The food and service were very good. Beautiful view of the laguna with swimming and jumping fish. But... pricey restaurant !!

“Lunch in an over water bungalow restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

The day was sunny, blue sky with lofty white clouds nearby. The seating was at a small,table overlooking the sea. We were close enough to see the colorful fish doing their own snorkel! We each ordered a glass of St Clair Sav Blanc from NZ, cold and refreshing. We ordered a Fisherman's Platter for two,for lunch! It came with choices of sides, we had a mixed salad and a angel hair pasta. The fish was prawns, calamari, scallops, and the catch of the day Mahi Mahi! A very generous selection for two! The dipping sauce was a melted butter, cream, white wine and ?spice. The server did not know the name in English. We enjoyed each bite and kept marveling at our good choice. The freshness of the fish could not be doubted!!! This was just under$100!!!!!

“Great food, wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Cant say enough good things about this restaurant. During our stay at the intercontinental we ate there about 4 times. Partially due to the fact that the food was just stellar but also because the food & service in the other main restaurant & bar was so abysmal.

Really enjoyed the tables right over the water. Menu was unique & tasty. Enjoyed Parrot fish for the first time & could not get enough of their fresh baked bread. Its a pricey stop but well worth it.

“best meal in 2 weeks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Loved the view! Sit along the edge so you can look over to the lit up coral & watch the fish
The food was to DIE FOR!! By far our best meal (actually 2 as we went back the following night) we had in our 2 weeks on the islands.

“Gourmet mid-Pacific French restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The setting was waterside, and the food was delicious. Popular with local bigwigs. About as close to a gourmet French restaurant as you'll find on Tahiti.
