We ordered pan pizzas from the menu as appetizers. Those are not... More

Be sure to make a reservation for a table outside in the area where there are fans. The inside seating is very hot and is unpleasant for dinner because it is hot. We had margarita pizza and salad which was wonderful!! Highly recommend the pizza!!

The pizza at this restaurant is delicious! Located further down the water front than the markets, it is worth walking to in order to eat amongst the locals. Reasonable prices however not the cheapest pizza around

While shopping in Papeete we stumbled upon this gem. Lots of locals were dining so we thought "it must be good". We shared a salad and a pizza. Plenty for two! It was simply outstanding! We've been to Europe and this was as authentic as you get. You won't be disappointed!

While stopping in Papeete on our way to and from Bora Bora, we had dinner at L'Api'zzeria. We nearly passed by, thinking it was merely a pizza parlor. But were glad we didn't as it sports a very nice Italian menu. The owner and chef were both Italian and the food was very good. The atmosphere lacks in that the... More

I went here with a co-worker and found the atmosphere there very nice and enjoyable. It was the kind of place to go for a casual lunch but the patio is shaded and relaxed so you're find for business or personal visits. The inside had interesting decor, but I like patios if they're shaded and don't have any bugs. This... More

We found this place by chance and went back that evening for a delicious Pizza and beer. Owner/Cook was great and friendly even though we didn't speak much French we got by and had heaps of laughs \.

My simple steak was grilled just the right way. The drinks arrived on time, no fuss at all, need to pay for Internet access. The crowd seems to be regulars, not a tourist's trap, all staff are women. All are smiley and friendly. Will definitely go back when next in town,

We visited here early one evening. At that time, we found a free parking spot right across the street behind the restaurant (I bet it'd be harder during the day though). This is not a posh place - tables are garden furniture on gravel, with a busy road running just outside the front, but the staff were extremely welcoming and... More
