I walked past this restaurant at lunchtime and it was packed with customers. I walked past again at sunset and there were still people there. We went in for dinner and by the time we left there was not a spare table - and most seemed to be locals. That's a great endorsement! The place has atmosphere: under cover but... More

We throughly enjoyed the pizza here, but the restaurant was quite warm. All and all an expensive meal, but hey, the pizza was REALLY good.

They have a good selection of pizzas, reasonably priced, and a good menu of other Italian and Tahitian foods. Even though you sit indoors, it has an outdoor beer garden feeling, with gravel floors and open to the outside on either end. Lots... More

Located near the Temple of Paofai and the Paofai park. Can be really hot inside the restaurant. Service is OK and food too. Not the best nor the worst.

We loved the pizza and salad we ordered here. After spending time on the smaller islands, it was a relief to have some light, delicious food. It is bit of a walk from the cruise ship port area, but well worth it. The decor here was very cute too. I would go back again for sure.
