Best food!

The atmosphere here was incredible, we sat by the water and it was breathtaking. And the food was some of the best food I have ever had. Reasonably priced for a 5 star restaurant.

We did not to expect to enjoy a restaurant at a resort as much as we did this one. Earlier reviews had prepared us for an expensive dinner but we were surprised to find, that although the main dish was above what we would expect to pay in the U.S it was accompanied by dishes compliments of the chef which...

It doesn't get much better than this, you really feel like your in Tahiti when your sitting over crystal clear water in a bungalow restaurant receiving 5 star service and superb meals. We went in the evening and were amazed at the stunning setting of this restaurant, it is unique and a must do when in Tahiti. The food was... More

The setting of the restaurant is amazing, it sits over the water and you can see the ocean life just swimming around. It was so cool and breath taking.

Loved the over water location. Watching the fish and sharks swim past was great. Food was absolutely wonderful. As good as anything we've had in Australia in the last couple of years. Wine list ok..prices are typical for French polynesia..more than we expect to pay in Australia. Couple of nice Chilian whites.

Le Lotus is set in a quiet location at the far end of the Intercontinental resort. The restaurant is small and intimate set inside two cylindrical tiki covers--open air. There are beautiful views of Moo'rea, fish swimming in lighted open waters and light splash of waters. Our service was excellent covered by ambitious and attentive young man and woman. They... More

The Tahitian vanilla infused olive oil was an unexpected treat. The seafood was fresh and well-prepared. We had wonderful dinner.
