Pleasant Dinner Surprise in Papeete

My wife and I decided we'd prefer to have dinner ashore on the last night of our Oceania - Marina cruise in March. Le Grillardin is only a 10 minute walk from where the ship docked and at first we weren't sure we were on the right street as it was a bit dark and did not look like there... read more

We chose this place according to the reviews here and were not disappointed. Although the restaurant opens at 7pm, we were warmly welcomed at 6:30 and offered drinks. We had the best Mojito and Mai Tai on Tahiti. The restaurant is very cosy with nice paintings, the tables are big and high enough for confortable dining. We ordered ravioli with... More

We were fortunate to have, not one, but two amazing meals at Le Grillardin during our trip (cruise on the Ocean Princess)! The first lunch was outstanding. Our group had duck (best ever), prawns, scallops and Fenua (island fish). The meals were perfect and we all enjoyed sharing a bite from each plate. The French Chardonnay was also an amazing... More

A wonderful restaurant with amazing food and great staff. Last night of our Tahiti trip, took a punt on a mid-week evening, cosy, fairly busy with great atmosphere, excellent service and beautiful food. Best meal of our trip and great value. Thank you Le Grillardin!

One of the greatest experience I've had so far. I have to say, I've been aiting for this moment to finally get a table at the Grillardin. You wanna eat at his restaurant, make sure you reserve way in advance. One day, my friends and I tried our luck as we were looking for a nice place to eat in... More

Food was good although not excellent. I had the "saumon des Dieux" in vanilla sauce. Fish a bit too cooked for me. Too bad. the combination with a vanilla sauce was original. I will try something else next time... Service is very attentive though. Cozy atmosphere. Location: in front of the city hall main entrance.

We found this restaurant by chance while staying overnight on the Queen Victoria. The food was delicious. Stella and her staff made us very welcome, thank you for making our visit to Papeete so memorable.
