Amazing

This is my third holiday in Samoa within the last 11 months and it's the third time I have had an amazing dining experience. Each course was delicious or as my kids would say "party in my mouth". I would thoroughly recommend the seared tuna salad. Service was faultless.

This restaurant is well known by the locals and came highly recommended. Our meal and dining experience didn't disappoint. Joe and his team gave wonderful service and were very attentive. The food was delicious and our only disappointment was being unable to return before we left Samoa. Ah well .... next trip!

I've been here a couple of times with friends, the food is amazing, i even eat things I usually don't like and they taste yummy here(e.g.capers). It's a beautiful restaurant.

Second time here and the service and food were excellent both times. Just out of the busy part of Apia on the cross island road so easy to find. Clean and tidy. The only down fall was no imported beers at the time we went. Not a worry as the local brew is fairly good.

A truly wonderful experience & food was magnificent. Recommended to us we went along with high expectations.... we were not disappointed. The seafood antipasto was superb & the Spiced Ribbed Tuna was the best seared Tuna I have ever had. Fantastic value for money. If you want fine dining in Samoa this is the place to go!

Our last night of our 10 day stay in Samoa. We had tried to eat at Scalinis the night before but they were full but glad we persevered and returned the next night to sample the excellent fare, lovely cool atmosphere and great staff.

We were four for lunch. The aircom freezing cold and so the whole atmosphere in the restaurant, which is a bit outside of Apia. The pasta was nice but not "aldente" and the sauce too creamy for italian taste. We had fish as main: two fish were o.k. but the other two over cooked and dry. The service was not... More
