We went for dinner early on a Wednesday night.
There were not many diners so service was good.
My husband and I shared a bowl of mussels for entree.
WOW, soooooo yummy.
I then had a chicken schnitzel which was nice and juicy and my husband had the crab pasta which only had 2 bits of crab in it. Couldnt even taste it si I would definitely not recommend that dish.
But the mussels.....definitely.
Next time we go we will be ordering mussels only and a garlic bread to mop up all the sauce.
Over all, our service was good and as you can tell, we loved the mussels.
There is no view at night time of course. Way may need to check that out for lunch one day.

The buttermilk fried chicken was amazing!! Really enjoyed it. Service not too bad. I've noticed at several first table places they don't ask if you want dessert? Nice outlook.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Sandbar!
Beautifully fresh and tasty! The curried coconut prawns plump and tasty, our Poke bowls delicious and the steak, tender and juicy! And what a brilliant position- on the beach at Surfers Paradise! What more could you ask???

Delicious food with a awesome atmosphere. The service was pure quality , our waiter recalled our whole table order correctly off the top of her head without a notepad. Beachfront view while dining is beautiful. Had an amazing time , and the prices for their food portions are super reasonable .

The food was fresh and excellent, with sufficient variety. We were served promptly and in a very friendly manner. The atmosphere was casual and welcoming. Overall the restaurant was affordable and well catered for both vegetarians and meat/ fish eaters. We would definitely go back when in town. The First Table system allowed us to try a restaurant it is unlikely we would otherwise have chosen.

Our Anniversary dinner was at Sandbar. This beautiful, friendly, easy stroll to restaurant had us licking our lips before we were even served dinner. We had pre looked at menu and were anticipating our taste buds and appetite would soon be having what we call a "food orgasm" Well I must say Sandbar you did not disappoint. I had Teriyaki Salmon this delightful, tropical dish had me tantalised with every mouthful, see why we call it Food orgasm? My husband chose chicken and prawn mignon, it came in a lovely creamy sauce with bacon wrapped on the outside and prawn to dress. The plate was almost licked clean. Will we be back to sandbar, hell yes, will we continue using first table? you'd be a nut not to. Thank you

Customer service fantastic, arranged a high chair for us which was lovely. Beautiful Moscato Rosa and great selection of other drinks. I ordered the prawn dish, it had all great elements but was too sweet for me. Lovely location, pity about the weather!

The food was amazing, service was good! My little ones were a little cold outside so the staff kindly relocated us inside, but the inside was so dark (very dim lighting), that we had to use our phones to see what we were eating. But that's a minor detail. The food and service was still great and the milkshakes were delicious. We would eat there again!!

Arrived a lot earlier than we anticipated after walking down from Broadbeach and was quite cold so decided to see if the Sandbar would take us early. Happy friendly start welcomed us in and being way early was no problem. Salmon was divine.
