Restaurant at Royal Tahitien

The food is a delightful mix of local and international cuisine and highlights many local ingredients. Weekend evenings provide a lively atmosphere with performances by local bands and dancers.
Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
The Royal Tahitien is a solid choice for budget accommodation near downtown Papeete. The rooms are simple and clean, with a retro-sixties style. We love the well-kept gardens and koi ponds, friendly, helpful staff and delightful restaurant. The black-sand beach is not really the best spot for swimming and lounging, but the sound of the waves certainly adds to the Polynesian ambience when sipping a well-mixed cocktail at the hotel bar.
