This was a great experience. Service was very good. The crepes were very good. They were rich in flavor. We usually eat a bit lighter fare so we only ate here once. It was fun to watch the sharks swim and then the feeding frenzy when food was tossed in the water.

We were recently in Moorea for our honeymoon and ate here almost every night. The atmosphere is peaceful and watching the sharks swim around (and even getting to feed them) during dinner was wonderful. We sampled a majority of the menu items, along with specials, and one was even more delicious than the last. Everyone working there is very nice...servers,... More

Absolutely a must, sitting down eating crepe,s watching the sharks and fish swimming beneath you whilst you a dinning, sharks fed between 7pm and 9 pm daily, so peaceful and relaxing. And the crepes are a must, ate there 3 nights and had a different one each time

I,m not big on crepes but this was excellent. Great choice of both dinner and dessert crepes. The restaurant is overwater so you can look down and see the black tipped sharks swimming below.

While staying at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort, we had a wonderful romantic dinner on the pier at the Toatea Crepes Restaurant and Bar. Watching the sand sharks feeding with the ocean breeze blowing, eating spiny lobster crepes, with a great drink - hard to beat. I highly recommend.

When staying at the Hilton Moorea, this is easily the best place to eat. Situated on the boardwalk and right on the water, the sharks swimming beneath you are fascinating to watch. The longer you sit, the more stars you will see. The crepes are excellent. "Captain Cook" was a favorite and be sure to leave room for a dessert... More

Yummy crepes, good friendly service, reasonable prices, and sharks! We stayed at the Hilton for 7 days and ate here 3 times. Such a great location amongst the OWB with a few sharks swimming underneath, and the sun setting in the background - very, very cool. The chef made a point of bringing us our crepes and chatted about where... More

The variety of the food was excellent. The crepes were very light and thin. And also crisp around the edges. The pinapple, ham and cheese was great. You can also watch the Black Tail sharks swim under and around the restaurant. Would highly recommend this establishment if you don't want a heavy meal, and you want to enjoy the local... More
