Best meal in Moorea

We stopped here for lunch the day we rented an ATV to drive through the island, and it ended up being the best meal we had in Moorea. The seafood was so fresh, even the french fries were the best I've had in awhile. It's not a fancy place, but it has a great local vibe, and the views are... read more

We visited Snack Mahana about 3 years ago and was very pleased with the food. We decided to go back with some friends and it didn't disappoint. They are only open for lunch and you need a booking or else get there early, otherwise you will be waiting a long time for service. Great setting by the water under the... More

We had a lot of people mention to us to try this place for lunch, I had read a lot of reviews as to giving it a try. This isn't a place that you can walk to from any hotel really its closet to the hilton but not really walking distance so the only way here is car rental or... More

This place was highly recommended by the person who picked me up from the ferry to my hotel at intercontinental hotel. It was the first resto I tried in Moorea and it didn't disappoint. I tried their grilled mahi mahi with the classic hinano beer and ended with coconut ice cream. It was mano mano. The fish was fresh and... More

We decided to stop at Snack Mahana on the recommendation of the Sofitel Ia Ora concierge (Luisa), as well as a second-hand recommendation from a couple at the hotel who had taken an ATV tour & had their guide recommend Snack Mahana as well. We were told it was a spot where the locals go. We had rented a Moorea... More

Went here for lunch, we had a hamburger and fish burger with fries. All was tasty, with a Hinano Amber beer. You set under a giant grape tree right on the water. Very popular and crowded. Go early for prime tables(hrs 11:00-3:00). Prices, of course, are more than you would like, but worth it. Waiters seemed overworked, testy, but food... More

The wait is sometimes a little bit long but it's worth. The poisson cru is huge and delicious, among the best on all the island. We go there for lunch each time we go on moorea.

The only place i ate twice at whilst in Moorea. Had the shrimp with garlic, grilled tuna steak. Super Fresh and flavorful. Lovely sea view atmosphere. Unpretentious little place. Great vanilla bean ice cream too.
