It's all about the view

This place is all about the view which is spectacular. The menu was good, the wine list is great. We had great service and our visiting family really enjoyed the whole experience. Parking is by meter on the street and very expensive so be warned. We've been before and we will go back but for a... read more

Having read the review for sails and seeing its location I was eager to try it out in 2016. The hospital I work at just happened to have a function booked at sails. I wasn't sure what I was expecting when we arrived on Monday night. We had booked out the function room at the back and the room was... More

Private dining room experience with 16 people. Had the 7 course degustation with matching wines and the food was fabulous and the service was flawless. At no point was I disappointed. The wait staff were courteous and unobtrusive. Also knowledgeable about the meals being served. I would go there again and would highly recommend the private dining room for small... More

Sails has some of the best views on sydney harbour. It is also good restaurant, which can be unusual for a room with a view, The menu is not going to excite you too much if you are looking for something new or interesting. But it is very good food. We had fish and steak and some sides, all of... More

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
