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

Beach Bar Bust

On our last 2 trips to AXA, the Beach Bar was our favorite. Now, under new management and ownership, it is to be avoided. Though the food is still very good, the staff is bored and dispirited (no customers - no tips?) And the ambience is non-existent. It used to have an awesome hip vibe and was... read more

My wife and I were looking for a beach side place to have dinner in Sandy Ground when we came upon the Sandbar. We had a great table near the beach and ordered several different items from the Tapas menu. My wife and I couldn't decide which item was better, the tuna was amazing, mahi mahi was fantastic, pork sliders... More

Alicia and her husband are the very gracious hosts! The ambiance, food and staff exceeded expectations. We ordered at least half the items from the menu and some even twice as it was that good (tuna and pork sliders to be specific). The atmosphere is casual and inviting as were the staff and owners! The only suggestion would be to... More

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!

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
