A truly excellent experience with outstanding and creative french dishes in a small bistro-style setting, with very friendly and professional servers. The evening began with three surprise amuse bouche creations and continued with excellent seafood mains. I do only very occasional reviews, but this fine restaurant deserves to be at the very top among choices in Papeete!

I often go for lunch or dinner I never got any bad surprise , the menu is original , in a good and superior french made. The manager realises his meals by himself and is well known as a "GRAND CHEF"

We had several restaurants on our short list to try for lunch today. We decided on Le Sully and were very happy with our selection. The food was prepared in beautiful French fashion. Sometimes the French serving size can be very pretty but on the small side. We were very pleased to see a nice serving size for the price... More

We were actually hoping for a table at Le Souffle. Alas they were full so the waitress recommended Le Sully. Although this restaurant was not on my preferred list we went for and and what a great decision that was! The restaurant is quintessential french cafe style with a narrow space, small, busy tables and modest art. The menu is... More

I was slightly put off by the location on my first visit. It is quietly tucked away between some run-down shopfronts. However, once the door was open, we entered the culinary world of a fantastic chef from the small town of "Sully". MrGallopin came from a great family of gourmet chefs in the Limousin region of France. After 30+ years... More

My wife went here while on our honeymoon in Tahiti. It is a very small somewhat cramped location. Sadly, the most unfortunate aspect of the visit came as we learned it was a French only speaking staff. We were barely able to order only by asking other guests to translate the menu. The host brought over what was said to... More

Smallish restaurant nicely decorated. Friendly but slowish service serving a standout version mussels in cream sauce which were thoroughly addictive. Finished with a lovely grand marnier soufle. Thought it was expensive but but this might be true of comparable restaurants in papeete. I would go again just for the mussels. limited pricey wine list which we did not explore thoroughly... More

This is a wonderful french fine dinning restaurant. But unlike most restaurants of this kind, it really feels warm and friendly. I have that memory of the chef comming to our table and asking us if we wanted to taste his sauce he just finished. He was happy as like a kid showing an acheivement to his parents, and of... More
