Maybe it's because we're Asian, but we were ripped off by this harlot. I'm not sure how she's getting all of these great reviews, but our experience was horrible. First, she BSs about how her ice cream is homemade as she takes out a container of supermarket ice cream. Second, she scrapes out the ice cream and sorbet, and says... More

What a surprise to read your message, I do not understand all your anger about me. You came with your family I explained you that I just opened the café and that I will be happy to cook for you even if it was early. You ordered ice cream 2 scoops for about 6 people and one drink that's fine... More

Absolutely delicious! We heard great things on this spot and since my husband and I were staying at the Hilton we had to give it a try. Its a quick 5-10 minute walk from the hotel, as soon as you leave the hotel you make a right and keep walking straight. you'll bump into it on the left side of... More

Dinner at Liylkoi ended a perfect day on Moorea for two Aussie visitors. Her truck is discretely located down a drive nearly opposite a beautiful beach where her cheerful presence gives you confidence to not look beyond her specials. Today it was coconut prawns with rice accompanied by breadfruit ( from across the fence) made into chips, followed by lemon... More

Thank goodness we read about this place before we came to Moorea! We decided to try this cafe for lunch, and ended up eating here 3 days in a row. The owner is so nice, with a great story. Also, the food was absolutely delicious and great "bang for your buck". We were tired of paying for overpriced sandwiches at... More

What a wonderful place so glad we found you and I got my fix of Le thon. It was exquisite . We only just made the ferry. Definitely coming back here again. The kids said it was the best panini they have ever eaten. Let me know when your English cookbook is up and running. We will meet again.

We saw the sign during a walk from the hilton, then went back for lunch. Next day too, then dinner. Superb food prepared by Laurence with the passion of a gourmet chef. Highly recommend this when you are in Moorea. Yes, she speaks English too!

The owner, Laurence, is a sweet French lady who has her small food truck parked in her garden. This is our 3rd visit to her place. She prepares fresh Panini's and they are affordably priced compared to the Hilton's food prices. She also has free Wifi. She used to offer dinner on Friday nights, but I believe she now has... More

We ate here for a change from the Hilton recently. Owner was so accommodating and fun to talk to. Food was good...recommend asking for burger to be med well to well. No room for dessert but loved the experience. Definitely worth the short walk from the Hilton! Say hello to pokey the cat :-)

Walked to the restaurant from the Hilton - and enjoyed a wonderful meal of marinated chicken and breadfruit with coconut milk dipping sauce. Delicious. We also enjoyed the homemade mango ice cream for dessert. Everything is fresh. A must to visit if you are staying at the Hilton - just a short walk.
