The restaurant is located in papeete 'the decor is interesting but not what you would expect from a highly rated restaurant . the steak with. Sauce was good but over cooked on the first run ' the...

A small dining area (around 15 tables), staff with only limited English capabilities, but the food was exceptional. I had a sweet bread dish (one of my favored, but difficult to get outside France and Belgium) that could compete with any 3 star restaurant's.

Went here for lunch, which was quite pricy for a quick lunch but so worth it. Great steaks and wine was had here, sat in a great location on the street watching the world go by

Great for a fancy night out. Food is french cuisine so portions are good. If you are american portions will seem small in this restaurant. Wine list is varied and location is also good. Perfect for a romantic night, children are not recommended.

We were traveling to the south of France and did a one night stop in Levernois. We walked around looking for a place to eat. Came across one restaurant but fully booked. So by chance we found this restaurant. Not having any reservation we gave it a try. The owner was more than happy to find us a place to... More

This charming french bistro, has been recommended by our taxi driver. What a lovely surprise. The food is delicious!!! The only negative point is that is a very closed place (no windows). But overall, I strongly recommend for the quality of the food and friendly service as well.

One of the best places in Tahiti for French cuisine. From entry to dessert, everything is excellent and could be presented in the best tables in Paris

This place is tucked away in a small side street a couple of blocks back from the Front de Mer. It has a rather unassuming frontage and no patio area, unlike a lot of the restaurants in Papeeti but that means it is quiet and cool.The waiters are attentive and knowledgeable, the wine list is very good and the food...
