we were picked up by the restaurant. We're greeted at the door by the owner. Once we sat at the table he immediately guaranteed that all the fishes are freshly caught during the day. We had wahoo and saulmon de dieu. They are very tasty, though very tiny bit of vegetable. I observed that that the staffs are very efficient.... More

Rudy's has been a favorite and is located in a good area with easy access and parking. It is one of the few restaurants that has maintained consistency in Maharepa and the food is very good with plenty of it! we really enjoyed the owner and his presence and the staff seemed to really enjoy the place.

Our first night in Moorea we came for dinner at Rudy's. We enjoyed our meal so much that first night that it was the only place in Moorea we revisited for another meal! Rudy's poisson cru is hands down the best poisson cru we had the ENTIRE time we were in the Society Islands. The parrotfish specialty is also out... More

We came to Moorea for our honeymoon and dined at Rudy's twice because our first experience was great! When we arrived at the restaurant (their van picked us up from our hotel) we were greeted warmly by Syd, the owner's father. Syd was very friendly and professional, and made us feel like valued customers. He ran through the menu with... More

To the people that said the place is average, what do you expect on Moorea?! If the fish is good, the service is good and the price is good. Then go back! We certainly did. Syd was very friendly and explained much to us about the local fish economy and how he sources fish every day. The decor is simple,... More

Atmosphere is nothing special and the food is generally OK - nice to have some escargots. One waiter came across as a bit surly but the owner was friendly enough. People bussed in continually from around the island every 15-30 minutes- I think there is a time slot depending on which hotel you are staying at.

We booked from the Sofitel and were picked up by a young Tahitian woman. One other couple from the hotel also came. The host, rudy's father I believe, was very welcoming, the perfect host. My wife had snails for an entree and I had a salad. Both of which were very good. My main of Wahoo was underwhelming, but my... More

The food at Rudy's is great and the service was excellent. My husband and I had a great evening - I got the moon fish special and my husband got some kind of seafood casserole. The atmosphere is nothing special and it is pricey (as is everywhere else on the island) but overall we enjoyed our time at Rudy's and... More
