Just Ok nothing special. The meal was small, fish was tasty but didn't wow me. My husbands steak was fair.

“Best steak on the island.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I dined at Sails on one night of our 5 day visit to the island. We both had scotch fillet steak and agree that it was one of the best pieces of meat we have ever eaten. Like all restaurants on the island, it is a bit expensive, but worth it.

“Just a cafeteria really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The whole experience was disappointing - queuing to order food is not for me for an evening meal. Fine for children and families otherwise I'd give this a miss. The food was pretty sad and not well presented.

“Yummy Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Stayed on Hamilton Island for a week and ate at Sails a few times. Really good selection and free meals for kids the stay in certain hotels. Good service and was even able to take kids feed to the pool next door. My daughter and I had Calamari salt and pepper, my husband had wonderful fish and chips and our other daughter wanted thai curry but doesn't eat fish so they did it in chicken...the kiddies were very happy as they were allowed to get a few different ice creams after.

“Relaxing breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We had breakfast included with our stay and preferred Sails to the other choices. Sails was much quieter and calmer than breakfast at the Reef View Hotel, and has a lot more choice than breakfast at the Wildlife Park. You can choose where to sit and it was never busy between 8 and 8.30am. Food is buffet style and there is plenty of choice. If you don't like tea, coffee or chocolate from the machines you can order drinks at the bar which you will pay extra for. We found the hot chocolate from the machine very good. A great start to the day.
