~ The sophisticated brunch spot you need to experience ~
Newly opened on the Simpson Bay strip, across from Kim Sha beach, is a touch of class. Astra offers an array of seafood and steak dishes with vegan options as you dine in the striking open-air setting. Their Sunday brunch special from 10:00am to 4:00pm is slowly becoming a more popular favourite among the local crowd.
To many, brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch, and regularly has some form of alcoholic drink served with it. It is usually served any time before 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The word is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch; but to others, brunch is more than that – it’s an experience. Whether you were out drinking the night before and want something substantial the next day, or you’d like to enjoy your breakfast late and lunch early; one thing is clear, brunch is the place to be on Sundays, and Astra is such a spot.
Astra made its grand debut earlier in the month, showing the island some of what it has to offer. Its dazzling grand opening was met with rave reviews. It is a full, open-air restaurant, complete with a bar space and air-conditioned bathrooms. Aside from brunch Sundays, the restaurant features Martini night on Wednesdays, with $5 martinis. The wine list is extensive and the flavours are Chic Caribbean. The price range depends on the dish you choose, so make sure to ask your waiter about the specials on other days, not just Sunday.
Sunday brunch features $19.99 a la carte menu with unlimited mimosas and Bloody Marys. The Astra brunch doesn’t offer a buffet, since theirs has a more gourmet setting. If you do decide to go, which you should, try the most popular dish – steak & eggs! You should also definitely try the catch of the day, which features fresh, locally-caught fish and lobsters. Open all day, Astra offers its fresh fish fry for lunch and dinner.
Just going out for a drink? Dress up and show up at the elegant bar, which has a large, fine selection of cocktails, drinks, and wine from all over the world!
The Astra team cannot wait to take care of you with its high standards of service, flavour and quality. Whether it is a full-on dinner, delicious tapas, or fancy cocktails, enjoy it all at this chic location. This hotspot was fully refurbished with earthy, natural, modern tones, so you can enjoy intimate dining in a welcoming atmosphere.
All staffers wear masks, everything is sanitised and properly cleaned daily and after each use. Hand sanitisers are available, the entire restaurant is open-air and the tables are spaced for social distancing.
