Every night about 6pm, food trucks pull into a plaza just next to the main harbor (there were about 30 the night we were there in October.) They all have lights antables. The offer a good variety of food from around the world - Chinese, Thai, Barbeque, Fresh Seafood, etc.. Prices vary from $10-20 for different plates - menus in... More

This cosy French Polynesia island is what you have always dreamt of. Getting out the plane is a shock in temperature and humidity but little by little your body adjust to a new climate there. The people is always welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere is French and casual, the food is fresh and in good variety. Good memories back from... More

I used to live in Tahiti and as a local, I would definitely recommand it to everyone who comes to visit our Beautiful country! There's plenty of "Food van" that all offer a different variety of food so you have plenty of choices and what a better way to enjoy good local food than being in the outdoor, on the... More

Papeete, a 'hive of activity'...'A la francaise!' A bustling little town, depicting the 'heart & soul', of the Polynesian Islands! The town's 'throbbing & pulsating' heart, oozing 'friendliness & open-ness', to all it's visitors. 'Peace on Earth', in the middle of the Pacific ocean A definite 'MUST' for ANY down to earth traveller!.

Great cheap food, great people watching. This is where the locals are and everyone is having a great time. Worth the visit. If you are on a cruise ship and are there overnight - just walk over after dinner and get awesome crepes at Creperie du Port. Eating there when I can for the past 9 years.

Nearly every time I have arrived in Tahiti to visit my family there, we've come here after my arrival. Lots of trucks with great food. Place Vaiete is next to the cruise ship dock so though it seems to be set up for the tourist crowd, mostly it's patronized be locals. That's always a good sign! There is a bandstand... More

Just had dinner at the Roulottes (Chez Dominique) in Papeete and it was great! Fantastic selection and outdoor sitting in the evening was fantastic! Such a selection to choose from. I had Sashimi and my husband had grilled fish and a delightful bottle of cider. Would recommend anytime and cant wait to return - very soon!

Had an idea that these food vans were probably greasy burger joints but was pleasantly surprised! The quality of the beef steak and trimmings was quite good and the cleanliness of the tables beside them was of quite a good standard too. There were about 12 of these vans arranged in a rectangular and purposely serviced area beside the promenade... More

We came here for dinner for the last night of our trip. It was really nice to get out of the very touristy hotels and have an evening out among the very friendly locals. We had grilled Meka at Chez Romy. It was delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. If they had their own trip advisor I would ive them 5... More

My wife and I were in Papeete for 4 nights at the end of our trip and ate here the last 2. The roulettes were within walking distance of our hotel and we loved the atmosphere down there. They open at 6pm each night (even Sunday) and there is table service - with menus - at these little outdoor restaurants.... More
