Review: Sandbank – splashing fun, good food !

It was my first time dining outdoor with all 4 kids (baby C’s maiden trip out with the family). I had wanted to try Sandbank after reading about a restaurant with its own pool in the Straits Times. How cool is that…..I imagine myself dining while the kids are having splashing good fun at the pool.

As I wanted to avoid crowd especially with my big brood ( i made reservation for my 4 kids for the first time…sound scary and noisy yah) , so i decided to try to visit it on a weekday evening. Luckily, I was informed that the pool closes at 7pm, so i picked the kids earlier from child care so that they can “play water” for a good hour before dinner.I also found out about the depth of the pools to ensure that my 2 year old is tall enough to play on its own. There are 2 pools of depth 0.5m and 1m respectively and I specifically asked to be placed near the pool so that i can watch over them.

On the day of visit , my 3 older kids were the only ones using the pool. The restaurant allow the patrons to change the kids in their restroom but it is advisable to dry them after coming out from the pool. However, i used the public shower facility situated just next to the restaurant after the water play so that they are clean and dry for dinner. 11750666_10153171869649143_7038152995897345557_n IMG_4282 (2)

 

 

That’s my older kids ordering by the pool.11755875_10153171863844143_5089747272419612739_n 11703213_10153171864319143_7914925646418238916_n

It is a really family friendly restaurant with kids cutlery, kids menu and kid colouring activities. As the kids were hungry from their “swim”, they ate their dinner pretty quickly. I must say besides having a good attraction ie the pool, the food pretty good too. I love my roasted beer chicken which came with my favourite chilli sauce – Sriracha sauce! Pretty decent food and pretty decent prices and portions.Service was attentive too probably because it wasn’t very crowded yet as i was having an early dinner. My hubby mentioned beer prices were relatively cheap and the whole place was not fully air-conditioned as they allow the sea breeze to come in which was nice!11738060_10153171867674143_538178956671691077_n 11248957_10153171867664143_5557542750270343437_n 11264867_10153171867679143_4512254687423012643_n 11694765_10153171867659143_491244863218651798_n 10300111_10153171867689143_3917609701643684959_n

Disclaimer , some food pics taken aren’t full portion as I had to handle 3 older kids n take photo… .I am so glad baby C was largely cooperative so i had a pretty good and relaxing dinner almost by the beach! If my friends ever need a kid friendly venue for recommendation, this will be top of my list!
