We came here recently with a work group, and not a single 1 of our 16 guests was disappointed. The menu is based a lot on seafood and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. It's certainly not a restaurant to dine at if you're concerned...More

Exceptional views across the marina to the harbour bridge. Food is always well presented and exceptional. Not too noisy either.

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.
