Great food, convenient pickup from our hotel. The restaurant is right on the water. They turn on the lights and sharks and rays circle right next to your table. Our dinner was a highlight of an already great trip

Great menu, classic French dishes executed to perfection. Roger is a kind man and excellent chef. Beautiful location- try and go early so you can appreciate it before it gets to dark. Amazing shark feeding right while you eat! Unforgettable evening!

We had dinner here last night and even though it was raining and a little cold, we had an amazing night. Food was amazing and services was great. You must try the apple tart, delicious and the Frenchman who owns the restaurant is extremely friendly.

This was the best food we had outside our Hotel. Delicious main and you must have the Tart for dessert, service was fairly quick on arrival with pick up from our Hotel. The sharks and stingrays swimming off the deck were entertaining too. All in all it is a must place to visit. It was better than Rudy's which we... More

On our vacation, we dined here 3 times. The staff were very friendly, and the food was excellent! It was a short cab ride away from our hotel, and the food was very reasonably priced. There is also a space to eat on the patio, we just loved this little gem!

Good food spoilt by far too relaxed service. It was a long time before menus and drinks were offered. The restaurant is on the water edge so is visited by stingrays and small sharks.

Really nice to eat at a restaurant outside of the hotel - it is small with a limited menu (handwritten) but very good food (beware the portions can be large) - we were lucky and got a table at the water edge so had a great view of the rays and sharks being fed

My wife and I booked the dinner thru our concierge and had one of the best meals while in Moorea. The free pick up and drop off is a plus, but the real show was the food. The special of the day was Mahi ravioli and we both loved it! Hope to get a chance to go back soon!

What a beautiful evening. my husband and I were picked up at our hotel by Roger who drove us to his restaurant and we're seated by the water along the railing in the outside patio. this is not a fancy restaurant this is more like being in someone's backyard who's fixing a special meal for you. my husband had the...
