Would probably be the best restaurant in Moorea, way ahead of the Mayflower! Went there for lunch and had a wonderful afternoon with friends whilst on holiday from nz. Not the flashiest of places but the good ones rarely are, right on the waters edge. Great service with Polynesian flare and fun. The local prawns are the signature dish which... More

While staying at the Hilton we rented a car and drove around Moorea and stopped for lunch at Snack Mahana as we had read reviews for it on Tripadvisor. Was well worth doing, location was great sitting outside under umbrellas, looking out over the lagoon. Staff were really friendly and helpful and food was great. We went for seafood and... More

First off there are not many places to eat in Moorea! So there is not a lot of comparison. But for what it is, this is a very good choice for lunch, nice garden, friendly staff and good food and service is rather quick. It is a very small place, but friendly. Food was good, but not amazing, I had... More

Restaurant is right beside the sea so it is a great location as a starter but also follows through with super fresh and tasty seafood including the local farmed prawns yum

A little garden by the sea, very friendly staff, delicious food. We had fish with vanilla sauce, a burger, a salad and dessert. Everything was excellent and served generously. The service is not very quick, but it's normal for a small family business that gets very crowded. Only thing to keep in mind : avoid it when it's windy. Otherwise,... More

My wife and I ate in a few different places here in Moorea. We are both from the U.S, so we are used to food establishments being a certain way. We came here due to tripadvisor reviews. It’s not too hard to find. I suggest looking for a wooden sign with white painted letters and not too far from the... More

Let me say I was very frustrated when first sitting down here. It was at least 15 minutes between seating and someone approaching the table. I think there were only two waitresses covering at least 15 tables, so they were stretched pretty thin. That said, they definitely were trying to accommodate all of the folks there and the environment (sitting... More

Highly recommended for anyone staying at Intercontinental. It's a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Also recommended even if you aren't staying there, it's really good! This little cafe/restaurant is a gem. doesn't look like much from the outside but it's by the water in a little garden in the back. The food is awesome. After eating tuna for 5... More

Snack Mahana is the lunch spot not to miss on Moorea. It's low key environment with some of the freshest and tastiest food in FP should not be missed. Get there by 12:30 or risk the Tuna being sold out, Only open from 11:30-2pm
