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 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

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.
