Great Food and Entertainment

The standout was the stingrays and sharks that swim by the tables. This kept us entertained the whole service. The food was good as well and compared to the other places we visited the service was great as well.

Te Honu Iti is a great French restaurant located in Cook's Bay. They offer free pick up/drop off from your resort. Chef Roger and his two sons (Cristian and J-Pierre) were very friendly and attentive. They even offered us wifi while we waited for our food. They have about 8 tables on their patio where you can see the whole... More

Great food, excellent view of Cook's Bay. Also, they feed the sharks and rays off the back deck, so go early and get a spot on the rail to watch them swim while you eat!

This meal was absolutely amazing. The chef picked us up from our resort, and drove us home (talk about full-service!). We loved everything and it was such a special experience.

The place is old but the location is great! you can be eating right next to the water. Staff was good (they sure take their time though) but it's all about relaxing. As most other restaurants they will pick you up for free. Don't bother ordering chicken you are going to pay almost the same for Foie Gras. Losbter is... More

This restaurant is nothing special to look at but the food is caught & prepared daily. Everything we ate was delicious Again nothing fancy just great tasting food and the prices for Moorea were very reasonable.

The owner picked us up from our hotel, the Sofitel. He told us he had arrived in Moorea in 1974. He didn't seem to do the cooking anymore, but provided any information we needed. It was quite quiet the night we were there. I had been here ten years ago and remembered the patio on the water where you could... More

We planned on going elsewhere for dinner but needed reservations. We stopped here and the service right away was poor. Ordered wine/took awhile to get then he opens the wine and puts the cork with the wine opener on the table and leaves? Does not come back for a bit so we pour our own wine and put his wine... More

The French fare here is superb, the staff very helpful and friendly and the location is lovely, with a beautiful deck where you can see the rays being fed. We were staying at the Intercontinental about 25 kms away, but they still offered us free transport for the return home. Very hospitable
