I really wanted to like this place after reading the reviews on here. When we rented a car for the day, I was excited to find it. We stopped for lunch and was quickly seated. We ordered our food and drinks. The drinks came (diet coke and a beer) and 90-minutes later we received a basket of bread with butter. I was starving and quickly ate the bread. We were relaxing and enjoying the view. The waitress said that our food was coming. Then someone from the kitchen came with food and after placing it front of us, took it away and said that it belonged to the table next to us. Even though four other tables around us had been seated AFTER us, they were eating and some leaving the restaurant after eating. Still we sat and waited another 30-minutes. I asked the couple next to us if they were staying in the area and could recommend another place to eat. They said this place was their favorite and their first experience was slow also, but after they tipped ($$$) their second and third visits were wonderful. This couple was French and we are not. She said she didn't think they liked Americans. I would hate to think that was true and was the reason we were not served. In any case, we got up and decided to leave. The waitress met us halfway to the exit and asked what was wrong. ?!?!?!? Really? I told her that it had been two hours and we had not received our order. She said "sorry" and asked for 700 xpf for our two drinks. Really? I am shocked she even charged us for a diet coke and a beer after we wasted two hours of our afternoon there. The food looked good at the tables around us. I wished that we could have experienced it. There are not a lot of choices on the island of Moorea, so I am sad this was such a bust. By the way, we ended up having to buy potato chips and a bottle of water from a grocery store for lunch because all the restaurants close at 2 in the afternoons and do not reopen until dinner.
