You should make time to eat here

Food was awesome and the ambiance was just as the locals described it. A family house with a back yard converted into the dining area. The back yard is literally right on the water and the food was really good. Met our expectations.

One of the best places to pickup food for the hungry traveler in Moorea! You can takeout or dine in their facility across from the Pearl.

We made 2 lunch visits, the first a walk-in, the second time we reserved a table. Both times the welcome felt sincere and the service and food were excellent. I agree that the staff probably gets a bit overwhelmed in the peak of the rush period, but we were never affected as we got our orders in just before. I... More

We got there a little early for lunch and got the best table (all are fine) right on the water. That is one meter.. Pretty, lively fish were swimming right in front of us. We ordered the 'plat du jour' and got a delicious fish with raw fresh salads. Service was very friendly. We are glad we stopped there. Petty... More

Stopped here after seeing it was the number 1 rated place on the island. Did not disappoint. Fish is fresh and the views are incredible.

It may not look like much but it's a nice little restaurant along the water near the Intercontinental Hotel in Moorea. We actually rented bikes from the hotel and rode there which took about 7 to 10 minutes. It's a very popular place so believe it or not reservations are recommended. We got there at 12:45 ands till didn't have... More

Very busy lunch spot with food that is quite good, both our burgers and Poisson Cru were tasty however you better have so time and a reservation as this spot is busy. Service isn't overly efficient or friendly but the food is good. The view is nice as well on the edge of the water.

Snack Mahana is truly a diamond in the rough! The restaurant is essentially a converted home on the beach. The main dining area is on the water under a number of trees for coverage. It is quaint and truly feels like you are getting a real taste of the island. I had the garlic shrimp and my husband had the... More

You cannot ask for a better local meal than at Snack Mahana. We have gone there each time we visited Moorea and were not disappointed once! My 10 year old son ordered the Poisson Cru (he is a picky eater, so we were a little nervous) and he ate it ALL! The mahi mahi had just been caught and delivered... More

Fantastic food and reasonably priced for the expensive island of Moorea. The prawn curry was fantastic and the steak the best my daughter has ever had.
