We ate dinner at this restaurant twice during our stay. During our stay when an adult orders from the main menu the children eat free from the children's menu. The children's menu had good selection. I ordered the mushroom risotto and it was delicious, cooked perfect! My kids ordered pasta bolognese and chicken Cordon Bleu. i was quite envious of... More

We ate breakfast here two of the days we stayed. Do not, I repeat do not do the buffet. The food in the heated trays is under-cooked. Eggs are literally soggy, bacon soft, etc. My husband even complained the eggs benedict was inedible. There are flies everywhere on the fruit/pastries and other hotels we stayed in including the Intercontinental Tahiti... More

Great service and great food. It is on the pricier side of places we ate on the island. But the food is fresh and delicious. Well worth it!

We ordered fish of the day and the tube. The latter was requested rare, but it was overdone and nut at all tarry. Our view - Food is passable only, and seriously overpriced. Avoid the"black pearl", dessert!

I stayed in Hilton Moorea for a week. Overall, food at Arii Vahini was very good. I had two dinners there and every breakfast (HHonors Gold- so free breakfast). People were friendly, but slow overall. It took me and my wife 20 minutes to order our entree on one dinner service. After dinner, another 10 minutes before our server came... More

We stayed at the Hilton and it was nice to have a night "in." We sat at a table on the edge of the patio, which is lit by tiki torch. The restaurant overlooks the beach. The service was fantastic. The food was excellent too - our second best meal in Moorea. I was excited to see a tofu/vegetable dish... More

We had breakfast here that luckily was included in our room rate. The price was close to $40 per person. No one can eat $40 worth of breakfast food. I didn't see cavier or every fresh fish. Beyond the price, the selections were good. The jelly station was very fun. So many kinds and they looked homemade. If it comes... More

This restaurant is overpriced, the food is very average for the price, staff needs trainning. Dinned Saturday night for Polynesian buffet which I found quite disappointing, seafood was not fresh and service was poor.

We stayed at the Hilton and were so glad we stayed on site for dinner one night. My husband's steak was delicious. I had a tofu dish (also gluten free) that was flavorful and fresh. They serve bread with dinner (including gluten free biscuits! make sure to ask for them :) (this helps, as food is so expensive!). For dessert,... More
