This place had a lot of good things going for it. Mind you the breakfast was free for me since I was staying at the resort and had Gold Status. But even then, I would still have eaten here a few days during my stay if it wasn't free. Great selection of breads, fruits (the local grape fruit is so... More

We ate dinner once while staying at the Hilton, and the service was terrible. My husband was brought the wrong meal and he had to leave the restaurant to go to the bar to get another drink. Less than attentive waitress would be a compliment. We were so happy when dinner was over.

This restaurant is on the Hilton property and serves breakfast and dinner. This review is for dinner only. Meant to be the upscale option on this sad excuse for a resort property; the service is slow, fragmented and quite frankly underwhelming. The food is bland and uninspiring while none of the courses arrived simultaneously for my dining partner and me.... More

This is where the hotel serves daily american hot breakfast. Breakfast is good and a good place to start your day with the breathe taking view of the overwater bungalows.

We ate here every day for breakfast. They have a combination of local, American and European fare. Eating fish for breakfast everyday is not something I do here in the states, but I did it everyday in Moorea and loved it. They served real porridge, sausage, bacon, all the normal American fare plus fish both cooked and raw, rice, fruits,... More

We loved have the Arii Vahine right on-site. We enjoyed new brunch options each morning and a wonderful buffet at night. When we asked our travel agent, True Tahiti Vacation, where we could see the best Tahitian dance show, Hilton-Arii Vahine was her immediate response. We booked early and got a great table in front. Enjoyed our buffet dinner and... More
