Very Pleased, hit the spot !!!!

My wife and I were told about this place by a local American lady and we are so glad she did. We liked the setting and the ambiance. The food was great. My wife had the fish burger and fries, I had the veggie burger with fries and we topped it off with chocolate cake and a coffee. Laurence (... read more

We walked down to this place from the Hilton and had lunch one day and found out how small the world really is. The owner and her husband had previously lived in our hometown, Austin, TX. Give it a try.

Loved visiting this little eatery while staying at the Hilton on honeymoon last month. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is great. Prices are very reasonable and I'd highly recommend going here at least once if you're staying at the Hilton. Good vegetarian options as well as meat and fish. You must try the rum and pineapple...

This was the only eatery within walking distance from our resort, so we went a couple times for lunch and it was a nice change of pace from the more expensive options that are available. The woman who runs this cafe speaks several languages, and serves up simple yet delicious dishes. The sandwiches were great, but what we still remember... More

What a great little place for lunch. We stayed at the Hilton which is only a 5 minute walk from Lilikoi. Make a right when you come out of the resort and it will be on your left. The owner is so sweet and friendly and we loved hearing her story about how she came to Moorea on vacation and... More

A lovely Polynesian food truck located in a coconut grove. A 5 minute walk from the Hilton hotel. We had the panninis which we could have split. I had the home made ice tea which was good. Open for lunch every day and dinner on Friday's. Cash only. Not bad price for Tahiti. She gets all her veg from local... More

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.
