Very underwhelming and more like a salad I can make at home.  Nice restaurant and bar.  Clean and social distancing well managed with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Very quiet on a Monday evening but expected.  There is outdoor terrace seating or indoor with air con and...good music.  Too many staff who appeared bored. As per the new norm, scan your smartphone on the QR code to view the different menus.  English option as well.  Big menu ranging from sushi, sashimi, soups and salads to poke bowls and more.  I had the salmon salad which was something I could make at home.  It tasted nice but was very light on ingredients and not at all filling for a main course salad mainly filled with lettuce!  The dressing had a nice kick.  The ingredients says there is avocado but there was none.  I was expecting a well presented salad with more ingredients.  Portion was small.  Looking at the table next to me, this appeared to apply to other dishes as well.  Wifi is painfully slow.  Staff are pleasant and speak English but the constant hovering was driving me mad rather than leaving you in peace to eat!  Looks nice on paper with the menu and photographs but does not deliver.More

We just enjoyed the most fantastic late lunch and were spoiled by Jose Started w yellowtail Sashimi, Edamame (called spicy soybeans on the menu) and pork and beef goyza. Jose also recommended we try a dish called tuna toro and it was out of this...world. We then had Dragon-rolls and Pankoebi rolls and we were eyeballing each other so we could could the last bite. A couple cups of coffee and some cheesecake and lava cake and we are off to look for a couch. I might add it’s in a cute little neighborhood called Pabellon Caribe. The outdoor patio is classy and cozy. Although not here at night we are told it’s quite a little spot w live music and dancing.More

We came to Samura to get some food and we left with an experience! Gustavo, our server, was so attentive and knowledgeable about all the menu items and gave us many suggestions. The food he recommended was absolutely incredible and we enjoyed all the drinks...he told us to about. Adolfo, the barman, made us such beautiful drinks, that we felt bad drinking his creation! I would highly recommend this restaurant, as we will be back before out trip is over, thank y'all!More
