Visited this restaurant with some good friends.Had good expectations and was not disappointed. We all had a fish meal following some Bluff oysters both natural and battered - very light batter and delicious. Service was great.

For many years we have dined at Sails for those special occasions. We especially enjoy seafood so this is our restaurant. The outlook is stunning, service friendly but not obsequious. Bluff oysters; a joy. John Dory outstanding. Desserts gorgeous.

What a wondeful Mother's Day meal we had at Sails restaurant. The Trevally starter and the grilled snapper main were the best fish dishes ever. Highly recommend and was reasonably priced for the special day.

Sails Restaurant has an amazing location. Set in the middle of Westhaven Marina, beside the Harbour Bridge, with breathtaking views of the harbour. There are few views in the world that capture the essence of the city than the one from Sails Restaurant. A couple of minutes from the centre of Auckland, yet in a world of its own, with unlimited free parking at the door, Sails Restaurant is not just about its location. Over the last three decades the restaurant has forged its reputation as one of New Zealand’s top restaurants through an uncompromising belief in using only the freshest ingredients, the most talented chefs, and professional waiting staff. The menu at Sails is seafood focused, but also includes New Zealand’s finest beef and lamb. The full menu and all the details can be found on our website.
