“Give it a miss”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

over cooked mussels that were like eating rubber. Moreton bay bugs cooked for what felt like 2 hours and destroyed. corked wine - which the waitress didn't believe us and had to ask the manager to come over. Considering there were 8 of us for food and we were really spending the food and service were pretty poor. Good cocktails though. Maybe eat elsewhere and come here for sundowners.

“Cold breakfast”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

I understand that it's hard to keep a buffet breakfast warm but it's so expensive and to have a cold breakfast isn't right. Next time I'm at Hamilton will try the breakfast at the reef hotel.

“Great value and atmosphere on the island”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Hamilton after the busy season so we found all the services on the island exceptional. We had delicious food at Sails and the customer service was excellent. Definitely try the steak with peppercorn sauce; the sauce was to die for. Beautiful location by the beach and pool

“Good breakfast spot”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We enjoyed our breakfasts at sails. It is self serve and does a fine job for type of restaurant it is. It is very good for what it is - just not a 4 or 5 star type of restaurant. It's more of a cafeteria atmosphere. The staff was friendly and did a good job of keeping the birds from getting on the tables. We liked sitting outside under umbrellas. Cook did a great job on eggs.

“Not bad for families”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Great location and nice food but the basic decor and lack of table service don't gel with the inflated prices. Kids eat from their own buffet which is a good idea if you have picky eaters.
