Watch the sunset beyond the harbour and then eat at one of the Roulottes (food vans). Each roulotte sets outs its tables and plastic stools. They specialise in food types, Hamburger and sausage, steak and hamburger, Chinese, Breton crepes, and fish. If you like fish and your partner prefers crepe choose where you want to sit and the loser can... More

We ate more at Roulottes than anywhere else while my wife and I were in Tahiti. It's what the locals do, so why not!? Unfortunately what you'll find is, even at bigger Roulottes, food tend to repeat themselves after a while, but fortunately, we have yet to find anything we didn't like, even if eating the same food multiple times!

Nothing can be better than eating dinner under the stars. The Roulottes provided so many meal choices you can visit every night of your holiday and try something different every time.

Take the kids, bring their skateboards and eat every thing from chow mien, Tahitian fish salad, hamburgers and French crepes to spit roasted veal and watch all of Papeete enjoy the evening on the waterfront. Sometimes there is a free concert and sometimes there are break dancers and it's always fun just to people watch. Maybe you'll get lucky and... More

It's a must to if you are in TAhiti. Tons of local food fare options and it's a great place to visit locals and enjoy a bit of their ambience. It's all relatively cheap...I wish I could have gone back another couple of nights as there are just too many options and seemingly hundreds of food trucks. People are very... More

A must do when in Tahiti. There is a lot to choose from but I loved the steak and fries with Garlic butter and Blue Cheese sauce. It also had a side of Raw fish and French bread. As you can see from the photos the portion sizes do not disappoint. On another visit we also tried the crepes which... More

Starting at 6 pm it is a lovely place to sit and sample the local food. The prices are typical for the city starting at 1100 French francs.

Going to the Roulettes was a really fun local vibe experience. It was tough to figure out what we were ordering but everything we ate was delicious!

We were just passing through the airport and wanted somewhere local or close-by to eat dinner. We read the recommendations and it did not disappoint. Good prices and a great variety of food. We paid approx 1800 XPF for a taxi from the airport to Papeete Roulottes which took about 10 min. The service at the local food stalls was... More
