This restaurant is located on the beach with views of the ocean - and serves a good variety of lunches - caesar salad not the best but other item choices were very good. Great place to sit and have a cocktail.

This is our second visit to the Hilton. We stayed a week this time and ate everyday for lunch here. The servers are so friendly and the food is great. We had enough food each time to share. They are generous with the amounts to share. Majority of the time they had it separated on plates for us. The view... More

Because we stayed at the Hilton, our selection for lunch was rather limited. We ate at this grill a couple times and though the offerings are okay, though the service was somewhat slow. As most everywhere else at the resort, a cheeseburger will cost you around $30.00 - $35.00 USD. I ordered a Caesar Salad (around $30.00 USD) with grilled... More

The food is not extraordinary, just proper normal food. However, the view and the service is great. Very pricy place.

This poolside, open-air restaurant is a nice casual place to get a bite for lunch. The burgers and pizzas were very good, as well as their salads and sandwiches. Service was fairly quick and servers were very friendly. Nice views as the pool is on one side of the restaurant and the lagoon is on the other side!

If you choose your food wisely, you can leave happy. If not, you will be really disappointed (and might end up sick as I did on one occasion). Pros: Beautiful View Best food options – for lunch – raw fish in coconut/poisson cru a la tahitienne (quite tasty); brie, nut, ham panini/panini francese Friendly staff Cons: Worst food options –...

The food here is delicious and varied. All the tables also have a great view. Don't forget to get a bowl of the taro chips. Yum!
