Couldn't fault Sails. The battered whiting was spot on, the fish fresh and juicy and the batter light and flavoursome. We shared the squid and scallop entree which was a very accomplished starter. The meals were generous and the wine list while limited was eclectic enough to find something suitable. The Hill Estate Chardonnay from the Eden Valley was the... More

OMG.. The lobster... the dessert.. the service... thumbs up on all accounts. The chef there is just a wonder. I've never been so impresssed nor gob smacked. To say the 1.1kg lobster was melt in your mouth with all the trimmings would be an understatement. The dessert of roast plum and rice pudding just destroyed my mothers rice pudding. But... More

My wife and I shared the lobster, but kids enjoyed getting stuck in too! Starters very enjoyable - cheese with figs, scallops and squid both delicious, but the lobster Thermidor was the highlight. 500g half more than enough for 2, served with a beautifully dressed pear and Parmesan salad and roast potatoes. Reef and beef also very good. A great... More

I would never have picked this place as a family restaurant but we went there as a group booking for a family event. There were 25 of us. So there was a lot of room for error. But the night went off with out a hitch! All meals came at the same time, and they were all exactly as ordered.... More

Sails never disapoints. Fresh local produce with an excellent menu selection. Offer local wines by the glass. Staff efficient and need to be as this is a busy and well patronised restaurant of great merit. Booking is probably a good idea as can be busy.

A lovely gem of a restaurant. We enjoyed the seafood platter which provided a lot of variety - just a pity that 50% of it was deep fried...not our preference. The wait staff had great knowledge of matching wine that really hit the spot.

We were advised to book in advance and this was good advice. The service here is friendly and efficient, and the menu is varied and attractive I had the lobster thermidor pie interesting when it arrived and as I had no real idea of what it would look like it was a surprise. The taste was great Main course we... More

The moment we walked through the door the greeting we received won us over straight away, and thought if the food is as good as the greeting we are in for a good night. It did not disappoint, the food was up there with the best we have had and the service was so friendly, it made you want to... More

The lobster at Robe is very famous. A friend and I shared one and it was delicious and fresh. Although not really innovative in any way, the quality of the food made it a superb meal. My husband tried one of the fish dishes and enjoyed it too. The service was very friendly and professional. My only criticism would be... More
