Went to Sam's tonight. We were warmly welcomed and although we had to wait an hour for a table, we were comfortably seated in the upstairs lounge while we waited. I had locally caught lobster which was really good. We also had mussels and a half pound burger both of which were delicious. The manager told my son he could... More

My wife and I turned up on the sunday evening of the August bank holiday weekend, on a rainy night when it felt like half the UK were in Cornwall. You can't book, so we weren't turned away, but that turned out to be a mixed blessing. I loved the place and can see why on a good night it's... More

We came on Fowey Regatta day with Red Arrow display on schedule, so they were understandable rushed off their feet. Welcomed us nicely and explained that there would be about half an hour wait that turned out to be 20 minutes only. It was difficult for the owner to maintain good order as people would come in and try to... More

Having waited 90 minutes for our table (promised it would be 60 minutes) we were very disappointed with the food and the service. I don't mind this type of restaurant - no bookings and chic/run down surroundings - but the food needs to be good. My sardines were small and served with a buttered roll (very odd). My wife had...

Sam's in Fowey Review I had lunch at this restaurant with my wife, two small children, and my father on 10th August. To Sam's credit, we were given a lovely welcome, and care was given to see our party of 5 were seated and comfortable. When a larger table became available for example, we were offered it. General welcome was... More

Whenever we head to Cornwall, Sam's is a must! Unpretentious, no bookings taken, good atmosphere, staff are pleasant and on the ball, food worth waiting for - just sad that this time we couldn't manage a dessert!

Went to Sam's for lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had read various positive reviews but from the outside it does come across slightly unassuming (a little bit like a diner) but once indoors, the staff were very accommodating and friendly, and the food was top notch. We had moules mariniere, red mullet tempura and a very well... More
