Myself & 10 others dined at your restaurant this evening for a birthday. We are absolutely disgusted with one of the co-owners (male) and his up tight attitude. 2 hours we waited for our food, to be told " we don't dine for big tables like yours" after we asked how long our food was away. He then further said... More

Recently moved to the area and it was a delight to discover such a great place: outstanding customer service, great fresh home-made food and a lovely atmosphere! We'll definitely be back to try the whole menu, one item at a time!

My Husband and I are local and enjoy going to the Sandbar, the meals are of good quality and my Husband particularly likes the oysters. Waitress service friendly and easy going , cost a little more than some other restaurants on the same strip. Service quick and efficient and outdoor or indoor dining areas.

We live nearby and really want the local restaurants and cafes to do well... but some make it very hard! As a couple we have dined here on a Friday night on 4 different occasions (arriving around 8pm) and it's been pretty good. However, when in a larger group of people and arriving at 630/7pm, it was a different (and... More

Lovely setting on the parklands. Very attentive staff and the food was delicious, fresh and well presented. You couldn't get a better meal for their specials prices.

Had read plenty of reviews of this café. Most were good. We both enjoyed our lunches. As it was full inside [due to Christmas get togethers] we chose to sit outside with all the passing foot traffic not the best spot. Would recommend this café if seating was available inside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Sandbar. Excellent and friendly service coupled with innovative & delicious dishes like tempura olives and ossobuco with a twist. Highly recommended.

We arrived as a group of four to eat at The sandbar. On arrival we were told that they were very busy and meals would take about 45 mins. To be fair thats ok as long as you're informed of the situation and we were happy to chat and wait anyway. (due to our chatting we didn't even order for... More
