No choice about food or drink, and the drive-up is questionable. But Louise's skill in the kitchen is not. After warmly welcoming us, Louise produced platters of grilled fish, lobster, sauteed shrimp, poisson cru, and rice. Each dish was incredible --- fresh, no question, but also subtly seasoned so that each dish had its own distinct nature. Delicieux.

Chez Louise is a must do when you stay on Le Taha'a! The food was awesome! And it is a family event, from getting picked up, to having your plates cleared by her grand children. The lobster was delicious!

Le Taha'a Island Resort where we were staying recommended Chez Louise - - unusual for me but I hadn't done any research on this and took the Hotel's recommendation in good faith but had no idea what to expect. Well my husband and I were certainly a bit taken a back when we first arrived, effectively at someone's home at... More

We were picked up in a 4 wheel drive truck by a nice lady who did not speak English and driven through VERY dark streets to Chez Louise. One of the wonderful things about staying at Le Tahaa was that they ARE happy to transport you across the lagoon anytime you want to go. ( The Four Seasons on Bora... More

Chez Louise is not fancy - wear bug spray. Louise is a super sweet lady who is very proud of food - and her flower garden (she was tickled to show us around). The driver comes in a beat up little car to get you - but never fear! She got us there and back perfectly safe. There is no... More

I have been here once with a dear friend who tagged along with me "Aro" - the safari overland tour guide! He was sweet enough to join me as I went solo on my vacation! I never had seafood so delicious in my life, I was so hungry that I dug right in and didnt even have a chance to... More

Call ahead for a great lobster, fish and shrimp dinner served with rice in a bamboo sleeve. Very basic, no frills but oh, so good.

If you're looking for a fine dining fancy restaurant, this isn't for you. I agree with some of the reviews - yes, a bit dingy. Maybe very dingy but if you're looking for a different experience, this is pretty neat. I think the food was very good - my husband loved it! They only serve one dish an evening -... More

During our 10-day honeymoon in French Polynesia, Chez Louise was undoubtedly the best and most authentic meal we had. It's a very local and casual atmosphere, and Louise serves the most fresh and tasty island food I've had. We stayed at the Le Taha'a Private Island and Spa and we elected to boat across the water not once, but twice... More

Chez Louise certainly offers a laid back admosphere, and if you enjoy fresh seafood it can't be beat. There is no menu, it is just "seafood" - providing four different seafood dishes to enjoy. They offer two kinds of wine - red and white, and don't take credit cards. We have been there twice over the years and each time... More
