Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Best coffee ever! Very friendly staff and good choice of cabinet food as well as a lunch menu. Unassuming decor but nice and clean

Great food. Great service. We stayed in Anna's Holiday House behind the Restaurant. Had dinner 4 times & breakfast once. Amanda and staff extremely welcoming. Food was delicious from the steak to the fish. Bacon & Egg Breaky was very good.

I had lunch with a friend at Pickled Lam. My Pollo Fettuccine was very nice. My friend had the Arancini and she was very surprised when it arrived. It consisted of 3 little balls. I don't know what we were expecting but definitely not 3...balls, probably smaller than the size of a golf ball 🤣🤣. The selection of pastry is great . I love their Cinnamon rolls. Yum. I always enjoy eating there.More

We were looking for a good meal out for our last night in Samoa, and we found it at Scalinis. The service was friendly and attentive and the ambience was cosy. All the tables were full and we were served our meals promptly - and...they were delicious. We ended up having three courses and all were yummy. Will definitely recommend to others.More

We enjoyed the food and coffee at this delightful cafe. We headed there almost everyday during our one week stay. We also throughly loved the restaurant food in the evening- advisable to book for dinner as exceptionally busy. Staff and owners were fabulous, friendly and...efficient. Highly recommend.More

These lovely people have THE BEST restaurant and deli in Samoa - they know great food! We stopped in to get picnic supplies, and they made me a roasted vegetable sandwich with hummus that was amazing. We also got coconut swirls for breakfast, but everything...looked so good! If I were to open a cafe here this is what I would strive for. The owner has had several successful restaurants in New Zealand as well as Samoa and it shows!More

The portion sizes were generous and the food delicious. Good service also. They had run out of the Rose wine, but did have whites and reds. And that’s the worst I could say about this restaurant. So nothing bad at all. We had 2 entrees,...2 Pasta mains, 2 glasses of wine, 2 soft drinks and took home 2 shortbread biscuits (delicious and buttery) and was approx WST300. (Approx AUD180). The staff were friendly and service at a suitable pace. We don’t want to be rushed at dinner, but also don’t want to wait too long either and Pickled Lam had it just right. Hey are open breakfast, lunch and dinner. Apia to the restaurant was WAT10 in a taxi.More

I had the fish of the day in lemon caper sauce, carrots and green beans, mashed potato. It was all prepared correctly, not cooked too long. There are books on bookshelves throughout. I may go back tonight because it's just up the street from the...Outrigger and because it's good enough for a return visit :) I don't understand why it has two names. I was looking for "Scalini" and I thought it had closed.More

On this visit to Samoa we made sure to lunch and dine at different establishments and it was absolutely wonderful to realize the culinary talents across the island. At the Pickled Lam / Scalini's we had the chicken fetuccine pollo, salmon, caesar salad and the...best garlic bread / pizzette for dinner, little pillows of goodness, tasty and with a generous sprinkling of parmesan. This restaurant came highly recommended by fellow hotel guests and we were not disappointed. We were lucky to get a table for two as the restaurant is popular with tourists and locals alike, many were turned away. Seki-eats like UberEats were picking up orders but this did not slow the kitchen down so evidently and smartly they must've done a lot of prep work. Amanda and her front of restaurant team were very welcoming, professional and attentive and the food, oh the food was divine, quick to arrive and moreish. This experience and the happy ambience will bring us back again. 100/100.More
