Amelia at Sandbar made our wedding so easy! We wanted a simple wedding to be able to celebrate with our family and friends. She listened to all our requests and made sure our wedding day was totally stress free. The venue was perfect, food was delicious and all our guests we treated fantastic. We didn't want the party to end :)

Sandbar was an absolutely magical venue for our beach wedding and Michelle was the fairy godmother of this castle who held everything together, took care of the bridal party and the guests. Beautiful venue, welcoming staff and of course Michelle, the heart and soul, thank you!

Sandbar was a great venue for our beach wedding. Amelia was very friendly and helpful with the preparations, relaxed and organised. The venue looked fabulous on the night, and the service was fantastic. A number of guests commented on how helpful and friendly the staff were. The festive and relaxed atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. It was great to have someone at the venue coordinating the night, and still have a unique wedding, We highly recommend Sandbar.

The Sandbar Beach Cafe was a beautiful location to get married. We got a lot of positive feedback from the family. It was convenient as the venue organised also decoration and flowers. I would choose the Sandbar again. Unfortunately the sound system was a let down. A upgrade is necessary. The sound was a let down and made me not happy on the day. Also I wouldn’t choose the flowers from the venue manager. The flowers for the decoration were amazing but the flowers for the guys were poor quality, my flowers were not nicely done and the flowers of the dog fell apart after five minutes. Also the flowers were overpriced. But I guess you are a bit desperate at a wedding so I just paid. Anyhow - 4 out of 4 stars.

Amelia was like our wedding fairy godmother and made everything from booking, to planning, to also providing all flowers, to an absolutely beautiful and smooth-running wedding day so easy, fun and awesome. Highly recommend

Sharon (owner) was amazing, meeting with us prior and remaining flexible all the way until the date, with guests, decorations, DJ, etc. Sharon was a pleasure to work with, it was a smooth, easy experience and the venue was stunning (and I hear the food was great too - the bride was having too much fun to eat!)

What a spectacular venue. We have had so many compliments along the lines of "that is the best wedding venue we have been to in a long time", "I felt like I was am on the set of Revenge that is how perfect it was". Relaxed and beachy with cocktails and finger food - bliss!
