C'est Magnifique!

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... read 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.

We have eaten at the restaurant Le Grillardin with Chef Christian for many years. Every time that we are back in Papeete, we visit the restaurant and never has been disappointed. The magret du canard is superb and also they offer great desserts.
