Friendly service, tasty affordable food!

If you're staying at the Hilton Moorea, there is no reason you shouldn't pop off to the Lilikoi Garden cafe for lunch or perhaps dinner! Lauren is really sweet and chatty and cooks up some delicious meals that are well priced in comparison with the Hilton lunch offerings!

This was my Wife and my absolute favorite place to eat while we were on Moorea. It is a short 5 min walk from the Hilton and well worth it. We went almost every day, unless we had a day trip planned. Laurence is a fantastic chef and very fun to talk too. She makes to best Tuna that I... More

This was an interesting fun little place we happened to drive by when exploring Moorea on bikes. Give it a try, it is something you will not see many places. Went with the tuna burger and it was nice, all food are cooked on the spot with fresh ingredients.

My wife and I stayed at the nearby Hilton, and we were lured here by the reviews and the prices. Once was more than enough. The setting was OK, and the owner is very nice. But the food was not good. I got the special, which was a sandwich, and it had no condiments, just overcooked fish and pineapple. My... More

A quick 4 minute walk from the Hilton and my family and I arrived at this adorable little outdoor cafe. And by outdoor, I mean a food truck in the middle of the proprietor's side yard of her house. It simply couldn't be more charming, sitting at a picnic table under an umbrella, chatting with the owner while she whips... More

Oh my goodness! That was my initial reaction when we walked into the quaint little yard of the Lilikoi Garden Cafe. It is truly a special little place filled with trinkets, patio sets with umbrellas for shade, and a friendly cat roaming around looking for just a litttle bit attention. Had I known about this place earlier, I would have... More

We were staying at the Hilton and walked past it. After reading the reviews we decided to give it a try for lunch. We loved it so much we went back a second day. The food is fresh and delicious. The owner makes you feel at home. A definite stop if you are staying at the Hilton.
