Excellent food and service - would recommend. We had a great first night in Apia at this spot. The pork and fish were top notch and the place had a great vibe too.

Decided to try after a rave review in a magazine. Service was fantastic, food was lovely, but a little on the expensive side. Was charged for a bottle of water given to me after as i had a choking fit -Thanks for the concern!
