We went here based by trip advisor, concierge and local recommendations... the food was very good. I agree that the portions are large enough to share, so be sure to share! The service was good but not excellent. We had the salmon,feta crabmeat salad and foie gras starters, they were both excellent but could feed 2-3 people as starters. The... More

Nice interior, very friendly service, and excellent food (beautiful and tasty). By far the best of the many restaurants at which I've eaten here. The lighting is bright, so do not expect romance.

We were in Papeete for a couple of days and wanted something special and French. This place was perfect. It was an oasis in an alleyway.. What a pleasant surprise! Delicious food and excellent staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. It is expensive but well worth it.

It might be the best restaurant in Papeete. The food is classy French. The service is fine. It's a bit expensive but if you're looking for a special night out this is the place.
