Prawn dish as part of Samoan cuisine

Eat and Drink

To dine in Samoa is to taste the most authentic tropical flavours in the Pacific.

From the freshest seafood to the sweet flavours of locally grown fruits, there is no shortage of delicious traditional and modern dishes to try.

Hunt down one of Samoa’s great quality restaurants and cafes - they may take a bit of finding but the quirky and remote locations are just as wonderful as the food and coffee you’ll be served once you get there.

And a compulsory must is joining a cultural tour or fiafia night to experience the delights of real fresh flavours, Samoa style.

You will not go hungry

Samoa has a wide range of eateries, from high-end gourmet where traditional meets modern or international influence, to a delicious meal in a casual setting.

Most cafes and restaurants are found in Samoa’s capital city Apia, but many of the resorts that are dotted around Upolu and Savai’i Islands offer quality dining options too.

It's a cultural thing

Food is a central and important part of the Samoan culture, so this is a country that knows how to cook. Tasting a meal straight from an umu (earth oven) is an experience not to be missed. Many resorts offer umu cooked food as part of their weekly fiafia (cultural) nights, or you can join a cultural tour.

Traditional local fare, such as palusami, is readily available at the daily markets in Apia on Upolu and Salelogo on Savai’i. It really doesn't get more authentic Samoa than that.

Delights from the sea

Being an island nation, Samoa is the ideal place for lovers of seafood to fill their holiday with delicious fresh tropical delights from the sea.

Either try the many seafood dishes available in Samoa’s restaurants and cafes, or head down to the Apia fish market. There, the daily catch is always a huge variety, including many types of fish, crayfish and octopus.
