Lovely location but that's where the good times end I'm afraid. We only ordered a selection of starters but had to wait well over an hour before they arrived. When they did, every dish was below standard and very much overpriced in my opinion. Even the fries weren't crisp and, why on earth would you put wilted greens on the... More

Dropped in for lunch ordered a drink and thirty minutes later still no one had taken our order. We arrived at about 12.30 so the bistro was not even at capacity. Very disappointing, will not return.

Atmosphere and service was good however the food that we chose was poor given that we have been here many times in the past and have enjoyed the food hence our return visit. My wife and I chose the beef schnitzel that was offered on the menu as porterhouse steak however it was reconstituted beef mince and unlikely to have... More

I have been coming to the sailmaster to eat on and off for years. We had discovered that they had a salad and veg bar and prices had dropped- we made this a weekly option to go down and have a cheap meal and the option of our own choices from the salad and veg bar, to here that this... More

Great location that overlooks marina. Come early if you want a table near the window or book your table. Food is plentiful and great on the pallet. Fresh and varied menu. Price is good and staff are delightful. If you like a coffee after your meal and want it hot, remember to ask.

Not sure what planet the restaurant / kitchen is on. I order a chicken schnitzel with pepper sauce ( $21.90 ) Saturday night 18/02/2017. It took almost an hour to arrive to the table. The schnitzel looked dried up and the chips were all fused together on the plate. Looked like a birds nest of chips. the plate had a... More

As a family it's always the first place we go to for a meal. Not once have we been disappointed, family friendly area with a wide variety menu.

Well after many years of dining at this previously great venue, the newer style has not gone down too well in our group. I phoned to enquire as to whether the soup and salad bar will ever return but the lady was not too encouraging with her response. It would seem they don't really need or want customers at the...
