Delicious lunch. Great owner ROSE...very friendly. I would honestly say, make sure you spray yourself with bug repellent, but that's the nature of the area. You will be thrilled by this local hangout. The food is exceptional.

As so many have attested here this restaurant is a hidden gem on Tahiti Iti. We stopped for lunch on a Sunday while doing a round tour of Tahiti and enjoyed it very much. Make sure you call in advance if you are going on a weekend. The atmosphere, views, and service is very friendly. The food tastes as good... More

We took a ride to Teahupo'o to see the big waves. Ran in to a friend of our friends surfing there...small world. Anyway, saw this place on the way down and it caught my eye. We had to waste some time to get a boat to the waves so we went up to this restaurant to grab a bite. The... More

I do not want to call it ding as the restaurant is eating at it's best. The shrimp are the best I have ever had. I had them steamed in bana leafs as well as pan sautéed. Both were sweet and succulent. Get a seat next to the water and toss the shrimp heads to the fish. What fun while... More

On Tahiti iti, a 30 minute car ride from Papeete. Sits right on the beach, if not for the raised floor, you'd get your feet wet in the surf! Everything about this French restaurant feels right. The cat (Mehti? not sure of spelling) waits patiently by your table for her share. The food and wine you'd expect on a side... More

This place is a gem for seafood lovers and serves a great local rosé, (who knew local wine was made here...it's great ). But back to the restaurant. So welcoming. Great little spot on the beach by the road. The menu is extensive. We both had the raw fish gourmet plate and it was superb. We washed it down with... More

On our first day in Tahiti, we stopped at La Plage de Maui for what we thought would be just a drink, at 5:00 pm. But we clearly fell in love with the site and looking at the menu and talking to Rose, the owner, there was no way we would eat elsewhere. Rose prepared some super fresh and authentic... More

We had a delightful lunch on our visit with Tracey from Unique Tahiti. The relaxed, welcoming and homely environment of a beach shack was further enhanced by the sandy floor overlooking the crystal clear lagoon. Service was relaxed, but very attentive, a menu as provided in English once it was found our French was limited. It was lovely to start... More
