The great menu makes it a hard choice to decide what to choose. In the end we decided on the $19.90 Special Menu (after all we are pensioners). This menu comprised of nice toasted... More

Great little Restaurant on Paradise Point Esplanade. They do a lovely lunch special for less than $20 inc glass of wine. Highly recommend.

Loved our dinner here, food very good and the service is excellent. Great menu, lots of choice and the dinner menu deals are excellent value with bread and dips, drink and main for $20. I had the seafood ravioli which was excellent. No problem for gluten free meals and very friendly, excellent staff. Loved it 👍

My first experience at Sandbar was appalling, however I always believe in second chances. Upon my second visit everything was perfect. I've returned many times ever since.

Stumbled upon this place when out for lunch with my mum and daughter during the school holidays. The $20 lunch deal caught our eye. The choice was excellent and the food amazing. Really tasty and well presented. I particularly liked that they only changed 25 cents extra for gluten free bread, as opposed to $3 at a cafe down the... More
