We came for a quick dinner on a Friday night. The owner/waiter was there to greet is on arrival. He was in great form and set a brilliant atmosphere in the restaurant. He told us the kitchen was a little busy and even brought us a round of drinks to compensate. I have lived in Tahiti for 6 years, I... More

Had lunch here one day, had a meat stew in tomato sauce with bell peppers. Stew was tasty and somewhat spicy, served with mashed potatoes and fresh rolls. Happy.

Amazingly flavorful food of a great variety. We... More

Au Piment Rouge is a cute little restaurant in Papeete that has great food and service. I highly recommend the axoa (a veal stew) and the calamari with chorizo.

We had a very relaxing, delicious early lunch here while in Papeete. It's on a busy street, but you feel far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The waiters are friendly and attentive. The food was yummy and in the style of the South of France.

Thank Jetfiretraveler
