Very good meal + Shark Feeding

We ate dinner here on our Tahitian Honeymoon. We arranged the reservations and shuttle at the Hilton Moorea desk and took the complementary shuttle to/from dinner. We didn't know ahead of time that they have local sharks they feed during the evening so it was a nice little surprise for us... read more

Chef Roger came and picked us up for dinner. He took us to his retarant which is in Cook's Bay on the island of Morrea. The food was phenomonal and the service was impeccable. The whole family works and runs the restaraunt. The bonus was feeding the sharks and sting rays after we had our dinner. Truly a migical island... More

Chef Roger came and picked us up personally at the Hilton and brought us to his wonderfully quaint restaurant on Cook's Bay. There are only a couple of tables outside and we really enjoyed watching the sharks and sting rays. The menu is classic french. Old school french and Fabulous. I had the quenelles which I was shocked to find... More

One of the best meals my Husband and I had on the island. We were lucky to have Chef Roger as our waiter too since we went on a week night. We sat right at water and there were probably 10 HUGE sting rays + 6 black tip sharks swimming around. So cool to watch as we ate one of... More

Lovely outdoor setting and friendly wait staff. While sitting at your table you will see stingrays and sharks. Dinner was excellent and had a nice wine selection. The filet mignon in champagne sauce was exceptional. The shrimp ravioli was also excellent. I would recommend Te Honu Itin!

Had dinner here based upon a recommendation from a couple also on their honeymoon. The food is out of this world. The chef/owner was our server and he was the nicest ever. To top off the great experience my wife and I had we got to enjoy the sharks being fed tableside.

Had a fantastic time at Te Honu Iti when we visited here on our honeymoon in January. We were staying at the Hilton. Te Honu Iti came & picked us up from the Hilton, to the restaurant, and then home again in a nice air conditioned mini van (bonus). We were here for dinner & the owner spoke with us... More
