To celebrate Boni graduating, being employed and turning 23 (triple the joy!) we dined at Sails. The restaurant is nestled in the Westhaven marina, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest harbour and is well positioned away from the city noise. Inside, its all quite breathtaking with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing its perfect location. For entrees we chose Salt and pepper squid, two sets of Fresh oysters with Forvum Chardonnay vinegar, Duck leg confit and some Tiger prawns. I was a big fan of the squid as well as the oysters. My main, the Grilled market fish was incredibly fresh and delicious with its crispy skin. For dessert I had the baked lemon cream, of which I am still reminiscing about. It was smooth and creamy, had the right amount of tang to it and just glided in my mouth. I also had a taste of my fellow diners’ dishes but you could also tell how delectable they were as everybody soon became reluctant to share. The restaurant is seafood based but they are also award winning in lamb and beef, I do suggest you stick with these options. Service was impeccable. Overall, it was perfect in atmosphere, interior, location, service and food. This is definitely something special and a must-visit of Auckland. Honestly, we give it full points.
