“Yummy yummy indeed!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

If you are ever in Santa Ponsa be sure to pay Sam a visit. It is an all Americano experience with portion sizes to match. Our group had the Brisket burger, the chicken platter and the chicken nuggets, each one filling and delicious with not a freezer food ingredient to be seen - only fresh and hot food here. It is more expensive than most in Santa Ponsa (dishes 12 - 15 euros) but you get the quality you pay for. My portion was so big I even had to take some of the chicken away with me.
Don't be surprised to see a queue or have to wait longer than usual for your food but the wait will be worth it.
Thanks Sam!

Giant portion sizes so prepare to leave a little bloated! The food is so tasty you will need to visit more than once to sample different dishes. Many thanks to Charlie and staff for another fabulous evening, with great views over the beach and a relaxed atmosphere :-)

“Fat Sam's - worth the wait!!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Excellent food with huge portions and friendly staff. Great value for money. There was queues to wait to get into the restaurant every evening, although we found the waiting wasn't as long as we had to wait previous years. Definitely worth the wait and you would need to be really hungry as the portions are HUGE. You may need a long stroll along the beach front afterwards. - Never room for desert after the meal. If you have leftovers, they offer for you to take it home. Always very busy. They do a mean white sangria there too - Cant wait to go back
