As with any food truck there is some degree of uncleanliness that you can overlook. For the most part all of these truck are clean and safe to eat from. We didn't see any that were questionable and were fine the next morning. We bought from 3 different trucks and got steak frites, chow mien, and chicken and rice. Everything... More

Great dining experience at the Papeete waterfront. All the roulottes are in one area so you can walk around and sample something from many different, or sit and have a full meal at one. French, Chinese, pizza, burgers, there's something for everyone and at fairly reasonable prices. It's clean and well-lit and most have wait staff. Learn a bit of... More

What a great idea! In expensive French Polynesia this is definitely a good option for a less expensive evening meal out. Al fresco eating on Papeete waterfront from food carts/vans, cooked to order. Local, Chinese, burger type cuisine all available with tables set out for eating. Very family friendly and no reason to doubt hygiene standards. The whole place produced... More

Huge variety of food all in one place. Chinese, French, burgers, pizza, you name it and you can probably find it. Located at at the main port so it's convenient if you're staying in town. Most have tables set up like a restaurant and someone to take your order. We've tried several different trucks with food ranging from so-so to... More

We spent 4 days in Papeete before a cruise and we ate here every night. We ate in some of the local spots for lunch and the food seemed a little pricey. Once we discovered the roulottes, dinner was taken care of every night! Wonderful fresh food, great prices, just about anything you could want right here on the plaza!... More

2nd trip back to Tahiti in a year and a visit to the Food Vans or Roulottes down by the Wharf. It seemed a lot more expensive this year. It's a nice novelty option for Tourists, but really it's not much different price wise to eat in a nice Restaurant with cleaner surroundings and real knives and forks. Foods fine... More
