They said they 'might' be able to find us a table, popped us in one right up the back, then the restaurant remained half empty by the time we left. The sol was worth it... really nice buttery seasoning, well cooked.

We ate here several times and everything we ordered was very good, and the service was great. It is closed some hours in the mid afternoon so call to find that out before you go,.

Very lively and highly recommended restaurant. We ordered a fried tuna and green bean salad. Tuna was surprisingly fishy. I ordered a wood fire grilled steak with fries, which was very good! Wife had one of their famous pizzas, which was bad. We asked well done and it was undercooked. Also, it was a Margherita pizza and it was full... More

I just came back from a vacation in Tahiti and had the pleasure of having several meals at this restaurant. They have a very extensive menu ranging from lots of very fresh fish to meat. They have a pizza oven and the pizzas are delish. I suggest the little pies for dessert done with seasonal local fruits!!! To die for!... More

The good here was excellent and the location was perfect. This was just a ways out of the hustle and bustle of the city and right on the water. Some of the tables are right over the water and the place was busy with locals which tells me that the food is good. Our meal was exceptional!

The food and service were both great. My husband and I visited while staying at the manava hotel. The restaurant was within walking distance. We loved the foie gras appetizer. It was our favorite of the night. The portions were good. We couldn't finish (even though we wanted to). Highly recommend!

A great buzz to this place. Good selection of food, extensive menu great location and really nice staff. The lady who owned it took the time to write down all the best things to do. My dinner was great. I left there pleasantly full, pleasantly merry and happy that I went. Highly recommend coming here.

Love the restaurant and recommend it to everyone who visits. On the water with a huge menu that never disappoints and always a tonne of atmosphere. Perhaps the most upbeat trendiest restaurant on Tahiti

We attempted to have a lunch here on the waterfront. However, their hours are strict and required a reservation. We came in at 11am, however they don't serve food until noon. Also, the reservation list was booked until 2pm. We did not eat here, and the hostess was difficult to communicate with because they only spoke French.
