Review of Legends Taumeasina

Legends Taumeasina
Ranked #14 of 92 Restaurants in Apia
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$ 7 - US$ 10
Description: Legends Taum is only 5 minutes from central Apia and situated on the land side of the Taumeasina Island Resort. In March of 2018 we re-branded the restaurant focusing on Smoked Meats, and these are served with delicious house made sauces, pickles, and sides or classic potato salad, coleslaw, dill pickles, taro wedges and potato chips. Our deserts are simple palette cleansers, coconut Panacotta and an American style brownie with butterscotch sauce. Our brisket and pork are smoked for many hours at least twice a week, and chicken and sausages daily for 4 hours. The meats are tender, moist and delicious. We have house-made drinks, and can offer guests wine and beers with their lunch or dinner. We also offer guests items from our previous menu with poached fish and fish or tofu laksa, fish and chips and vegetarian hamburger. We offer guests a tranquil lagoon setting away from the central Apia and set in a pretty garden setting. Hours Tuesday 11:30 -3:30 am / Wed-Sat lunch & dinner.

There is nothing in the world like home smoked meat made from first principles and cooked very, very slowly. This is a delicious and affordable experience. This couple have devoted themselves to making the best. It’s not a fancy place but it’s a good feed made with love from scratch and it should be on your must-do list while you’re in Apia.

Great dinner. Good variety of food to pick from. I had the shredded pork and it was great, as well as the sides. Chicken wings are really good. If you like spicy, go after the spicy ones.

I had heard mixed reviews about the American BBQ and smokehouse menu at Legends cafe. I was there for dinner and I'm glad we ordered the full platter which served sausages, brisket, chicken, shredded pork which came with salad and three sauces. It was great and a platter for two could possibly be enough for three. Maybe...Will be back.

Finally an establishment that utilizes the beautiful produce of the island. Not to mention its outstanding service and a menu that will not disappoint. Take a break from the fast pace and fried food. 10/10
