Birthday dinner

Great views fast efficient service. A little more expensive than the average restaurant in Whangarei but worth it particularly for something special. Good menu and nicely presented food.

My partner and I dined at Top Sail in March, 2013 too. We absolutely enjoyed the dining experience. The menu is small but great care is taken with each meal. On both occasions, the food has been delicious. A cut above! I remember receiving some bread baked by the chef, prior to getting our entrees. Lovely petite rolls - delicious.... More

Pleasant setting and wait staff. Lovely entree but sadly the main I had was under seasoned and a tad bland. Creme brûlée had separated and tasted like scrambled egg which was rather unpleasant. Nice overall but slightly over priced.

TopSail is a small, personal restaurant. The hostess is lovely and the food is excellent. It's definitely our favourite.

Visited this place recently with a friend from Auckland and we were certainly not disappointed. The cocktails were just great followed by wonderful food, very attentive service and delightful dessert. Sadly it was dark but the view during the day must be great. So far this is the best meal I have had in Whangarei

First rate service, seasonal food and extensive wine selection. Relaxed atmosphere, smallish venue and harbour aspect definitely a plus. New grad comment - beautiful!

Top Sail not only ticks all the boxes it gives them all a big gold star as well! Great service and ambience. Extensive drinks list all served in quality glassware/decanter. Meals to remember - you can taste the passion that has gone into everything. You can always guarantee a great experience at Top Sail.
