The Viking crepe was great (salmon, lemon, dill, and cream cheese). The deserts were great too! The Normandy was our favorite... read more

Toatea serves savory and sweet crepes with a large selection. The kids menu is particularly good since the kids get one savory AND one sweet crepe and the crepes was basically the same size as the adult ones. Sharks swim below the restaurant and they let my kids feed them fresh fish. Only negative I can say about this restaurant... More

Not wanting to swim with sharks, we decided to dine with them. Although we were staying at a different resort and we arrived at the Toatea without reservations, we were seated promptly and courteously. We ordered drinks (great Mojitos) and crepes. The Seafood Crepe was divine....one of those rare food experiences where the memory is as good as the actuality.... More

Ordered ceviche while sitting on the beach and I found this place had probably the best I've ever had. Also had the Mahi sandwich was unbelievable. We rarely eat at the same restaurant twice when we travel because we like to try many places but I might get this lunch again lol

This was our best meal during our holiday in French Polynesia. The crepe are delicious and we returned here and it was every bit as good and subsequent visit. The Sharks swimming under the restaurant are fascinating and beautiful to watch. If you are visiting Moorea it is a " must " to visit and dine

Neat location!!!! Friendly people and unique concept. Crepes looked great but we did not eat there! We enjoyed the bar area and drinks. Crepes only a limited offering. The lighting too bright and harsh to be super romantic. Ambience so close to great....but something lacking. Didn't want to return fir some reason.

This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. The first thing is that you have to make a booking and then just enjoy your evening. They are closed on certain days. The Carnivore is really great and also the Seafood one. Honestly one of the places that you have to eat when you are staying in the Hilton. It... More

The crepes at Toatea are delicious! They offer a variety of crepes-- from seafood to meat to goat cheese to strawberry. I recommend making a reservation at Toatea and requesting a table near the sharks, that way you can watch the sharks get fed and get some good photos. Also, you can sit at the bar and watch the chef... More

We ate here three times for four reasons: delicious crepes, good prices, very nice location, and convenient and fast at the end of a busy day when the las thing you want to do is go out to dinner. Felt like eating in our backyard. One night the main chef was working and he was very friendly and attentive. The... More
