Complimentary pickup service from the Hilton was on time and a short ride later we felt we were invited to a friends house rather than a restaurant. Escargot and Duck breast were wonderful and we had a great evening. Definitely recommended.

We were fortunate to have the restaurant pick us up from the Hilton! Our group of four enjoyed: escargot, goat cheese salad, pork knuckle, stuffed parrot fish and the shrimp. Food was lovely! The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming!

Rudy's offered a generally French menu. I had the beef bourguignon but the others had Parrot fish which was fantastic and Maui-Maui which might have even been better.

It's been almost a year since our trip to Moorea and my husband and I are still talking about our meal at Rudy's. It was so good we actually went back a second time during our vacation. The mussels were to die for! Great wine selection (especially given how remote the island is!) The service was outstanding. If you set... More

We were welcomed by the father of the chef; he was our host; he's very proud of his son, with good reason. Absolutely delicious! ...I/we want to go again!

My husband and I ate dinner at Rudy's during our recent visit to French Polynesia. It was probably the best meal we had during our whole trip. From the hotel pick-up to the restaurant service and the amazing food, we had a great experience. My husband ordered their specialty - the parrotfish - and it lived up to the hype.... More

Met by Rudy's father, with apologies for not being to accommodate us on Valentine's Day, I was impressed that he remembered and by the sincerity of his apology. Fried calamari was fair, but everything else including Margaritas and Rudy's cocktail were excellent! The tuna tartar was great. Not bland! Seafood pasta had lots of seafood and a light marinara sauce.... More

Rudy's is a fine local, family-run restaurant which will transport you from your hotel for dinner. Rudy, the owner, lived for several years in the USA and is a humorous host who believes in their imaginative sauces on excellent local seafood. Non-seafood dishes also are excellent. Highly recommended!

Thank jenkatze
