This was a great place to get away from the resort. They owners came to pick us up and welcomed us when we arrived. The dinner and wine was amazing.

We went here one night, since it was right opposite of the Maikai. We were the only guests that night and they were out of about 80% of their menu items. Ended up with steaks that were ok.

Excellent pizza, pasta as well as local and international dishes with friendly relaxed service. Great value compared to the resorts. The adjoining "Rio" cafe is a welcome addition for lunch, the service is friendly and the hamburgers are excellent.

Two restaurants under the same roof, very close to the MaiTai, this just-off-the-path establishment uses the front portion for lunch and the rear kitchen for dinner. Quiet music, decent wines, and Pepsi.

Not on the lagoon but the food was good and the service engaging. Great prices compared to the Kia Ora.

Vaimario is located almost across the street from the Maitai hotel. Pierre and Estelle have been running Vaimario for several years. Pierre makes the pizzas and Estelle makes almost everything else. Her poisson cru is excellent. And the Mahi Mahi in vanilla sauce. There is...More

I ate here 5 or 6 times on a dive trip to Rangiroa. I had dinner twice and had pizza both times. The pizza base here is excellent and would be hard to beat in Italy. The toppings are good especially considering the difficulty sourcing...More
