Snack Mahana was quite tasty and overall a solid dining experience. It didn't satisfy the rave reviews that some people had written but it was nevertheless quite good. The best part of the meal was actually their desserts which were absolutely stupendous.

Snack Mahana was a first place where we ate in French Polynesia. And it set bar for us very high. We had lunch here in March on Saturday. We came at 11:40 (they open 11:30) and place was already full or reserved, but they have one table up front. All tables are outside near the ocean, we didn't have ocean... More

20 min walk from intercontinental. Took 1 hour to get served. Count on 2 hours for excursion. Waterside dining a plus. Poussain Crüe with shrimp a little too raw for my taste. Smoking allowed a negative.

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!!
