We have been here several times and it never disappoints. We got a table near the window for the first time however which offers stunning views of the marina and auckland harbour/bridge. Entrees were faultless lovely flavours and a good size. Our regular crayfish was perhaps slightly undercooked this time but the mornay is done beautifully. Also highly recommend the... More

Sometimes you need to take an important supplier somewhere you can talk and have relative privacy. Last Friday Sails was that perfect place. Booked at 11am for 1.30pm, table by the window facing NE, better still window is open so light breeze blowing in. Service was attentive and slick and food was very good. 1 dozen bluff to share, 6...

We came here recently with a work group, and not a single 1 of our 16 guests was disappointed. The menu is based a lot on seafood and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. It's certainly not a restaurant to dine at if you're concerned about how much it'll cost but if you're wanting to enjoy great food, wine &... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant luncheon at this venue, which was recommended to us, and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant has delightful views over the Marina - which will distract the most ardent foodie because of the for sale signs on a number of attractive yachts close in. The restaurant is quite large and on the first floor but I... More

We were lucky to be given a 5 course degustation Grab One for Sails. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was great as well. We weren't rushed but the food came out quite quickly after each course but the restaurant was filling up and we were an early booking so they may have... More

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.
