It's not hard to understand why Paddles at the Marina is one of Apia's most popular haunts. The views across the lagoon are wonderful, and soaking up the sunset with a cold Vailima (local beer) is the perfect start to an evening meal. Regulars rave about the oka (marinated raw fish), which is best accompanied by the Samoa twist on French fries, either taro chips or breadfruit chips. Owned by the Rossi family, who turn on a warm and friendly Italian welcome, the
restaurant also has fine-tuned traditional Italian dishes prepared with fresh local produce, including delicious fish lasagna. Here you can also sip the best espresso on the island.
