When we arrived there was a large party of about 14 and another couple tables with 2-3 people each. As there is only one waitress the wait was long the entire night. Our dinner lasted about 1.5 hours and that included only an entree and no drinks, dessert, or appetizer. I had the local fish and my wife had the... More

Had a nice dinner here. Attentive and friendly service. Food good but not amazing. Limited choice but seemed good if you want vegetarian. Ride back to the hotel with the chef afterwards was nice. Be sure to organise with your hotel. In our opinion food is better at Rudy's or the Mayflower.

My husband and I passed the plantation while pearl shopping and came back for dinner. I wish we had known they picked up and deliver to the hotels. Our dinner was fresh and delicious!! To top it off, dessert and drinks were to die for. The owner is the sweetest woman and wanted us to have a great dining experience.... More

Good food, very nice staff, good value for your money, don't understand the critics. We were only 4 in the restaurants but everything was fine, nice, pleasant, good and we spent a very good time there. They have some dishes and specialties you won't find anywhere else in Polynesia!

Hands down this was the best restaurant we found on Moorea. A whole section of vegetarian food made it easy, which wasn't many other places we went to on the island. I had the marinated tofu with mangos, tofu and rice both times we went. I tried the Risotto with mushrooms, zucchini and Parmesan, a little heavy, but quite good... More

One of the rare restaurants in French polynesia that boasts of a vegetarian menu (works for me!!). We had lunch there..beautiful open sitting area, great owner/chef, delicious tofu and mango with rice! Prices comparable with other restaurants in Moorea. Caramalized biscuit with ginger ice-cream was great too. Their pick-up service for dinner is at 6:45 pm only, which adds a... More

Very friendly staff, very tasty food and well prepared. Attention to all details, enjoyable evening with relaxing jazz music and a very good meal. Quite expensive, but like everything on these paradisiac islands, but food & service were very high and appreciated. Thank you!

La Plantation reminds me of Ricks in Casablanca. 40ish style decor. Even has a piano. Garden for cocktails. Food mainly french and not Tahitian. The Food was good but not great. Not very crowded when we went. Dinner for 2, I had fish, my wife risotto, salad and a few vodkas and expresso for $90 or so. I love Natalie... More

We went for dinner while staying at the Intercontinental. The restaurant picked us up at the resort, and took us back afterward. Good, friendly service. We started with a drink outside (furniture arranged on the lawn beside the restaurant) ... nice way to start the evening. Tablesfor the meal were outside. Foie gras was amazing. Local fish in puff pastry... More

we were told good things about the Plantation, but our experience was poor at best. we were picked-up at the Hilton by Natalie and driven some distance to the restaurant- a Thursday night. Only a few tables were occupied. The food was poorly prepared and rather tasteless. we were disappointed. The staff consisted of the owner/chef and one waitress. The... More
