We were staying at the Tahiti Nui for a night after our trip on the Aranui and opted for dinner in the hotel’s restaurant. Based on reviews, and the excellent service we had received from the hotel’s reception, we were expecting the same high standards in the restaurant.
The initial service was marginal at best. Our young server seemed untrained and unable to answer any questions. We watched people who came in after us get bread while we waited for our water. Our white wine had not been previously refrigerated but given the wait for our food, it cooled down. The restaurant had a selection of vegetarian pasta dishes and while the pasta with red pepper I ordered came with pasta and sun-dried tomatoes, it was tasty as was the risotto and the lamb.
I would not recommend a special trip to Velvet but if you are staying in the hotel, have a money to spend and are too tired to go out, then it is a reasonable option.
