Very close to the cruise ship terminal and situated very well in Papeete. Food was ok but doesn't live up to the exalted reviews and expectations. No view.

Actually it is very difficult to find nice restaurant in Papeete but this restaurant always provides the high quality plates and with reasonable price!! So if you haven't decided to eat yet, you can go there!!!

We asked for a taxi driver some tips to lunch in Papeete, and she drived to L'o a la bouche. The appetizer (salmon terrine) was awesome, and main courses also. We order for the dessert of the day, wich was an chocolate pie with vanilla ice cream. Wonderful. The place is small, but very warmful.

Had the best meal ever at this restaurant. We ate here 10 years ago on our honeymoon and it was great then. Service is excellent and the food is packed full of flavor. Prices are what you would expect in Tahiti. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

very disappointed. was our last stop before heading back home and comparing all restaurants we have eaten on the whole Polynesia trip this was the one with the most boring food and highest price (and comparing to Bora Bora prices this is actually quite hard to achieve) the atmosphere feels very cold (light and floor) bad service too (and it...

This place is around the block from the Cathedral and serves an absolutely delicious french meal. Go for the foie gras!

This is meant to be top quality French restaurant. The Mahi Mahi was great. But the sides were very average and the service was arrogant. Superficially friendly but we weren't convinced.

I had the risotto (too watery), my friend had the riz au veau (apparently excellent) and as dessert we shared a vacherin with a passion fruit creme. 4 stars for the dessert, 2 stars for the service (too pretentious for me) and 2 stars for the entree. given the high reviews I was expecting much more.. so overall not convinced...

l'o a la bouche is a excellent restaurant with french meals. Just in center of Papeete, in a small space, this restaurant offers the taste of France's gastronomy. Very nice presentation of plates, a good place to go

The restaurant is not the best setting so it's best for people to know, it's in a little street in Papeete, the setting of coco's restaurant is way better but the taxi ride is quite expensive as it's on the west coast and opposite of town. The foie gras was just perfectly made I had to order another portion, cause... More
