“Nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Right on the beach in Samara. Nice menu with lots to pick from. I had the chicken cosada and it was delicous but my husband had the beef cosada and once again, he won the draw on the better dinner. His beef was so tender that we ended up just sharring everything.

“Beside the Police station and Choco's surf school on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Sheriff restaurant is next to Choco's surf school at the lower end of the main street, right on the beach. Great for breakfast and for lunch.

The food is basic, with American junk food and tasty local options like ceviche, and it is inexpensive. The service is efficient and friendly.

It's not fancy but is great for a reasonably priced meal or drinks after surfing at Choco's surf school.

“Great local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Prices are reasonable. Right on the beach . Watch the surfers do their thing as well as teach students to surf. That's a hoot! Breakfast is really good as well.

“Great food in an interesting atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Sheriff Rustic is a nice little beach restaurant located in Samara Beach. It is open every day from 7AM to 5PM. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is very nice and the service is great. They have great fresh fish at very reasonable prices. While not fancy, there is something about the atmosphere which is very relaxing and friendly. Of course, the view of the beach is great. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I recommend it to you and plan to return soon.
