Came for an early dinner. The bbq’s were not hot enough & took forever to heat. Eventually we were able to cook our steak that was quite tough. Maybe we would have enjoyed the experience more had there not been so many flies...... Until we...More

We tried the outback bbq pack for $30 each, sadly did not feel this was value for money. Salads were flavourless and meat was small. Also cooking your own meat was not for me.

Worst customer service from Food and Beverage manager, visited on August 29, 5.15pm. This guy shouldn’t be in the hospitality business. Arrogant and not helpful. We are staying at Sails, and loving it. Maybe B grade staff go to the Pioneer
