Great restaurant, food is fantastic. A tiny bit overpriced but good food and good service. I had the fajitas and chocolate fudge cake for dessert! The cocktails are also very nice but also overpriced too. We spent 50 euros on our first night here for two mains, a starter, two cocktails and two soft drinks.

We all had the burgers. If you like big portions, yet amazing quality it is definitely a place to visit. Great view of the beach also. :)

The food was gorgeous and there was so much of it. This is the only place we visited twice.. the first time we had to wait 20 minutes for a table, but they had a designated waiting area, they brought you drinks and it was well worth the wait. My husband had a mixed grill, which was 21 euros and... More

We have been to Fat Sam's 3 times now on 2 separate trips to Santa Ponsa. Every time it has been brilliant, we have always been seated quickly, enjoyed attentive service & brilliant food. The value for money is outstanding, you can get a steak & ribs for the equivalent of £15! And the steaks are excellent, always tender, better... More

Certainly was an experience and the place is like walking into a US diner. Staff friendly and helpful, food good value &... More
