Probably the best dining experience I have had all year. The swordfish + scallops were particularly good.

“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

this was ok but not as great as some others we have been too along this strip, fish/chips was very salty and nothing spectacular, expensive wine, but in saying that my husband thought it was awesome!

“Great location, good service, lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2011

Dining at Sails was our special "treat" for the weekend away celebrating my partner's birthday. It is excellently located at the Southern end of Noosa Beach, away from Hastings Street.

I'm no foodie so won't attempt to ramble on about the style / presentation, simply put it was excellent, although for a Sunday night (half full restaurant) I was surprised that it took 35 mins for mains to come out. That aside, from our cocktails through appetiser and mains (I had special of the day, kingfish), it was superb.

The only flaw, was the positioning of a waiter's table (cutlery, menus etc stored there) right next to what was supposed to be the most special / romantic (as requested) table in the establishment. Waiters constantly appeared next to our table to retrieve items etc, interrupting the view, and our conversation. I pointed this out to mangement upon leaving, so hopefully they won't use this any more.

Overall 8/10....I would highly recommend a meal here. The wine list is spectacular!

“Great view, shame about the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

We went to sails recently for an early family meal and the place was lovely and the service was good so we ordered lots of food with high hopes, but were let down by almost every meal. Steak and mash were both quite good but the eggplant canneloni was just such a poor cafe style meal (I know, why would you choose this, but it sounded really good) it was even burnt. Other dishes were poor to average for the reviews this place gets. Maybe the chef was off when we went.
