The talented French Chef Valérie offers a French cuisine with Mediterranean and local influences.

Vahine Island has become a renowned place for exquisite food and certainly one of the best dining experiences in French Polynesia.

About the


Vahine’s Restaurant is simply styled, informal where you can eat in the shady, island-style interior or around tables overflowing
onto the sand under the coconut palms.

The decor blends plain wood and woven-leaf walls, with sliding doors opening onto the beach and tropical flowers and shells. It offers marvellous views of the lagoon and the islands around it!

Tahaa, Raiatea and Bora Bora.

About our
fresh products…


The type of cuisine is mostly Mediterranean French gourmet combined with as many local and organic products. Our fisherman arrives in the morning with fresh fish from the lagoon, lobsters are fished from the reef behind our island (sustainable fishing) and the fruits and vegetables come from the main island of Tahaa.

The Vahine Restaurant offers the most relaxing dining experience by the lagoon.

A typical day starts with a breakfast in total serenity, watching the flow of the turquoise blue lagoon. Breakfast is usually served indoors, starring local delicacies such as homemade yogurt with Tahaa vanilla, croissants, mango marmalade, omelets and tropical fruits.

Lunch is very relaxing, served at the beach with the feet in the sand. Enjoy airy outdoor lunches looking out over the lagoon, with “à la carte” dishes spanning from prawn and mango spring rolls with mint, rib eye or mahi mahi with papaya salad and “sauce vierge”, tuna tartare with pineapple, honey and soy (save some room for flambeed banana and caramel)

The authentic all-in-wood bar, open all day long, will welcome you in an exotic ambiance to enjoy a delicious local cocktail.

The day will then end up with the most awaited gourmet dinner. Guests will savor a succulent three-course menu, offering modern and creative cuisine, in a refined atmosphere.

Gourmet candlelight dinners with daily changing menu according to the fresh ingredients received early morning will be part of your Vahine experience.

Due to Vahine’s remote location, half-board is compulsory and full-board optional.

There is no room service as such, but your minibar comes stocked with a tempting mix of drinks and snacks (at extra cost)
