Wow! The pizza we had here was SO very tasty! Humorously, a waitress accidentally gave us someone else's pizza, and though we already had it on our plates, she took it off our plates, and delivered it to them! The pizza we did get was off the hook! Everything there was lovely, and the vibe is fun and family! Don't... More

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and staying just down the road - I decided to check it out. All reviews are true, great location, great ambience, great service and a mean margherita... a good indicator in itself! We headed along at 6pm as we hadn't reserved and anticipated it being busy on a Saturday night. Nearly all the tables... More

We went there for dinner and my husband had a prawn curry, and I had a burger, and we both liked our meals. Enjoyable relaxing dinner.

We went here as it was walkable from our hotel and came recommended. We booked which was just as well as the Friday night was busy. Great service and our lack of French was not a problem. Wonderful food at prices that are good for this part of the world. A lovely evening.

We visited this restaurant a few times during our holiday and every time was a good time. Great menu, with something for everyone in the family. Fancy food to comfort food, fresh tuna, fish burgers with fries and delicious desserts. We loved the restaurants setting with views to Moorea. If you want a cool, relaxed atmosphere, quality food and attentive... More

Fabulous. What more can we say. Great food. Great service. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Located just a short walk from our hotel it was far superior to what the hotel had to offer.

We went to the Blue Banana for dinner. We were seated on the deck section on a lovely evening. The menu was extensive and our meals were delicious with generous servings. It was a little expensive but would definitely recommend dining here.

We went early for lunch (before 12) and managed to get a table on the deck over the water on a Friday without a booking. Food was excellent - we shared the antipasto vegetable plate and then I had a shrimp salad and my wife had the beef in port wine sauce. Then shared a very large desert rum and... More

We were recommended this cafe by an Air Tahiti management worker from NZ. The cafe was only a short, easy 10 minute walk to the right when exiting our stop over hotel, The Manava Suites. We had to walk in the dark and rain at 7pm without a dedicated footpath, but it was lit on one side of the road... More

Four of us went to this restaurant for lunch. Others reviewers have said how good the food was and we would agree. As a starter the Tuna 3 ways was outstanding --Natural Sashimi with the normal Soy sauce with Wasabi plus a Ginger sauce. Grilled Goats Cheese salad whilst it was very large was loved by all. The two servings... More
