South Sailor was fantastic!!! The food was delicious, came out very quickly! Cannot wait to dine in again once everything going on in the world at the moment passes! 5 stars!
Service is awesome and the food is delicious. This is our go to place especially in special occasions.
Delicious food, lovely staff. Would definitely return and recommend.
Five girlfriends met for your fantastic Thursday night $15 poke bowls which we all enjoyed-so delicious and healthy. The atmosphere was relaxed and tables placed well apart for social distancing outside. Our server was pleasant and took our photo after asking if it was ok to touch our phone. We will return as long as we can to this great venue.
Really enjoyed our food but dishes should be spaced out so that the do ing experience was more relaxed. Waitresses were great but we felt rushed. Will be back but will request time between dishes.
When I visit the South coast I want to eat every meal here! A wide range of choices means you have to return again and again to try the lot. Worth special mention are the South sailor fish tacos, the delicate snapper and prawn dumplings in broth, and the snapper fillet on smoked aubergine with edamame and artichoke. I have smelled the Nepalese fish and prawn curry go wafting by, and the beef burger - delicious temptations for my next visit.
We share the seafood platter, it's a great way to sample all of the dishes and to try things I might not of ever tried before.
Will definitely be back
My new favourite restaurant! The food is fresh, healthy and delicious, and the drinks are equally as amazing!
Really enjoyed the food. Good quality and well priced.
Outstanding service and excellent food.
The food at South Sailor is tasty and delicious.
Lovely food and great service. Lots of options fresh and cooked, we will be back.
Very popular and very busy but we had great food and good value. The service could have been better but it was very busy. The loud music made it difficult to have a conversation
My husband and I love this place. The atmosphere is fun and the service is friendly.
I think the standard of food for the price is right. Drinks are great and wine is a small list but adequate for the type of restaurant it is. We alway enjoy our night here, and you should book to avoid disappointment.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, excellent wine list and attentive service. A great night had by all!
Great Food, Great Service. Our favourite restaurant in Thirroul. Thursday night Poke Bowl special is great value.
Again, great comfort food. Wait service was just right and go early.
Was given a gift voucher for my birthday,very disappointed of how we were treated
I enjoyed dining at South Sailor, nice ambience great menu and good selection of drinks.
My only complaint would be with the waitress she seemed stressed and it looked like she really didn't want to be there, she wasn't happy at all.
Drinks took a while to get to the table as well. I was halfway through my main by the time wine came.
I would definitely return and give it another try
We have been several times to this restaurant and we are never ever disappointed! We love the venue, the food, the atmosphere, the service…
It is our favourite local restaurant!
We celebrated Valentines Day with a lunch at South Sailor and were more than pleased with our experience. We have dined there before and have always experienced exceptional service and excellent food. Julia deserves a special mention for her customer service and her ability to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
Excellent variety of flavours in both the food and drinks menu. Definitely be back to explore the rest the menu. Very reasonably priced for the quality.
Fresh sustainable seafood with great seasonal variation of menu. Great service and no poorly amplified obtrusive muzak. More of this kind of dining experience please!
Food is great, staff friendly, relaxed but very efficient
we had a fantastic night and enjoyed everything about South Sailor and will definitely go back
Great food and service...friendly atmosphere..will be back again. Close walk home.
South Sailor never disappoints. Great food, friendly and very courteous staff, Highly recommended.
Graham and his staff make you feel very comfortable and relaxed.
A most enjoyable evening and the food and service - excellent. Standout dish was the kingfish ceviche coupled with plump and tasty oysters. We chose the tasting plate - a good chance to test the kitchen skills and they did not disappoint. Accompanied by a very good Lark Hill Riesling! We will definitely return.
Very pleasant outdoor dining experience! All of my family enjoyed their meals. Staff were very attentive. Will definitely dine at South Sailor again soon!
I love everything about South Sailor. Staff are friendly and helpful when ordering which is important. Meals came out in good time. We had 3 people at our table and enjoyed 3 courses which were all delicious. The meringue desert is absolutely delicious, I recommend trying that. The ambiance is just right. I can't fault any details of our booking.
Really great food at very reasonable prices for the quality.
Happy helpful staff.
A very enjoyable dining experience- we’ll be back!
Good food/drink and atmosphere, would recommend for sure
Food was delicious and the service was friendly. Will definitely dine here again.
The food was just so fresh and very tasty. Have not been disappointed and would gladly recommend this restaurant.
Poor service. Plenty of staff but still took a long time for order to be taken. Main Meals delivered at separate times 12 minutes apart meaning we ate separately.
Better places to go
Always very very good service, and the food is relentlessly top quality. Never any complaints about the tastes. The only negative is that you pay $100-$150 for 2 people and leave still hungry (the serves are too small guys!). The sashimi is excellent but the pieces of fish may have actually decreased in size since we first ate there, the $28 plate is certainly no more than a taster plate really and should be coupled with a second separate plate to fill up.
We have dined at South Sailor a few times now and have always enjoyed our meals, the friendly wait staff and the atmosphere. The cocktails are a little weak (in terms of alcohol content) but other than that it’s always worth a visit.
10/10 would recommend. Great service, food was exceptional. Can't rate high enough.
