Wonderful service, friendly staff, very helpful. Food was fabulous, lots of different crepes to choose from, each with a Tahitian twist. Lovely environment -watching small sharks swim under jetty that the restaurant sits on.

We ate three times at Toatea while staying at the Hilton. Selection of crepes was extensive and the seafood ones were very good, although the portion sizes are quite large, probably aimed at the large American market. Sharks swim around under the restaurant which is out over the water and provide great views of them. Service was very good and... More

The place is located in between the overwater bungalows, so quite and cozy, an open space between the kitchen and the tables allow you to have a perfect view over the clear cristal water full of reef fishes and black tip sharks. As soon as you seat the waitress brings you the menu with a charming welcoming, in few minutes... More

Even if you think that you don't like crêpes, that will make you change your mind. The settings are a dream (wooden pontoon with bar over shallow water with sharks swimming underneath), the service very friendly and you can watch your food being cooked too. Of course it's expensive, just like everything else in a Hiton hotel, but the servings... More

My wife and I visited Moorea for 5 days and were coming from the States. Therefore, you know how good restaurants do it in the U.S: great with attention to detail, great service, good food and a great value. This place is located in the Hilton. We were not guests at the Hilton, but still allowed to eat here for... More

The perfect breeze, simple setting, the context to a religious experience. Never thought I would develop a passion for crepes, but I did! My wife just wanted to eat here all the time. We came 4 times in 5 days. Crepes for main dish and then sweet crepes for dessert. I'll tell you the secret, they do it with love.... More

After reading great reviews of this restaurant, we wanted to try it. We took a cab from the Intercontinental to the Hilton ($40 each way) and also got to walk around the grounds. The food was delicious. Both savoury and sweet crepes were good (we had banana nutella, how can you go wrong). If you are staying in the area,... More

This charming all-outside Creperie sits over the water at the Hilton Moorea Resort. The crepes are original and huge! I had the scallop and sweet potato crepe; when it came it was about 9"x9" square! The chef makes large round crepes, puts the ingredients in the middle and then folds the sides into the middle. My husband had the ham... More

We walked by 2 nights in a row from our room at the hilton. Guests enjoy expensive crepes while black finish sharks wait for fish scraps. The chef is happy to modify your order. A unique experience with the most uncomfortable chairs u could imagine.

We ate here several times because I love crepes. The portions are big and the sharks swim underneath you every night around 8 pm.
