Amazing! Perfect in every way! Great location, staff, food and drink. We had a fantastic wedding at Sails couldn't have asked for a better venue.

Now this place is in a class of its own! We had a very small wedding so we booked the private dining room. The staff were magnificent, they went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy and comfortable. The staff complimented me on my dress (and meant it too!!!!! Every bride loves to hear that she picked the right dress hahaha) And took special care of my parents. The managers contacted me to make sure I was happy with the evening and even took the time to have a chat to me when I returned to the venue to have dinner with my parents. (I got a big hug from the wonderful manager Kohm).

Such a beautiful venue. Delicious food and wine. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Shelley was a great coordinator and had everything organised and made us feel at ease. No issue on the day when we had to move the ceremony inside. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!

Our wedding at Sails had a few rough glitches at times, but the Event Manager, Farah, was amazing and worked tirelessly with us to make sure our day was perfect. And in the end it was. The location is amazing, the food was delicious and service was perfect.

Our wedding cake was made by the pastry team at the wedding venue so it was hassle free and easy. It was also absolutely delicious and exactly what we wanted.

Great venue gorgeous views. Staff on the night were great with myself and my husband catering to all our needs. Event manager Farah extremely helpful in the lead up to the wedding. a little disappointing that during the ceremony there was lots of sun glare as one of the umbrellas had been damaged with wind and this was not fixed in time for the wedding. other than this food was wonderful and venue looked great. So thankyou.

For the price paid it was quite good. They were lacking on drinks service during the night. The food was lovely and adequate. The events manager Brooke was great and always available. The venue was amazing.

Everything was incredible! From the location to the food and to the staff. The one negative was that we hired the whole venue but apparently 'whole venue' only means until the end of the meal, not for the entire night. Something to be aware of for future couples.

Sails on the bay is a perfect venue for a wedding. The views are amazing, the food is delicious and the service superb. Brooke was our wedding coordinator and was incredibly professional, responded promptly to all emails, made sure everything ran smoothly and we felt totally at ease knowing she would make sure our day was memorable. We will be regulars at the restaurant now especially celebrating anniversaries. Could not recommend highly enough especially the events room.

I had my reception at Sails on the Bay and they have an amazing pastry chef and are well renowned for their desserts so I used them for our wedding cake. I provided them with a picture of what I wanted it to look like and it was absolutely spot on.

Sails on the bay is a perfect place for wedding! I fell in love with it once I saw the bay view through the event room window! The event manager Brooke is extremely thoughtful and helpful! Not only did she help me save a great amount of budget but also made me at ease in preparing the wedding. She was like my sister help me to keep everything organized! Big thanks to Brooke!

What an absolutely stunning Venue this is. My husband Sammy and I could not be happier with our choice of getting married on the beautiful Terrace at Sails and the wedding reception there after with those amazing beach views. The day turned out to be everything we wished for was so perfect thanks to all the staff and the wonderful event manager at Sails.

My wedding cake was made by Sails on the Bay's wonderful Antonia Abusio. Not only was it it amazing and exactly what I imagined, it was also flawless! The handmade sugar flowers were stunning. The attention to detail was evident, and the marble chocolate cake was delicious! Perfect!

Custom made cake. 3 square tier to have as dessert for 120 people. Made with two flavours of raspberry with dark chocolate and cointreau with white chocolate. White fondant icing over the top completed the image of the traditional cake while the flavours made it a cake to enjoy eating rather than to preserve. Guests all raved about the cake with some saying "best cake ever". Could not have been happier! Loved sharing the kept top layer with a cuppa with close family the week after the wedding.

Stefanie was a dream to deal with for a brilliant location and setting. The view was a focal point for this venue but the atmosphere created made for a very intimate feel with enough space to not feel cramped. Very easy for our suppliers to communicate with and any set up required.

Having our ceremony and reception at Sails on the Bay could not have been a better choice. We hired out the full venue and had quite a number of surprises for our guests. The view of the sunset was stunning with the glass windows. Stefanie and Scott were incredible with the planning and coordinating on the day, respectively. Stuart, the in-house pastry chef, create the most amazing 600 piece dessert table. We had the most perfect wedding there.

The staff were amazing to deal with during planning, which I did from interstate and they covered all the details. We had our ceremony on the deck and reception in their function room. Only minor complaint was feedback from guests that some of the serving staff could have been better.

Jonathan & Danica D.

Beautiful location plus the staff bent over backwwards to make sure everything went smoothly. Due to the weather they moved the ceremony into the resteraunt and they were able to over come a power shortage.$3

Fantastic venue. Everything was absolutely perfect. I had heard some horror stories about wedding venues and was worried but I felt like they exceeded our expectations in everything. We had so many compliments from the guests too. The staff were very friendly and professional. Food was sensational, drink glasses were never empty, canopies were plenty, the setting was perfect. We had our ceremony on the Terrace and it was stunning with the beach as the backdrop. We had our cake made by the pastry chef at the venue and it was very well made.
