We have eaten here a few times now (even though we are not locals). Each time the food was excellent although the service can be ordinary. I will still come back for the food (particularly when attending Disney on Ice nearby).

We went for dinner and the food was delicious with really generous servings. We ordered two different platters (each for two people) plus one side dish of cauliflower and couldn't finish it all between the four of us. Also the wait staff were very accommodating...More

Every time I've dined here the food has been top notch. Service is always quick and for a reasonable price. Hard to choose the best dish but I really enjoyed the Lebanese bruschetta for an entree. You can't go wrong with a platter either. Just...More

Samaras does not sell alcohol, so you can BYO. They are conveniently located next to a liquor store so you can purchase next door and then dine at Samaras!
