coco pop french toast is the only moderately good thing, people without reservations where being sat before me who had booked a table.
We were left standing for ten mins before getting our table.

My food was disgusting, crab cakes tasted like uncooked dough.

Insanely expensive for an overcrowded horrible brunch with terrible service.

Dined in San Lorezos before and was blown away by the quality of food, drinks and service.
However, this time the food was average (i.e Luke-warm and frankly bland). Cocktails were also awful (sorry for being blunt but really not impressed they were either really sour or watery).
Service was also way too fast - we were served our starters 5mins after ordering while we had only finished before our plates were taken away and the mains came about 10mins after. We understand the need to turn tables but when it's rushed you don't feel comfortable as a customer. (Our waitress was lovely though!)
Unfortunately wont be in a rush back :(

I really enjoyed my meal here. When arrived we did have to wait over 20 mins for our table even though we had booked it but were compensated with glasses of Prosecco on the house.

The service was fabulous & all staff we came into contact with were amazingly friendly. I had a little suitcase with me and was putting it under the table but they put it in a store room for me so I'd be more comfortable. They asked us to move tables just after our food when we were chilling, which of course was grand & no bother, but they still gave us a free drink for it. And the food, YUM! I'd heard good things but this was my first time there. It definitely won't be my last!

I visited with a friend at lunchtime and we had made a reservation just to be sure of a seat as I know Sam Lorenzo's is quite popular. We were seated immediately and the service was excellent. Very friendly staff who checked that everything was okay with our food, drinks etc. The price point is more on the expensive side so lunch here would not be a regular thing for me but the food was quite good regardless. I got the crab cakes which came with pouched eggs in Hollandaise sauce and duck fat roast potato squares and asparagus. It was really delicious but a bit big for a lunch dish as I struggled to finish it. I had planned to get their famous coco pop french toast dish but felt like something more savoury on the day and certainly did not have room for a desert. If I return again the french toast will be first on my list to try!

We were asked to leave the table after 75 minutes. No warning of this 75 minute booking rule for brunch when we booked/ made the reservation . Other tables were not asked to leave despite being there longer than us. We were not drinking alcohol and expect this is why we were asked to leave. We were actually going to order wine before the waiter informed us we had to vacate the table. We then went Elsewhere for a drink. Odd rule but seems to only apply to those who are not drinking cocktails!

I found for what I got it was far too expensive , calamari starter was a joke 3 small pieces on a bed of salad the calamari was tasteless , the pasta ragu dish was tasty but at 20€ not worth the price , I asked the waitress for Parmesan but she never bothered to come back ..

Really friendly staff. I got the small antipasti, was massive, definitely for sharing! The frutti di mare pasta was amazing. If you're getting dessert, get the maltesers cheesecake, it'll change your life.

Brunch food was great but I think the popularity is ruining this place. A constant queue out the door of people waiting for tables. Even with a reservation we weren’t seated for a good 20 minutes as everyone had reservatations. This coupled with the difficulty of actually getting staff attention somewhat ruined our experience.

That being said the Maltesers cheesecake is amazing.

Cool environment and good service but the food was lacking.
We had a crab starter (a special on the night) which had a measly amount of crab, but moreso, which did not work as a combination with the other ingredients.
One main course was skatewing, again a special but unfortunately was nothing special and poorly presented.
The other dish was pork belly, which was overdone and the meat was dry.

We booked a table for 5 a few weeks in advance, I received a phone call on the morning of the dinner to confirm our booking of 5. When we arrived at the restaurant we were squeezed into a table for 4. One of our party had to sit sideways at the table, the staff would not give us a bigger table. This was very disappointing.
