    A Great restaurant and the location cannot be beaten. I must confess we have been going to the Venue for thirty five years before the renovations. Our fond memory of the Old Place was when we were there for My Mothers Birthday twenty years ago. Recommended, a great Restaurant and a place for Memories. Peter Ennis.

    Book in with your overseas and interstate guests (catch a ferry together - what a way to arrive) to Sails for a wonderful meal, professional and unobtrusive service. gorgeous views AND... whilst catching up you can actually hear each other and have a conversation. I love it here. It is one of my favourite places to eat in Sydney. The staff are really great.

    Disappointing food, entree prawns very good, fish main was dry and tasteless. Steak main undercooked and over priced.

    I have dined at Sails on several occasions prior to taking 4 close members to lunch there yesterday. It was a special occasion for us as 2 of the guests had just arrived from the US. The staff could not have been more attentive and, the window seat I had asked for gave all of us gorgeous views of the harbour. Thank you Sails!
