Great

Heard about this place from some other travellers staying at the same hotel as us. It is a little way out of town but definitely worth the trip. My partner had Steak and Lobster. What an impressive meal that was. Lucky he is a big eater. I had a chicken pasta dish, which was nice.

Loved the atmosphere of peering out from the middle of a huge tree to the branches, and town of Apia far below. Best cooked food we had on our holiday.

Excellent food and service out of the town. Lobster and steak dishes were fantastic and filled the table literally! A great find and worth the short trip out of town.

This restaurant was a fantastic find and was the best meal we had in Samoa having eaten at most of the top restaurants around the island. The steak ranks amongst the best I've ever had anywhere in the world and the lobster was fantastic also. Try the Oka to start for an authentic Samoan favourite!

Went with a large group for steak night on Friday where they serve steak, salad, and appetizer for 60 tala. It may have been the best steak I've ever eaten.

I used to love Kokobanana. I know a few people who still love going there. Unfortunately I'm not one of them anymore. Which makes me sad because their steaks were always super delicious and served on a sizzling hot plate which was quite the spectacle. But - yes, here comes the but - the last couple of times I have... More

My friend and I ate here twice in our week visit to Samoa. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. The portion sizes are enormous.

This place has great ambiance. Its set in the hills and is spacious and light and fun. Can't remember what the food is like as I always enjoy the environment but I never complain when I leave. Cocktails are great!
