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

We booked a table for the evening, where the restaurant moves to the front of the hotel. We were offered the courtesy bus but declined. 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

I had the scallops and rice and it was covered in the best sauce I have ever had. My wife had the lasagna and she liked hers as well. Also the water they served us was absolutely amazing. We had grown used to drinking mildly cold water but the water they served us here out of the bottle was ice... More

Our driver from the dock to the Intercontinental recommended Snack Mahana and Les Tipaniers on the beach. I'm so glad we walked here (about 20min from IC). This is located behind the hotel on the beach with a beautiful view and breeze. The poisson cru appetizer set me up for the whole trip. It was a large generous portion with... More

We rented a car to drive around Moorea. I had been to Moorea 30 years ago and have to say that Les Tipaniers did not disappoint. It was a good place in 1985 and better now. Its a lovely property (well maintained property) and we had a delicious lunch. We spent a couple hours swimming off their beach and continued... More

Title of my review says it all. If it's busy they're very understaffed. If they're not busy you may be fine.

We spent a few nights at the Intercontinental in Moorea and there was no way we would travel all the way to French Polynesia and eat at an Intercontinental. So, we spend time on Trip Advisor and put this place on our must-do list. Glad we did. We had so much wonderful food on this trip but, as far as... More

Just returned from our fourth trip to Moorea. During our 11 days, we dined at Les Tipaniers 3 times and enjoyed each experience very much. The staff was joyful, service was friendly, restaurant was attractive, and food was very good. We enjoyed Tuesdays at Les Tipaners with Ron Falconer's music.
