Situated at the heart of the West Haven overlooking many yachts and the Auckland Harbour bridge is Sails.
Sails is a contemporary upscale restaurant serving modern ‘surf n turf’ dishes for those wanting a special date, night out or occasion.
It is an award winning restaurant and its fish and dessert dishes are spectacular.
Sails is a great place to take a client or customer to impress if you’re a business man as they will be wowed by the food and service.
Walking up the stairs and seeing the large artistic piece as you walk in, the whole place feels grand and the service is great too. Happy to go through the menu with you politely and explaining the specials for the day with a smile.
The price is somewhat reasonably typical for an upscale restaurant. You’re paying for the views and ambience.
Their mains are exquisite and their price reflects this – be prepared to pay a good sum.
The menu is truly upscale and have an array of meats such crayfish, premium steak cuts, lamb, chicken, duck and of course fish.
Their fish dishes, particularly the Snapper were great. Nice crisp skin and cooked just right so the fresh fish meat is tender and delicious. Their lamb was cooked right and paired with well the eggplant puree.
Their dessert are also definitely a highlight – just enough to finish your mains but not super indulgent sweet to make you sweet. Had the Chocolate Fondant which was perfect and matched delicately with the pistachio ice cream.
