This experience confirmed our opinion that one does not visit French Polynesia for the dining experience. While a comfortable and cozy environment, with personal attention from the father of the chef noted (and not smothering), the meal was just "good", even including their signature dish. I was actually chastised midway through my meal by the father for "ruining the presentation"... More

We tried this place at the advice of our resort receptionist. Their signature parrot fish was divine. It simply melted in your mouth, and the taste was sublime. My wife and 7 year old son loved the pork knuckle dish too. It is not a luxury restaurant, as it has very simple decor, but the food is excellent.

Rudy's has a delicious range of seafood and meat entrees. The French influence is evident in the excellent sauces (saffron sauce with moon fish was outstanding), appetizers, and desserts. We have visited Moorea four times in about eight years, and Rudy's consistently delicious. The host will describe the preparations for the specials, gives information on the contrasts, and will talk... More

It's already rated as one of the top 5 restaurants in Moorea and for good reason: free pickup, great service, beautiful food and nice ambience.We ate here twice and came away licking our lips, twice. Best pina colada on the island, too!

We rented a VRBO villa for 2 nights in Moorea before finishing our stay at the Hilton. We went to Rudy's on a Tuesday night and it was packed. Definitely the best dinner we had in Moorea. We had the mussels and garlic bread as an appetizer and had the filet mignon, strip steak and the parrot fish. Rudy is... More
