Paul Gauguin Dining
The formal restaurant L'Etoile, open only for dinner, offers French-inspired cuisine with a dash of Polynesian flair. For breakfast and lunch, you either order off the menu or make your selections from the extensive international lunch buffet in La Veranda. A limited
breakfast is available in La Palette Lounge. Tea is also served in La Veranda or La Palette Lounge, where seating is available indoors or on the adjacent deck. In the evening, La Veranda is transformed into an elegant, reservation-only dining venue featuring a menu showcasing the culinary creations of Jean-Pierre Vigato, of the restaurant Apicius in Paris. Le Grill is a more casual alfresco dining experience, where a breakfast buffet is served and lunch includes a choice of grilled favorites, salads, fresh tropical fruits, and international dishes. Dinner by reservation at Le Grill features Polynesian specialties in a relaxed atmosphere. While reservations are required for alternative dinner options, there is no surcharge. Complimentary wines chosen to complement the menu are freely poured at lunch and dinner. Room service is available around the clock, and select items from the L'Etoile menu can be ordered during dinner hours for in-room dining.
