Great menu, superb service, delectable dishes, generous portions and quick turnaround times. That says it all. The ambience is spartan but smart. It's one of those places in any town where you've simply got to go!

This restaurant's menu is delicious. The bread was one of the best I've had - probably cos it was cooked fresh out of the oven. The chicken morrocco dish was to die for, and so was the tuna main dish. The sashimi dish was delicious too as our entree. Go there! Worth every tala and will definitely return.

Dined here for lunch 12pm-3pm. Had the place to myself. Very classy venue but the menu is divine.. Must eat include the pizzette...fried bread with garlic butter. I had the South Island salmon with a light miso crust, tomotao and cucmber stack and tempura prawns...DIVINE! Loads of NZ meats on the menu :)

My friends took me here for dinner before the end of my holiday. The food was amazing. Happy with all my choices - ravioli, cockles and tiramasu. Lovely atmosphere and great customer service. Would definitely return on my next visit to Samoa.

Always a good spot to visit is this little restaurant. Originally in New Zealand it is well run, has a classic décor, good aircon (a must for dining in Samoa) and good service. Good value meals that are well presented. Wine was pricy, but often is in Apia especially when compared to the very well priced meals.

Worth the price it was paid food. Delicious, top quality and great location. Beautiful venue and the service is excellent not too long of a wait even if it was a full house.
