We stayed at the Hilton and went here for dinner one night. We sat at the bar and watched the chefs prepare the crepe. We ordered a dinner crepe and dessert crepe which were both filling and tasty. The sharks below were entertaining to see. A nice relaxing dinner compared to the tiki show.

We are addicted to the delight of dining at Toatea Creperie ! The tastes are splendid, the ambience is beautiful and Chef Claude along with his wonderfully charming staff complete the entire magnificent experience!! Our favorite crepe is the Miti ( a seafood Newburgh ) like no other we have experienced. Every morsel is sumptuous. For desert the crepe Suzette... More

We stayed at the Hilton and it was the best crepe I have ever eaten in my life. The chef is awesome and authentic to the recipes. A little pricey but worth it. Bring your appetite.

We've stayed 5 nights at the Hilton in Moorea and this is one of the few redeeming qualities it has going for it. We dined at the creperie one night after having drinks and watching Chef Daniel and another cook set up. Much care was taken in the preparation of each crepe and it was nice to see someone who...

My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at the Hilton Moorea in an overwater bungalow and, while the hotel is fantastic, our favorite aspect is the experience at Toatea. Nellie, our waitress, was great, and Claude, the chef was very friendly. The crepes are wonderful. The setting is perfectly romantic, laid back, and charming. Watching the... More

Just the other night we enjoyed great crepes and great service from Chef Claude and his staff. Set on the dock over bright blue Tahitian waters, this casual eatery serves up delicious savory and sweet crepes that are the perfect way to finish your day. As a bonus, black-tipped sharks circle below the restaurant; they're great to watch while you... More

This is a fun, fun place. Set over the water amongst the over-water-bungalows with the cool ocean breeze and the lagoon beneath you and all around you...with hip music playing, a cool large bar counter, and tables set around the bar. This place has it going. The crepes are absolutely amazing, the servers/cooks are playful and engaging, the cocktails are... More

We have tried savory and sweet crepes in this amazing restaurant and all of them were excellent. The stuffing was very good but the crepe itself was really exceptional, as well as the large portions. The attendants very polite and kind and the chef Claude top of the list. The landscape is incredible of course and the plus of eating... More

We had fun sitting with our bungalow neighbors for dinner one evening. Despite having eaten lunch that day we managed to each eat our own savory crepe for dinner but shared one for dessert. It was fun to watch the shark feeding. It was a reasonably priced dinner.
