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

We went for my friend's birthday, and when the chef heard the occasion, we had a special treatment and even his recipe book offered. The owners are really nice, and the quality is always "at the rendez-vous"! Love the soufflé for dessert. You will surely enjoy your meal!

We dined here at the suggestion of the owner at Le Souffle (just around the corner), another great Papeete restaurant. He didn't have a table for us for dinner so he made us a reservation at Le Sully. Le Sully was great! The most pleasant surprise was a sampler of Patees as an appetizer and soup to start (gratis). Beef... More

We had not learnt about this restaurant nor heard of any recommendation, it was a most delightful discovery since our arrival in Tahiti. The lunch was exceptional and i couldn't help my curiosity and asked the waitress if the chef had worked in other establishment before. It turned out that it was the chef of "auberge pacific' (mr. Galopin) "... More

Le Sully is probably one of the best restaurants in Tahiti... excellent service and fantastic food including very good homemade terrine and a great Rossini beef fillet. Local fish is also beautiful like the delicious mahi mahi souffle. Any gourmet staying in Papeete should try it !
