We went twice during our stay in Moorea. Food was great, best we had in Moorea. You must get the Lobster Ravioli and the Shrimp Dumplings. The owner was friendly and greeting each guest and recommended items on the menu. He even remembered us when we returned the second time. Prices are still above average but much better than the hotels and it's better quality.

Only downside was you have to be direct with the servers or you could be sitting there for awhile waiting for a drink or the check.

The portions are generous sizes and the food was good. Not spectacular but good. I had the shrimp dumplings (5) which almost could have been a meal onto itself- a very good value and tasty too. My wife had a green salad with blue cheese and a dressing that had too much mustardwhich was way overpriced 13000 XPF.

As a main dish I had the Sashimi tuna, which is more like a thick carpaccio, with rice and a peanut-soy-ginger-sesame sauce. It was good another good value for 22000 XPF.

My wife thinks that her ravioli were frozen and she did not seem to like her meal too much. Since the portions were big we did not have room for dessert.

The worst part about the experience was the service though. I have never seen a staff/owner that is so unorganized. It seemed like they were running around like chickens with their head cut off. Someone needs to teach the owner how to run a restaurant. She clearly is not from the restaurant industry and must have picked it up on the island. Service was friendly but way too slow for us. We were actually going to leave because we must have just sat there for 15 minutes in the beginning. BTW, they only have seating for40-50 people so, definitely something that two people who know what they are doing can take care of.

Excellent dinner. Had tuna sashimi one of the freshest fish I have had. Started with dumplings. Delicious. Creme brûlée for dessert. I m a big connoisseur of creme brûlée. This is the best I have had. A definite must place to eat at.
