“Lovely Views helpful staff”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Restaurant overlooks the harbour. This is the one on the right hand side with orange chirs, there is another establishment on the left. Food was good with reasonable choice, staff very helpful. Cost was reasonable. The bill was reasonable, good value

“Awesome all round”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We came here for dinner and were really impressed.The food was excellent with large portions . Nice views and a nice selection of desserts which was a biggie for us. The most impressive thing was the great staff.friendly attentive, not over bearing and always seemed to appear when something was needed with that very thing! There is truly nothig that can do better then waiter who can read your mind! We did not tell them were celebrating our anniversary but it truly felt like they knew as we felt treated extra special. Two thumbs up. Will be recommending and returning!!!

“Food Delicious, Service Magnificent!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We booked 1 hour before turning up, a whole group of 11, all starving and looking for somewhere great to spend our Christmas Eve. We arrived and table was reserved and ready. The service was great, our waiter was attentive, and very professional & polite. We were offered the drink menu first, we ordered and were impressed with the wait time. Drinks were made strong lol! which I like.. so no complaints there. Their "Niu Passion" cocktail was a hit, sweet but oh so good! Later we continued to order, good selection... Food I thought was beautiful I ordered the steak, & it was a good decent sized steak, cooked medium rare as I requested. sauce to top it off was to die for. I absolutely loved my experience dining with Paddles. Our tips surely showed our appreciation. Will definitely dine there again & recommend to all tourists looking for somewhere GREAT to eat. Our group of 11 absolutely loved it. #SauniReunion #FunBus

“Nice Food, Limited Vegan Choices”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Had dinner here on Friday night, 3rd January 2014, with my 4 sisters, brother and 2 brothers in law (thanks Dr Fiu). Great ambience, wonderful location. It was raining that night so the view was not that good. They have a good range of European (Italiano), seafood and some Samoan dishes. the steaks looked good, sadly I'm not a carnivore anymore.
I wanted a bigger selection of vegan choices than what was available.
The closest for me was the Risotto.
Well cooked, great portions, and a good wine selection.
A few more salads and the ability to upsize an appetizer to a main size would have been great.
I asked and she said sorry, no can do. Maybe the waiting staff were having an off day. I don't blame them - that rain was a killer!
