We ate here as part of a Pre-Cruise stay, both for breakfast and lunch. The good features for breakfast was an omelette station (eggs any style) and the tropical fruit selection was fantastic. Just about any other food you might want was also available, with some French influence including croissant, butter, and marmalade.

The lunch had cheeseburgers as well as hot trays of chicken and lots of healthy and exotic salad choices (Nice variety; tasty). For a buffet, I was impressed. [Disclaimer: this was covered as part of a cruise. The Buffet might seem expensive to an American, as the rack-rate isn't cheap. But remember where you are. You've flown to the ends of the earth -- well, not quite.]

Drinks in the bar aren't cheap, either. Beer is $8+ and a Mojito is $24. If you drink a lot and aren't wealthy, you might want to stop and buy your "supplies" first.

Every Sunday they pull out the stops and make a FANTASTIC brunch! There's a fun show and it's very festive. They also do evening shows on Wednesday & Friday nights and we saw a fabulous group sing and dance. The men's numbers were amazing!

I ate here for breakfast every day of my stay. The food was plentiful and I liked that they had a made to order omelet/egg station. There were lots of different foods to choose from and several Tahitian dishes were available each day.

We ate dinner in Te Tiare twice. Both times, though we had only one course each, the bill was $90 US. The helpings were generous, but poor quality -- my husband's pork ribs were all fat, and the sauce came out of a bottle. This was in great contrast to the buffet breakfast served in the same restaurant. The food was well cooked, well presented, and there was a wide variety of dishes. Why there should be such a difference in quality from the poor dinners is a mystery.

I see some think they lack a good variety for breakfast, we didn't feel that way. If anything, there were too many options. You could have an omelet made to order, scrambled eggs, poached eggs, boiled eggs. Oh, and the fruit variety was wonderful and everything was very fresh because they actually grow lots of their own fruits and produce. They had lots of vegetables, plus a wide variety of pastries and breads to choose from. We never left hungry at breakfast. We also went there for lunch a couple of times, which was also very good. It was more expensive than most hotels, but you gotta remember it's in French Polynesia where everything is expensive.
