It's a cozy restaurant with a friendly, sophisticated feel (reminded me of restaurants in Melbourne's Brunswick St).

After looking at all dinner options available in Mission Beach we decided to try this place. We were not disappointed, staff were very attentive and efficient, food was tasty, fresh and amazing. We started with the squid and prawn wonton both were very tasty, squid was tender. Main course was pork belly curry and the Queensland salmon with paw paw... More

Yum! My mouth is watering thinking about our meal last night. Fantastic flavours started with the prawn wontons, continued with the pork belly curry (oh my!) and ended with salted caramel ice cream. The staff were friendly, relaxed and efficient and the surroundings perfect.

Mission Beach is a small village in Queensland and when we went for dinner tonight we did not have the highest expectations. Ladies and gentleman, we were in for a big surprise! The Sand Bar is a small restaurant close to the beach...it has the atmosphere of a french/italian beach restaurant with good music and very friendly service. But now... More

Had dinner here, which tasted nice. Recommend the crying tiger beef dish! Unfortunately the place lacks atmosphere... It's quite visibly a former pizza place as there is a wood fired oven in the kitchen, and there is no sign that is currently a Asian/Thai place....

Hadn't been to the Sand Bar in a while so a recent Saturday night visit was certainly overdue. The food here is great! I started with the crispy pork belly served on a lovely fresh Asian salad and followed up with the "special" which was a Thai-style red curry of Spanish Mackerel...delicious. Service was friendly and food arrived promptly (although... More

A nice spot out of the way. Pretty noisy so fortunately we were seated in a little alcove with large awning open to what looked like a walk way. Unfortunately there were people smoking nearby which was very unpleasant. My wine was reasonably priced however we thought that charging an extra $2 for the mixer to go with a $7... More
