sails (just two of us). The restaurant was 3/4 empty (outside verandah had some tables with clients, inside was completely empty). We asked for a table and the lady said "we cannot take any more people for 1 to 1.5 hrs", what the hell??? she made... More

The restaurant is right on the beach and is great for an afternoon snack with a drink or two. Service was fine. Seriously recommend the fries. I don't know what they did to them but they were amazing !!! Match it with a cold beer, and you can't go wrong. Would definitely recommend checking it out.

Nice spot this. Great view across Muri Lagoon, good menu and cold drinks. Our family of four tried a bit of everything and it was all good. Seafood excellent. Staff friendly and attentive. Bill reasonable - would eat here again.

We have eaten here a few times now and their 3 fish dish cannot be beat anywhere! Its a highlight I look forward to when visiting Rarotonga! Great selection of food and also in a great setting. One of my favourite places to dine!

Sails isn't particularly elegant but the food was delicious and the setting ideal. We had a pleasant seafood dinner.

Sails provided one of our best evening meals on Raro (as well as a run of the mill lunch later in the week). It benefits from having a cracking location on Muri Lagoon but it's also admirably unpretentious and, unlike a lot of the restaurants we visited, managed to strike the right balance between informality and quality. We had beef... More

Be prepared for the wind - and make sure that you have something warm to put on. I had Thai chicken and it was beautiful as was the service.

the evening meals are good too, but we preferred going during the day to eat and looking out over the view. We went several times this holiday and the staff were always really friendly. I couldn't see past the burger! Definitely book for evening meals as it does get busy.

We had a great meal at this restaurant as a party of 7. We were so glad we had booked in advance otherwise we would not have got a table. It was busy, yet the food, service and ambiance was excellent. Will certainly be returning!
