We have eaten at Sandbar at least 15 times in the past and is one of our favorites when visiting Anguilla. It is under new ownership this year. I am sorry to say we had an underwhelming experience. We arrived at 6:30 and ordered a...bottle of water and drinks. The place wasn’t very busy with about 6 or 7 tables taken. It took about 15 minutes but we finally got our drinks. We orders 4 dishes and asked that they bring 2 and then 2 a little later. It took about 20 minutes to get the first 2 and another 40-45 minutes to get the last 2. Not very prompt. One of the first 2 dishes was served barely warm and wasn’t as good as it should have been. When they brought out next 2 dishes they had one of them wrong and had to go back and remake it. The servers were not very attentive and after waiting as long as we did we just wanted our check and to leave. We will try this place again as anybody can have an off night but my hope is the new owners up their game.More

We always go here to enjoy several tapas. It is enjoyable to taste a few different items. We always start with zucchini carpaccio which is our favorite dish here. We then shared a lettuce wedge. After these we split fish bites and flank steak with...a Chimichurri sauce. For desert we split a cinnamon/sugar Johnny cake with ice cream and sauce. It was really good. Good service and the beachfront location made the meal more enjoyable.More

My wife and I love eating at the Sandbar in Sandy Ground. We ate dinner here with our Carimar friends.😊 We think this restaurant has some of the best calamari, fish bites, desserts, drinks, and iconic island views on Anguilla. Get to Sandy Ground before...sunset-stunning views.More

We can only assume the extremely disappointing experience was a result of the recent ownership change noted in other reviews. We waited nearly 30 minutes between tapas and was overall disappointed. We thought lobster bites (a special) was a great idea since it is local...to the area. Unfortunately, after ordering, we were disappointed to hear a couple next to us ask which of the seafood dishes were fresh/local and the response was none. Well the lack of fresh ingredients was evident in the taste of the food. Two of us could not even eat more than a bite or two of each of the dishes and we left very hungry. They were also out of many dishes. Save your money, the food is pricey and not worth it.More

We had an outstanding meal here - everything was superb - perfectly prepared! Simple and outstanding. The zucchini was so special that my husband - who never eats vegetables - ate most of it! We had the sirloin - perfectly prepared -- and the shrimp...tasted so fresh and so perfectly cooked - maybe the best shrimp we had ever eaten. BUT save room for the Jonny cake desert!More

Visted Sandbar before the owners left back to California — this place is great! Sunset dinner at Sandbar really got me on island mode — delicious food, relaxed beach atmosphere and even enjoyed the music from down the beach at Elvis’ while enjoying our meal....I say start with the Sandbar cocktail, get the Tuna Poke, the zucchini carpaccio, the sautéed Prawns, the Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and their delicious (seemingly double baked) french fries with their aoli sauce. Can’t wait to go back under the new owners. This place is perfect.More

Great location, sit on patio closer to water if possible. Cute bar, nice selection of food on menu. Slow service, all of our food came out separately

You can "create" a multi-dish meal out of many fascinating tasting small plates. The night we were there, there was also nice live music.

one of the best on the island. i know it sounds funny but the zucchini carpaccio is a unique and delicious dish. don't miss that (even if you don't like zucchini). pork sliders were excellent--mostly western style with some spice. fried fish bites tempura also...delicious. owners/chef are very friendly and accommodating. Also, they have elevated the island rum punch with their frozen version--truly outstanding and only $5 during happy hour.More

We enjoy this tapas restaurant. For two people I suggest 3-4 tapas. They have several choices but we like the zucchini carpaccio, fish bites, flank steak with chimichurri, lettuce wedge, and caprese. Do save room for a desert of a Johnny cake with ice cream...and sauce on it. They have music some nights. The staff is helpful and all the food is very good. It is right on the beach so views are nice.More

We have never used taxis on Anguilla - it’s really easy way more economical and more convenient to rent a car- so many beaches to see and so many restaurants to try!
