Description: Sandbar is situated on the beach in Sandy Ground, one of the most charming fishing villages in the Caribbean and the "sea and sand" theme of the bar envelopes you as you enter. Lots of natural light, unobstructed views of Road Bay with its myriad boats at anchor - coupled with an abundance of trade breezes make this a cool and comfortable spot to enjoy drinks, or dinner. Dining and seating is available inside and also outside on a terrace perfect for watching the sun go down

We happened upon this restaurant while walking down the beach looking for a place to eat dinner. There were 12 adults in our group, and the staff at SandBar could not have been more accommodating. The service was excellent and the tapas were all delicious. I would definitely return!

The service is so good - hands on owner ensuring everyone is content, a staff that knows the menu & can make recommendations - is professional & very friendly! Tapas - delicious!

We ended up at SandBar by accident, kind of. We had reservations at a much fancier place on the island and, because we were too lazy to get dressed up, my wife and I canceled those reservations last-minute. We were left without a place to dine for dinner, and the owner of the B&B we stayed at suggested SandBar. We... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try Sandbar after meeting Darren and tasting a sample of what was to come. We enjoyed it so much that we ended up there three times in a week! When you add it the tasty signature drinks, your tab does tend to add up, however the quality of the food and service certainly warrants... More

Its a lovely clear evening in Anguilla, and we are heading to dine at SandBar with our friends Sanja and Lionel. The food will as always be fantastic, and the hostess, chef and staff superb. Will follow after yet another great dinner and let you know how great it was.

Once again, this restaurant delivers. Great atmosphere, outstanding drinks and fantastic dishes. Having just returned, this restaurant is getting more and more popular each visit. It is best to make reservations. With many fantastic dining options on the island, you certainly want to add this to your list if you haven't already. Be sure to order the Poki dish, it... More

The small plates concept works perfectly for groups, and Sandbar further accentuates the concept with plenty of delicious options, inventive cocktails, friendly service and a great beach front location in Anguilla's nightlife hub, Sandy Ground. Our recent visit was our second since new owners Darren and Alicia took over this popular casual dining spot. Everyone on the staff was extremely... More

Thought we would try it as it has had good reviews. We arrived without a reservation and were told all the outside tables were taken. OK! They were empty but we thought most likely all reserved. We waited for some time and there was confusion over whether we had been given menus or not. Finally ordered. The food was quite... More

I have been to the Sandbar over the years. Loved it and then hated it. Thought we'd go back with the new owners and check it out. We went last night on New Year's Eve and it was fabulous. My thoughts: Restaurant Setting: Gorgeous. Beach front. We didn't get eaten by mosquitos. We sat outside a at a corner table... More

Expectations were very high after reading reviews . But was disappointed with food that I had. Service was slow and ribs overpowered with orange flavor. Chicken satay didn't taste right. Pork was too spicy. On positive - amazing fries and the skirt steak was one of the best ever had. If fish is not your thing, limited choices
