We were really disappointed here - the food was very average, or below average, and the prices quite high. We raised concerns about one of the dishes with the staff - a simple shrug was all we got back - they couldn't care less about customer satisfaction. We much preferred the food and service in the bar.

Just reviewed this restaurant when I reviewed the Manava Resort -- it's in the resort. Other people said the service was bad and it was expensive, but our meal was perfectly paced, the wait staff was pleasant and attentive, and (by SF and Paris standards) we thought the meal was quite reasonably priced. Our entire meal came to $130, including... More

This restaurant far exceeded our expectations. The service was attentive and superb and the food was excellent. They even brought a vegetarian amuse bouche for my partner, much appreciated! I had the tuna trilogy and duck and both were fantastic. It is a pricy but worth it for a special occasion.

What a beautiful and authentic restaurant. It was really lovely. We arrived at the hotel at 10pm and they closed at 10pm. They specially kept the restaurant open for us. Beautiful food and you really feel at home there.

We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed our meals 'in a hotel restaurant' we had the confit duck, trois Polynesians tuna (a must to eat tuna in French Polynesia!), salmon which was eye catching and innovative in taste and a French onion soup, they also had three types of fresh warm rolls which were free and could have had...

Our entree's and main's were the best of our trip to Tahiti. Service however was very slow. Were seated with only the wine list for a long period of time with no attention. Had to ask for a menu. But once the food came out - all was forgiven. Lovely!

We recently stayed at the Manava Suite Resort and had lunch at the Vaitohi. We sat outside, under a trellis (they could use some overhead fans to move the air more). It was an elegant French restaurant with excellent service and food. We tried a fish dish and found it very tasty and creative - we were in awe! We... More

We were expecting a lot. The Vaitohi restaurant looked impressive but failed to deliver to expectations. Our meal here was reasonable but not special, with the exception of the prices.....they were exceptionally dear. We ate outside and were troubled by the available light, it was very poor and this contributed to us getting the wrong wine. In a country that... More
