Great place and we really enjoyed the seafood sharing platter!
One of my favourite places to eat/drink. Perfect every time
Normally its amazing, but the soba dish I had didn't quite work for me.
Delicious fresh seafood. A gorgeous local find, a real treat to share with family and friends.
Very imaginative and beautifully prepared seafood dishes.
Best seafood lunch ever, and bottomless Proseco, truly divine!
We enjoyed our meal very much and the staff were helpful. One meal, the grilled fish ordered did come out cold which was the only downside.
Lovely food and good value. The paella was tasty, but the menu could have mentioned that it included chilli in the dish. Nice ambience.
Great food and service as always. Thank you South Sailor.
Lovely place, came based on the reviews. Cutely decorated, friendly staff and yummy food. A little bit pricey in my eyes but nice for a date night!
Enjoyed a lovely seafood platter. Delicious! Very friendly service. A charming restaurant for an evening out.
We loved dining here! The brunch is excellent value and fresh quality food. Perfect.
As usual a delicious meal with a good bottle of wine and a delightful waitress. What more can I say!
Always a delicious meal, fish curry is amazing!! Thank you
Food nice, alas service very slow. 25 mins before the order was taken. Food only arrived after we prompted them after waiting 30 mins for a single shared dish.
Exceeded our expectations! Delicious mix of Japanese influenced seafood….we’ll be back!
Excellent as always. Good food, wine, service and atmosphere.
We went here on a Sunday evening and were seated inside near the window. Service was friendly and prompt and we had no trouble finding something to like from the menu. Noise levels inside were low enough to easily converse. Prices were reasonable and represented value for money - between the two of us we bought 4 drinks and two great meals for under $100. Nice ambience and would happily return here in future.
Gorgeous as usual,
Beautiful fresh seafood, lovely service, so happy to be able to come back again after lockdown!
Great fresh seafood and tasty cooked seafood options. Very good drink options and the desserts were yum. Definately going back
Have been here twice in the last two weeks. There aren't many great restaurants on this part of the south coast but this place is a gem!
Best place in the Illawarra, couldn't fault anything!
We had a lovely meal. We were seated in the outdoor area which is fine on a lovely night. It was cool and wet last night. Our own fault as we left it late to book. My preference is to be inside, warmer and better atmosphere. We still had a nice night for an impromptu night out. (Hence the late booking.). We have even decided what we are going to have next time we visit.
Fantastic food and service. You cannot go wrong here. I’ve been twice and the quality is just amazing.
Hands down my favourite restaurant! Food is to die for the sashimi tacos and scallop and prawn tempura roll are not to be missed!! Literally make my family dine or takeaway during covid every time i come down to wollongong!
Absolutely love this place! service is friendly however not super attentive but simple.
Won’t ever stop coming here!
Second time in a week, another great night. Our favourite spot in Thirroul.
Food and service was fantastic. Value for money was amazing for the bottomless lunch
Great food with drinks to match. Will go again soon.
Lovely staff, beautiful setting and fab food.
South Sailornis a lovely dining spot! We took our two young children there and they loved their kids meals which were good value.
The main meals were delicious and filling. The menu has a wide variety of seafood and non seafood dishes. The cocktail menu is awesome!
The food was amazing, best seafood for 2 we have had in a long time, innovative and delicious. the service was fantastic, prompt and polite. Really great value for money as well. Overall it was a memorable and enjoyable experience. What a greet little gem to find.
This place had a good vibe for first time visit. The service was helpful & our choice of meals was spot on. Verygood value for money. We will be back!
Trendy & cosy little spot.
Enjoyed the food. A lot healthier than your usual seafood restaurants.
Love South Sailor, food is different & delicious!!!
Great value for excellent food, cool space. We were very impressed.
Beautiful food, great service, we booked in late so we were seated out the front, but would definitely recommend to anyone who loves fresh seafood, we will be back
Food was amazing. We got the seafood platter and it was amazing value, quality and quantity. Staff were attentive and cheerful.
