Excellent Views

Went here for lunch on two occasions, enjoyed them both. Bang bang Chicken and the Burger are very tasty. Service was great and views to die for. Highly recommend trying this spot out.

Best restaurant in Rarotonga - service and food outstanding. Laid back but efficient. The game fish was superb and lamb shanks were the best ever. Highly recommend

Ran out of days so had to go here for lunch instead of dinner. Lovely setting right on the beach. Great service and good food. Awesome cocktails. Nice place to sit and watch the world go by with quite a bit of activity on the beach to keep you entertained.

A lovely setting at Muri Beach but with pretty mediocre food and service. Our fish was overcooked, a crime on an Island with such an abundance of delicious fish. Sails really has not much personality or feel of the original Sailing Club.

Overpriced for the size of meals ... the lamb shanks were delicious and definitely was as described ... shank (singular) with mash but a chicken dish for my partner bore more resemblance to a 'we only have so much chicken left and cannot be bothered cooking more so let's just fill the plate up with salad to make it look...

Pleasant meal, good wine selection and nice veranda for sitting outside, inside dinning fairly noisy and not the most romantic. Lunch here was better and the island fries were great.

Great place to relax and having a good meal sitting on the balcony over looking the beach and the lagoon. Nice décor, friendly service, no stress. The house fish selection was very good and nicely cooked. Nice garnish but was not so keen on the house croquette but probably more of my taste bud. The marinated tuna in coconut cream... More
