It might be the best restaurant in Papeete. The food is classy French. The service is fine. It's a bit expensive but if you're looking for a special night out this is the place.

The food is delicious and the restaurant has a nice vibe - it is modern with paintings by a local artist on the walls. There were four of us and we enjoyed their salmon, crab and feta starter. One of our... More

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.,

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
