This is the restaurant of the Le Meridien Papeete Hotel. The food is really expensive, the place has a nice view and decoration, and the food was ok, but didn't have a relation with the cost.

After numerous stays at the Intercontinental Tahiti and many enjoyable meals at La Tiare, we can't say enough good things about the preparation of the food, the quality, the visual arrangement and the taste. The breakfasts are perhaps the best in all of French Polynesia; their lunch menu is diversified enough to please any age, and the evening meal is... More

We were here for Brunch (included with our room), a regular breakfast, late lunch and dinner. I am not sure if they are under staffed or super slow. For the prices and it being located at the intercontinental resort it was very disappointing. Food is less than mediocre and we really didn't have costly options to go off the resort... More

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and several lunches and dinners here. Solid hotel food prepared nicely. This is not fine dining but a lovely setting with simple and good food. Be sure to book your hotel room to include breakfast if you can get a deal for 3 days or more. A good value - something for everyone. Lunch was... More

Nice setting overlooking the lagoon which makes it rate very good as everything else was just average. This might be because upon our arrival the electricity had just come back on so they were in a catch up mode during a busy breakfast rush. The service was slow, the breakfast good, yet just average. We finally got our check by... More

On the last day of our 2 weeks trip to French Polynesia we had long layover in Papeete (>5 hrs). We didn’t want to just sit in airport. We were hoping to have dinner in Le Lotus - fine dining restaurant in the InterContinental hotel, but they had some private function on that day and it was closed to public.... More

My wife and I ate here for a late lunch as we arrived and just wanted a simple lunch. Perhaps their buffet would have been a better option. Service was extremely slow, food had no seasoning (vegetables and main) and my "seared tuna" was coooked all the way through.. I had seared tuna half a dozen times at other hotels... More

Meals were the same thing every day,serving staff do their best but the food lets them down,the resort puts on special entertainment to attract diners but its hard to please when the management won't review and change the menu.
