As good as any meal we have ever had in 15 years visiting Goa - black pomfret fish half Goan spice half orange/ginger spice -but at a price, a decent size fish but it's £20 came as a bit of a shock. Staff were wonderful with a very good ambience.

Sam's is one of my most favourite beach shack. Food is good, seafood is awesome, they have an arrangement where a third party serves hookah, service is better than at most of the shacks. A pleasant experience.

Ate here 3 times whilst in Goa. Staff can't do enough for you. Best place to watch the sunset with a a large Kingfisher beer (90 rupees). Real fun place with great food. Especially enjoyed the jumbo prawns in Goan sauce and the nanns. Recommended to us by Goa regulars who said it was the best food on the beach.

A great little restaurant on the beach with lovely people working there, a typically chilled out vibe and great food. They also have sun loungers for the day and drinks are very reasonably priced. Sam even gave us a lift back to our hotel after dinner and drinks one night, free of charge of course. Now that is service!

We loved Sams. With a pint of cold beer for a £1 and excellent food we sat with our feet in the sand enjoying every moment. The staff were excellent and worked hard to give that special feeling that they were very glad you were there and tried to make sure all was good for you. We had large fish... More

Just about our favourite beach shack. The food and drink are excellent and always great value but the staff and the service are second to none.

Of all the shacks in Majorda Sam's shack is my favorite. The owner is a good chap and the staff is great. The food might be a little high but it is worth it. Overall you will enjoy your visit.

We Purchase a bottle of bear and a ICE CANDY. He Claim Rs.60 against THE ICE CANDY OF Rs.20. Once asked about triple price, He we do not make BILLS LESS THEN 500 or Rs.1000. Your bill is already too small.....so it is nothing
