We stopped by here for dinner and are so glad we did. Great local hospitality. Relaxed garden atmosphere, delicious food especially the homemade ice cream and the lovely Laurence the owner was so friendly. It was a really nice travel experience.

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.

This place has wonderful ice cream! We walked from hilton (make right outside of hotel and walk 1/4 mile and it's on the left-walk down driveway and you will see the food truck on the left). My kids loved the mango ice cream and the coconut. We also tried a ham and cheese baguette. The prices are great, BUT bring... More

We ate here twice for lunch during our stay at the Hilton. Turn right when leaving the resort and you'll see a sign within a few minutes on your left. We ordered a panini each on both visits as they're very well priced. They were delicious and fresh. I also had a yummy freshly made ginger lemonade. I brought bug... More

I happened to find this place along the road and stopped for lunch. The food is decent and the prices are some of the best I found in all of Moorea. Friendly, English speaking staff. Plus they have free wifi and the food is served in a nice little garden. Great little spot!

We were very disappointed! It was a shack out of nowhere. The food was okay. We were attacked by mosquitoes. Don't do it.

Friends had heard about this little roulotte (food truck), and they were looking forward to trying it out. When our Windstar Cruise stopped in Moorea for the day, they rented a car and invited us to join them for lunch. Joe greeted us, took our order, and cooked our meals... which were delicious. Laurence and her daughters (and their cat)... More

This restaurant is walking distance from the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort. The owner is from France, and she has created a little garden spot with a food trailer in her yard. Plastic tables and chairs are set under the palm trees-the perfect island setting. The paninis are great. She makes her own ice cream and it is delicious. Dinner is... More

We rented a car and could eat anywhere but if you are staying at the Hilton and aren't renting a car this place is across the street. The prices are better than the hotel food and the quality is better. Win/win. Both the owner and the gentleman running the food truck were extremely friendly and I enjoyed the ginger lemonade.
