We just love Les Tipaniers. So much that we have returned almost every year for 15 years to celebrate our Anniversary dinner's there. The beach cafe is a wonderful place to relax at sunset on the beach followed by a wonderful romantic french style dinner. I can't say enough about this place. Highly recommended!

we were dropped here for lunch before going in a snorkelling trip with the stingrays and black-tipped reef sharks from the same beach. The food was very tasty though the service was so-so. I ate Poisson Cru here for the first time and was not disappointed.

We were recommended by the Intercontinental when we asked about outside dining options. The restaurant offers fixed time pick ups and were prompt. We very much enjoyed our dinner. My husband ordered lasagna which was good but not great. I ordered mahi with vanilla sauce which was excellent. For desert we tried a "local" specialty and I can not recall... More

This was one of the places recommended by Avis when we rented our car. By the way, the best way to see Moorea or Bora Bora is to rent a car. The air conditioned car with standard transmission will cost you around $130 to $140. Compare that to the cost fo a tour for two people. Les Tipaniers is right... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. The food was of average quality and price. It was very crowded but our waitress handled everything very well and we were pleased with the service. The view right on the crystal clear water was beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant for a good place to eat with a great view.

After drinks at La Plantation and finding that the restaurant to was entirely too hot to dine in...we bicycled to this little hotel/restaurant spot. There is a main dinner restaurant at the front of the hotel that is closed for lunch but they have a delightful beach cafe sitting right on the beach. The restaurant is open air and was... More

Ate here for dinner a few weeks a go in early September (2104). The ambience in the restaurant is pleasant, the menu is varied and the service is helpful, if a bit understaffed. The food was disappointing. My fish dish was over-sauced and my daughter's Caesar salad was all but inedible. The others had steak - OK to eat but... More

The food was nice, the service great, and the cocktails..wonderful. If we went again I would order a sauce with the Mahi Mahi, mike had the chiken and prawns and would recommend orcering a side...

The food is very good, especially for dinner. They fill-up quickly, the one night we called at 7:00 for a reservation they were already full up for the evening. The pizza, fish, and pastas are great. If I remember correctly, you can even get a pizza to go.

We went to the beach restaurant (not the Italian one by the road). We ordered the poisson cru, special burger, fish burger and cheese burger. Not the best food but hey it's Moorea. I give 3 stars though for the setting (very nice beach where you can relax and swim around), the property is well maintained and price wise, much... More
