All dishes were of the highest quality. It was fairly expensive but worth it. The amuse bouche was delicious: vegetables with goat cheese mousse and wasabi foam and seaweed crisps. The fish courses were perfection. Most interesting was the golden pearl which was like a pre-dessert. Warm chocolate sauce was poured over a chocolate "pearl" which wasa bit larger than a golf ball. The sauce melted the pearl and exposed the fruit and wafer inside. Incredible - I have never taken a video of food until this dish! As good a meal as I have ever eaten anywhere.

The culinary highlight of our trip to French Polynesia was our Saturday evening meal at this wonderful restaurant. Food, service, and presentation were equal to Le Bernardin in New York City, and the ambiance exceeded it. From the amuse-bouche to the little surprise dessert (we even made a movie of it being completed at the table), we were surprised that such a place existed this far from the mainland.
The prices almost match Le Bernardin, and if you are not prepared to part with a significant amount of cash to enjoy one of the finest meals of your life, you should stay away. But for a special gastronomic experience, with two chefs preparing incredible dishes, this is the place. We rank our meal here, with the crashing surf less than 100 feet from our table and a view of a stunning sunset, one of the top ten meals of our lives.

I admit the location was nice and the service was very good, but to ask 100 $ for a bottle of water, a small steak and two pieces of pork with no taste (I had to ask for pepper to have at least some taste) is definitely not acceptable.

One of our best experiences in Papeete, Tahiti. The hotel restaurant that we were staying in was so unbearable that we were forced to find refuge elsewhere and Le CoCo's was it. Every meal was magnificent and the staff was wonderful! This place is a MUST GO for any trip to Tahiti.
