Excellent Sole a huge selection of daily specials. Great service and a very pleasant setting. Prices are in line with most of the restaurants we ate at while in Tahiti. Give them a try call for reservations though parking is limited

Excellent food, a bit pricey, but delicious. This place really filled up and became quite noisy. We started with escargot, and fois gras...so good. You also need to make a reservation a few days in advance.
