Our last night of our honeymoon, we chose Le Lotus restaurant for dinner since it was a few steps away from our hotel room in the Intercontinental resort. Unfortunately is was raining all day and evening and it was also very windy. The restaurant is designed like two overwater bungalows so rains and winds were a concern but, they handled... More

The food was really good. We started with duck pate and a cheese platter and we split the scallops with risotto. Nice view and great service!

Definitely the fanciest restaurant in Tahiti and the food and service are there to match. The Duck appetizer was amazing and one of the best duck dishes I've eaten. and the Vanilla Pancake Souffle for dessert should not be missed. Ambiance is great on the waters edge looking looking out to Moorea for sunset with sharks and other large fish... More

To kill time during a long layover in Tahiti we booked the Le Lotus 2 course lunch and pool access option. The meal at Le Lotus was divine. I had the scallops with champagne sauce and they were the biggest and tastiest scallops I've had. The sauce was sensational. My husband had the duck breast with a date and walnut... More

Maybe i was expecting too much but if you advertise that all your receipes come from a 3 stars chef you have to offer more! Nice dishes but nothing special! Price are not high compared with other hotel restaurants in the area tought.

If you are staying at the Intercontinental you pretty much have to eat here. First reason is because if you don't you then only have 1 place to eat on property. Second reason the views are stunning. I think lunch is a better option. They do not open for dinner until after the sun has set. What a mistake! At... More

I have no doubt this restaurant is the very best in Tahiti. The intimacy and romantic ambience of eating a gorgeous open-air dinner while over the water by candlelight in the South Pacific is wonderful and the service and quality of food doesn't let the experience down, everything we ordered was amazing. A magical night and a highlight of a... More

Quiet and intimate with good views. A short walk across the resort ideal if you want a good meal when you and you partner are tired and need a bit of quiet time.

This was our first "fancy" honeymoon meal and it was very special. We saw our first shark here which was exciting. They didn't feed the sharks themselves which the environmentally conscious side of me likes. However, the shark visited to get him/herself a real fish! You eat overwater with Moorea in the distance. The food was delicious and the cocktail... More
