Description: 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.

My family enjoyed three-course lunch, excellent service, great atmosphere & fantastic harbour view there. All waiting staff was experienced with great knowledge of their menu & wine. You can rely on their advice. Food presentation was outstanding but taste was a bit average and a bit salty for us. Price is a bit high for family lunch. However they run special promotions from time to time, so checking their website before booking may be a good idea. Overall we enjoyed and will visit them again.

Loved my four courses, wine selection and service.
Thought the main was very generous in portions.
Only disappointment was I had to leave and go back to my hotel.

Dined here for a special occasion recently and weren't disappointed. The location is easy for parking, good views. We had the Chef's selection and all the diners were well pleased with all their selections. The waiting staff were all attentive and the wine list is very extensive. Although a fraction on the pricey side, have been before and will return again.

We read the reviews before arriving and decided we would give it a try - we like to make our own decision on restaurants and thought the location and standard of the restaurant should be good.

On arrival we thoought the restaurant was average, however the sincerity of the waiting staff was zero .... Joe, our waiter asked if our food was ok ... he acted as though he could not care less, it was not just Joe, the general attitude of the staff was awful......... insincere and impersonal.

We would not return to this restaurant...... if all you care about is a view of harbour bridge and mediocre food then visit but if you want good service, excellent food and a great ambiance..... do not bother, as you will not get it here.

nice dining room, and good place for lover diner or business also.
The carte is nice and service OK, nevertheless the wine list is too expensive and not good value for money. But a good place to dine once I would say. The service was a bit slow...and we asked 10 times bread....
