“Small Portions”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Located right at the corner of Poppies Lane and the main beach Road makes it an ideal place to do a bit of people spotting. The downside is it can be a bit noisy. Not much of an atmosphere in the place and it felt that it was more to do with a quick turnover of numbers. Reasonable prices but the portions were very small. I had the salt & pepper squid for a starter and it contained six extremely small batter rings that hardly contained any squid and therefore was a complete waste of time. The garlic bread was overdone and again very small. I was looking forward to the gorgonzola pasta but they did not have any gorgonzola so I settled for a carbonara which was OK. Wouldn't be a place I would head back to in a hurry.

“Nice spot at the start of poppies lane”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Very nice food . Staff were friendly and helpful. One staff member we had a long chat with and really felt at home. Food was very nice. The view was just ok. Looked out at poppies lane and across to a bit of the beach. I would gladly go back and eat here again.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Just come back from Bali, this is the second time i have been to the sand bar, the restaurant has not failed to disappoint. The staff are absolutely amazing and so was the food. My uncle ordered got the brûlée AND a panacotta and he said they were the most amazing deserts he has ever had and even tipped the chef who made them. All in all a great evening.
