Great service, good food

The food here was good, except for the deserts. We liked the service and especially the seafood. Everything was fresh and that made a huge difference. Prices were reasonable for FP.

We came here for one of our last dinners on the island. The owner greeted us at the door and was very nice. I ordered the tuna carpacccio and the scallops, both were absolutely amazingly fresh! My husband ordered the soup and parrot fish. The soup was very good and the fish was amazing. Next time I'll be getting the... More

We made the mistake and ordered the beef because we aren't big fish eaters. It wasn't very good and went back to the hotel and ordered room service. Perhaps this place gets its rave reviews from the fish and the service. The service was outstanding and they were extremely friendly. The atmosphere is small, quiet, and hot with quite a... More

We can now see why Rudy's is top rated in moorea, it is everything the other restaurants are not on this island, exceptional food, great friendly service and all at a reasonable cost, meal was half the price of Moorea cafe, better quality and we ordered more

Rudy's a small but nice local restaurant. Service was excellent and food was good but a little pricey.

We had a fabulous dinner with a warm reception. Beautiful fish dinner in a very unassuming atmosphere We were picked up and returned to the Sofitel which was a great bonus!

Nice local type restaurant that serves excellent dishes. I had the scallops and my wife had the legendary parrot fish, both were well presented and tasty, with sides of vegetables. They also have great steaks, as reported by others that I talked to who went there from the Hilton. Service was excellent and attentive. We drove to Rudi's from the... More

I don't know why this wasn't one of the first places that the concierge suggested. Everyone kept talking about the Mayflower, but I thought Rudy's was far superior to the Mayflower. We got the parrot fish and Mahi Mahi. The parrot fish melts in your mouth. I wish we would have gone earlier in the trip because we would have... More

Decided to go to Rudy's months in advance since the reviews were fairly positive about them. Food quality was average, service was horrible, and prices were steep. All in all, would not recommend it. My fiancee had a surprise for me the next day at Arii Vahine restaurant in the Hilton Moorea and the food was soooooo much better!!!Granted the... More
