This was such a nice place to eat and drink and the view out to the ocean was magic. The music was very enjoyable, the staff were a pleasure to deal with. A little hard to find (we went with locals) but worth it when you find it

We have just arrived back from the beautiful island of Samoa. In our 8 days we stayed at 4 different accommodation types and did not eat at the same place twice just so we could soak up everything about this wonderful place and friendly people. Kokobana for us was the absolute best place to dine with our 2 young boys.... More

One of my favorite places to bring friends, family and business associates. I've been here multiple times and they do everything really well but I love their lobsters and steaks the best. If you come to Kokobanana you must try their steaks or lobsters and their yummy cocktails. Totally great value for money!

Kokobanana has some of the best steak I have eaten anywhere. For $40 AUD we scored a steak and lobster which took up two whole plates and was more than enough to share between two. In addition to this, the cocktails are some of the best on the island and only cost $6 AUD. We have come back here time... More

They got my order wrong, the tacky music was crap and extremely loud, there were dirty dishes everywhere on the salad buffet table, there was a big waiter walking around with a big open and weeping rash on his leg. The steak was rare instead of medium and when we pointed the issues out to the waitress she was argumentative... More

I briefly stopped by to check this place out during my late morning walk, but I somehow felt it unwelcoming. I felt I was judged by the mannerism and tone in which the lady at counter spoke to me, so we never consider it a place to go for drinks or dine at, which is a shame, but if you... More

I went to Vanuatu recently where i was told you can get the best steak, coconut fed cows... I ate steak all week, and still, nothing compares to the Steak at Kokobanana! Always so tender, and the marinade and onions is just too nice... My mouth is watering thinking about it!!!
