I went to the Sandbar for a coffee and snack. On entering the cafe, I could hear the waitstaff grouped around the counter, particularly young women waitstaff, making jokes and adverse personal comments about the customers. This included referring to the customers as 'fat chicks'...More

Perfect place to pop in for a drink, meal or coffee - lovely staff, food and amazing setting, you can spend a few hours or the day on the beach then pop in for a drink or something to eat

Great place for a family gathering! We have enjoyed many breakfasts, brunches and lunches here. The view out to the bay is spectacular in all weather. Delicious eggs and great coffees! Try the duck risotto or calamari salad for lunch.

Very attentive and friendly staff, the food is nice but limited choices for vegans (true of most places though). The coffees are rich and strong 👌 and of course the location is brilliant.

Our group of 12 enjoyed a great bunch at the Sandbar. Although the cafe appeared 80% full, our meals were served within 10-15 minutes, which surprised us. The meals were reasonably priced and good value for money. For those visiting with elderly or immobile family/friends,...More
