Though on the pricey side the service is attentive and friendly. Our lasagne and pork belly were excellent, while the banana pudding very naughty! Though the place was busy the staff were efficient. You do pay a bit more than other restaurants in Apia but, as they say, you get what you pay for.

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

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!!!

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
