A great little restaurant that is oozing with atmosphere. Food and service are really good and a crooner on the grand piano only adds to the ambiance!

We've been here twice and enjoy it. Good food and a great atmosphere. The piano player was terrific (although the singer was the least enthusiastic we've ever seen!). All on all very good value and great fun - the sole was particularly good.

Bob Cunard, the proprietor of Cunard’s Sand Bar, is a living ‘old school legend’ here in the desert. He’s owned multiple restaurants and bars, was a top amateur golfer in his younger years and has lived a very interesting life. I believe that Bobby knows more people in the desert than just about anyone else I can think of.

A very nondiscript place from the outside, but really nice inside. We sat in the bar area, where the piano was, and loved it. It is not your typical bar area, but more a resaurtant feel. The food was very good and the serving help terrific. The music with Johnny was an extra plus.

We recently took friends there to dinner, and once again it did not disappoint. The piano tinkling away, the player singing something I may or may not remember. Who cares!

Whodathunk....devilled eggs!!!???? They are great, just like Auntie so and so used to make!
My wife is not a fish eater, but she had the sole - fried with a panko crust, along with french fries - wow, she loves fish and chips, but this one was on a smear of yummy lemon butter. I had the fish as well, but just grilled.

Of course in the US we can take our own wine we enjoyed this with a wonderful 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape - I know, red wine and fish, but again - who cares. It was fun, and our server was brilliant. Can't wait to go back because unusually, we did not have ONE complaint.

If you are expecting patronizing faux fine dining....go somewhere else. This is real!
