Nice Atmosphere

This restaurant at the Hilton Moorea offers good food, nice presentation and a lovely oceanview setting. Like all Tahiti restaurants its very expensive.

Great views with friendly staff but the food was below average. The food looked amazing but lacked flavour - disappointing for a fairly expensive dinner.

We ate here once while staying at the Hilton Moorea. The entire meal was extremely below average. We ordered NY strip and red curry prawns. Both dishes were not fresh. The red curry prawns were dry and barely included any curry sauce. For the money, there's a lot better restaurants to eat at in Moorea. Highly recommend skipping this restaurant.

I had a set menu when I dined here - I had fish that was perfectly cooked and wonderfully presented. The desserts were out of this world - try anything with chocolate and you won't be sorry.

After much hesitation, due to the wide selection of restaurants located outside of the hotel property (that include free transportation), my wife and I reluctantly tried this restaurant. While the food itself was average, I would not recommend eating here. The value you get compared to those other places is much much less, with a price 20-30% more for the... More

Dinner: Liked; the scallop appetizer on a bed of whipped potatoes with relish. Curry shrimp dish. Very tasty but very tiny. Disliked: paper napkins, to-go butter packets, rotten mint in our mojito, the goat cheese salad had literally NO salad (maybe 4 small pieces of spring mix), mushroom risotto.. dirty mushrooms and flavorless, sticky risotto. Service was VERY slow and... More

First off, the food was pleasing to the palate and the selection for breakfast was exceptional. The omelette and waffle bar was also a nice touch, in addition to the fact that you could find nearly every imaginable juice and jam/jelly, cultivated on the island, during the breakfast buffet each morning. My husband was in love with the selection of... More

We ate here three times during our stay at the Hilton. We enjoyed the variety of dishes on the menu and were never bored unlike our stays at other hoels. We loved the fresh seafood and local dishes.
