Went to Sails for our last dinner while in Rarotonga. Restaurant is part of the Sailing Club. Food was good, service a bit slow and some items did get forgotten until we chased them up. Good location on a nice evening (we copped a big downpour.

We had lunch on a sunny day at the Sails Restaurant. The best was the view. Although the restaurant was not full, we waited for more than half an hour for our drinks, although we even asked once again for them (no cocktails or difficult stuff). Meals took another while. The menu says you should entertain your children at the... More

Absolutely loved the whole experience, right on the beach, fantastic food, just a pity we left it until our last night to try. Myself and my daughter had the Moana Nui trio of fish and it was delicious - easily the best fish dish of the holiday. One son had the FOD - broadbill and demolished it, the other son... More

I had the trio of fish and the wife had a seafood Caesar salad, both were large portions and cooked to perfection. Great to sit on the deck and look out over the lagoon on a nice night. Happy hour is also great with cocktails $10.

We ate here a couple of times. It was really nice food, a great happy hour and it was so lovely sitting watching all the activity on the lagoon. One of my favourites.

Restaurant didn't appear very busy on the night we dined but the service was slow and the food was only average but great location. Wasn't a very impressive menu either.

Thank kirstin546
