Yum yum and yum

We wanted to sit outside and the seating area was not set up but that didn't worry them they quickly made a table and put bug repellent down. The service was very good,so welcoming. The food was the best steak I have ever had. I love steak and it was so yum. Well worth a visit

This place is another 'must visit'. We were taken here by a local couple who dine here regularly and I can see why! The food was one of the best meals I have had anywhere including NZ. Lots of seafood available, and I took the locals tip and had the Entree share for two, the Seafood antipasto, as a main... More

Attended a birthday luncheon here. We ordered a variety of starters including very fresh Tuna Sashimi. I had a seared tuna steak for my main. Great food.

We ate here one night on our recent stay in Apia. The food was delicious, the service was very good and the prices reasonable.

Excellent food, great service. If you're in Apia then don't miss this. I had zuppa di pesce - lovely fish and a great tomato based broth followed by a tuna salad - cooked rare and melt in the mouth. And then beautiful deserts.

Absolutely loved the dinner we had here. I had the amazing salmon, my partner had yummy fish of the day - both our meals were cooked to perfection! Tiramisu for desert mmmmmmmm to die for!! We were lucky enough to meet the owners/chef after too - such a lovely couple! Definitely the best meal on the island!

I loved the pasta here. Jo, the owner sat with us while we ate and we reminisced of his time working in Auckland kitchens and the time he had the same named restaurant in St Heliers, Auckland. Loved hearing the local chat, especially the chat on the upcoming All Blacks historic game in Apia coming up in a fortnight.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We were not disappointed. The service and food was brilliant. We shared an entree is seafood antipasto. It was fantastic. We chose the Lamb dish and local fish. Again brilliant. There was also a very good wine selection to match the food. I would rate this place and one of Samoas... More
