Sails on the Bay

Posted by


In the ever fickle hospo industry, keeping your restaurant pulsating can be a tricky mission. However it’s one that Sails on the Bay has cleverly accomplished.

It only feels like a drop in the ocean since owners Derek and Monica Fuller launched their beach front beauty in 1994, dishing up French classics, flecked with modern strokes.

To celebrate 20 years in the game, they are featuring a retrospective dish every two weeks from the past two decades; and just as fashion ebbs and flows, Sails has gone through its fair share of rough waters, foams and smears. Nevertheless, the chosen dishes are standing up to the test of time, proving just as popular now as they were in the past.

A generous plate of pink roasted duck breast with leg confit, hearty winter cabbage and a fairly sweet and sour blackcurrant jus, (1998) doesn’t feel a minute out of place.

Likewise with the crispy skin Atlantic salmon, partying wonderfully with celeriac fondant, creamed spinach, seared scallops, all finished off with a chambord sauce (2001).

It’s fun to step back in time- overlooking the peaceful white sands with a glass of textured single vineyard Viognier; rich in apricot and honeysuckle goodness.

Stop by to share in the memories… and the lamb medallions. Here’s to the next 20 years!
