Recently I visited the sandbar and was pleasantly surprised by the decor and set up, but was seriously let down by the menu and prices. I had looked online to see what food they served and thought I'd be enjoying a nice burger while my...family had fish dishes (as I do not eat fish). We arrived and only after we had ordered drinks were we told that there was a new menu with only 3 dishes, one being a Shawarma. Thinking that would be an ok meal for myself, I ordered it and due to the price, expected a meal. What arrived was 1 single small shawarma that barely had any meat in and no side or anything, for R85. Then my families dishes arrived (a mix of calamari and hake) and for the 3 of them they only provided 1 small portion of chips (which at any other restaurant would be a serving size for 1 person), stating that it was for them to share. We complained about the chips so they brought us more. Overall, being my first time at the sandbar after 9 years of holidaying in Kenton, I was seriously let down by the menu and prices. The venue is epic and the staff were lovely, but that was all over shadowed by the seriously overpriced and reduced menu.More

First time on the river but we’d heard of the place for years. Had the hake, which was fine, but I coveted the next table’s shrimp when I saw how much the people were enjoying them. We will come again.

Good honest food, well cooked, and great value for money. The prawns come highly recommended as does the fish and chips. Relaxing way to spend lunch in the sunshine!

It’s always a pleasure having a few drinks and a decent meal while floating on the scenic Bushmans River and enjoying the bird life and watching the boats go by. The food has always been decent, good portions. Service was a pleasure! Will always return.

This has always been a favorite for seafood. Used to be a little rough around the edges but has recently been refurbished and now is a great spot with a bit more class! Try the seafood platter for two which is great value for money.
