Beautiful restaurant

OMG the food portions are definitely worth the money that you pay for a meal and the taste of them was excellent. We had a big party of 45 and they were able to cater for that. The food come out quickly, which was great. They were able to split bills which was awesome. We loved it so much, we... read more

We came here for my birthday meal. It was quiet but we were there early and got a table without a reservation. I had lobster and my partner had a pasta dish. It was large portions and really lovely! Definitely one to go visit if you are wanting to fine dine in Apia!

Food was nice, we ordered Sashimi entree I had tried chicken and chips and my boyfriend had fish and chips lol we didn't order the lobster or steak but after having our meals maybe we should have. The Sashimi didn't seem as fresh as other we tasted on the island. The fish tasted a little off so I wouldn't recommend... More

The rstaurant is about a 10 minute drive out of Apia heading up the Cross Island road. The sign is difficult to see so look for the Curry House on the left and turn down the dirt road beside it and Kokobanana is at the back. Easy parking. The restaurant is open air and very large. They do have specials.which... More

A local recommended this restaurant to us as my husband wanted lobster. It is quite a way out of town but so worth the drive. When we arrived the restaurant was doing a roaring business and it was mainly locals so you know it's good food and atmosphere. I had the NZ sirloin which was amazing but my husband raved... More

We've been here twice now on 2 visits to Samoa. The first time was amazing the second time, we took a big group of people to share what we hoped would be like our last experience here. The staff are very polite but the ordering systems are not suitable to take on a large group booking. The food was not... More

Kokobanana is definitely the best steakhouse in Samoa and is definitely great value for money!!! They are consistent in their service and the quality of their food. Highly recommended for meat lovers.

The quality of the food is fantastic! A popular resturant and I know why, the meals are great! Good back ground music from their one man band. Only down side are the mosquitos and can get quite hot. Other than that, very nice simple bar and grill with delicious meals.
