Thank you very much for a great dinner at Sandbar. Having a friend over from Bali as well as 2 kids with me, I decided to take them to Sandbar with this amazing firsttable offer. We had a fantastic time, the food was amazing, the atmosphere was great near the beach and the service was outstanding, which I have not expected there being right in Sufers Paradise with 2 little kids. As a local I usually avoid places like this, but I will definitely be back. Thanks again.

Last time we went we had the mussels that were in an amzing Thai sort of sauce with great lemon grass, ginger, chili and tomato flavours.
We went back just to have the mussels again which were completely different. They were just in a tomato and chili sauce with basil on top. Thery were over cooked and so had pretty much all fallen out of their shells and were tiny.
Service was great but we were a bit disappointed that we didnt get the same dish.

Amazing food and excellent customer service had a great night out. The only thing that I could say is the lighting. We had to use our phone torch to read the menu.. But the food and service was amazing. 5*

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???

- dined at Sandbar on

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 & drinks were delicious! We had a lovely time there and we tempted to go back for breakfast & lunch the next day!
Very accommodating, we got a table right out the front with great view & sounds of the buzzing coast! Can’t wait to go back

Omg we had such a fabulous dinner last night in the sandbar. Salmon with crispy skin was delish and the steak was amazing. Oh and so too was their garlic bread loaf. Top marks team. We will be back.

Great venue, lovely staff and yummy food! Would definitely head back there for another meal.

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!
