“Not just a tourist trap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

One of the best meals of the trip was had here. Actually a pasta dish, although the parrotfish was also very good. The host (must be Rudy) was humorous although he hovered a bit.

“Great experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Recommended by travel agent, couldn't have been more pleased. Great experience from hotel pickup to drop off. Atmosphere, hosts, and food were fantastic. I Had Parrot Fish special, and it was delicious. My wife had the filet and she did not leave hungry. Would visit again if lucky enough to get back to Moorea.

“3 nights in a week!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed at the Hilton Resort on Moorea and were keen to eat out as part of our Morea experience. Rudy's was well rated on TripAdvisor so we booked via the hotel's concierge service, utilising Rudy's return complimentary transport service. Our evening went really well and the Parrotfish was superb so we decided to go again a couple of nights later. Rudy's father, the maitre d', was back from a short break away and he is a fantastic host. We discovered that Rudy is the chef and I decided to go for the Filet of Beef au Shallots. The steak was cooked to perfection and we had such a fantastic evening we decided to eat at Rudy's for a third time, our last night on Moorea, and again left feeling totally satisfied. Ok, the wine list is a tad limited but in the scheme of things that didn't detract from an all round top notch dining experience.

“Best restaurant in Moorea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

My now husband and I honeymooned in Bora Bora and then Moorea. We enjoyed them both and loved most of the amazing restaurants and food selections. We STILL talk about our experience at Rudy's. It was absolutely our favorite restaurant on the island. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it was delicious and more of an upscale experience than others. We had the parrot fish and the seafood caserol dish as our mail meals. They were both PErfEct choices! If we had the opportunity to return we would get that exact meal again. Many other couples at the resort said Rudy's was their favorite restaurant as well. This is a definite can't miss restaurant!! The staff was very relatable and kind. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with our meal and a delicious desert. A truly memorable meal and experience.

“A lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great meal made even more enjoyable by the superb family hosts. I was blown away by the parrotfish, which was moist and delicious. Starters and desserts were very good too. Wine list didn't quite keep up with the menu, but this was a minor flaw. Everyone in neighbouring tables seemed to be enjoying just as much as we did. Visit Rudy's for very good food and genuine welcoming atmosphere. Like most restaurants on Moorea, free taxi pickup/drop off was offered from hotels.
