“Average food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We (family of 4) looked forward to a pretty special meal here after reading all the reviews online. We expected pretty amazing food for the prices charged and were probably slightly disappointed- I had the King Prawns which were overcooked in an uninspired curry sauce. My husband had the pork which he rated as average. Our daughters enjoyed the lamb and fish & chips. Our waiter was pretty hard to find most of the time and seemed a bit confused about the specials. We kept comparing this restaurant to Jellyfish in Brisbane where the food is a similar price but the quality and service far outdoes Sails. I'm sure if we had eaten during the day and enjoyed the view it would have distracted us from the food and service. But a restaurant like this should be rated on its food first and view second. We will try somewhere else next time.

“Very romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant one evening and we had the best meal that was on offer in Noosa. The outlook to the beach, the waves rolling in, and wonderful staff pouring great wines and beautiful seafood - what could be better!!

“Best on the Beach - fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to Sails and another similarly situated restaurant on the beach/boardwalk at Noosa Heads and Sails was by far superior. Fantastic outlook to trees with lanterns and then the beach and waves in moonlight creates a special atmosphere. Food very good and very good wine list. Definitely recommended for that special evening while on vacation! Will go again next time we as there.

“Special Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Location, staff, service, menu and ambience of the best. Not to be missed. At the top end with pricing, but will return again.

“Sublime.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This was the highlight of our recent stay in Noosa. We had already been for lunch and were so impressed returned for dinner. Well worth it. The service was outstanding, we had one with a food allergy in our party, our waitress came back offering to change one of the sauces on her dish as a result (excellent service). Location was exquisite and the food and wine list sensational. Also liked the shared plates.
