I wanted to order the special fish but there was none left, instead we ordered the Fish with hollandaise sauce and the Chicken curry, the fish was ok but overcooked. The curry was quite awful! Staff seemed very disinterested!

Nice atmosphere especially if u can get a seat on the deck. Just beware that u may get kicked off for the all important 'sailing club' members- regardless of whether or not they're actually going to sit down!

Right on the beach, the furnishings are basic but fine. Very friendly staff. Hubby ordered lamb but they didn't have any left. I ordered a fish dish which had 3 different types of fish. We'd go back for sure. The most impressive thing was we made a rez before leaving Canada and they confirmed right away!

The food served was fresh with lovely Pacific Rim flavours. You can sit out on the deck overlooking Muri Lagoon. Happy hour 4 - 8 at Isobar is great on the wallet with $4 drinks.

This is my first review as the experience at sails was so bad. We had ocean strike (fish of the day) yellow fin tuna. The tuna was so over cooked the poor thing was annihilated! I really did feel for the poor tuna who died for my dinner that I could not eat. I had a far superior fish meal... More

Went with a group of five people and without exception we were all very impressed with the menu choices and the standard of service. The meals where excellent. We sat outside on the deck which is a great option.

What a great view from the outside deck looking over the lagoon. We should have just had a drink and wandered on but alas we stayed for lunch. The seafood basket at $38 was so small I went away hungry and the fish was dry and chewy. Calamari was superb. My wife had the crab salad and it was a... More

A centre point for what's going on in the area, Sails on Muri beach is an excellent place to stop for a drink and something to eat while assessing your next move. Specials often result in drinks being reasonably priced and they present a good selection to cater for most preferences. The food varies; I was never disappointed, but, occasionally... More
