I sort of don't want to write this review as I'd love to be sure of a table each time I visited and I can imagine it fills up fast. Beautiful spot, right on the beach. Car park 200 yards away. Located on a tiny hamlet with less than a dozen buildings at the end of a lane, its the perfect spot. Seafood makes up a large portion of the menu along with pizzas. Took grandparents in their 80's, my parents and I and all found dishes we loved.

I dined here with my wife and was thoroughly impressed with all of the food. The scallops with black pudding is the best scallop starter I have ever had and the Thai mussels are something out of this world.

Great friendly service and reasonable prices for the quality.

To top it off the great beach side location and relaxed atmosphere add to the experience.

Would highly recommend.

Sam's on the Beach, is a little gem well worth visiting. just outside Fowey, down the coast to the small village Polkerris. On the beach a few meters from the sea, you will find this odd restaurant with exelent food and service. Try their Thai mussels still, very good. Belly pork with crispy skin is another delicacy. There is much that draws on their menu. They also have children's menu. Reservations are recommended.
Do not confuse with the pub next door to Sam

Sam's Pizza's come fresh from the wood-fired oven and are large and appetising. The seafood menu doesn't disappoint and the setting is unique. Shame about the walk from the car park , but Polkerris is tiny.
