We were a group of six ranging in age from 9 to 71, including three vegetarians do we were not easy to please! However Paddles managed to do so. The good was delicious and enjoyed by all and the service was friendly and unobtrusive. Highly recommended.

Lived upto it's reputation, the raw tuna is a must. My other half had the pork belly , not crispy skin .. but if your interested it's worth the trip. Best to book can get busy.

food, views and service were all fantastic at this restaurant. We also had lunch at Milan Cafe, owned by the same people. Both locations top notch!

The best service in Apia.. Food Awesome..Good wine selection..The pork belly and masi masi were both terrific and the deserts were very good also.. The owners Gio and Dora made us feel very welcome. We are coming back to Samoa and will definitely eating at Paddles again.

Recent family holiday to Samoa with three teenagers to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We chose Paddles as was top of the list on trip advisor! Good enough reason, the people chose well. Food is delicious, service excellent and prices reasonable. Would definitely recommend!

I ate here last night. At first I was concerned about having pasta in such he's, as it can be very heavy. The lasanga was light, full of fresh tomato sauce, basil and cheese, and hit the spot.
