Excellent Seafood

The seafood was really good and fresh. Just like most restaurants on the island, it is a bit pricey but well worth it.

It was a wonderful experience, they came to pick us up from our resort. Were greeted by Syd himself, very wonderful person. The restaurant is decorated very nice, it's a romantic little spot for couples. The food was to die for! loved it and I would for sure go back next time we're visiting Moorea. After we finished our wonderful... More

My husband and I went last night for dinner. We started with escargot and tuna carpaccio. I had the crab stuffed parrot fish and my husband had the filet. We also had the chocolate lava for desert. Great food and the service was the best. Rudy does the cooking and his father was our waiter. The place is small so... More

Service was good. We had moon fish. A little too well done. Portions were generous. Sauces on fish were nice and clearly fresh $200 US without drinks for 4

We had read about Rudy's on TA prior to our trip and heard several other couples talk about the Parrot Fish during our week at the Hilton. The Parrot Fish reviews are spot on! My wife had that meal and I sample it. We both thought it was delicious. I had the filet and was happy with the cut, but... More

We heard great things about Rudy's from locals as well as hotel guests and tried the restaurant at the very end of our trip. The ambiance is nothing to write home about however the food was wonderful as were the staff. We would definitely return.

Free transportation to and from our hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner of the establishment. He was extremely friendly and provided a wealth of history of the island if you let him. The food was outstanding and reasonable priced. It was by far one of the best meals we had on the island.

We made reservations at Rudy's for 5:45 p.m. on Valentine's Day. I suspect that time was earlier than they usually open, because we were the only guests in the restaurant when we arrived. Nevertheless, we were greeted warmly, given a window table with a water view (the bay is right across the street) and made to feel very welcome. Based... More

Everything on the menu was great, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The ambience is somewhat shabby for the prices, and no air-conditioning on a very balmy night. But we enjoyed the food, the company, the service, very good choice.
