"First stop Papeete on the harbor; in a little bar downtown; with a cold Hinano beer". Singer/ Songwriter Jim Morris

I picked Cafe Verde to represent the above line in the song, "Here today; Fiji tomorrow".. It is a pleasant open air cafe on the harbor in Papeete. A good place to rest and cool off while exploring Papeete. Enjoy the Hinano beer!🍺

Right on the waterfront along the Main Street in town this cafe is a handy place to stop for lunch. The setting is quite noisy understandably but there is plenty of shade and the food came out promptly. The meal itself was not great but not bad just middle of the road and the usual Papeete prices, the menus seem... More

This is a great stop to rest a bit if you're walking around Papeete. It is small and most of the seating is outside but right on a busy street so there's noise and congestion. There are a few tables inside but it is very cramped with no air conditioning. There was a fan circulating a bit of air but... More

This is a very discrete restaurant near a main avenue in Papeete. The staff was very friendly and the food was good, although the risotto had a little more pepper than necessary. The deserts were especially nice. The only negative point was the price, the food was way too expensive for the quality served.

• Nice small coffee shop in the heart of Papeete • Modern, trendy and funny interior (lots of funny posters on the walls) • Friendly staff • Food is very good, in particular the dessert was excellent • Only negative point: from your table you can see the kitchen and it looks a bit chaotic and not very clean. •...

My husband and I stopped by for a lunch salad and were very impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the wholesome dressings and breads that came with the salad. The staff were super friendly and even recommended a good restaurant that we might like for that evening, and drew a map of how to get there!
