Tried this place with a friend for lunch, and was really impressed by the quality of the food and service. It's a small restaurant, but it's cozy and colourful. Loved it. The waitresses are wonderful. The food is delicious. Would highly recommend it! And I am definitely going back this week before I leave Tahiti.

We went here for lunch and thought the food was out of this world: tuna ravioli and cassoulet of escargot. The service was excellent. We ate inside because it was so hot out. The patio would have been lovely if the weather had permitted. It is not cheap, but then very few things are in Papeete. Our meal was about... More

Lunch time packed with all locals. Not on the main touristic area in town. You need to walk around 10 minutes towards the mountain, on the road around the McDonald. If you want to ask locals, ask them where is the Socredo HQ (local bank). Once you are there, you will see on the right the store BUT. Restaurant is... More

This place is a hidden gem. We came on a cruise ship, so we only had one chance to dine out and I wanted to select carefully. I only searched in tripadvisor and I didn't look at the menu. Had I done so I would have noticed that everything was in French. Yikes. That's okay, I like French food. The... More

Excellent restaurant. Lunch was delicious. We both had the lobster ravioli and it was just out of this world. If there is anything bad to say about this restaurant is that they don't serve a lot of food, but then again is French cuisine.!!! Will be back next time we are there for dinner!!!!!

This little restaurant is a bit tucked away behind the government buildings in Papeete. It's not in the main tourist area. But once you get inside, you feel transported. The service is exceptionally good. The food was prepared in a way that was both beautiful to look at and fantastic to eat. We looked a bit bedraggled (this is not... More
