The first time we tried this restaurant we were very impressed. There were plenty of veggie options for my friend and she liked her choice. I was less impressed with my tough chicken. The ambience was very soothing but the place seemed to be run...More

Sammy's was recommended by Vegetarian/Vegan friends. I'm of the view if a restaurant can happily cater for Vegans and Veggies, then they really care about food, full stop. This was borne out, by the food they presented on our visit. There's nothing pretentious about this...More

Just had the best meal in a long time. Rib eye steak with roast potatoes,shallots,mushrooms and broccoli. Would highly recommend you try this place. I'm just sorry that I left it so late to try this place as I wouldn't have gone anywhere else

Simply delicious, friendly with a serene ambience. Loved the fact that certain courses became available while you were eating another. I'd dine here every day if I could afford it!

small selective menu. Please try the braised beef tongue in karob and the pork belly. You will not be disappointed. Good wine selection. Good service and a beautiful clean restaurant with good ambiance. If we could, I would eat there every night. Well done to...More

Beautiful atmosphere and location. We had the five-course vegan menu and it was absolutely delightful. Free from artificial meat substitutes and instead based around beautiful vegetable ingredients. The chef was so kind to tell us about the provenance and procedures of each dish. Beautiful presentation...More
