A lovely little restaurant in Falmouth. Cozy, friendly staff, superb food and a lovely bottle of Cornish wine. We had the tasting menu and both enjoyed it very much. At £30 a head this was excellent value for money. My favourite courses were the scallops and the sole - although it was very hard to choose a favourite as everything... More

Went to Samphire the other night and had their tasting menu, and it proved to be the right choice. It was a real treat. Each dish was varied and served to showcase David's skills as a chef that can produce food that tastes exquisite. As it is a requirement of the whole table to have the same menu there then... More

In Falmouth on holiday and decided to revisit this restaurant. Without a booking we were welcomed from the moment we entered and felt well looked after until we left. The waitress was able to advise on certain dishes and knew what the changes were to the menu. We both ordered the hake dish for mains and it was truly wonderful.... More

Our dinners in the Samphire were all enjoyed by our party, some of whom thought it the best meal we had eaten during our week in Falmouth. The service was exceptional which added to an enjoyable evening. Definitly recommended.

Food excellent, best mussels I've had! We would have scored it higher had the service hadn't been so slow. We think the problem was that it was a Tuesday night which is usually one of the quieter nights but this this wasn't the case when we visited. This is no complaint against the chef, waiter or a reflection on the... More

Having been a few times previously on our visits to Cornwall, this was our first choice for a more special meal out. Not cheap but worth the money. Food was excellent and service brilliant as always. Always recommend to our friends and will re-visit

Samphire was recommended by relatives who had eaten there the month before and we are so pleased we took their advice. There are two floors and we were led to the basement which was cosy with smart decor. I asked a question about one of the wines on the menu and was given knowledgable advice by the friendly barman/waiter assigned... More

We found this restaurant by chance only just having arrived in Falmouth. Everything was excellent - food, service and pricing. Thoroughly recommended.

This was the most expensive of the restaurants we visited and unfortunately the lowest in our rating. The food was fine and would not disappoint but I just think their are better restaurants to be had. Not a bad call if you are looking for restaurant and the food was good but we had better in Falmouth.
