Terrific Pizza

My husband and I dined here on our last night in French Polynesia. It was one of several options recommended from our hotel. We dined here in the very late afternoon around 3:30 to 4:00 and we were treated very well, even though tables were being set up for a large group and we were not on the... read more

We stumbled into this restaurant after visiting the Wan Museum of Pearls. They were friendly and accommodating and sat us at a nice table by a fan. We noticed our neighbors were eating a fresh fish Ceviche that was not on the menu and we ordered that. It was FANTASTIC, with lime and sea salt and some of the freshest... More

First of all the boss Jo is a pro, he has been running this restaurant for 25 years. The restaurant serves an Italian food made of genuine products, everything is fully fresh, fishes of the day, excellent New Zealand, and American meats, always fresh pastas, pizzas served in a variety of sizes to satisfy each appetite. What else to say... More

The pizza is fine. Crispy crust. OK portion, but definitely not hearty. Nice dining room that is a little warm.

Slightly out of the centre of town (but very convenient if you're staying at Fare Suisse - see reviews) this Italian restaurant offers a varied menu including, good for us, a number of vegetarian dishes.

close to my B&B; right on main thoroughfare (Blvd. Pomare) They are very congenial hosts; the servers are almost always Tahitian, which makes the conversation fun. Great selection of pizzas on the menu.

We found this restaurant good value for money. Of course Tahitian food is cheaper, but if you need a break from fish, this is a great place. It's set up quite nicely - you feel like you're in a garden and the house wine wasn't bad either. The service was great and the food delicious. Very close to Fare-Suisse if... More

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

Had a great dinner here just before heading off to the airport, came in dragging our suitcases. Literally - the roller wheels blew out on both cases... Fun atmosphere with the gravel floor and tree's everywhere. The servers were wonderful, could not figure out what the dinner special was so we had a big salad and pizza. Homemade bread and... More
