Great location. ok food. Average coffee. Right on the beach with both inside and outside tables. Counter ordering. Quick service. Eggs on toast ok but coffee bland. Fruit toast excellent. Nice place on a nice day but don't go just for the food.

We love paella cooked at home with fresh produce. Many times in Spain we were disappointed. Yet at home - at the sandbar - we found what might be the worlds best simple paella. Fresh mussels, calamari, prawns, fish, scallops cooked in an individual pan...More

The weekend before Christmas is a pretty telling time for most restaurants, particularly one built on the foreshore thus caters for a whole lot of children. Despite these impediments Sandbar did it brilliantly. With three adults and four somewhat demanding children between 6 to 13....More
