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

During our stay at the Hilton Moorea we had a wonderful experience eating several dinners at the Toatea Crepes Bar. The Crepes are the best value for dinner at the hotel. The Crepes Bar is located centrally among the over-water bungalows with seating over looking part of the lagoon. This offers a unique and wonderful experience to watch the sharks... More

We were on of the last customers and it was a nice surprise when they switched off the lights when serving up our crepes with a whisky splash and litted fire on the crepe. Nice touch! Crepe is yummy and the whisky splash on top was generous wooh! :) The French chef is very nice and patient. Thumbs up. Only... More

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
