This restaurant has a good reputation and we can confirm that It is deserved. It is easily found on a side street in central Papeete and we had lunch there on our one day in town. We had not made a reservation and when we arrived it looked very busy but they took only a couple of minutes to find... More

The portions of the courses were so enormous that our party of 6 shared main dishes. But the plates were all well prepared and ingredients fresh with a tropical edge.,

While staying in Tahiti we found ourselves in desperate need of food from outside one of the resorts. We took a taxi to Papeete and stumbled upon La Bouche. I'm not sure if we were jut really hungry for something different, but this was one of the best meals of my life. My wife had the parrot fish and I... More

Again, after 7 months in Papeete, I stumbled across this amazing restaurant. There is an open kitchen and we can see the chef cooking. The staff are attentive, speedy and friendly. The food is really good for this town and price very reasonable. The table right by the corner is too cold. We had the foie gras lentil salad, scallop... More

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
