We had breakfast each morning usually with a table on the balcony overlooking the lagoon. The range of food available was extensive including fresh fruit, cereals, egg dishes with the usual accompaniments and a selection of meat, cheeses and wonderful bread. A terrific venue to start the day with friendly staff, a great view and excellent food. First class.

This Ari Vahine has the best breakfast on the island of Moorea. The selection is enormous. With fruits that melt in your mouth to the eggs prepared any way you want them. The French bakery has encredable selection of pastries and breads.

A nice setting overlooking the Hilton lagoon did not compensate for the measly portions. The risotto was nice but small and the tuna was over-cooked. 3 nights a week (mon,we'd, sat) they have a buffet with entertainment, limiting dinner selection even further if you are not a fish lover.

We had breakfast here every morning as a part of our package at the Hilton Moorea. If you love bread (like I do - especially after a low-carb wedding diet!), this is the place for you! They also have eggs, bacon, sausage, crepes, omelets, tons of fruit, juice, etc... A beautiful buffet.

This is the main restaurant at the Hilton for dinner. Both the food and service were really good! Fresh fish. Everything we tried tasted amazing!

I could've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this place. The selection was amazing, especially if you like fresh breads and pastries.

This is the breakfast restaurant and there is always enough variety and food to suit everyone. Polynesian breakfast Sundays are fantastic and you will see families of locals come in to enjoy the bounty. But to the evening meal where the restaurant is a fine dining delight. As part of our stay we ate in the restaurant twice. I had... More

My favorite is the fish dish served during breakfast buffet. But I have to say that we were disappointed the first time we visited this restaurant, was also the night of our arrival. The service was poor. They always serve us the wrong food and drink.

Had dinner on the terrace of a lovely restaurant. It's a combination French and Polynesian cuisine and we had the beef filet and the lamb shank. Beef was just a little tough but flavorful and the lamb quite good as well. We had a request of our waiter and four different staff members tried really hard to provide what we... More

My husband and I stayed here at the hilton and ate here every morning. The views are great and the breakfast was good. They had a decent selection of hot and cold foods. The fresh juice and fruit was delicious. We did have dinner here one night for the Polynesian buffet show and they had a great selection. Expensive at... More
