This restaurant was highly recommended to us by the hotel staff. Although the food was very good, the restaurant did not quite live up to its reputation. Although inside a small mall, beautiful setting right on the water.

From the moment we were greeted at arrival until we finished our meal the staff was quite attentive. Even better was the food, authentic French yet local. There's a geat view of the lagoon and some motus.

Great wine selection by the bottle, limited choices by the glass but what I ordered was very good and reasonably priced. Service was friendly. The presentation of the starters and entrees was exquisite but the taste just didn't match the quality. We've eaten at so...More

I'm really sorry for the lengthy delay but I just saw this now. Anywhere you want to go the store or restaurant will send someone to pick you up. It is the greatest means of transportation and it's free.
