And coming here was worth it. Excellent service and inventive food. All table are by the water and create a lovely atmosphere. I had the beef which was excellent. Must try if in Papeete.

This place was fantastic and the service was really fine. We loved our meal, the attention to detail of the staff! It is an investment, but SO worth it for the ambiance, and the lovely food. VERY romantic!

Typically, the hotel restaurants are not top notch but this one is actually very good. The food was excellent. Reservations are recommended because the restaurant has a very limited capacity taking into consideration that Intercontinental is a huge hotel.

This is a popular restaurant with guests staying at the InterContinental and locals alike. The menu is impressive and likewise the flavors oh so good. I had dinner twice and lunch one so can say it is a safe bet. Except of course the portion sizes are small so you may need to go the full 3 of 4 courses... More

The restaurant was wonderful and the service first rate. We loved the Tahitians and how friendly they were everywhere we went, the staff at the resort were the best. We had many meals over the week and enjoyed each one. Try some tuna, the freshest I have ever had!

We were staying at the Intercontinental on our last night in Tahiti, and we booked very late in the day so couldn't get a reservation until 830pm (which is late on island time!) but it was totally worth waiting for. There was little view at that time, but it didn't really matter as the ocean breeze plus the lights of... More

The Lotus is an overwater restaurant in the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa resort. It offers very good local cuisine (like Mahi-Mahi in vanilla sauce, for example). The food is rather expensive, but the great setting and spectacular view of Moorea island is definitely worth it.
