La petite auberge
This little restaurant a few blocks back from the cruise ship port has a rustic French ambience, with vases of fresh flowers everywhere and French and Tahitian ornaments and artwork adorning the walls. Shrimp in coconut milk and vanilla are a specialty, as are the desserts, which are homemade. Ask for le vacherin glace a la vanilla, a type of vanilla ice-cream which is divine. The friendly staff also speak English, which is a big bonus in Pape'ete.
