I enjoyed my meal of prawns and plantains very much. The curry was excellent. The servers were very friendly and took very good care of us. My husbands steak was very raw but it seems to be the Tahitian way. I'm not sure but he ordered a steak done medium and couldn't eat the very raw middle which is unfortunate... More

Do I like French food? I do nOW! I had really never experienced French food before and this was fantastic. I had Filet wit Fois Gras, escargot in a pastry puff and some delicious French wine. Our server was so gracious and made us feel like royalty. Hope I can return one day.

Well, to be honest If I could return to this restaurant I will deliberately choose the " Carré d'agneau " even though I already know how gorgeous it is. Moreover, the personel provide a valuable service on the other hand, and as a strict person I am far from disappointment on the other. Therefore, I strongly recommend it. :)

We had a 4-5 hour layover in Tahiti, and we were looking for a nice meal for the last official night of our honeymoon. I came across Le Grillardin on TripAdvisor, and we decided to try and squeeze in a meal before our... More

We were lucky to walk in and get a table on a Friday night just before the restaurant closed for 2 weeks. The restaurant is a clean, white converted house with various small rooms. The menu has french and English with standard french fare, nothing wrong with that. Service was a bit slow but generally good, I suspect the problem... More

This is a nondescript restaurant in the city Centre. Likewise the food on offer can be described as average. My concierge and driver both described it as one of the best but it seems on this visit I am yet to experience why they both recommend it. For me the standard bearer is Le Cocos. Lotus at the Inter Continental... More
