We were warmly welcomed, in French but we answered back in English, from then on - all conversation was in English. We were helped with the menu, given useful, and thoughtful advise about choosing what to eat, the host/hostess were gracious and charming... thank you for a lovely meal

Rudy's was a bit of a trek from the IC. They do free pick up when there are 6 or more so if there is no pick up one night just try another day. We had the parrot fish stuffed with crab and the seafood spaghetti in a tomato sauce, both were amazing. Dessert we tried the chocolate lava cake... More

Get the Parrot Fish stuffed with Crab. Yum. Very good. Food was great and Rudy is a nice guy who will lend some of his charm to make your evening even better. The Creme Brulee was also excellent.

We had heard a lot about this restaurant. Yes, they do pick up at the Hilton which was great. The restaurant is at a nice location and it felt very friendly. We stayed away from the meat choices but went with the local fish and were not disappointed. On top of that prices were not overly expensive, so over all... More

We went to Rudy's our first night on Moorea and had a lovely experience! Rudy himself greeted us and gave us his recommendations. The restaurant is known for a crab-stuffed parrotfish. My husband ordered it and it was GREAT but RICH (I'd recommend sharing it and getting something else!). It was a fun experience and the food was great. The... More

We ate here on our recent trip to Moorea. We stayed at the Hilton and the restaurant picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel for free. They had a varied menu that was split between fish and meat dishes. The owner was super friendly talking to everyone and told us that all of the fish is local... More

We arrived to a very welcome greeting from the the owner. A great touch. We sat down and looked at the menu. Oh my, what a selection to choose from. The food looked fantastic. It was a quiet night, but it doesn't impact on your night at all. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. I had the raw... More

Really great experience. Rudy’s restaurant has intimacy and warmth. The attention from the owner was genuine and welcoming. The menu is French with a number of dishes that honor the local bounty from the sea. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the seafood pasta. The pasta was fabulous! The rack of lamb was quite good, too.... More

We had read great reviews of Rudy's and thought we would give it a try. We were in the mood for a good piece of meat. The Sofitel, where we were staying, has some sort of disagreement going on with Rudy's, so they will not allow the restaurant to pick guests up down at the lobby, but rather at the... More

For me this place reserves the first place on the island of Moreea. The food is simply delicious, the prices are not so high so in other places and the service is very good.
