Had two meals with great hosts Joe and Amanda. Great service, food and friendly atmosphere. We knew these folk in St Heliers, where they ran Scalinis. The food here is every bit as good and loved seeing a lot of old favourites on the menu.

Fantastic service and fantastic food. Thoroughly recommended. We had a day in Apia and decided to have a bite of dinner before returning to the resort on the south coast. Scalinis was recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint.
