We dined here on 2 nights. Firstly the staff are just great, very friendly and helpful. It was no problem doing a little sharing. The new menu is varied and meals are generous in size. We had the panko chicken which we shared. The chicken was really delish and generous. The chats and mushies nice with a salad. $23 is... More

Compared to the two restaurants in the main Resort building (Seabelle and Maheno), the Sand Bar is certainly more affordable and casual. We had steaks (medium/rare), which were cooked perfectly, served with lovely hot chips and salad at $25 pp. Cocktail hour offers two for one at $12. We ate by 6pm, then made our way to see the magnificent... More

We visited on the first night of our stay & both had excellent meals: surf & turf & chilli, prawn & scallop spaghetti at reasonable prices. We made the mistake of returning the following night & ordering the same as the specials board had not changed. Both meals lacked the prawn element & were returned. Prawns were added but chilli...

Nice pool and has shower and changing facilities next to ferry port so good place to wait for ferry home. Typical burgers and fried food menu. Salads were drowned in dressing but servings were generous.

We had a lunch and take away pizza here and overall the food was very good. However, the music selection was terrible and felt that the whole area needed a really good scrub clean.

The Sand Bar is our favorite of the bars/cafes etc. Its casual and relaxed, pools to splash and relax in and pool tables to have a game.

Another good food and drink establishment at kingfisher. This is a more relaxed spot where you can swim, play pool, have a beer and a pizza. Its down near the jetty. Would recommend this or the jetty bar for the younger crowd. Had a pizza and it was great.

I recently dropped into The Sandbar bistro at kingfisher in the hope of a great cheap meal as I've done for the last 10 years. This time i was disappointed by the outrages prices the bistro has applied. A very decent large meal used to cost around $20 and a beer around $6. Now a small meal is around $20... More

Combine The Sand Bar's Bistro casual dining experience with its stunning bush location and you've got a recipe for success. The Sand Bar's spacious decks allow glimpses of the Great Sandy Strait and poolside dining offers a taste of the Aussie lifestyle. The Sand Bar's made-to-order pizza and bistro menu hits the spot after a morning in the great outdoors... and best of all it's only a hop, skip and jump to two of the resort's inviting pools and a short stroll to the beach. Picnic in the trees and soak up the birdsong, down a cool drink in the shady deck or keep the kids amused in The Sand Bar's gaming arcade. The Sand Bar is perfect for a quick meal after a day's fun on the water. The Sand Bar is open seasonally, so in off peak and low occupancy times, it may not be operating.
