The food was excellent (warm goat cheese salad!). The night air coming through the windows was enchanting. The staff was super attentive. Well done.

We had one night in Moorea and someone had recommended Rudy's. The restaurant has complimentary transportation, and I asked the driver what their top dishes were. He recommended both the moonfish and the crab-stuffed parrot fish, which my husband and I then ordered. FABULOUS!! We also enjoyed the escargot to start and a delicious pastry (?papaya?) for dessert. Rudy's dad... More

My husband and I thought this was the best restaurant we ate at in Moorea. Very romantic setting. The food was phenomenal!!!! I don't even remember what I ordered but it was delicious! That's all I have to say. ;) This place is a MUST TRY!

It's nice nice that they pick you up from the hotel. Service is horribly slow even for island time, this was more like plate tectonics, yes pun was intended. Food was the redeeming quality, nice selection, Moorea prices. Glad we went but would not go back

We arranged to go to Rudy's through the front desk of the Sofitel. Pick up and return was good. We took our 11 year old daughter. Because we brought her we were relegated to a back room away from any ambience (of which there was none anyway - very quiet time of year - Oct). The food was very good... More

First, let me say, I have very mixed emotions about this restaurant. My husband and I are not overly picky and we are typically fairly easy to please... I loved that Rudy's has free pick up from most hotels in Moorea. We ended up packing into a bus with 3 other couples. (He will not send a cab if there... More

Let me preface this review with a heads up not to judge the book by it's cover. Rudy's isn't on prime real estate in Moorea. As such, there are no awe inspiring views to speak of and the overall look and feel of the restaurant is very "mom and pop -ish". However, and it's a BIG HOWEVER, once you get... More

Rudy's is not sitting on the best setting of Moorea, but it surely has the best food in the island. We had the best poisson cru there, amazing prawn curry, pineapple tarte tatin, everything excellent. The bill is in line with the other upscale places in the island, so no surprises if you're already used to what the places cost.... More

My wife spent our first night out in Moorea at Rudy's and let's say the restaurant lives up to its excellent ratings! We were greeted immediately upon arrival (free transport from your resort btw) by the friendly owner and we instantly felt at home! The staff was very friendly and offered great recommendations. My wife had a perfectly prepared filet... More
