About Samphire Whitstable
Samphire is a Kentish Bistro firmly established within the Whitstable restaurant scene. Our style of food is simple with emphasis on great produce. We are proud to showcase the best seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms, allotments and producers in our regularly changing menus.
Very underwhelmed by the food unfortunately.
Lovely early evening meal with 2 young children. Food amazing and the service couldn't of been better. See you soon!
Very well organised and clean. Sanitiser on each table for customers. Staff as welcoming as ever. Would happily return
service a bit hap hazard - one dish was ordered incorrectly it was exchanged for the correct one but with a delay - noticed another table, service staff had forgotten to order the vegetables and another delay Hake was a small portion for £20 and the peas and courgette under it uninspiring cured trout a little bland as was the duck rillette sticky toffee pudding was fabulous when paying high prices for lunch with an additional 12.5% service charge on top I expected really good service and wonderful food but was disappointed
Fabulous meal and very friendly service. We felt welcome and relaxed as soon as we arrived. Food was superb!
Lovely food and tentative staff sticking to rules
Fantastic breakfast in a beautiful little cafe. The perfect antidote to lockdown madness.
We had to send a main meal back twice because the chicken was under cooked. Not what we would expect for such a pricey restaurant.
Food was fantastic, whipped cod roe was out of this world.
A lovely meal in a pleasant restaurant with attentive staff
Food was beautiful but we felt very uncomfortable that during the covid pandemic none of the staff were wearing PPE or masks. I have not been in any other restaurant or cafe during the pandemic that did not have staff wearing these so was very shocked. I would not come back due to this.
Wonderful food and service thank you!
Despite the issues with Covid, this didn't impinge on our night at all. We had a lovely evening and have absolutely no issue with the deposit taken for the reservation - how are restaurants supposed to survive if selfish diners block tables by failing to turn up?
Really delicious meal
A very quaint spot, lovely friendly atmosphere and great service. Food was good, but extremely overpriced - a modest meal for 2 was £100. The food did not warrant this price tag.
Ok evening. Not great food and cheap but expensive wine. Nice staff...But not trained. London prices but way way off.. If the meal was £30 a head I would say alright. But £55 a head. Nah. You have got to be better than that. Basically you are paying good London prices for ok quality food, service, table and location.
Lovely food. Very pleasant staff who were very careful about maintaining social distancing and other measures. Definitely recommended.
Excellent food & friendly efficient service as always
I love Samphire, even though only having been a few times. Each time the tastes & food are different but always great. Would love if there were a couple more options for vegetarian or vegan. Make sure to book ahead so you won't be disappointed, highly recommend.
Great food and service - we have visited many times.
Lovely evening and meal. Staff were all friendly and professional, food excellent.
First meal out after lock down! Felt like a total luxury. Safe and friendly. Wonderful food. Faultless really.
Great service and good on covid cleaning and distancing. Food great and very tasty.
Excellent food and service next time we’re in Whitstable we’ll come again.
First meal out post CV19 & glad to say Samphire didn't disappoint. Food excellent, service friendly & efficient. Covid precautions obvious, but unobtrusive. Glad to be back!
