Summertime Restaurant

The Summertime Restaurant is part of the beautiful 5 star Sunbeach Hotel and Resort. The resort can be found on Kofi Annann Street in the Bakau region of Gambia, West Africa. The hotel is massive, with 180 superior rooms, 4 superior rooms specifically designed for disabled guests and 8 elegant junior suites. The resort is built across 11 single storey, separate buildings, so that it does not impose on the surroundings and this creates a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, truly appropriate to the holiday vibe. All of this is set in a breathtaking 10 acres of tropical garden, making this gorgeous retreat a real tropical paradise. Other facilities that the Sunbeach resort offers include a swimming pool, a separated children's pool and the opportunity to engage in watersports at the hotel. More functional amenities include a laundry service, bureau de change, a souvenir shop and a chemist.

The Sunbeach Hotel houses a grand total of 5 restaurants, including 'The Lobby', where guests can enjoy coffees and drinks while they watch live sports on the television or engage in sports themselves at the billiard table. At 'Le Bar', visitors are entertained daily with a variety of performances. The restaurant is also al-fresco, allowing you to take in the beautiful weather and stunning sunset. 'Fishermen's' is an eatery dedicated entirely to seafood, offering the freshest and all round best seafood and fish in town. 'La Cucina' reveals its Italian inspiration, as it offers popular pasta and pizza dishes in a laidback and relaxed atmosphere.

The Summertime Restaurant, however, offers an entirely different and original approach, as it functions as a day buffet restaurant. You can pop in for a delicious breakfast, lunch or sumptuous dinner buffet if you so choose. Prices per person are normally around 600 Dalasi, which works out at about 13 British pounds, excluding drinks.

The Atlantic coast is the perfect location for this restaurant, it is situated in an unspoilt area on the edge of the inlet of the incredible River Gambia. Here it is quiet and naturally beautiful, while the property itself is recently renovated to the highest standards. Staff are particularly accommodating; they are friendly, approachable and provide a devoted and impeccable service.

The Summertime Restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere, with staff continually on hand to seat guests and take orders. Brightly decorated and incredibly well lit with spotlights covering the ceiling, the restaurant is undoubtedly a delightful way in which to start your day; or an equally good way to end it, if you visit for dinner. The restaurant manages to seat around 30 people at its fullest and, despite fitting so many guests inside, it feels incredibly spacious. Any visiting parties will still have their privacy maintained as the tables are set well apart from each other, you will always feel as if you are eating in private and the double doors and large circular windows leading outside mean that the place is really light and airy.

Chefs cook a variety of dishes in full view of the guests, who are welcome to approach them with enquiries about the food. The buffet arrangement of the Summertime Restaurant means that guests are free to go up to the kitchen and select their own meal from the variety of different foods on offer. Members of staff are attentive and visit your table regularly to keep you well stocked with drinks and to ensure that every guest is enjoying their experience.

One of the great advantages of the Summertime Restaurant at the Sunbeach Hotel and Resort is that, unlike any of the other eateries that the resort has to offer, food is essentially unlimited! The beauty of the establishment's buffet system is that guests pay a set amount and can help themselves to as much food as they want. This sets visitors up incredibly well for a long day exploring the sights and sounds of the local area and also acts as a great way to finish off a long, exhausting day if you have worked up an appetite. In this way, the Summertime Restaurant can be the best value for money around, as the portions are potentially infinite!

The Summertime Restaurant really owes its name to the time of year when it is most popular. Its bright decor incorporates the yellows and reds associated with the sun into an attractive and cheery atmosphere, architecturally, it is designed to catch the sunshine for as much of the day as possible and to fill the room with uplifting light.
