Went there for dinner with a party size of 8. The food was very good and the service was also very good. Portions are large and you will spend at least 2500 francs for a meal.

Nous n'utilisons pas d'huile d'arachide, ni de noix de coco dans notre cuisine. Nous utilisons principalement de l'huile d'olive et parfois dans quelques recettes de l'huile de tournesol.

Description
Dominique and Philippe, the owners of the restaurant "The Yellow Lizard Cafe", warmly welcome you to their friendly hotel design is modern and local. The originality of concept consists both in cooking a la plancha, but also in the original presentation skewers which are suspended on a suitable bracket. "The lineup in all its forms" Cooking a la plancha allows to highlight the flavors of local products such as shrimp Opunohu, bluefin tuna, swordfish and mahi-mahi. It offers a perfect cooking with lamb chops, beef and chicken piece, but also vegetables that retain their crispness. Note that each skewer made at least 250 g. For dessert, besides the homemade ice cream with fresh fruit Moorea and chocolate cake, pineapple and banana are also to be plugged caramelized or flambeed in rum.
