“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The crepes are Devine! Both savory and sweet! Quite filling tho, so when we're very hungry we shared. Service was good. The sharks came in and swam beneath the restaurant most nights which was fascinating!

“Great bar/creppe place in Hilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Creppes and drinks are excellent. And you can enjoy them while looking at sharks that come around at night.

“Crepes and sharks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Situated next to the OWBs at the Hilton, this restaurant serves the best Breton-style crepes in French Polynesia. As an added bonus, your table has a close-up view of the black tip reef sharks as they cruise under the restaurant looking for table scraps. This 'floor show' is enough to distract you from the slow service but not enough to soften the sting of an expensive bill for an evening of light fare. Still, it is worth at least one visit...the sharks will thank you.

“Great setting - Sharks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The choice of crepes is fantastic. There are both savory and sweet - all very creative. Everything I tasted there was perfect. Especially good was the Normandy apple crepe with caramel! The sharks show up at night and just circle and circle right below you.

“Worth a visit for the show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This place is worth a visit for the spectacular setting located on the boardwalk at the Hilton. With the lagoon below lit up at night you can see the reef sharks and brightly coloured fish cruising by as you enjoy your meal - quite a show!

And the crepes and cocktails are pretty good too!
