“TOP LOCATION”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Have eaten here on previous occasions and still think it is a little over priced, There food is good but is a little on the expensive side.
Even there drinks seem to be a bit pricey.
The service is good but nothing beats that deck overlooking the ocean.
A worry I had was all the sharp pieces of fencing wire that is sticking out of the sand, it will rip someones foot open and ruin there holiday, When I showed the waitress she said the usually cover it in sand but when we returned 3 days later it was all still sticking up in the air.
They are only opening them self's for litigation, I can imagine a small kid playing there one day and ripping his whole foot open as this very thick rusted wire.

“a good place for a family outing”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

we went to Sails twice for lunches - once with the extended family. Sails has a great location overlooking Muri beach and lagoon and is family-friendly. Food was good, service was fine. we'd be happy to return

“Beautiful food and excellent ocean views”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Although my lamb was overcooked when I asked for medium, I still can't complain about this place as the food was seriously tasty. Best sticky date pudding I've tasted, and excellent hot breakfasts also.

“two wonderful lunches”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We ate here twice while in Raro, both times for lunch. Both experiences were excellent: friendly helpful staff, excellent well-priced food, & a view of Muri Lagoon to die for. The first time we were warned that there'd be about a 20-minute wait for our meals, but this was because they were busy & we were happy to drink our fruit cocktails & enjoy the view. I enjoyed the seared prawn waldorf salad so much that I had it again on our second visit. Barry's ika mata was great (loved the 'island fries' on the side) & he enjoyed his fish bites with pawpaw salad as well. Highly recommended.

“Must have hit a bad day?”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We went for lunch as we had visited sails before and we had had such a great meal and service 5 years ago.
Somethings happened, the deco tired and food average once you got it......
Give it a shot you might get them on a good day.
