We were recommended to this restaurant for our last evening in Moorea, and wish we had found it earlier. Make a reservation - there are only limited tables, each lined up alongside the water and overlooking Cook's Bay. The stingrays come swimming right up to the dock by the tables, just to provide a little more ambiance (as if you... More

Went there on the recommendation of The Kaveka driver. I got the duck which was done medium but was still a bit tough. The potatoes were very good and they have stingrays off the back of the restaurant that we watched someone that works there feed. It was pretty cool to see the sting rays. Someone else got fish and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at the Sofitel Moorea. The restaurant provided the transportation to and from the resort. We ordered two of the specials: A coconut fish dish and a stuffed leg of lamb. Both were excellent; some of the best lamb I've ever had. The apple tart for dessert was made to order, served... More

Dinner here was amazing! The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. I had the "Filet de Papio" and my sister had the Beef Tenderloin, both cooked to perfection. Kudos to the Chef. Plus as you sat on the patio to eat u get to watch sting rays and sharks swim right up to the deck! Very enjoyable dining experience

We decide to go there for dinner. The food was excellent, we had the fish with the vanilla sauce and it was a delicacy. We had our 2 young children with us and the restaurant did not have a kids menu but they offered to make plates for the kids for a very reasonable price. The best part is our... More

We had the most incredible experience here at this restaurant. The food was amazing, after recently been to Europe- this was better still. Just incredible. The ambiance of this gorgeous little restaurant also just divine. Magnificent- Thank you Chez Roger, and your beautiful wife Suelin- and charming son. Just the best experience!

We ate dinner here before heading out the next day for a cruise. The restaurant offers free pick up and drop off for some hotels, we were at the Hilton and the chef was our driver. He recommended mahi with a lobster sauce and it was amazing. The French onion soup was good and bread was served prior to the... More

This restaurant is the bomb! It's run by a charming French chef, and the whole family is involved. Our party was picked up by the sons from the hotel we were staying at, thus began our culinary adventure. We ate at this restaurant a couple of weeks ago. We were seated outside on the veranda. As it grew dark, the... More
