Umdloti Beach is one of KwaZulu-Natal’s popular swimming, surfing, tanning and watersports beaches, thanks to its safe conditions and warm waters. This is also the address of the SandBar; where sand, sun and surfing vibes meet good food and warm hospitality to make for an excellent restaurant and cocktail spot.
Locals and tourists to South Africa share their experiences against a stunning backdrop when they pay a visit to SandBar. Of course, good music is always part of the mix, just to ensure that everyone has a great time.
The walls are bedecked with old surfing pictures and paraphernalia to complement the sophisticated ambience and add to its charm. This also celebrates one of the sports for which South Africa is well known and accomplished in terms of international standards.
The starters comprise a wide variety of Tapas-style bites. These include mussels in coconut milk, ginger and green Thai curry paste; prawn skewers; grilled halloumi and mushrooms; stuffed calamari tubes; and a Greek mezze platter. The main courses are made up of a number of fresh seafood dishes, pastas, Mozambican-style chicken, a seafood platter, lamb chops, and beef steaks.
There are also salads, gourmet sandwiches and homemade burgers that rival mama’s. Whole red snapper, queen prawns, sushi, grilled calamari, and a flavoursome chicken and prawn curry are just some of the options for those wanting to sample some of South Africa’s delicious seafood. Food is made with fresh ingredients and a novel approach. This is coupled with warm, efficient service.
In addition to great food, the wine list is comprehensive, showcasing some of South Africa’s delicious produce. The wines range from easy quaffing options to some seriously impressive internationally award-winning vintages. Craft beers and cocktails round off the bar to perfection, as visitors are encouraged to relax and enjoy breath-taking views with delicious refreshments in hand.
