“Good french food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We cabbed from Le Merdien which was ~$60 making the meal not a good value. The food was quite good. I had the Thai style beef. Perfectly cooked (medium though they did not ask) with nice veggies accompanying. The place opens at 7 and reservations are recommended

“Paris in Polynesia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Excellent meal and service. Lovely wine glasses embossed with the name of the restaurant. They mean to stay! Foie gras was exceptional with vanilla. Thai beef and scallop main courses highly recommended. A pleasant surprise in the less than salubrious Papeete downtown neighbourhood.

“Lovely food & exceptional service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Enjoyed authentic French food in a pleasant restaurant. Service was exceptional - warm & welcoming. We were prepared to spend some time deciphering the menu but they gave us an English version without asking.

“Much less than expected...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Steep prices for barely average food. Would not come back. It is very difficult to find any exciting restaurant in Papeete, well this one is not it...
