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.

Once again we had an outstanding dining experience at Sails. This has always been our go to restaurant for special occasions and we are never disappointed. Being lactose tolerant poses difficulties for many restaurants but I am always delighted that I can be catered for, without any fuss at all, and without compromising my dining experience.

From the time we arrived until the time we left we felt like special customers. Ms Dobson who greeted and seated us was friendly and welcoming and our waiter Ivan was outstanding. We have encountered him before on previous visits and it was a pleasure to be served by him again.

I give this restaurant my highest recommendation for food and service. I know of no other in Auckland who operate at this level of fine dining. The fact that the restaurant was full in these more difficult times tells you that they are doing something right!

15 of us enjoyed an excellent lunch on the occasion of our Club’s 82nd Birthday.
A beautiful selection of food, great price and excellent service. We really enjoyed our lunch as well as the view of the Harbour Brdige and Yachts and the sunshine!
We look forward to a return visit.

Fabulous food, service and setting. The fish, chicken and lamb were all declared by our table of 6 as the best they had ever eaten. More than I would usually pay for a lunch out so up there price wise. However, I left the biggest tip I've ever left! Says it all.

Absolutely lovely. Great food, great friendly, knowledgeable service, great atmosphere making you feel special and beautiful view of the harbour and Harbour Bridge. Tables beautifully set with linen tablecloths and napkins and not too close to other diners. Thoroughly recommend.
