Food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly. We will return to try other menu items. They use good quality products like real butter. Good coffee too.

She should not be in the hospitality business. When someone has an issue, any other restaurant will offer some kind of apology and try to find a solution to the problem. And most will even take care of the bill. This woman was more concerned...More

Every time I am in Tampa I make it a goal to stop in Samaria Cafe. I've had both lunch and dinner here, and both were fantastic. The owner, a wonderful gentleman from Greece, makes it a point to stop and talk with his customers....More

Stopped in since we were in the area. The servers were something out of a 70's tv sitcom (think "Alice"). We waited to be seated a few minutes because "Our busser doesn't get in till 10") and it was around 9:15. Then when we sat...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Do you take reservations? We would like to have lunch there on May 6th. It is USF's graduation so lots of people in town and looking for good places to eat. My son, the graduate, chose your restaurant to eat at after his 0900 graduation ceremony. I figure we could be there close to 1100; maybe 1115 am, with a group of 6 adults and one infant.

call up, the owners are Greeks. If you have some greek blood in your group and /or can say / speak a few words in greek, you will be in for a treat. Its big enough for large groups.
