We recently had lunch here. Service was very slow and the meals a little overpriced for what you get. That said, the food does need to get there from town! I've never stayed here but it looks like it could do with an overhaul. That said, it is a spectacular location for a visit!

While visiting Tahiti with a guide, he took us to the "Relais de la Maroto" for lunch. You are right in the middle of the island, surronding by rain forest and polynesian mountains - it is a unique place. Being in Tahiti, I chose the local speciality, the "Poisson cru à la Tahitienne", raw fish marinated in lime Juice and coconut milk - it was absolutely delicious! Don't miss it in case you make it up to the Relais de la Maroto. The staff was very friendly, this place is really authentic.

Lunched here on a 4 wheel drive tour. The views are amazing however the place is a little grotty and run down. The food was ok but expensive.
Service was very slow but we were told later they had some issues with electricity which may have resulted in the slow service. Apart from the view there is absolutely nothing about this place that I can recommend.

If you take the full day island tour, this is the only place you get to eat. considering that this is still good. I had vegetarian food.

The location is extraordinary but the perfect stop to eat and refresh on the Papeete Full Day Inner Island Tour. Although there's no other place to eat, the food is actually pretty good but it may not be what you expect. For instance, the fried chicken is more like an oven baked fillet with a tereyaki type sauce as opposed to the crisp, flaky golden brown deep fried that you'd expect. On the other hand, the chicken salad is a regular garden salad topped with crispy deep fried golden nuggets which is definitely not what you'd expect, especially if you're one of those folks looking for something that contributes to a healty diet. Nevertheless, both were very good. Just different. If I thought I could get to it again, I'd definitely go back even though it's a bit on the expensive side.
