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.

Excelent service and delicious food, congrats to the chefs. They fed the sharks and the rayas for you to see them closer. It was an amazing night, it makes you feel in home

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.

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.
