Amazing food! Really tasty and well presented. Quite outstanding cuisine. Very friendly staff and a warm relaxed atmosphere. I went on locals night and I think this meant the prices were reduced too. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

If you're in East Wittering, make sure you visit Samphire for the the best Fresh Fish Restaurant in the area. Fresh, tasty and reasonable price.

Been meaning to try samphire for some time and it certainly exceeded my expectations. The decor was cute and quirky with a nice rustic relaxed feel. I had the mussels to start which I think we're the best I've ever had! My boyfriend had the duck which was also lovely! Both generous and tasty! I had the monkfish to follow... More

We nearly missed this little gem! Glad we didn't though. We dined from the set menu which was reasonably priced. Freshly pan fried seabass with crab sauce, samphire, fennel and new potatoes - delicious. Desserts went down a treat too. No wonder they're in The Good Food Guide. Staff were friendly and helpful too.

Seeing this little place had good reviews we went for lunch and while initially looking for light bites once we read the menu we decided to indulge. The staff were amazingly friendly and chatty, they knew the dishes well and the chef came out to ask a few extra questions of how we might like the food. Ham hock main... More

Booked in advance for a party of eight. We had a table by the front window but it was on the tight side to sit comfortably. Starters were very good with a mixture of dishes from the menu. Unfortunately the waitress knocked a bottle of red wine over and it meant one guest sitting with a damp top. Accidents happen... More

This is a tiny, romantic little restaurant where the food is excellent. We like to go here for lunch or sometimes for dinner, which can be expensive but worth every penny.

Excellent food! I have been twice this year and would highly recommend this small restaurant. The locals night serves up smaller portions as the price is lower. They say £15 for three courses in the email but charge £16 when you get there. Any other day the portions are larger like the menu. There is always a good choice of... More

Took a while to find the restaurant as it’s fairly inconspicuous and looks like it is just part of the adjacent grill bar and the sign was covered by a car. But once we had it was well worth the effort. Mussels, Fish stew and the children’s dishes were all extremely well cooked and presented. The staff were incredibly helpful... More
