We had dinner here one night. They offered free transportation to and from the hotel. The food was of good quality. I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the seafood ravioli with mahi mahi and lobster. You sit outside and can watch the sharks and sting rays as you dine. The owner came out and fed them after... More

The food was very French. I had a local fish, which was not that special. The mahi mahi and apple tart were good. There were only two other tables occupied at the restaurant so it lacked atmosphere. The feeding of the rays and sharks with scraps over the restaurant balcony was also not that conducive to creating a good atmosphere.... More

We had a wonderful waterside dinner experience and truly was the best meal we had on Moorea. We tried to balance eating at the Sofitel as well as off property and this was by far the best meal we experienced. The ingredients were all fresh and the quality of the meal was well done. While this isn't one of the... More

We had a marvelous waterside dinner on a quiet night. Chef Roger came and discussed our decisions after our order & I must say the seafood risotto I had exceeded expectations and the beef dish with champagne sauce my husband ordered (with the bonus gnocchi) was delicious. He checked in on us and we truly felt our feedback mattered. The... More

The staff at this restaurant were all nice and efficient. We enjoyed watching them feed the sharks. Unfortunately we thought the food was just ok (we each had the seafood risotto special for an entrée). My husband also had the French onion soup which he said was ok. We had ice cream for dessert and it was good. We did... More

Fourth visit over a two vacations 2013/2014 - out for dinner with a large family group of seven. The resto is beautifully positioned on Cook's Bay and makes a feature of having a public feeding of the rays and reef sharks. The service is generally attentive and efficient with a small, expensive (mind you, par for the course in Tahiti)... More

We ate here on our trip to Moorea and absolutely loved the food and atmosphere. We stayed at the Hilton and they picked us up for free. We had a table by the water and were able to watch the sharks and stingrays in the water. We both had the Risotto Special which was absolutely amazing. The chef came out... More

Food is good or better, but it's expensive and portion controlled, you're not taking anything home. Get a seat nearest the water so you can watch the rays, sharks and other fishies. Hey, for these prices a little entertainment is appropriate. In all honesty, the food is good and the service was excellent the night we were there. I had... More
