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.

We visited them in 2008 for the first time and could not wait to get back again. Love the scenery, over water with sharkes and beautiful bungalows. Also Claude and his team is creating a memorable atmosphere with their hospitality. Finally the Crepes are great and good finish for the day in Paradise.

Located on the pier at the Hilton it was an ideal place for our 1st nights dinner in Tahiti. Crepes were good as well as the drinks. We enjoyed the evening even when we were trying to get out of the rain and wind.

Wonderful service, amazing savoury and sweet crepes like we've never seen before and all this in the most amazing location! And added interest was sharks circling in the water below! Amazing experience! Thanks Claude and team!

You wonder how they get the sharks to circle below the dinner tables, but it certainly adds interest, as do the over water bungalows around you. The crepes are good, though not fantastic. A bit disappointed that on both our visits items on the menu were not available. The bright, white table lamps are also rather killing the romance (we... More

My husband and I came here 4 times during our stay in an overwater bungalow at the Hilton Moorea. We tasted multiple savory crepes (carnivore, moana, eia auauahi) and sweet crepes (toatea, bounty). All crepes were not only excellent, but large portions as well. Claude, the head chef is very hospitable and greets new patrons. The ambiance could not get... More
