Yes, most of the staff seem like they would rather be doing ANYTHING else but working there, but you just have to get into Island mentality! The food in the evening does take a while to arrive, but it is worth the wait! Locally caught fish was so good! They always asked if you've booked but managed to seat us... More

Turned up at 5 hoping to get the kids an early dinner. The lady sat on her phone for 5 minutes before coming to see us. We told her we'd like a table for dinner. She said dinner doesn't start till 6 so we left. Later found that they served bar snacks etc. would have been nice for her to... More

A group of 8 went there for dinner and drinks. We must of waited nearly 45 mins for our drinks to arrive and by the time the food arrived which was well over an hour we were all starving. The restaurant wasn't even busy so I have no idea what the hold up was all about. It is a shame... More

Sails is in a fabulous location with the deck looking out over the lagoon. Ideal for family dining. They have a seafood Caesar salad which was awesome which we had to try on several occasions.

This was the only place we went to in Raro that was disappointing. On our first night we had cocktails there. They tasted really watery. Wanting to give them another chance we went for dinner he next night but the food was decidedly average. Go for a beer and to watch the sailing but don't go for the culinary or... More

We visited Sails as two couples and enjoyed the evening meal. It was a quiet night with not many diners in so the service was prompt and efficient. All the staff were pleasant and despite not having a very big kitchen the chef and staff did an amazing job. A very varied menu leaves all taste buds covered, from the... More

Although we had to wait a long time for our meal it was very nice. It was nice to be able to have an outside table as the restaurant is right on the beach. Very close to our acomodation at Muri Beachcomber, just walk along the beach.
