We ate at SAMs twice in 2012. We took our children on both occasions and received excellent service. Everyone is exceptionally friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We are pleased to say that the menu hasn't changed a lot in ten years, or indeed the prices which are very reasonable. We had bouillabaisse on one occasion and seafood platter on another. Both accompanied with fresh bread, we topped up our orders with fries which meant our children could share the fish with us and try new thing flavours and textures without it costing a fortune or food being wasted. What is really best is the relaxed atmosphere, you can chill out, not worry too much about children being fidgety or noisy and just have a nice healthy enjoyable fantastic food experience without any pomp or formality but still receive the service and quality you would expect from a top restaurant. Our fav place to eat in Cornwall!

Been to SAMs a number of times with family and friends. Last visited on New Years Day with my family and we all had a wonderful meal. We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome and told we would have to wait about 30 minutes for a table which was fine. We had a drink and ordered our lunch and within 20 mins we had a table and our food came shortly after. I had the scallops which were cooked superbly, and a very large portion of Moules which were also terrific. The kids had the homemade burgers which I have tried before and really enjoyed. The staff are really friendly and chatty, the music is brilliant, and it is no wonder this place is always busy! would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Fowey.

I am a sucker for old buildings, so here is one with great food and a good view. Great seafood, but the wood baked pizza's are to die for. We will be back.

Sam's is a fun, funky restaurant which serves great food. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is different to the boring norm and is very tasty. Being a vegetarian I am often resigned to a cheese and onion tart, a pasta dish I could easily make myself, or a mushroom risotto. At Sam's some fantastic, healthy, very tasty veg meals are offered. We love going here and will continue to do so.

Visited mid afternoon whilst the restaurant was busy and we were immediately welcomed and served.
Great Cappucino, wonderful and fresh seafood, the seafood platter for two was really great. Large portions and served with a Very fresh salad and crusty bread, bliss.

We would thoroughly recommend this place and do go in, even if it is busy. A real treat!
