We ate here for dinner. no reservation, but arrived when they opened for the dinner service at 7pm and had not trouble getting a table. The place quickly filled (it's quite a cosy space), with more local people than tourists, with families as well as couples, many obviously regulars. All the food was delicious, fresh and interesting. The fish was... More

The menu features the best ingredients and while varied is not overwhelming and so prices reflect the premium ingredients.the wine list is complete and pairs well with the menu We had an outstanding tartar of red tuna ( chose the small...

It's hard to find a poor restaurant in Papeete, but this one is one of the best. We went there for lunch with some local friends and were delighted. They had menus in English for those of us (my wife and I) who don't speak French. The waiter was also fluent in English. It had a nice décor. The food... More

We went here based by trip advisor, concierge and local recommendations... the food was very good. I agree that the portions are large enough to share, so be sure to share! The service was good but not excellent. We had the salmon,feta crabmeat salad and foie gras starters, they were both excellent but could feed 2-3 people as starters. The... More

One might expect such a fine restaurant in a larger city, but on an island in the South Pacific, what a nice surprise. My scallops and tinted risotto was cooked to perfection. the lunch was finished with a nice desert and coffee.I look forward to going again next year.

Nice interior, very friendly service, and excellent food (beautiful and tasty). By far the best of the many restaurants at which I've eaten here. The lighting is bright, so do not expect romance. As well, there are no windows, and so no views. Dining room also gets a little warm when full, so dress island-casual. Saw many people being turned... More

We were in Papeete for a couple of days and wanted something special and French. This place was perfect. It was an oasis in an alleyway.. What a pleasant surprise! Delicious food and excellent staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. It is expensive but well worth it.
