  • Sails Restaurant Dinner

    The food at Sails is the result of a two-part philosophy:
    “If you employ the best chefs and ensure they have access to only the freshest top quality ingredients you’ll get award-winning dishes”

    You can’t compromise on either, but of the two the chef is definitely the most important. The chef not only creates perfect dishes; he or she sends them out every night at the same high standard and in a reasonable time.

    So by following this simple philosophy Sails ensures that every diner gets great food, beautifully presented, and within a time frame that makes dining at Sails an enjoyable experience.

  • Yes, the adventure that began as a dream. A look that passed between two people. Dress up, make believe. A forgotten fantasy that became this surreal reality.

    A wedding is a time for friendship and laughter, for hope and happiness. It is a time set aside to celebrate love.

    But sometimes it seems hugely complicated, harder to organise than peace in Northern Ireland and basically more work than play.

    It has been Said that if a relationship can survive arranging a wedding the marriage will be a piece of cake.

    At Sails our goal is to make your Wedding Breakfast as special as you always dreamed. To ensure that the celebration is not only a huge success but that the work involved pales by comparison.

    The result, an evening worthy of this adventure you have begun.

    With Fabulous Food

    I have never eaten such incredible wedding food, ( and this is my sixth wedding this year ), let alone restaurant food. I can only relay pleasurable comments - or indeed ecstatic ones.Madeline Heron.

    At Sails we understand that this is not the family's Sunday Roast, as enjoyable as that can be. It is not the Saturday Night Buffet at The Golf Club, regardless of how much Dad loves the Pavlova.

    It is the single most important day of your life, so far. Or at least your Mother's. Whether it's the fall of the dress or the colour or perfume of a rose, no detail should be ordinary, especially the food.

    And that is why we only do a la carte menu service. We will bend over backwards in every way we can but we will not compromise quality. Your celebration is too important !

    With clean complimentary flavours in each dish you and your guests can enjoy the wonderful tastes found in the food of New Zealand. Plus your guests can enjoy this beautiful food without ever having to stand up. Well almost.

    There's the Ms's toast, the Fathers toast, the Father- In-Law's toast, the Best Man's toast, the Maid of Honour's toast, the Grooms toast, The Bride's toast ... And by this stage a few unexpected toasts from rather enthusiastic guests.

    And this is all happening while you are enjoying your meal.

    Served & Presented with Class

    We could not have wished for anything better. As you know this wedding was very special to us and its success was ensured through the spirit each of your team brought to the occasion. Long may the Littlejohn name bring the family spirit into such occasions.Lynne Mudgway

    The Littlejohn family have been in the restaurant business since the 1950's. Back in Wellington when the licensing laws created problems Valarie encouraged her guests to bring their own wine, even though the same laws were against such practice. This service resulted in numerous raids and one appearance in court, but many happy guests.

    It was not the bottle of wine that made the difference, but the extra mile they were prepared to go to ensure their guests had a wonderful evening.

    The times may have changed somewhat but the sentiment has not. It is this spirit that has been passed down and is still paramount to the service and presentation you will receive at Sails today.

    So in keeping with this level of excellence we offer a full al la carte professional service. What does that mean ? It means that your guests and yourselves will receive personalized, individual attention, throughout the whole evening.

    From the first drink, through to the final good-bye, our first class fine dining waiters will ensure that your guests' only concerns are just how much enjoyment they are having.
