Tel: 689 570 749's insider take:

Located off the beaten track in the Taravao district, at the isthmus connecting Tahiti Nui to Tahiti Iti, this small, cash-only restaurant is part of a humble four-bungalow pension. The French–Vietnamese owner, Jeannine Letivier, specializes in shellfish prepared in Vietnamese-fusion style; you can get fish or shrimp prepared at least seven different ways, from mild to spicy to mouth-in-flames. Call ahead to reserve a table, which can require a bit of finessing; flattery about the cooking seems to be the best way to go.
