Description: 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.

The staff at Sails made this the best dining experience I have had. Ever. The food was wonderful, beautifully prepared and presented. The ambience was delightful - warm and inviting, with views of the Marina, and acoustics that made it easy to hear the people at our table without hearing conversations from the tables around us. But the service is what really sets Sails in a league of their own. Setting the perfect balance between personable and professional, they performed as a well-choreographed team to make us feel welcome and valued guests.

I booked a table to celebrate my partner's birthday and our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Attentive but not overwhelming staff and great food and drinks. We were well looked after and although we did not have desserts after the big meal, staff made sure we still got lovely, cute mini sweets and a candle to wish us happy Bday and anniversary. Great ambience too. Highly recommended!

We loved our dining experience at sails. Not only was the food world class but the waiting staff too. The view of the bridge and marina lit up at night was truly magical. Thankyou Sails we'll be back!

After a considerable gap in time from last dining at Sails, our group of nine was not disappointed. The extensive menu catered for all tastes and the seafood choices were varied and delicious. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was exceptional and friendly with particular attention paid to the guest of honour who was celebrating her 90th birthday.

The view of the marina, harbor and bridge is beautiful. The food was prepared perfectly for the entire table. The service provided by the waitstaff and management was excellent.
