We had good service but other friends had very poor service the night before and subsequently left after an hour of waiting before they saw any wait staff to take their orders.

Off the cruise ship riding around in our rental buggy we found ourselves on Catseye Beach at lunch time. Sails has a great view of the beach with plenty of shade to permit noonday dining in comfort. The large crowd of tourist did make for some confusion over which group was next for a table and how many tables were... More

Whilst it's in a lovely setting, the menu could do with an overhaul. The selections sound wonderful but the meals themselves were rather bland and uninviting to look at. Burgers were all served with cheap, sugar-filled sesame topped buns that fell apart upon the first bite. Even the BLT was served on a burger bun. Odd. The pumpkin chicken salad... More

Go here for the view and the service. Food was edible but not very tasty. We did not return as we felt it was quite overpriced for the bland food we ate. Breakfast was better, but service at breakfast was hit or miss.

I booked the table for 20 people for my hen's night and it was a great night. The waitress was excellent as he looked after all of us and no one else or other tables. He was always there and will service us straight away when we need. Great service, great food and great atmosphere.

Sails restaurant was average for breakfast but lunch was better with the southern fried chicken being tasty. It's mainly the position of Sails that is terrific, you couldn't get a better spot on the beach to dine.
