Small menu but classic dishes of the best quality. Personal service from the chef and nothing is too much effort. Also the location is second to none. Don't miss out on this experience

I could never say enough about the amazing dishes prepared at Sails. The menu is perfection and this is a necessary stop for anyone dining out in South Coast. Every dish is perfect and the most difficult thing is deciding what to order. Everything is great!! But the King prawns were surely King...complimented with a coconut and lime sauce. They... More

But we don't - in England! We had two very good meals here one lunch, one dinner - both were first class. No hesitation in recommending 'Sails' for the food, service and the setting - please go.

After trying most of the restaurants in Diani, Sails remained in my top 2 favorite, and i went as much as my money let me. The service, the place and especially the food, are the one of a 2 or 3 stars on the Michelin guide for the price of a Bistrot in Europe. For 40 euros you get a... More

As most Diani residents agree, the Nr.1 restaurant in Diani. Small and cozy, so that the chef always has time to look after all the tables personally. Great food. Brilliant location. Pricey, but worth it. Reservation only.
