Believe the hype.

We really enjoyed our meal at Rudy's. We had the house special, and it was fantastic. I recommend an early sitting as the restaurant emptied out around 8pm.

Rudy's had the best food and service combined we experience in our entire trip to Moorea. The staff spoke English pretty well so this was one of the few places we didn't have any communication issues at all. It was not really a fancy place so you don't need to dress up to go here. I usually wore a dress... More

Just finished dinner with friends at Rudy's and it is an amazing experience! The staff is friendly and personable, and the dinning room was intimate. The stuffed parrot fish is as good as everyone else's review (delicious creamy sauce with a soft flaky fish; stuffed with scrumptious crab). The opah (moonfish) had a different stock based sauce, and was also... More

We had our first meal in Moorea here, and took the recommendation of our condo to eat here. I had the moon fish and my husband had the parrot fish and both were absolutely delicious! I would certainly go back the next time that we are in Moorea! They provided us free transportation from our hotel, which was a bonus... More

Pick up, service and food were all very good but not as great as some others said. Moon fish had a lovely sauce and green beans and a couple of carrot coins and rice.The pork shoulder had good flavor but a bit tough. Another patron had parrot fish she said was excellent.

In our 4 weeks on Moorea we went 3 times to Rudy's. Looking back, I think every order of every member of our parties was for one of the fish dishes. We had a bottle of the modestly (for Moorea) priced wine each time. Booze here is approximately like buying it in Oslo. No air conditioning but if you are... More

Restaurants are a bit scarce on Moorea and most people tend to eat at the hotel where they are staying. We were at the Hilton Lagoon Resort on Moorea for several days and looking for some place nearby for a change from hotel food -- which was decent but limited in range. Rudys had been recommended to us by several... More

This is a cozy and casual restaurant where you will receive a warm welcome from the own and be served by gracious staff. The food was delicious and fresh. I had the parrot fish that they are renowned for and it was delicious. I will have to go back and try the many other enticing choices. You won't be disappointed.... More

The reviews on TripAdvisor about Rudy's were very good so we went to the concierge desk to make reservations but to our surprise the restaurant does not pick you up from the hotel for free unless they have 6 people going to the restaurant, which they did not have at the time we made reservations. My wife and I were... More

Rudy's was our FAVORITE meal in Moorea outside of our hotel. The restaurant picked all 9 of us up on short notice (during high season!) and the experience from start to finish was awesome. We met Rudy and half our party, at his recommendation, ordered the parrot fish. Most of us wanted to lick our plates, but there were other... More
