“great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went here for dinner and the location was great. Right on the water, next door to a bar and friendly staff.

“Good food, attentive staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We found the staff here to be excellent - they were all smiles and greeted you both when you arrived and left.
The food was good and nice sized portions - we both had pasta and i had to take some of mine home...

Only negative if that it is pricy both compared to other restaurants on the island and for what you are getting - 5 star prices but not 5 star food - having said that we would go again

“Paddles - No. 1 in Services, Hospitality, Food. BEST in all of Apia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were in Apia for the Samoa Swim Series and the Samoa's Half Ironman. We have been to many restaurants and hotels for meals and we rated Paddles as one of the best restaurant in all of Apia. When we entered the waiters greet us with much Alofas. They are so polite and smile all the time. They gave an excellent fantastic service. The food is awesome. The best food on the island. The owner is fantastic and all about making the customers happy. The prize was right and well worth for great quality food and services. We hope all other restaurants and hotels in Samoa should learn "SERVICE & HOSPITALITY" from Paddles. Tanoa Tusitala should send their staff to learn what "services" means from Paddles including their Palagi manager Karen?

“Great service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is a lovely location on the marina with a cool sea breeze flowing in and close to the bars if you want to head out afterward. The service is fantastic - you really the five star experience here. But you do pay for it, its one of the most expensive restaurants in Apia and I would argue the food doesn't necessarily the price. Still, a very enjoyable overall experience. They also have a comprehensive wine selection.
