we went into town to try this restaurant and were left unimpressed and wishing we had just stayed on our resort. I had a local whitefish, described as their "local salmon." The fish was very fishy tasting... not good. Rice was plain with no sauce....More

We arrived at the restaurant for lunch just minutes before its scheduled closing time, but the owner and staff were very cordial and accommodating to our group of four. Lunch was absolutely delicious and the dessert soufflé was amazing.

We had a bit of a hard time navigating the streets of Papeete and this place was worth the trouble. The food was excellent and the soufflé were exquisite. The place was small but had a very nice ambiance. The staff were just satisfactory.

The Souffle is great and larger than the photo. Enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant and flavour of the souffle. So rich and enticing, could not ask for more.
