Welcome to the Beach Blanket Bohemia

We are a Resto Bar

where traditional comforts and  modern styling fuse…

Your hosts and owners Rui Jorge Do Rosario and Alec Grove invite you to a dining experience second to none with the kind of legendary hospitality that will keep you coming back for more. The menu is Mediterranean based, using the freshest and most wholesome ingredients with a hint of the contemporary to excite even the most desiring “foodies” palate. The mantra here is: old meets new in perfect balance and harmony.

The formal dining area for those romantic evenings or business lunches is set off by its sophisticated surroundings: crystal cut chandeliers and a decadent fireplace.

Or if you just wish to soak up the rays on the sun-filled terrace area while watching the world go by, you are encouraged to relax and enjoy yourself. The bar area offers a social lounge where in the evenings you can enjoy the laid-back sounds of a live DJ or live musicians from the comfort of your arm chair.

We serve breakfast, light meals, lunch and dinner, not to forget the delightful desserts and cakes. Who could say no? With a fully comprehensive wine list including a selection of international wines, all is catered for. The exclusively classic cocktail menu offers the all-time favourites made to utter perfection. The service is courteous – all staff are effective and are trained to meet a high standard with an in-depth menu knowledge to ensure a satisfying all-round experience. And for those ever needed functions – whether you want a private or corporate function, large or small – all needs will be tastefully met. Centrally located in the beautiful new Sunninghill Village Centre, Beach Blanket Bohemia is a must for those of you seeking a new take on the traditional dining experience.
