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

We stayed at the Hilton and ate here for lunch three days in a row. It is a five minute walk from the Hilton and there is a sign you can clearly see from the road. The sandwiches and paninis averaged from XPF 500 to 700 so a nice change in prices from the Hilton. My favorite was the Mountain... More

We also stayed at the Hilton and wanted to explore other food options. Another couple had stumbled on this cute little roadside "restaurant" and recommended it for lunch. It was a nice change from the Hilton heavy and expensive food. We had delicious french baguette sandwiches and her homemade lemonade. (Very subtle. Not too sweet.) It was just what we... More

Make a right out of the Hilton, walk 2 minutes and you will see this place on your left. This place was a nice change up for lunch. The Mahi Mahi tasted amazingly fresh and the portions were generous. I highly recommend you checking this place out and save some $$$ over the crazy Hilton prices. BRING BUG SPRAY!

We had lunch at Lilikoi 4 of the 5 days that we stayed at the Hilton. Laurence is very nice, entertaining and helpful on local recommendations. The food was great and very reasonable for the high quality. Everything is very fresh with ingredients picked out of her garden and put right into your dish. The homemade ice cream and iced... More

We loved Lilikoi, which is walking distance from the Hilton (turn right out of the resort, walk about 3-5 minutes and it's on your left. You'll see signs, it's just beyond the first house you see). Laurence, the owner, is the sweetest person and the food is very well priced. All of the reviews say to bring bug spray, and... More

It's a great little owner restaurant in walking distance to Hilton Moorea, where you find good food and great owner to talk to. She organizes local hiking trips on thursdays. She was a big help with our own trip to Belwedere look-out, too. Also she loves and saves the dogs on the street, so has a big heart. Enjoy

If you are looking for a five-star experience, you will surely be disappointed; however, if you are looking for filling, local cuisine, at a very reasonable price compared to other places on the island, this is your place. The owner, Laurence, is very sweet and endearing. Her garden is charming and quaint. This is considered outdoor dining so bug spray... More

Leaving the Hilton take a right and walk for 3 minutes and the spot is on your left. Bring bug spray as the flies and mosquitoes are dense this far from the beach. The food is simple and the tasty. The most expensive things on the menu are no more than about $20 which is a nice change compared to... More
