Nimi on muuttunut ja on nykyään Yacht Club. Sijaitsee Faressa kauppakadun päässä (lentokentän puoleisessa) kulmassa rannassa. Saaren paras ruoka! Kohtuu hintainen. Meren antimia loistava valikoima ja hyviä pihvejä. Kannatta käydä! The name has changed and it's Yacht Club nowadays. You can find the restaurant at the corner on main street Fare (from airport side) seafronts. Best food on island! Many... More

The sign outside this restaurant reads “Huahine Yacht Club.” Despite the pompous name, this is a great place to relax during the nightly happy hour and have a delicious meal later on. The outside tables have a fantastic view of the famous mountain formation that looks like a reclining pregnant woman. We started with mai tai cocktails, which turned out... More

Do you want to eat authentic Tahitian food and other delights at a restaurant 15 feet from the south Pacific? Do you want to see the most incredible sunsets ever? Do you want totally fresh fish? Do you want to pay a price that would be laughable in the US? I mean , for instance, a dinner of fresh tuna... More

We ate here on our last night in Huahine and had a lot of fun - in part because the Mai Tais actually had a decent amount of alcohol them and we were hammered pretty quickly. The place is as laid back as all of Huahine and we met a lot of locals right off the bat - always fun!... More

After our first day diving, we were famished and went looking for New Tamarara restaurant which we'd read about about Trip Advisor. After having some trouble finding it, a local told us that it is now the Huahine Yacht Club. Not sure which restaurant joined which but anyways this place was very nice and authentic, located right by the water... More

Ate here several times on our stay. I had the sashimi, tuna tartare, and poisson cru.The fish was always nice and fresh and the service good. My friends also had the sole and mahi mahi with pepper sauce both enjoyed their meals and a couple of ice cold hinano's. Our average bill was around 3000 francs ($36 Australian dollars) each...

Enjoyed a fish dinner here one evening. Rustic spot that feels genuinely French Polynesian. Friendly staff and good food. stopped in for a couple of drinks on another occasion. Recommended for a local experience.

Description
New Tamarara is located on the island of Huahine. Here is the review I was going to post: Located walking distance from Hotel Maitai Lapita along the waterfront promenade, just outside of the village of Fare, this is a must for sunset cocktails and/or dinner. Watch the sailboats bob in the harbor as the sun sets over Raiatea, or tuck into some fresh mahi mahi (made a multitude of ways; if you were hoping to order one of the other types of fish on the menu, be prepared for them to be out of it and suggest the mahi mahi). Portions are large, prices are moderate, and service comes with a huge smile and lots of laughs.
