Crepes and MaiTai's

The crepes at the restaurant were delicious and had great variety to choose from. The Mai Tai's were delicious. It was great to sit and watch the sharks swim below you as the the restaurant is located over the water by the bungalows

My husband and I ate dinner at Toatea two times during our vacation on Moorea. The crepes were excellent and we loved the atmosphere. There really is nothing like watching the sharks swim under you throughout your entire meal! The only downside was I ordered a goat cheese, honey and pinenut crepe for dinner the second time we ate there.... More

I had heard many feedback about this place, but never got the chance to go until last weekend. Because of Easter, it was very busy and so the service was slow but apart from that we had a really nice time. Simple crepes are a bit overpriced in my opinion but the specials are definitely worth. There is also a... More

The Mona Mona Crêpe was excellent and meeting Gerard alone was worth the walk out to the lovely over-the-water bar. We went back the next night, but the Suzette was not as good. If you're staying at the resort do go, but keep it simple.

We had read many positive reviews about the the Crepes bar, but my wife was still a little apprehensive about have crepes for dinner. After the first bit, she wasn't apprehensive any longer. We actually had three dinners here during the week and the food was great each time. The last night we had a nice chat with the Chef... More

A very good alternative to the other restaurant at the Hilton. I always thought crepes were supposed to be cheap, but these were not. Having said that, they were pretty much perfect. Great location with sharks and rays swimming below.

Tried a few different ones. All pretty good, although Captain cook was the best. Price was reasonable as well

We were staying at the Hilton in a bungalow, so we passed this place every time we went to our room. When we finally decided to check it out, it was a wonderful experience. From our seat we could see the sharks and fish and even got to see the staff feed the sharks while we drank our cocktails. I... More

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
