Amazing Breakfast, Average Dinner

So we were staying at the Hilton, and we didn't rent a car. Our dining options were a bit limited. We would go here for breakfast and there was an incredible spread of items for US and all other cultures. The juices were over the top good and I loved the omelet and french bread. We were a bit... read more

The only thing I can recommend is the 9 hour lamb...everything else was pretty mediocre. I would recommend eating outside the Hilton. One of the problems is that the wait staff does not pay attention to your order. They acknowledge everything as if they understand but somehow any special instruction that you say does not make it to your plate.... More

After reading mixed reviews about this place, my wife surprised me on my birthday with a candlelight dinner by the beach. The truth is that when she said it I became skeptical of going to dinner here because of the prices and typical resort food. Boy was I in for a surprise! The food was really really good. Granted it... More

The buffet breakfast was fabulous. Everything from croissants to poison cru. We went to a buffet dinner on Saturday with singing and fire dancing. Buffet was better than the non-buffet nights. Decent food with some international flare. I wouldn't make a special trip if you aren't staying at the resort unless you are going to the show and the buffet.

We ate here as there are limited options in the area. Although Moorea is known to be expensive, the resorts take it to the next level. Our meals were enjoyable yet very over priced for what was simply some ravioli in tomato sauce

Had breakfast most days and dinner also. It's a shame because it could be the place to be with its tandem bar that does great cocktails and the views, but its too expensive compared to going off site. The buffet that they do a couple of times a week is worth trying but the ambience and feel on other nights... More

We ate at this hotel for breakfast. What a great buffet. And it overlooked the water too. Would suggest going there for, at least, breakfast.

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton and out of convenience we thought to try Arii Vahine. It was so great we came again! The food was delicious , the first time we had two fish dishes and chef even came out to see how it was! The second time we had one of the mahi mahi fish dishes... More

The crab bisque was so taste less and watery that I really thought they accidentally drop a pitcher of water in there. And there was no crab to be found in there. My husband ordered a medium stake and it came well done. I had the octopus curry that was advertised as spicy. It was so plain that I had... More

Great views, excellent food and good service. Steaks and salmon were excellent. Our server was also very good. But be prepared for sticker shock! Nothing is cheap in Moorea but this one is especially expensive!
