Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

the ambience was casual but lovely as we were seated at a nice table on the balcony overlooking the pier and harbour. The food was fabulous! We ordered their signature seafood platterfilled with lobster, slipper bugs, mud crab, shrimps, fish and fish cakes. All were...locally-sourced, so fresh and perfectly cooked, but the standouts were definitely the 1kg Yasawa lobster in coconut mronay sauce and the slipper bugs - some of the best we've ever had! The staff was equally fabulous - so warm, genuine and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a memorable evening at Port Denarau.More

We came for our 30 year Anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was beautiful with a view on the pier towards the water. Our table was decorated black and red with balloons, very unexpected and thoughtful. I ordered a grilled fish and my husband ordered fried fish...and prawns the Bula plate. The food was fresh and the service from our waiter, Viline, was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. We even received an Anniversary song from the hostess and the other waiters. The finally was a complimentary dessert with “Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate on the plate. I added a photo. Overall it was an excellent experience and highly recommend! They made our celebration very special! Thank you Sails and Viline!More

Our dinner was sublime! The entire crew is extremely sweet, attentive and professional. Especially Sue, who took care of us and Mary as well. They really go the extra mile to make the experience exceptional which matches the food perfectly. The best food we had...in Fiji BY FAR. If you are in Fiji you simply must go.More

The food and the service was excellent. We asked for a table out on the balcony and that is where we sat. Later bookings tended to be sitting further in. It was lovely to see the marina boats going about their business while we waited...for our meal which was amazing. The staff were all absolutely delightful.More

A beautiful evening on the 8th May 2024 it was our 25th wedding anniversary and as we are in Fiji there was nowhere better to go than our favourite restaurant The Sails at Denarau Port. Sue was our main waitress (sorry I forgot the other...ones name but she was equally as good) . It was our 4th visit and the place just improves with age (a bit like myself) . The Kokoda was the best and the tuna was absolutely delicious. Thanks Sails for making our anniversary special. Allan & Moira ScottMore

If you don't want to phone them, I would probably try messaging them on their FaceBook page, as they are quite active on there under Sails Denaru Hope this helps.
