Best restaurant in the island! Always eat here and always enjoy it
Always enjoy eating here. Very consistent, innovative and good value for money.
Delicious, well presented food with great flavours. Good for a night out where you leave feeling more than satisfied.
Really good fine dining experience. You can mix the menus if you want. The oysters were amazing. Service was impeccable, attentive but not in your face. Food quality was excellent and was well presented. Took my wife on our honeymoon and they presented us with some home made chocolates for a desert. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
Service as good as always and staff warm and welcoming. Starters all fine but mains all had issues. Steak had gristle, lobster was small for the price and the monkfish was undercooked close to the bone. Overall a pleasant event but the mains were not up to the usual standard.
Top food and service cannot fault.
Excellent food and courteous friendly and efficient service. Well done!
Our lunch for three, to mark a special occasion, was exquisite. Beautifully cooked and presented, with delicious flavour combinations and a good choice of quality wines by the glass.
I particularly enjoyed the monkfish with chorizo, keta and cappocollo; my companions were equally delighted with their choices of duck and sirloin streak.
If you are looking for amazing food, attentive but unobtrusive service and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere then Samphire should be at the top of your list.
excellent food at sensible prices backed by superb service
The food was good, then service was good. We had the tasting menu and we definitely had our favorite dishes within the menu.
Service and ambience were impeccable at Samphire; we were brilliantly well looked after and the restaurant itself was comfortable and welcoming. The food was very good indeed, and every course of the seven-course taster menu a pleasure - we also had the flight of wines to match. It was interesting to compare and contrast Samphire with Bohemia, which we visited the following evening - Bohemia slightly more edgy and adventurous, but Samphire safely and reliably excellent. A great evening.
Frequent diner here and as usual the food and service were first rate. They just received their star as well, so congrats to the team.
An absolute classy restaurant with impeccable service, interior, food and drinks. Central location and therefore easy to reach.
Great meal, delicious food & wine. Definitely worth a visit when in Jersey
Expensive and lost it’s way. Almost empty and no ambiance even for lunch on a Friday. Staff very friendly and hospitable although slow service. Hi
The staff/hospitality was out of this world!! Would recommend to anyone and everyone who loves good service :)
We attended for the Oysterfest as we were promised as advertised on the website, the following:
Oyster Bar – Every Saturday
Our oyster bar will be open on the front terrace every Saturday for the month between 2pm and 3pm. Watch one of our chefs shuck fresh oysters and select from a range of accompanying sauces. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!
Unfortunately, there was a table set up but nothing happened the duration we were there (from 1.45-just gone 3). It was quiet and other than being served an oyster menu, you would have had no idea there was an “oysterfest” going on. Equally, I returned to Samphire with a different group in the evening, prior to dinner at a nearby establishment, and visited for a cocktail on the top terrace, expecting a resident DJ, but nobody in sight? Felt like I had perhaps got the wrong date for Oysterfest or I was a tad early.
I do love Samphire (or Ormer as it was when I had last visited) as a restaurant itself which is why I have rated food, etc well (the oysters we had WERE EXCELLENT, as was the perfectly chilled glass of Chablis) but the decision to attend on a Saturday was based purely on the reason I wanted to enjoy “Oysterfest” and I think the advertisement made expectations higher than what was delivered in reality.
Another great meal, faultless ! Under the new management the restaurant is now back on track and going from strength to strength.
A very enjoyable evening, the staff were very attentive whilst not being overburdening, food was delicious, recommend the £36 bottle of Rioja!
While the food was excellent, best pasta I have tasted, the service did not meet expectations. We ordered wine and this turned up as a bottle but we ordered it by the glass. We were halfway through our meal before the wint arrived.
Casual dinner for two early septembre weekday : the restaurant is not fully booked and staff is friendly and relaxed
With recent new ownership, the menu is more Classic Jersey type of food than before
I had crab tagliatelle and lobster thermidor and both dishes were close to perfection
Price is correct given the very high standard of food and venue.
Delicious food but service was fairly unfriendly and the atmosphere was flat as a pancake
Probably the best meal I have had in Jersey, although it was a special occasion and I don't normally splash out that much on a meal, but it was truly worth it. It was actually very good value for money. Will be back to try the taster menu at some point. The food and service was excellent. If it's not got a michelin star, it should have! There was a really good mix of price options on the menu too, which means that you can eat there affordably. Really excellent - can't fault it.
Everytime I go there it’s outstanding. My favorite restaurant in Jersey!
Didn’t think it could get any better than Ormer but it was, only thing that could make it better would be a soufflé
Superb quality food and very good relaxed attentive service
Great food excellent service perfect atmosphere finding parking can be a bit of a problem sometimes though but otherwise excellent.
Samphire is dining perfection. Exquisite food and wine, serene ambiance, professional,friendly and attentive service,without the snobby air you sometimes find in top end restaurants. The only downside is we don't live in Jersey to be able to dine there more often.
Sophisticated cuisine but in a very relaxed, bright and contemporary environment with pleasantly attentive staff with none of the obsequiousness that can sadly all too often be a feature of top-end dining establishments!
Only slight criticism - the way the menu was set- out was somewhat confusing and apparently haphazard and did take us a while to get to grips with ( perhaps a lack of sophistication on our part?!!)
Beautiful food, lovely attentive and friendly staff, relaxed but special surroundings, perfect ambience. Only downside no reasonable lower priced wine.
Fabulous family lunch special day.
Amazing! from the first connection with Events and Marketing Manager our booking ran so smoothly. Extremely friendly although professional approach. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant and looking forward to our next event.
I went to Samphire with friends for a special occasion and the whole experience was outstanding. It's a beautiful restaurant and everything we ate and drank was wonderful. The service was exceptional too and we loved the terrace too. Thank you!
With most tasting menus there are generally a couple of stand out dishes. On this occasion it would have been unfair to single out any course, the quality was superb throughout with an excellent selection of paired wines, the two dessert wines in particular. The service was a little patchy initially, but nothing to complain about and probably not helped by members of our party not being ready when the staff were. A thoroughly enjoyable meal.
Great food, elegantly presented with superb service that’s not overly stuffy
Really wanted to try Samphire for our wedding anniversary.
Husbands starter of foie gras was excellent but crab was tasteless.
Both chose lobster Thermidor for main course. This was really dry with an overwhelming flavour of fennel. Not the silky, brandy, mustard, light cheese classic we were expecting at all. So disappointing.
Jersey royals would have been perfect if cooked. They were hard throughout the centres.
Expensive meal which we would not have minded had the food been spot on.
The music was too loud for a nice calming restaurant, it was fairly loud anyway as it was busy and then in the background was some really heavy music! It was actually giving us a headache.
We had our 25th Wedding Anniversary meal at Samphire. Truly stunning evening!!
good service and it’s my birthday I’ve got a birthday cake which was lovely.
