“It gets knocked down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

very easily by the restaurant Lotus at the same Intercontinental Hotel. Service, quality of food, professionalism of the staff, ... are rock bottom when you compare to Le Lotus.

“Open most of the time, the center meeting place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Food was pricey but good. Food was buffet style with food for all tourists. This was food that you would get at home. Service was slow but gracious. One must remember, Polynesia is laid back. This isn't Los Angeles! Tahitian drinks were awesome and service around the pool was great. This was the place for breakfast and the coffee was awesome ( very important for my picky wife). Nearby a gardener was cleaning a palm tree and my son asked if you can drink from the green coconuts. The Tahitian immediately climbed up to the top , picked a coconut , hacked the top of fetched a straw nearby and handed it to my little son with a big smile as if we known him forever. No charge by the way!

“Good not Great Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

All of Tahiti is way overpriced foodwise, so get used to it. The food was good not great and the price was expensive for Americans.
