We met Sam and his wonderful food 9 years ago and since then we're his fans. Every year we go to Majorda to meet him, his family and his lovely food. We really enjoy the silence of the Majorda beach and the taste of Sam's kitchen. Try his famous rice with candies as the side-dish to any of his seafood... More

The service was exceedingly slow and food very average. Unfortunately was one of the very few shack's open for next to Zuri (where we stayed) so by default we ended up eating there quite often.

The best restaurant with excellent food,service, ambience and value for money. Through my observation and speaking to Sam I would like to highlight a few aspects that have exceeded my expectation. Firstly the quite location where the beach is not crowded with shacks you can easily spot SAMs. The colourful sun beds with matching comfy cushions just catches your eye... More

The food is absolutely brilliant, cooked and served to each individuals liking. The service is first class from a very likeable team, they can't do enough for... More

came here with my husband for a quiet romantic evening.the approach road seemed a bit bumpy but just a call to Sam (the owner) dispelled all our worries of going the wrong way. the shack faces the sea and you get the option to choose between tables set at the beach front or closer to the counter. we opted for...

Had brilliant food, the best onion bajis ever. Would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Majorda. The food was so tasty. Wonderful chairs on the beach, with ice cold drinks brought to us as we sun bathed, what more could you want. Gerry, thanks very much for your hospitality, we will be back. Hilary and Paul

I have always loved Sam's Shack, and been going there for the past many years. The quality had deteriorated in the middle but they are back again.The best chicken Vindaloo and Xacuti. Right on the beach so its a very chilled out experience. By evening tables and chairs take the place of Sun beds. This beach is a bit crowded... More
