This restaurant is one of the best in Apia, if you want to treat someone special, hence the prices are not exactly at the lower end.

Have had dinner here a handful of times with friends and have not been disappointed. Quiet tasteful surroundings . Delicious menu which with is matched with a good wine selection.

Only great quality produce (local and overseas) is used in these delectable dishes.

Greatly recommend you try and sashimi , steak and of course the dessert menu will not disappoint

When we decided where to go to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary - we both knew - Bistrau Tatau - would be the answer. Most dishes are nouvelle cuisine-style with mixture of Samoan and mediteranean flavours- our favorite entry is the famous double-baked souffle and our mains are fresh and superbly cooked fish of the day - marlin, tuna and masi-masi, being the best. We also enjoy the quiet atmsophere - with its special fine-dining decor (with its signature wall-fresco of famous Samoan artist Fatu Feu'u) and atmosphere, without the crowd noise of our other favorite restaurants in town. They also have great signature desserts, the cheese-cake being one of my favorites. The service in this restaurant is professional and of the highest quality. Thank you Bill for being such great host on that special day.

Had a very average steak and mash meal. For the price paid, the meal should be shining! The dessert on the other hand both the infamous sticky date pudding and the cheesecake were simply heaven!!! Both desserts were DEVINE!

Didn't really like the food here - eaten here twice and both times I wish I had eaten elsewhere. Not the nicest of settings either right on the corner of the lights and the markets.
