We stayed at the Hilton and are here every night just because the staff was so great and the chef is from France and personable and knows how to make authentic crepes. Will recommend to all my friends who visit here and you should try both savory and dessert crepes. A++++++ Don't miss this gem

The outdoor, over-water setting of this restaurant is awesome! Watching the Black Tip Sharks swim around is mesmerizing. As someone who appreciates crepes, though, I thought they were above average but not great. Service was a bit slow but okay for island time.

It was a very nice end to an evening, to have a sweet treat and a nice glass of wine. We tried the Bounty crepe, which has a good mix between the traditional crepe with nutella, and the exotic coconut icecream. yummy! Also nice to watch the fishes and the sharks!!!!

We went to have crêpes at Toatea twice during our stay at Hilton. Claude and his team have always made it very welcoming and both savoury and sweet crêpes are truly delicous! Savoury crêpes are great for dining, while sweet are a real treat late into the night. We loved the setting which we found unique - under the starry... More

A simple crepe Resturant with and incredible location, right over the water amid the Hilton Bungalows. At night they light up the water below and you can watch many types of reef fish and Black Topped Reef Sharks swim below your feet. The crepe selection is good and the chef does them justice.

We made a reservation from our resort (not the Hilton) and were greeted very warmly by the host when we arrived. He made sure to seat us at a table (not at the bar) along the lagoon for a fantastic view of the sharks, and that kept us entertained even when a few of the wait times were a bit... More

This place was recommended by everyone on the island for it's unique dining experience. Moorea doesn't have a lot of dining options and tourists are trapped in the island searching for food options. When we were there last month, Snack Mahana was #1. Do yourself a favor and try to roadside eats (Poulet Roti or something), they charge 850 for... More

I was determined to try out the Toatea crepe restaurant at the Hilton after reading it was rated highly by so many people on trip advisor. Making a booking was easy as we were already staying at the Hilton. We actually passed the restaurant a few times each night going to and from our OWB so got to see the... More

So, just so you know, the wait time is long. You wait to be seated, then for someone to take your order, then for the food...so as long as you know going in that you're going to wait, then you can just relax and watch the sharks (yikes). BUT it is worth it. We went back here THREE times for... More
