Awesome little Restaurant located next to the wharf in Rangiroa. Her food was always excellent (and well priced) and Lili always serves you with a smile on her face.

We ate here two night in a row, because the other places we tried were terrible. The food was amazing and plentiful. The service was .. well the best it could be considering the circumstances.

Stopped in here after snorkeling for some snacks. The place was packed but it didn't take more than a few minutes to get a cold beer and a table. The food was tasty and very reasonably priced. They are located right off the main dock.

Delicious, fresh, and creative seafood dishes. We loved the tuna curry. The portions were huge. Service was very good, but not especially fast.

Visited 2 years ago and looked forward to returning. Unfortunately on our lunch time visit the relaxed easy-going ambiance that Lili showed Back then has disappeared, felt chaotic with little warmth. Food was OK nothing special.
