Samphire Restaurant

The character of our cuisine follows the ancestral technique of using firewood, fire, charcoal and the scented trace of the smoke, combined with the world-class ingredients provided by the land and sea around us in a gentle process of minimal intervention.

"What an amazing dining experience! We walked in not expecting too much but walked out very contented. A complete feast! Every course was perfectly done. Seafood dishes were very fresh and full of flavors. Love the charcoal grilled marron and kingfish wing. Restaurant is situated in a beautiful spot overlooking the bay. We enjoyed our dinner while watching the moon rising. Dhea and Nicholas were fantastic host. The wife and husband team certainly welcomed us very warmly. So does their dog Lloyd, we had so much fun with him! Having been to the island a few times, I would say this is the best restaurant on the island and not to be missed!"
