What can I say that hasn't been famously said. The parrot fish stuffed with crab did not disappoint. The restaurant was a little warm, and the service a bit slow. But that's to be expected on an island vacation. I was going to have the steak, but Sid made me see the light. The parrot fish was lovely. It truly... More

We visited Rudy's during our 5 days stay on Moorea. The food was excellent. Half the family had the Parrotfish which the raved about for several days. We all thought the staff was great and service excellent.

I loved the authentic french onion soup! They pick up and shuttle back from any hotel in Moorea. Definately on my list of recommendations. The lobster was yum.

The house specialty, the parrot fish stuffed with crab, is not to be missed! That is a first class meal.

The restaurant is very "tired" needing much TLC to bring it up to a reasonable standard which we expected. The wait staff were poor, we waited a long time to even get our menus, very poor menu with few description of the food not helped by the waiter who had a very off-handed attitude. The wine list was disappointingly small... More

Went here during honeymoon in Moorea based on all the good reviews. First off, the food was very good. This was shocking based on the fact that the restaurant itself is quite run down and appeared to be connected to an insurance agency. There was no air conditioning, which made dinner quite miserable with 100% humidity. Service was on the... More

Not as good as other restaurants in the area but still enjoyable. Very busy and good fish but would not visit again. Seating and ambiance could be improved and service was not great.

RUDY'S is by far the best restaurant on the Island. We went 3 times in our 10 day stay! First night we got the steaks and they were incredible. the tuna tar tar is simply the best! But the entree that we kept coming back for was the crab stuffed parrot fish. It was divine. Could not have had a... More
