Family night fish and chips

Yet again great fish and chips enjoyed by all family - this is becoming a tradition for take-away on Esplanade for sunset

In the heart of Bullock Beach this is not a quiet little cafe. But great service and delicious food and coffee gives it a deserved high rating.

We had dinner the while staying at the Rumba and had the best fish and chips for dinner. The fish was cooked to perfection, served hot and the chips were crisp and well cooked. The staff were friendly and attentive and the overall experience was great. It is a great place for lunch or dinner for families with young children... More

It's been a while and there have been some menu changes since our last visit but still great food, friendly staff and great location. Had lunch with friends - their first time at Sandbar and they loved it.

We had a delicious breakfast and the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. My partner wanted something different to what was on the menu and they were absolutely lovely about it. The food was absolutely delicious. This is not your run of the mill cafe, this is more high end and you can tell the food was high quality. The... More
