Good French Food

Very good food in an upscale setting. Very small though, so recommend reservations, especially during the high season.

You have to try the shrimp dumplings. Service and food were some of the best on the island. Great wine list and actually very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants.

This was a fabulous French restaurant. We had grouper with citron and ginger. The best fish I ever had and I use to live on an island in South Carolina! The chocolate cake and ice cream just topped of our favorite meal.

We ate at the Lagoon restaurant in Bora Bora, St. Regis (3x), Villa Mahana in Bora Bora, the Crepe at the Hilton (2x) and seveal others in Moorea and Bora Bora, and this was the best by far! Unfortunitely, they don't have a... More

We meandered over to the Mayflower just as they were opening at 6:30 and had a wonderful meal. This really showed the French in French Polynesia; a fabulous blend of Polynesian flavors and fish with a French flair. The tuna carpaccio was fresh and flavorful and the magret du canard au sauce miel was surprisingly complex in flavor. Good wine... More

This restaurant looked very clean and nice. The staff was very friendly and offered meal suggestions. We went there to try the famous lobster ravioli which was okay but honestly my least favorite of the three main dishes we tried. The Foie Gras and duck fillet was over the top. Cooked perfectly and with so much flavor. This taste like... More

The food and wine were excellent, I had the lobster ravioli, one of their specialties and was not disappointed. Another nice thing it was right next door to the Hotel Hibiscus where we stayed.

Shuttle to restaurant came at 6:30pm on time. 5 minute drive located near the Hibiscus Hotel. Cost 500 francs each (roundtrip). Nice covered setting, open windows. Humid night! Few tables already seated. Wine selection small, but good prices under 1000. My husband had the tourist menu that included 3 courses for 4700. Tuna tartar.. really fresh and good, but huge... More

About the prices, we didn't think they were as unreasonable as some of the other reviewers thought. Yes, it's an upper-end restaurant, but we thought the food was worth it. The shrimp dumplings were amazing – they are not your traditional dumplings, so if you are a dim sum lover, expect something different. For one thing, they come with a... More
