A dining experience not to be missed!

This place has the BEST poisson cru on the island! And the fries are awesome too! I stayed with locals and they agreed this was the place to go. Do not let its simple set up deter you from one of the best local fare restaurants on the island!

My husband and I went to Snack Mahana while on our honeymoon. We stayed at the Intercontinental Moorea and walked to the restaurant. It was a very safe walk and only took about 15 minutes each way. When we arrived, we didn't have high hopes based on the plastic chairs and tables, but we were pleasantly surprised. I had the... More

Great little place with plenty of island favorites situated right on the waters edge. Laid back charm with authentic family warmness makes this place stand out. Some of the best poisson cru to be found on Moorea. Shrimp dishes are also quite excellent and exceptionally fresh.

Had a delicious Mahi Mahi Pane with garden salad in place of French Fries and Heifara, the owner and chef, wanted me to tell all Tripadvisor members that she will be closed starting February 1st thru February 24, 2015, but will re-open February 25th.

We had the garlic shrimp and the grilled mahi mahi. Both dishes were very flavorful. Definitely one of the best meals we had in Moorea. Would highly recommend!!

Visited Moorea in December 2014 and Snack Mahana was our favorite place to eat. I had a fried mahi-mahi covered with coconut milk and french fries. My girlfriend had the grilled mahi also with french fries. Seating is right next to the ocean and service is tremendous. My girlfriend and I still mimic the lovely La Oranas that greet you... More

After spending five days in Moorea, I fairly represent that this is a MUST visit resturant. The tuna carpaccio was perhaps the best I have ever had. We were told that the fist was caught that morning. The service was friendly. This resturant is only open for lunch. Do not miss it!

The food here was great, with good prices for lunch. It is a fun local spot to eat with nice views of the ocean. They even were careful of shellfish allergies.

Every time we visit Moorea, we have lunch at this establishment. The food is outstanding, but the owner and all the help there are more than just friendly, they have become friends. Three visits ago, Rocky the owners dog gave us added enjoyment as he sat quietly under our table waiting for a tidbit. Last time there, we learned that... More
