One of our bet meals by far

Absolutely delicious, the staff are also very welcoming and attend your every need. Sebastian especially and Claire are wonderful and friendly. The food is top notch! Make sure you ask two days in advance for a reservation so they can play for you.

Decent eating, but that is all it was. Kinda pricey too. It's a part of a kinda fancy hotel, so I guess they don't have to go way up on the standards. A quick tip to whoever makes the drinks... Stick to the recipe. Adding an extra shot of booze doesn't make a drink better. If I wanted a vodka... More

This is a smaller boutique resort, while menu is limited for dinner, it was excellent and plentiful three-course meal. Continental buffet breakfast was very good. Excellent lunches at outdoor restaurant included wonderful poisson cru, variety of freshly made sandwiches with sides.

Awesome experience! Great family run pension that you'd almost swear was owned and run by some name brand resort! AMAZING PLACE! If you want great quality in a pension on Fakarava this place is it! They even have their very own private pearl farm and lotteries for free black pearls!

The fish were always caught fresh from that morning. The presentation is remarkable, as well as the staff serving. The tables are beautifully decorated with flowers from the island, and the big dinning room makes for a very nice ambiance. I was very impressed and will certainly be going back

We had a couple of lunches here as we were staying elsewhere. It is a lovely spot on the beach and food was pretty good but standard Polynesian fare. We tried the main restaurant one evening but you have to pre-book so we were turned away but luckily found one of the snack places in town open.

Best food I ever had in French Polynesia, even better than star hotels! Worthy of money! Its appetizers like Tuna sashimi or muscle of oyster are highly recommended!
