Can’t get enough sun, sand and sea? Then you’ll want to check out this 560-sq m eatery at Parkland Green, East Coast Park’s latest lifestyle development. The tagline is “Eat, Drink, Plunge” — it offers two plunge pools for diners’ use. Since public toilets with showers are right next door, you needn’t fret about where to clean your peewees up after their dip.

Sandbank-Boy

       Whether you sit inside or dine al fresco, you can be sure of a welcome breeze and relaxing views, since the front of the restaurant faces the beach. The extensive menu consists of bar bites, pastas, pizza and mains. We started with super-crisp calamari with Cajun aioli, $15, and a refreshing fruit mesclun salad, $15 — a great way to beat the heat.

Sandbank-Pasta

       We also enjoyed the heartier dishes like the chef-recommended BBQ baby back ribs, $26, while my burger-loving husband gave the thumbs up to the SandBank beef burger, $23. If you have a craving for carbs, check out the pastas and pizzas — the SandBank Hawaiian Pizza, $25, is delish, though a tad spicy, while the fungi pasta, $15, is just the ticket for kiddos who love mushrooms.

Though we were urged to try the chocolatey desserts, the New York Cheese Cake, $13.50, made a great ending to our fairly heavy meal. Best of all, we were won over by the nett prices (no service charge!), plus, the unlimited servings of ice-cold water quenched our thirst perfectly!

Sandbank-Colouring

Tot-O-Meter: Settling the kids in this spacious restaurant is easy — the service staff readily whipped out colouring materials, so we could peruse the menu in peace. Though simple, the children’s menu — fare such as fish and chips, pasta and mac and cheese — should please junior. Priced from $8.90, every set comes with fries, nuggets and fruit. Once their little tummies are filled, your munchkins are bound to make a beeline for the plunge pools. You can easily keep an eye on them at the pool-side seats while sipping your cappuccino, $6.50, or a refreshing homemade lemonade, $6. Bliss! MT
