Thought the ambience was nice and the service was lovely. Was just not a fan of the paella (very basic) nor the garlic bread. The entrees were ok - tacos amazing. But I wouldn't order this meal again.

Enjoyable experience. Food quality was great- really enjoyed the $99 per head dinner option. Discovered a new lovely Shiraz as part of the meal. Staff were friendly and reasonably attentive.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic! Great cocktails. My only feedback would be on arrival we sat down and they assumed we would want to wait for our friends before we had a drink. I went and asked if if we could order something. Nothing was a problem. Rally enjoyed the meal and would be back again.

The food is always fantastic at South Sailor. The covid dinner package is great too, a good deal. Except if you don't drink alcohol, then it probably isn't very good value.

To dine in you must accept $100 a head with a set menu and drinks included for 2 hours. COVID is presenting challenges however if you ask for $100 per head, the quality needs to step up for the main, desert and wine. The entree was fantastic but was not enough to offset the rest not meeting a price point that hatted restaurants in Sydney currently ask. Stick with the online menu (get whatever you want takeaway) and drink elseware during COVID as the current offering for dining in is a waste of money.

There was a mix up with the reservation via OpenTable. We thought we were only changing the time slot but the date changed as well, we don't know why. The staff at South Sailor were extremely accommodating (and luckily another reservation had cancelled) so our party (including Sydney visitors) didn't have to find another last minute venue. The food was super tasty as usual and although you are limited to a set menu at the moment, the kitchen managed an allergy requirement easily. We had a lovely, fun and delicious lunch.
