When we arrived at the resort for dinner, the tables over the water looked beautiful! but unfortunately the food was average, small servings for the price and not as tasteful as other French cuisine restaurants we visited. Expectation of the mains for the price was a bit disappointing and expect to pay at least $200 for a couple for dinner... More

My wife and I had lunch here today. The food was quite good. I had the avocado cold soup which was outstanding. My main course was the fish with bananas. It was good, but not nearly as good as the soup. The service was excellent, and the scenery is beyond compare.

We booked dinner here because we saw the pix when staying at Intercontinental. We visited it and booked evening for 4. It was incredible. Moonlight evening with view of Morea, table by water with fish visible from table, incredible fresh seafood and intimate setting over the water style, small place with only 10 or so tables...very magical....I would recommend this...

This place is one of my favorite for a beautiful meal in Tahiti. The selection and the quality of products are superb. Everything is perfect: the place, the food, the service and the wines.

Definitely the best part of our short stay at the Intercontinental Tahiti. Nice extra touches up front with the olive oil choices and starter teasers. Main courses were top notch. Nice, breezy location on the property lit with torches made it very comfortable and romantic.

Enjoyed the meal but it was unmemorable as right now I can't recall the dishes.Eating over water with reef fish splashing in the lagoon below was unique.Menu was set up by French chef but maybe not all ingredients are in Tahiti.

For the price we pay here, you can get better elsewhere. However, food in Papeete is expensive everywhere. Had a better meal at Jimmys restaurant in downtown Papeete. Waiters/waitresses are nice but do not go out of their way to enhance your dining experience

Very nice restaurant with a great view overlooking the water. Reasonably priced meals, lots of fish, and they serve as much bread as you want with dinner.
