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.

Sails is an absolute must for all occasions offering delicious food and an excellent wine list and the service is always friendly but professional standards are maintained at all times. It is well located on Westhaven Drive a short distance from the city centre with ample parking. The view from the restaurant is stunning especially in the evenings with outlooks over the marina, harbour bridge and the city and perfect for entertaining overseas visitors.

Last night, we had an exceptional dining experience at Sails Restaurant. The ambiance was elegant, with stunning views of the marina adding to the overall charm. The service was impeccable, with attentive and knowledgeable staff ensuring our evening was flawless. Every dish we ordered was a masterpiece, from the fresh, flavorful seafood to the exquisite desserts. The presentation was beautiful, and the taste exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have asked for a better night out. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a perfect dining experience in Auckland.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant to go for lunch or dinner. This was our second time. We were here last month for lunch for the three course special. The food and cocktails were fab so we decided to return but for dinner this time. The food were once again so good. My fiancé said her duck and the chicken were melt in your mouth. The Snapper Cerviche is absolutely fab. And the desserts lovely. Big credits to the chef as the food was consistent with last time and we were really impressed. The restaurant itself is really nice and the views so impressive. Last night our waiter from last time recognised us and welcomed us back. We thought that was really nice
Highly recommend Sails. It's a must visit for sure. We are already booked for the end of the month this time returning with my sister. Thank you to the team at Sails for a wonderful dining experience.
