Had the VIP table, with the 5 course honeymoon tasting menu paired with wine. It was delicious. Service could have been better (more talkative, explaining things more), but food was spectacular. Would recommend tasting menu over regular menu as portions were perfectly sized. Didn’t get...More

My husband and I ate lunch at Villa Mahana Matira. This cannot be missed!! The restaurant had 360 views of the lagoon, a fresh beeze, and only four tables. We enjoyed a Tahitian feast. This experience outranks the ones that I have had in Paris...More

My wife and I recently visited to celebrate her 30th birthday and booked this restaurant after the concierge called it "a must". They have a small number of tables (we were told 7) and a good amount of interest, so it books up pretty quick....More

We wanted to try one high-end option off-resort, and the St. Regis suggested this restaurant. Although pricey (~$650 for the prix fixe and wine pairing for two), it was well worth the visit. They seated us at the "VIP table" right above the restaurant, which...More
