Stayed in Le Meridien and right next door is this super pizza restaurant. The place outside(eat outside) doesn't look like much but brick-oven pizza to die for! Had what we would call "the works." Definitely the way to go if your a pizza lover.

Ate at restaurant twice - but warn you - have only pizza or pasta. My husband had a seafood gratin and it was awful. Otherwise nice. Reasonable prices.

Ate here for lunch while staying at Le Meridien. We had driven around Tahiti for about three hours and found nowhere to eat so it was ironic that this restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. We ate inside because it was very humid...More

We stayed next door (Le Meridien Hotel) and we could walk to this restaurant. We went once and then we decided to go back for our last diner, to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the cuisine (sort of Provencal cuisine). Raw fish is available with...More
