We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxed long lunch at Sails, with a great view of Sydney Harbour. (Pity it was so wet that day!) We had the degustation menu and every course was a delight. Service was excellent. We have booked to return in a couple of weeks.

This restaurant enjoys one of the best positions on Sydney Harbour and previously we have enjoyed food to match. Unfortunately, on this occasion my main was disappointing. The staff were excellent and deleted that item from the bill, agreeing that it was not up to standard. However, it did detract from our enjoyment of what could, and should have been,... More

Had dinner there. The view is one of the best Sydney has to offer without a doubt! Having Vivid to highlight it was a bonus! The ambience is perfect and I was bemused being called mate by the waiter (being female) :) Overall the service can be described as casual excellence. Although it wasn't on the menu, it was no...

WE lunched at Sails yesterday. The food was excellent & the service although a little slow was friendly & helpfull. The restaurant offers full on Harbour views & would be a great place to take overseas visitors.

We had dinner here on the first day of the 2015 "Storm of the Century". The storm certainly impacted staff. We arrived, drenched, but the staff showed little inclination to help. The wind kept blowing the front door open, yet, we were offered a table in that part of the restaurant that was as windy as outside. Only after asking,... More

I always bring guests here as it is in a great location overlooking the bridge, has great service but most importantly amazing food. The dégustation menu is usually the best choice, 7 courses and 7 vines, I call it the 7 heaven menu.

Took our overseas guest for dinner. What a great experience with views of the harbour bridge, opera house and Sydney skyline. Menu some what limited but the quality and freshness of the food was extraordinary. Decided to try the degustation and we were not disappointed. This is a fine dining experience, excellent service with unbeatable views. Recommend for your own... More
