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

Laurence is very welcoming and her food is very flavoursome. Very close to Hilton. She can alter dishes to individual requirements! Also provides bug spray...however if bugs are a problem lunch visit maybe be recommended with something off the menu for takeout dinner if you please! Also has wifi!

We were staying at the Hilton and walked to the Lillikoi Garden Cafe one evening for dinner. We had a lovely experience, with a warm welcome from the proprietor/chef lady who chatted to us about where we were from etc, and then a lovely meal which was freshly prepared and a welcome cheaper alternative to hotel food. While we were... More

We stayed at the Hilton for 11 nights but unfortunately Lilikoi was closed as the owner was on holiday and it only opened up for our last two days, where we went for our lunch. Lovely fresh simple food at very reasonable prices

The food was good and the lady that runs it is really sweet. It's just a short walk from the Hilton. We ate there twice and good both times.
