They were about to close up when we arrived. The oven had been shut down. There were 4 of us and they decided to go ahead and light it up again. We were all hungry before a 7 1/2 hour flight to LAX. A young woman but very tall, spoke excellent English and ensured we had everything we needed. As... More

We were staying overnight at the Tahiti Airport Hotel and were in desperate need of a feed. We love Chinese food, so made the short walk down the hill to Ocean Restaurant. Who'd of thought one of the best Chinese meals in your life would be in Tahiti of all places? Between the two of us we devoured Salt &... More

We had a very good Asian meal there. It was recommended by our Airbnb host. Very close to the airport and reasonably priced by island standards

We are dinner here while staying one night at the Tahiti Airport Motel, they open for dinner between 6pm - 10pm. The food was really nice, i had the chicken with cashews, I have never seen so many cashews in a Chinese dish! It's pretty pricey and as we were on a budget we shared a plain rice, although it...

My husband and i went here because it was just across the street from the airport. we were dropped off 6 hours before so we had lots of time and didn't want to pay for a taxi to another restaurant. The food was okay but i expected better

I had a good meal for lunch at this restaurant. The spicy beef lived up to its name. Also had the salty squid and special chow mein. Dishes were in the $15 range.

We found this from reading the reviews and guess what? It was REALLY close to the airport. We walked there while we were waiting for our midnight flight. We had to walk up the stairs and across the street but it was like a 5 min walk. We ordered the fried rice cuz we figure you can't really go wrong... More

My wife and I were waiting for our late night flight back to the U.S. A person at the front desk of our hotel in Tahaa recommended this restaurant as being better than any airport options and a short walk from the airport. The walk is not long, but it is up a series of steps that will make you... More

We stopped in for a pre-flight dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the voluminous menu. Everything we had was quite good if not memorable.
