Ate here on the first and last night of our stay, first time we ate here the food was AMAZING, my steak was cooked perfectly, just the right amount of caramelised onions and mushrooms on top and a perfectly seasoned and garnished salad along with the best freshly cut home made chips I tasted in lanzarote. My girlfriend has a cheeseburger, which I just HAD to have a bite of, looking at it and smelling it, tasted freshly made to me, no frozen burger there! HEINZ KETCHUP! Impossible to find but this place had it!

So anyway on our last night in lanzarote we decided to go back to see if the steak (probably the best sirloin I've had) was a fluke or not, we ordered exactly the same except this time with onion rings and chicken wings to start, fresh lovely onion rings and perfectly cooked wings served with a BBQ dipping sauce! YUM! Then the steak... PERFECT AGAIN! Not a fluke, if you want a lovely steak or a burger with amazing fresh chips (€9.95 steak, €7.50 burger) then this is your place, also screen football and the soaps from back home, Magners on tap too!

Nice clean place with cool decor. Fabulous food with great views out to sea. We found the staff to be very friendly and a prompt service! What more could one ask?

Sam Maguires advertises its burgers as home-made and it certainly appeared so on our visit here. Staff were very accommodating and didn't make additional charges for our extra requests.

We arrived late in Matagorda and as it was our first time there we did not know the area or which restraunts to visit. The first restaurant that we saw was the Sam MaGuire and being dubs we thought we would give it a try.We were greeted by our very friendly host Dave and seated , the views from this restaurant are amazing even at night watching the liners sail past. We were given our menus and our drinks order was taken very promptly. We both ordered the garlic prawns to start and the burger. Our 4 year old daughters pasta arrived with our starter and the portion size was perfect and tasted beautiful, a vey happy little girl. Our prawns were perfect and then our main course arrived . We were expecting the usual flat burger but how wrong we were all i can say is WOW ,This creation arrived on our plates served with homemade chips and homemade coleslaw, it was the best burger we had ever tasted. The food was excellent everything is homemade . We returned a number of times to the Sam MaGuire during our stay and we were never dissapointed with the food . This restaurant is a must visit for anyone travelling to Maragorda or indeed the surronding area. Every dish is cooked and presented to Michelin star perfection. The Chef Wayne has worked with some of the best and well known chefs in the world and he is a very talented young man. This is a top class restraunt . We are really looking forward to visiting the Sam Maguire again next May .
