Fodor's Review

This romantic restaurant on the edge of the lagoon is perfect for a special night out. The outdoor dining area is a series of small dining nooks within a circular terrace facing a lovely garden. It's especially beautiful at night, dining by candlelight listening to the gentle lap of waves. Dishes such as duck magret (lean duck breast) and honey sauce, and beef filet a la Rossini (topped with hot foie gras) are served on lovely painted plates. It's an expensive

night out, but there are two- and three-course set menus at lunchtime, which go a little easier on the wallet.

Le Coco's Review

This lagoonside restaurant is a very romantic place to dine and has a gorgeous look at Moorea. This moonlit night was marvelous. However, the good experience ends there. A very overpriced menu begins the downward slide, followed by very poor service followed by pretentious food that was all show with no substance. It's like the little train who huffed and puffed but in this case did not make it. The maitre di/manager and the waiter extolled the virtues

of their establishment but did not know what was on the seven course fixed-price \"at the humor of the chef\" menu nor could they describe the five wines on their recommended wine pairings. I got the feeling that it was all \"catch as catch can\" at a price per person of euro 199 for food and 79 for wine. They need to train the staff, all of them. This experience reminded me of France in the 1960's and 70's when the tourist were treated with disdain by the French. By the way, the manager and waiter were French. It was a Saturday night with only four of more than sixteen tables (12 people)occupied during the 2 and a half hours my wife and I were there. So sad, we wanted Le Coco's to be wonderful and it failed miserably.
