“Go elsewhere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The menu here is limited. Gnocchi was alright but my husband's fish was overcooked. Service is terrible. In a French restaurant, how can you be out of butter for the bread? This restaurant never seemed to be very busy and now we know why. Much better places to eat from on the island, or just order room service.

“Breakfast was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We ate here for breakfast every day as we are Hilton Gold. It only includes cold breakfast and you could upgrade for about $10 per person but we never did. There was plenty to choose from on the cold breakfast. We loved sitting outside in the morning - amazing views. Would recommend.

“Wonderful change from last year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We had dinner here last year and we very disappointed. The new chef is fantastic and it is so good we were extremely happy with our meal and the service! Wonderful presentation and we enjoyed every minute . The Hilton has done a great job in just one year to turn this place around!

“Hilton's restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

This is the restaurant at the Hilton resort on Moorea. Adequate, and overpriced compared to better local places on the island. We had a car and were able to eat elsewhere; we had lunch at Aito (close to the Hilton), and twice (good burgers and salads) at Les Tipaniers (farther away); and dinners at Le Mahogany (excellent) and Le Mayflower (excellent), at about half the price of the Hilton.

“Beautiful Setting, Delicious Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

We ate here during one of their shows, which was very entertaining! I had a shrimp curry which was delicious. My husband really enjoyed his meal too. The prices were higher than most of the other restaurants we went to, and I felt the food was just as good as those restaurants. So the value wasn't as good, but if you're staying at the Hilton, it's definitely worth the stop, especially with the show. We had breakfast here every morning, which was wonderful. We woke up to a phenomenal view and every breakfast food imaginable available to us. I looked forward to breakfast every day!
