The Roulottes is one of the best places value for money in Papeete.Big selection of dishes and a pleasant location on the wharf.

Wide variety of types of food. Food was very good. A fun place to visit and a lot more for the money rather than at the hotels.

When you want a break from spending 10,000 XPF for dinner, you get more than you pay for [2,000 XPF] at the roulottes -- offering a variety of tasty foods in large portions. Our favorites were the steak frites -- large thin-cut steaks deliciously cooked-to-order with more fries than even our teenager could eat -- plus dessert from a crepe... More

Good eating, with lots of options but don't sit by the bushes and shrubs nearby if you don't want to see mice running around or peeking. lol Plan ahead as far as transformation. Somehow there were no taxis or busses by the time we were ready to go back to Intercontinental. But the Tahitians are such great people, we actually... More

loved the atmosphere here and the food! Wife and I tried a bit of BBQ swordfish and beef over grills right at our table and then some of the flatbread from another truck. Both really delicious!

Having eaten there on several occasions, I can honestly write that, for what it is -- i.e. food trucks with people essentially cooking in more-or-less camping conditions -- it is an outstanding place to catch a dinner at least once during your Papeete stay. Poisson Cru is fantastic, crepes are mouthwatering, the service is friendly and unassuming, and the price... More

Interesting ...well worth the experience. Good choice of dishes made on bbqs outside trucks. Tables and stools all set up. We chose chicken but should have had the tuna which looked excellent. Sweet crepes were really good. Only drawback our hotel was long way off and it cost us about $60 in taxi fares! Not worth it even for this... More

During our 2 week trip to Tahiti we went to downtown to the waterfront to eat at the Roulettes twice. It's great if you like Chinese, Chinese, Pizza, Crepes, Chinese, BBQ and Chinese! HA HA! Don't get me wrong if you like Chinese you will love your choices. We all do, so we walked up and down the rows of... More

You will find roulottes nearly everywhere in French Polynesia. They offer a fun alternative for satisfying a craving from pizza, bbq, panini to crepes. They are modestly priced and pop up around sunset along roadsides or quays.
