My husband and I booked a table for my birthday and we had such a great evening. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived and were greeted by a lovely young waitress who later admitted it was only her second shift - what she only just lacked in in-depth knowledge of her new work place was more than made...

Three of us visited this modest (from the outside) establishment, after a day of sailing. We were hungry, tired and eager to have a good culinary experience. I have eaten in many similar bare wood floored restaurants, where quiche is king, dogs are welcome and the window painted. My expectation was for something simple. I was so outside of that!... More

Had best cream tea I have ever had. I come from Devon so to say this is not being true to my home but it was really lovely and very well presented. My friend had onion soup which he enjoyed too, my little dog Molly had a sausage which she loved!

Had our first dinner at Samphire with friends in the week and I have to say it was a very good experience. Having walked past the restaurant hundreds of times in the past years but never having dined our friends booked us a table for long overdue catch up. For two vegetarians and one gluten free diner the options were... More

We are lucky enough to live in Cornwall, and eat out often. This was our first visit to Samphire and we opted for starters and mains from the prix fixe menu. Maybe this was a mistake? Our meals were pleasant but really nothing to shout about. The service was - interesting... the waitress was good enough to offer us a... More

Very late posting this review as it was last summer that we visited Samphire. But I wanted to let everyone know what a fantastic restaurant this is - the service was great and the food was amazing. Will be definitely returning this year when we are down in Cornwall.

Booked a table for Valentine's evening and was not disappointed. The quality and presentation of the food was outstanding with great service in a busy but relaxed environment. Gluten free was no problem with every effort made to adjust the dishes without losing any of the quality. We'll be back.

We don't eat out very often as I have a severe garlic allergy and am nearly always ill. We booked a table for the Valentine's Day special menu, and what a joy.Nothing was too much trouble, from our table position, garlic free food (total), and friendly but professional service. The evening was busy, but no one seemed to have to... More
