We stopped in since Tripadvisor had this place as one of the highest reviewed locations for food in Moorea. The owner was snarky and rude to us when we stopped into this place for a second dinner. The highly parrotfish dish was nothing to write home about and the creme brulee was mediocre. I've had better French food in San... More

My wife and I both enjoyed our meals and would've gone back if we'd have an extra night in Moorea. I've never had moon fish so it was a first for me and thought it was good. My wife had the stuffed parrot fish and loved it. The service was good and it's nice that they'll pick you up and... More

Neat local experience for quite dining with rustic ambiance. This dining experience was a pleasant surprise. We were a little hesitant with the small building and smaller parking lot. But after all was done, so glad we tried Rudy's. The food was better than some of the more expensive restaurants we tried in Bora Bora.. The daily menu was mostly... More

This restaurant was quite the surprise. Classic French food in a casual type setting. Our dinner the previous night was at the famous Jean George's Lagoon restaurant at the st regis bora bora. The view at Rudys does not compare to bora bora, but the food at Rudys was much better. My husband had the moon fish as his entree... More

We tried our first taste of raw tuna in coconut milk here. It was ok but very salty. When asked for a meal suggestion we were told the stuffed parrot fish is the specialty. It was amazing. Best fish dish of our 14 day trip. The servers were extremely friendly. It had been raining earlier & the waitress offered to... More

The food and service were great from picking us up at our hotel, at our table and then back to the hotel. We were seated in the front room with the bar and entrance which was a noisy place to be. If I were to go back, I would ask to be seated in another room. The food makes a... More

We had read the reviews on TripAdvisor, and also heard rave reviews from other couples at the resort, so naturally we were eager to try Rudy's - it did not disappoint! Very quaint and relaxed atmosphere, nice choice of beers and wine, and great service. My husband had the stuffed parrot fish, which certainly lived up to its popularity -... More

We had the crab stuffed parrotfish which was very buttery and light ... but I preferred the Swordfish which was so tender it separated with your fork and melted in your mouth. Outstanding. Very nice ambience in the small restaurant, greeted at the door by Rudy's father, Rudy is in the chef in the kitchen. Unfortunately they were out of... More

The atmosphere and staff were great along with the parrotfish. The owner was in the restuarant and was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. They were not pushy to get you through the meal but allowed one to take your time and enjoy the experience. Free shuttle from resort which was very nice.
