If you're staying at the Hilton in Moorea this little cafe is really the only place within walking distance for lunch. We had a good meal here with generous portions. It wasn't as affordable as I was expecting, I think our entrees and drinks ended up being about 40 USD give or take. We also had the smoothies and they... More

We visited everyday! It actually rained on us. It's outside in the yard There wasn't much shelter but it was worth it! Laurence and her staff"s conversation is well worth it. We are simple people and love the simple things. We don't need all that fancy stuff that some people need.

Laurence, visionary and head chef at Lilikoi Garden Café, one of Moore's local treasures. She and her crew did ALL the catering for our (100 person!) wedding on Moorea, including both a welcoming dinner and an amazing tasting menu brunch on a remote property location. Laurence approached the whole thing with so much grace and humor, not a note of... More

We LOVED it here. Food? Simple flavours combined with real talent equalling amazing results. Goats cheese and honey panini was lovely. And the daily home made desserts were incredible. Setting? Beautiful, amongst their own beautiful garden, where a lot of their ingredients originate. Staff? Lovely. Just lovely. They are so friendly, and great sources of information about moorea.

We were staying at the Hilton and wanted to get off the property for lunch and dinner. The Lilikoi is just ½ km up the road (turn right on the main road as you exit the resort and look for the sign on the other side of the street) and is just lovely. Offerings include fresh juices and smoothies, tapas,... More

First, I want to say that I admire anyone who is a self starter because I know the work it takes to have your own business. I don't blame the young owner but I can't figure out the raving reviews. The restaurant is about 5-10 minute walk from the Hilton. We almost missed the entrance because it's down a short... More

I like my café like it is: simple with great fresh food, sorry if it did not pleased you. Sorry if you met our puppies they are now big enough to be attached during services. Some people will always prefer the Hilton food, no problem with that there is place for all different choices!! More

Laurence is a very nice welcoming person and she does great cooking. A must to visit her "roulotte". However, make sure to plan a visit only when there is good weather.

Visited in November loved the food and it was reasonably priced. Would highly recommend to all. The food truck is just down the road from the Hilton so that's a bonus. Can't wait to go back!!!

This was our favorite hidden gem during our stay in Moorea. It is ride down the street from the Hilton, tucked away off the street, but after discovering this place and the good food at reasonable prices (something not common in Tahiti in general), we came back a few times. If you're looking for a good sandwich (or maybe some... More
