Terrific Steaks and More!

Had a magnificent Rib eye steak here, served on a sizzling platter with all the fixin's! The mixed drinks were well done too, we sampled the raspberry and melon margaritas and the cheeky tiki!

Finally got to go back to Kokobananas for the Steak and Lobster after having a family function there a couple of years ago. Just like our family function, the steak and Lobster was amazing!! Heard so many great stories about it and finally got to try it thank you to the lovely owners of Le Manumea Resort. I struggled to... More

This was our final dinner in Samoa and celebration of our great holiday. What a venue, tucked away amongst the trees with an open cultural style environment that is fun. The cocktails are a cool taste sensation especially the chocolate something served in a ceramic coconut shell. The steak and seafood are the highlights. Huge servings - my friend's lobster... More

We went here due to fab TripAdvisor reviews, thank you Trippers, this one a once in a life time experience. A little out of the way, not quite in Apia, 4km's out on the cross island road. Lovely setting in green leafy balcony, note no airconditioning but we had lovely breeze. Staff were welcoming and informative, but did not stand... More

They do a mean steak meal, which starts with an entreè of buttered prawns, all you can eat salad, a whopper of a super-delicious steak served in a hot plate with an amazing (yes amazing) sauce and followed by a dessert of icecream and mixed fruit. The steak....the steak came done just right, succulent and tender. Gorgeous ambience, easy listening... More

Went here twice during my stay in Samoa because it was so good. Had the prawn fettuccine first time and steak and lobster next time. Didn't think I'd be able to get steak like that on the island. Cooked to perfection just how i like it. Steak and lobster special is on Friday nights.. make sure you book as they... More

The portions are HUGE and the steak arrived with a lobster which was welcome with laughter however I was defeated in my attempts to clear my plate! A lovely setting surrounded by tropical plants however the walk down to the restaurant from the road made for great laughs at the expense of our friend and her stilettos. The staff were... More
