We were a group of about 20 people. Admittedly, we weren't hard to manage as we had lots of conversation and didn't worry too much about the length of time to feed us all. But the meals ( a mixture of various steaks, tuna and fish and chips) were all commented on positively by people. The service was pleasant and... More

Randomly chose this restaurant as the Arts centre cafe was fully booked before our show. What a wonderfully unexpected delight it was to discover this lovely little place. One of my most memorable vegetarian meals, and my dinner partner loved the prawn and chicken dumplings. The waiter was efficient, attentive and his attention to detail topped off our great experience.... More

Had a quick meal at samphire bites last night. Heirloom tomato entree was lovely however the vinegar was too sharp and left a strong tang on my palate throughout the rest of the meal and until I brushed my teeth that night. Too strong. I had the tuna main and it was amazing, so fresh and delicate I give that... More

We had 14 in our group and had 2 of the entres and 5 of the mains. Toby and the team were brilliant and kept us entertained and well fed. The maple pork belly is definitely a winner.

My partner and I are from Melbourne and tried Samphire Bites as recommended to her from a local cafe. After leaving we both felt amazed and sad since our flight was the following morning and couldn't return the next night. Sharing is defiantly caring and can say that you will get value for money for the contemporary tapas served. The... More

On arrival we were greeted warmly and sat at an outside table enjoying the comings and goings of Chevron Island.When we were ready to eat we took the inside option which has a lovely intimate atmosphere.

I went here in January for a girls night, my friend had been here previously but this was my first time! As soon as I walked in I knew it was going to be a good experience. When we arrived all the outside tables were taken so we sat at the counter. Whilst waiting for our other friend to arrive... More

The most amazing valentines day degustation and best restaurant we've been to in ages. Fantastic experience sitting at the Long Island where all the food prep is done. Talked to the chef all night, so hospitable and interesting tips shared about food. Front of house people also incredible service with interesting stories to share. 10 out of 10, would encourage...
