Food was overall very good and the service very friendly. However, I ordered a steak medium-well and what I got was a RARE steak. Not medium-rare, but RARE. Everything else was great, but this made a huge negative difference. After my meal I told the waitress about it, and she commented that people there like their steak rare so that's... More

we made the trip in from Faaa to have dinner here and were not disappointed. We had an excellent amuse-bouche with foie filled pasta followed by very good ravioli appetizer. Both the fish of the day and the filet with foie were excellent. Service was very good.Would recommend to anyone.

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
