“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I must admit the "Le Carre" is an excellent dining choice in French Polynesia. The menu choices are exquisite, the design of the options is very unique and the flavors are simply delicious.

They have several dishes that explore how the different flavors in the ingredients can be used,

The price of the restaurant is not low cost, nor is the wine list, but there is no question the value of the food and the wine is clear for the price paid. There are great choices on the wine list and they make the flavors of the menu choices stand out.

The chef(s) are very thoughtful and intentional in their decisions and the experiences here in Le Carre blend French style artistry with local cuisine and food choices.

The restaurant host was excellent as well as the chef when we dined. The only disappointment was some of the service staff were not well matched with the goals and atmosphere desired at the restaurant (in my humble opinion).

Highly recommended.

Great service, really great food.
Cathy had the lamb and I had the pork belly. Presentation was really good and the taste superb. Followed by a marvellous chocolate creation. The wine was from the Haut Medoc and excellent. The ambience was lovely with a full moon over our shoulder. Recommended.

“Worst Service Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We were so disappointed that we had to walk away from this restaurant. We had made reservations for dinner as we were staying at the property and liked the menu. We were terribly disappointed by the rude and confrontational behavior of the host, Dominic, that we walked away. We took our business to a restaurant of the property. I think management should be made aware of Dominic's bad behavior. Costing the property business!

“Fabulous food.”

Ate there the last two nights & the food was spectacular. Had the "hamburger" and the foie gras with risotto. Both were presented beautifully and have fantastic flavor. Kudos to the chef
