We are a proud family restaurant built on values of fine dining and great service. Our background is a unique combination of two dynamic cultures (Samoan and Italian), and it is here that we bring you our style of food creativity. Italian cuisines influenced from the northern regions of Italy and selected local favorites from Samoa, make Paddles restaurant a must visit while on the island. We offer dinner and a full bar service. Feel free to stop over and enjoy the atmosphere we have created for you. La famiglia Rossi

I planned to arrive just before sunset and was only one of a few in the restaurant at the time. Nice glass of pinot gris from NZ for 16 tala. The mediterranean baked fish was perfectly cooked and with nice simple flavors for 49tala. Only comment is that I had to add quite a bit of salt - always good to season during cooking although with care :). Staff were attentive but unobtrusive; the owner an Italian/Samoan was charming... i'll return

If you can imagine fine Italian dining combined with the exquisite fresh ingredients of Samoa, views over the water and a friendly happy atmosphere, you have Paddles. Just a short evening stroll from Aggie Grey's. The prices are very reasonable and the Pina Coladas are to die for. Be sure to book and let your gracious host, Giovani make it your best dining experiance on the island.

Recently my husband and I visited Samoa a beautiful majestic Island.while there we visited Paddles Restaurant,must say that where it is situated has amazing sunsets onto the bay.Being welcomed into the restaurant by a very debonair young man who just made you feel welcomed ushering their waiters to you to look after made us so feel special. Food, well, We can say amazing!,delious, presentation,wow ! I guess thats why we went back to try other yummi dishes during our stay in Apia. We highly reccommend going to Paddles you will not be disapointed.

We walked in to Paddles without a reservation just hoping by chance there would be a table free. We were greeted by Giovanni (the owner) and were made to feel welcome straight away. Even though we hadn't booked a table at this very popular restaurant it wasn't a problem and he found us a table in the lounge area. We were introduced to our waiter who would look after us (unfortunately have forgotten his name) and again he shook our hands and was so welcoming. The food was absolutely delicious with the Samoan Oka being our absolute favourite it was so fresh!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Paddles and the service we received made it such a lovely experience. Thank you to all who work there and we definitely recommend you visit this fabulous restaurant in Apia
