Great Dinner - Nice French Restaurant

Good food, great service and excellent wines. Short taxi 8 min from the port - can be walked - straight ahead on Rue Prince Hinoi. Nice people and covers are approx $22 USD.

I like talking to the chef and the owner, there is not a problem to express one's opinion and be "at home" with friends in this place.

If you wish to taste French good food from Lyon in Papeete this is the place to go. Food is exceptionnal and prices Ok, good service, and classy customers. A place to go where you would not go by yourself as it is very discreet.
