We read about this hidden gem before going on our trip so we were very excited when we finally arrived in Taha'a. Our concierge at Le Taha'a Resort & Spa were kind enough to arrange the reservation and the free boat shuttle took us to the main island where an older man along with a kid led us to his beat up car that only opens on one side. He drove for about 5 minutes and when we arrived, it was a nice, truly local experience. I can't deny that I felt like I might have walked in to a kidnapping situation at first :) The meal cost 4900 XPF / person and consisted of the daily catch served on an open bamboo. When it arrived on our table, we are all smiles and excited to dig in. Lobster in garlic sauce, curry shrimp, poisson cru, fish, rice and bread were served. A large grapefruit was served after the meal. A 1.5 bottle of water cost 650 XPF. For the experience, great taste and local flare, this place is well worth the money. A must see when you're in Taha'a! There is not much of a view here though. After dinner, the man then showed us a Japanese magazine where the restaurant was featured, gave us a vanilla bean to take home and then drove us back to the dock where our boat was waiting. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Louise that evening.
