“Average food, great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

The food is not extraordinary, just proper normal food. However, the view and the service is great. Very pricy place.

“Good food With a View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

This poolside, open-air restaurant is a nice casual place to get a bite for lunch. The burgers and pizzas were very good, as well as their salads and sandwiches. Service was fairly quick and servers were very friendly. Nice views as the pool is on one side of the restaurant and the lagoon is on the other side!

“Mediocre but beautiful view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

If you choose your food wisely, you can leave happy. If not, you will be really disappointed (and might end up sick as I did on one occasion).

Pros:
Beautiful View
Best food options – for lunch – raw fish in coconut/poisson cru a la tahitienne (quite tasty); brie, nut, ham panini/panini francese
Friendly staff

Cons:
Worst food options – for lunch – cheeseburger (artificial cheese (think kraft singles) is used on this super expensive cheeseburger; meat is dry and unseasoned; cheap ketchup; stay away from mayonnaise as on one occasion everyone got food poisoning from it)

The tapas bar at night has some good options, some average, and some terrible. As the menu isn't provided online, I cannot be more specific.

“Nice Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The food here is delicious and varied. All the tables also have a great view. Don't forget to get a bowl of the taro chips. Yum!
