Stopped here for a lunch during the quieter October period. Very friendly and attentive staff. Found that the portion sizes, particularly the seafood feast, were generous. Really enjoyed our lunch and now I'm stuffed!

This was an amazing dish to have. Was loaded with a wonderful selection of fish with plump mussels, scallops, squid, and other fishes. A dish to be shared for 2 (easily would have stretched to 3 adults). Wonderful fish choice on the menu and as we were there deciding on our order, the fisherman came in with the fresh fish... More

I recently travelled to Fowey as a trip down memory lane with my mother - as we used to visit often when I was a child. The first day we got there we were hungry after a long journey and stumbled upon Sam's. The decor was a little quirky but the music was very relaxed and set a good atmosphere... More

Dined on a Sunday night...went at 6.30 to avoid the 7 o'clock biz as advised when we tried to book ( no booking). Got a great booth. Friendly service. Tiny bit impersonal? They wouldn't serve lemon sole off the bone, bit disappointing. Why not? My hubby nearly choked when he was a kid and goes for fish off the bone.... More

This restaurant comes highly recommended so my experience probably doesn't reflect the norm. The service we received from our waitress was poor. So poor in fact that we thought it was one of those themed restaurants where the service was intended to be rude. Other waiting staff seemed to be excellent - warm and friendly. But, as they say, you... More

Didn't get to eat here unfortunately...definately will next time, but if you love a good cocktail then Shane upstairs in the bar makes amazing cocktails....he is a real star and extremely friendly and professional.....we basically worked our way through the cocktail list in the week we were in Fowey, and I defy you to drink a more perfect Martini!

Nice place eating seafood. Friendly staff and very good service. If you stay at "rush hour" you have to wait a while.

Really busy Saturday night but staff really helpful, order taken whilst waiting in the bar. Four of us all had different dishes, all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Will visit again, being very picky - could do with a little more space between the tables to give a little more room to move.

Were it not for Pinky Murphy's quirky cafe up the road, this would be the only venue we ever go to in Fowey. Staff are always friendly, service is quick & food is always fresh & well-prepared. If there's a table wait time the cocktails upstairs are superb. Difficult to fault; the only issue you'll have is the hoardes of... More
