This place is fantastic. Great food, Great atmosphere and fantastic, fun staff. We have been here three times while visiting Cornwall in the past few years and it keeps getting better. However, be prepared to wait for your table, Sam's gets really busy as its so popular, but it is worth the wait and its nice to have a few drinks before hand. (some times there is no wait at all, just luck of the draw). The food is well cooked and presented, cooked to your liking and very good value for money. There is a Sam's at Polkerris, however they dont do Burgers there but they do pizzas and fish dishes and is also well worth the visit!

Went for a quick lunch. Turned out to be one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. The fries were perfect. Service is great and prices are reasonable.

Enjoyed a relaxing, boozy late lunch with good friends and can thoroughly recommend Sam's where we were made to feel very welcome and given a friendly and unhurried but efficient service.
The ladies shared olives and cheesy garlic bread with chilli dip as a starter and the gents had fresh, delicious calamari and a very tasty fish soup.
Main courses included two Sam burgers which were given a hearty thumbs up by the gents and the fish platter was sensational - all beautifully cooked fresh fish including mussels, sardines, calamari and prawns.
The wine was sensibly priced (so we had an extra bottle).
The toilet was clean and fresh.
Looking forward to going back when we are next in the area.

We visited Sam's in September, during a week long stay in wonderful Fowey. This restaurant came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed in any way. We arrived before the crowds, as suggested, as there are no bookings. I chose a starter of Scallops, and main of mackrel, and my partner chose the sea bass as a main . We were both more than happy with our meal choice, and could not have asked for better,or friendlier staff. For desert we both chose Eden Mess, which was just delicious! I would return there, any time I was in Fowey, and recommend this place to everyone.
