The food here is just ok. The outdoor sitting in nice with a great view of the waterfront. The condiments are sorely lacking. Don't bother asking for ketchup. I think what they brought to me was tomato sauce and it was gross. The place does have a nice breeze so if you are looking for some relief from the heat... More

Nice people well tacked car of and not a bad place to have a beer and a snack before getting on the fairy. I had the fish and chips outstanding.

On an Easter Monday morning when Papeete was closed tight, it was good to remember this place on the third floor of the Ferry Terminal from a few Trip Advisor reviews. Excellent baguette, eggs over medium, vegetable omelet, coffee. Far better than the mediocre $37 breakfast buffet at the Tahiti Nui hotel. And a nice few of ferry activity.

One of the rare places open for breakfast on Sunday mornings. Had a poisson cru with rice, cappuccino and fresh orange juice. Fish was good and juice fresh. This was my second cappuccino in Tahiti and it seems that here it is not on that level what I have used to, but got my every morning coffee need satisfaid. Located... More

I can't believe no one else has reviewed this place, at least not in English. Breakfast choices in Papeete are almost nonexistent. It's hard to find a place that serves something beyond bread and soft bacon. Until I discovered Te Va'a Tere. It's an unassuming little cafeteria, but the service is fast and the food excellent. The guy who took... More
