The concierge at our hotel recommanded us this restaurant as we wanted to visit teahupo. Upon our arrival, it rained too hard and the clients were not many but we could appreciated a wonderful view of its bay. We were so hungry that we especially enjoyed our lunches. Their fish with vanilla sauce was excellent and their gourmet coffee was... More

my husband and I decided to stop here for lunch while out driving around the island. We looked at the menu and decided we didn't really want to spend $40nzd + per meal for lunch. The food coming out however looked very nice. Instead we decided to order dessert and a glass of wine. Desserts were approx. $20 each and... More

We went here for lunch and were very pleased with our decision. We actually turned up a little on the late side for a French restaurant 1.15pm and half expected them to be winding down service. However we were seated on the decking overlooking the harbour and although it was raining, the views were pretty special. There was a Christmas... More

This restaurant deserves to ne known, its site by the sea is very calm and pleasant. We found good products surf & turf like tournedos and lobster. The lunch was very flavourful and this CIT was surprising. Congrats Chef and your team.

During our stay in French Polinesia, we lunched in a restaurant by the seaside recommanded by our hôtel. The people there was so nice and we enjoyed our meals: fishes as paraha peue or mahi mahi and lobsters were so incredible. Their sauces were so amazing too. We appreciated its beautiful view on the bay so peacefull with nice weather.

Most people would use Tahiti to fly in & out as fast as possible to the outer islands. If you have a chance...don't ! You miss some sides of Tahiti that you don't get on the motu's and the bungalows. Rent a car, use 2-3 days to explore the island's south,the valley of water, the fresh fish roulottes nearby and... More

We ate here on a Friday night and Villa Mitirapa had made a booking for us so we got a free juice each! The meal was plentiful and we did have 2 half sides with it, which we probably could have shared between 2 people. The tuna special i had was done beautifully. We didn't have any room left for...

We enjoyed the food and setting so much, that we had to come back to try more on the menu. The setting, welcome and relaxing music makes it a very special place to eat out. We highly recommend this restaurant.
