We went based on a trip adviser recommendation for vegan options in Papeete. All diners (vegan and non vegan) were very happy with the selection, quality of food, atmosphere and friendliness of staff. Great place for a fine dining experience.

I had dinner prior to going to the airport. It was expensive but the presentation was excellent and the servers were very well trained. In fact, I felt like it was almost a training school for servers. I had the special Mahi dish and two...More

The food and wine was a real disaster. I was very surprised by the lack of quality. This is definitely not a gastronomic restaurant. It's pretty much like a canteen, nothing fancy. I expected much more...
