“Delicious ice cream and friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

A wonderful view of Opunohu Bay. You must meet the owner, CHA CHA, she is so sweet. Her jams and ice cream and gift shop are wonderful. You can sit outside there and stare at the open ocean and Opunohu bay for a long time.....

“Nice stroll past lovely flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

It was easy to stroll up the path, enjoying native flowers and foliage. A small snack bar at the top provided cold drinks, snacks or delicious native jams for purchase.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

The gardens were stunning. Seeing vanilla and hearing how the plants are taked care of was fascinating. Make sure you bring cash, as they do not accept cards. I hear the vanilla ice cream cannot be missed (we didn't bring cash).

“Historical meal set within beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Friday at noon is the only time this meal is served. Cooked by Tahitians in the old style, serving foods historicaly eaten on the islands. A combination of old recipes that you will never find in restaurants, and some modern favorites. There are 10 different foods presented on your plate. Flavorful fresh made juice and Hinano are also available. One of the most affordable meals on the island--and the most enjoyed! All of this set within the beautiful gardens with a wonderful view of Oponuhu Bay. The Cruise Ship Paul Gauguin came to anchor the day that we were enjoying our meal and it was fun to watch.

“Tahitian Food made by Tahitians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Opened only on Fridays for now but a very good lunch with home grown vegetables. Very cheap: only 1500 francs (less than $20) including the home made pineapple giant fruit juice.
