The place to visit in Moorea

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.

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

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

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
