While you will likely get a couple of small complimentary hors d'oeuvres, the food was not our favorite. The appetizer we had was with tuna sashimi and smoked swordfish, but the fish was such a thin layer around the rest of the dish that you could hardly taste it. Our entrees were pretty good, but seemed very salty. I'm not... More

We dined there twice during our visit. The service was very prompt and food high quality French cuisine. Unfortunately the first night we were seated opposite the rest rooms so it pays to book early insist that you dine at the waters edge

This is the best restaurant we went to while in French Polynesia for 12 days. The service and food was the best we had our entire trip. It is expensive, but well worth it. From the bread and olive oil (citrus and vanilla olive oil so very unique) to the two small complimentary hors d'oeuvres to the appetizers, dinner, and... More

This was beyond our expectations. We stayed at this hotel and ate here. Very good. We ate at our hotel in Bora Bora too and that was disappointing.

On our final night before an early morning flight we decided to eat in the hotel at Le Lotus. The waiters struggle a bit with English but they manage to deliver. Food is very good and cocktails are great! The view is amazing! A must stop for sure.

Beautiful restarant over water. Sit in peaceful bliss and listen to the water below. Menu was not expansive but everything my wife and I had was excellent. Definitely worth the money when staying at the Intercontinental.
