Despite my reservation, it took them nearly an hour to bring me my food. And I had to quickly eat it to make it to my next destination on time. Despite that, the mahi mahi I ordered was cooked perfectly. And I would go back in a heartbeat. If you go, remember to make a reservation, bring francs, and allow... More

Enjoyed a visit to this eclectic restaurant on a sandy beachside lot under amazingly cool shade trees. Food was excellent. Local dogs hung out there and they were kinda fun.

We ate lunch here two times during our week long stay at Mo'orea. The food is great and the location is even better. Try to get one of the tables right on the water's edge, and watch the fish swimming right next to you. The service is also good. Don't miss out on eating here if you're visiting Mo'orea!

This was a beautiful open-air cafe on the lagoon. It has lots of shade for hot sunny days (and it protected us from the light rain when we were there. Excellent shrimp and fish.

The foods and the presentation to me is just so-so, but it seems a lot of people are happy with the food quality. I just can not believe they charge $1 U.S dollar for only 80 XFP, while the hotel offer $1 to 94 XFP. If you decide to go, make sure you have XFP.

Fresh seafood, great view, and relaxing ambiance. If you're traveling with someone who doesn't eat seafood, their menu includes burgers and other landfood options. That being said: I don't eat a lot of fish, but I loved their tuna carpaccio so much that I'm planning to dig into a plate of tuna sashimi today!

Stopped in at this place on the way on the way past and it ended up being worth the stop. I had the grilled mahi mahi with pepper sauce and it was delicious. Also, the view was wonderful, as we were seated right next to the water.

Excellent food with an even better view. The menu features well priced seafood, sandwiches, and desserts right on the water with a large tree for shade

Enjoyed fresh fish here. While we dined they brought in a large tuna freshly caught. Table right on the water. Not a fancy place but food was very good. Your can walk from the Intercontinental Hotel.
