It was really cool to be eating crepes over the water and seeing black tip reef sharks below. They turn on the lights to attract the sharks and throw a few snacks to keep them around. A great experience!

I am not big on crepes, but after having the crepes here it changed my mind. We had a dinner crepe and a dessert crepe. Right below us was sharks that would come out at night, it was spectacular.

Is this a casual restaurant? Are shorts and covered beachwear ok for an early dinner with children?

Absolutely! Very casual, actually saw couple with strollers enjoying dinner with their kids one night while we were there. You are outside, open air atmosphere, very casual. No worries.
Is there a way to make reservations before arriving to the resort?

Response from Maayan H | Reviewed this property |
Yes you can call or even email them, but they are not that busy usually, just drop in.
We are staying at Moorea Pearl- how do we get there? Do you offer pick up and drop off?
