This restaurant is on the Hilton property and serves breakfast and dinner. This review is for dinner only. Meant to be the upscale option on this sad excuse for a resort property; the service is slow, fragmented and quite frankly underwhelming. The food is bland and uninspiring while none of the courses arrived simultaneously for my dining partner and me.... More

This is where the hotel serves daily american hot breakfast. Breakfast is good and a good place to start your day with the breathe taking view of the overwater bungalows.

We ate here every day for breakfast. They have a combination of local, American and European fare. Eating fish for breakfast everyday is not something I do here in the states, but I did it everyday in Moorea and loved it. They served real porridge, sausage, bacon, all the normal American fare plus fish both cooked and raw, rice, fruits,... More

We loved have the Arii Vahine right on-site. We enjoyed new brunch options each morning and a wonderful buffet at night. When we asked our travel agent, True Tahiti Vacation, where we could see the best Tahitian dance show, Hilton-Arii Vahine was her immediate response. We booked early and got a great table in front. Enjoyed our buffet dinner and... More

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.
