Restaurant & Bar


sangilo_ 010-minThe Beachside Bar was lovingly handmade by the team here at Sangilo. Our bar is always stocked with cold beers, sodas and bottled water as well as wines and plenty of spirits! You can sit on one of our deck chairs looking out over the lake, or relax in a hammock with a drink in your hand.

Our bar is also full of wonderfully hand carved woodwork from our own, homemade bar stools, to the tables and chairs you’ll sit on, and the fantastic, intricately designed bar itself! Here at Sangilo Sanctuary we know that it’s the personal touches that count

The bar is the best place to sit and unwind with a drink whilst the sun sets, bathing the entire lake in a million shades of orange. It’s also a great place to meet fellow holidaymakers and travellers or simply a place to sit and chat amongst yourselves at the end of the day!


Whether you’re eating breakfast, lunch or dinner, our top quality beachside restaurant is guaranteed to impress! We’re incredibly proud of our wonderful food, all of which is homemade here on site by our team. We only ever use locally sourced ingredients along with fruits, vegetables and herbs that we have grown here in our own garden. We even make our own bread, and there’s nothing better than freshly baked bread still warm from the over!


Breakfast lovers can enjoy, among other things, our scrumptious homemade pancakes with syrup or honey; our full English breakfast and our very own bake beans that have been lovingly made by our staff. At lunch you can try a range of home made delights from sandwiches and soups to samosas, spring rolls and much more! And if you want to enjoy a candle lit dinner, looking out over Lake Malawi, then you can sample our amazing dinner menu. From fresh fish right out of the lake, to incredible pizzas pasta dishes and plenty more. We’re sure you’ll love what we have to offer!

If you are a lover of freshly cooked food and locally sourced ingredients then Sangilo Sanctuary really is the place for you. We’ve had guests come back again and again thanks to our restaurant. Not only is the food fantastic, but our open air kitchen means you can have a chat with our chefs, allowing you to adjust dishes to your liking, or taking out ingredients that perhaps you don’t like or are allergic too.
