Went in because they promised awesome fish tacos but sadly we were not impressed with the tacos as we had hoped. Our order was missing whole meal when we took food home. Service wasn’t bad and the upper view was great to see the beach.

Thought this would be a great place to get lunch, great location close to beach. I’m not sure if they were short staffed that day or what, but it was a struggle to get anything from water, to get our order taken, to silverware, to our check. The bartender was responsible for the bar, as well as serving the whole restaurant. There was just no way. There were two guys with “security” on their shirts that were sweeping and cleaning tables, but not helping out in any other way. The taco’s we got were very good, but they did mess up our order and we had to wait to get that fixed. Of course, it was difficult to even get anyone’s attention to notify them of the problem. Overall, our food and drink were fine, but we spent too much time there waiting for even basics like water on a hot day that I would try the many other area options before returning.

The Sandbar is located on Mission Drive not too far from Mission Beach. There is internal seating and an external screened seating area downstairs and a rooftop bar and seating area. The staff were welcoming and very friendly and the best thing here is you do not get hassle about where you should sit. We chose to sit at an external table and ordered some food and drinks. The food and drink arrived in a reasonable time and were both enjoyable. We asked for two white wines and ere surprised when we were presented with the house white wine which came in cans. The wine was very nice in fact too nice and we had several and ended up extremely drunk. Great Night and a Great Bar.
