Visited here for lunch on a beautiful sunny day, chosen for the outdoor dining experience looking over the water. That part of it was lovely but unfortunately our food was far from it. Just ordered chicken parmi's with chips & salad (despite resevations over the price, assuming it must be of quality) - there was minimal napoli sauce and the... More

My partner and I took our friends out to dinner. The food was great but service from the wait staff was poor. When we arrived a large group had ordered but we were left sitting there for quit sometime with out anyone coming to take drink or food orders. We eventually had to call a waitress over to order our... More

Took two family members from Melbourne, renowned for their fussiness. The kitchen was about to close so we ordered quickly and were served quickly. We were appreciative of the fact they let us still come and eat. There was a good selection of food and it was well priced, well sized and tasty. The visitors liked it so much they... More

I'm all for giving restaurants a second and third chance. Sometimes places can be off their game just for a blink of an eye but sadly Sails just doesn't cut the mustard. First visit was ordinary, second visit mediocre and the third visit will definately be my last visit. Chicken over cooked, veg. cooked too long in the microwave that... More

Don't expect anything more than just a Pub Meal - steak and Guinness pie was OK, but not a real pie. View was great.

Great location, not so great service. In the past we have often enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the view and quiet drink. Trying to support our local business. We have taken our dog, which the staff have provided water for in the past. Not today, we were told the dog could not be there, by the young male officious bar tender.... More

A nice restaurant, staff were welcoming, but the service was very slow. After a twenty minute wait, we were finally able to order. Half an hour after ordering we were served, but during that time the children were getting antsy. I ordered the Seafood Chowder, my partner ordered the Chicken Ceasar Salad. Others had the seafood risotto, chicken parmigiano, and... More

Given the number of restaurants serving great sea food in the Hobart area, the chef at Sails should hang his / her head in shame. I ordered fish of the day (usually the safest bet in a new restaurant experience) but it was poorly cooked and served with large, bland roast potatoes and vegetables as if carved out by a... More

We recently received a flyer in our letterbox announcing that the Hotel had a new chef and that we were invited to try out the new menu. As an incentive, one main course meal would be supplied at no charge. We assumed that if a business would go to the trouble and expense of mailing out a flyer, then something... More
