Well-travelled Head Chef Jim Wilson has the canny knack of sourcing local ingredients to emphasise the cuisine and dishes he delivers at Sails. During the evening, the stimulating light show from the buildings, Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge and Opera House are just as much part of the restaurant’s decor as the flawless interior design.
Besides the deceptively effortless presentation of the dishes, you will notice a clever marriage of ingredients – all are carefully considered, resulting in a harmonious dish. If the theatre created by the waiter pouring the gazpacho into the ricotta mousse dish at the table doesn’t impress, the taste and texture definitely will. Chef Wilson will continue to astonish you with his flavour-balancing act in the scallops dish. The chicken jus doesn’t mask or overpower the plump, golden, seared scallops or the accompanying prosciutto and cos lettuce.
PSST! The cool way to arrive and leave is by ferry, which is right on the restaurant’s front doorstep.
