We had dinner here each night we stayed at the Hilton Resort. The food was top quality with lots of options and good drinks/wine menu. Kids were well catered for too. We covered most of the menu during the week and everything was a very good standard. The fish and curries were great.

The buffet provides a wide variety for breakfast including both hot and cold items. Cooked to order omelettes and egg dishes with a variety of meat and fish options. The highlights for us were the delicious fresh juices including mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit and the locally made jams and jellies.

My wife and I visited on a Saturday and Wednesday nights. Both have theme nights where there is a show. The food is just as good as the show.

We had a couple of wonderful meals at the Arii vahine at the Hilton. The trio of duck was absolutely devine and i really highly recommend this. It was tender and the spring rolls devine. The only reason I rated four star instead of five is that husband ordered seafood curry, and was served vege curry instead. He was halfway... More

We had the cold breakfast buffet which was included in our hotel package. Quite a bit to eat. We were happy not to have to pay for food having just come off the Oceana Marina cruise ship where ALL food was included!

Lots of outside seating as well. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For breakfast the make to order omelets are delicious. You dish up... More

We didn't miss a breakfast! The breakfast offerings were outstanding, and the view is fabulous. The dinners were good as well with a special night for a typical Polynesian buffet and dance show. I was hoping for French Polynesia's specialty, Poisson Cru, but it was not offered at the buffet.

For hotel dining, this is by far the best that I've had. A french inspired menu has something for almost everyone. I started by meal with a crispy goat cheese sale with Tahiti flowers and honey. Beautifully presented and equal in taste. My main course was a delicious baked mahi mahi with sweet potato and saffron sauce. The fish was... More

At a $600 a night resort I expected much better. Of course the prices are still up there but the food taste and quality is very poor. We were staying for 4 nights and ate dinner here on the first night and then never again. We had the stone bisque and the bouillabaisse - we had had both before and... More

The breakfast was so disappointing we wouldn't take a chance on dinner given the prices. The Crepes on site is an excellent option as well as some of the restaurants in the area that will pick you up.
