We spent two weeks in Bora Bora, Moorea and Tikehau and Snack Mahana was easily the best lunch we had anywhere, including the resorts we stayed at. And it's the perfect antidote to resort-overload both in terms of atmosphere and price. We ate here two days in a row for lunch (including a day we drove the entire island). We... More

I took the recommendations for Snack Mahana from the TripAdvisor board, and stopped out mid-afternoon on a bright sunny day before a helmet dive activity nearby and it was really amazing. After sitting in the back and getting a menu, I was stuck between a few choices of stuff I could find close to home and a dish or two... More

Snack Mahana opens at 11:00 am but we were there at 10:40 am and they told us that we can wait and enjoy the view while waiting for our orders. This place is very casual but with a great ocean view. Family run business and Tahtitian hospitality at its finest. Best meal I had in 4 days in Moorea. Poisson... More

I would definitely recommend visiting here! We decided to hit up this spot based on trip advisor reviews and we were so happy we did! We ordered the grilled mahi and the breaded mahi and loved both!! The food was great and the casual setting was relaxing after hiking the Magic Mountain. Expect slow service but stay patient and enjoy... More

One of the best meals we had the whole 11 days we were in Moorea and Bora Bora!!! We had the garlic shrimp and curry shrimp! They were extremely crowded so we knew it must be good!!! It was excellent! We sat near the water and say a ray swimming by! Excellent food! A little under staffed or shall I... More

I was visiting this place after a recommendation from the staff of IC. The place looked small and cousy, well, until this lady came out barking us to leave the place (full booked apparently). Just schocking. Some people in Moorea should exercise a little bit of manners, it would make the experience much more rewarding.

Some locals recommended this spot as the best lunch on the island, so we rented a fiat and drove over to snack mahana. It had an oceanside, relaxed, local feel to it. Service took forever, like literally, a snail pace. but they were friendly and served with a smile. I ordered the shrimp with garlic rice. very yummy. my hubby... More

Snack Mahana is open for lunch--not dinner. So, I went for a large lunch instead & was not disappointed! My husband & I sat out at an outdoor area on the ocean front. We both ordered the Mahi Mahi with green pepper sauce & either rice or fries. It was so delicious! Good portions,very tasty & fresh! Also very affordable... More

Service was leisurely, which we expected, but we didn't expect such a challenge finding something to eat! I don't eat fish so after perusing the almost-exclusively seafood menu ordered a hamburger. So sorry, no hamburgers or cheeseburgers. How about the Chinese noodles? Sorry, no Chinese noodles. The only thing left was the chef's salad - how about that? Well, maybe.... More

The strong local favourite for lunch. It's been recommended by the taxi drivers, dive leader, car rental agency. We stuck to the cold dishes with the raw prawns and tuna carpaccio. Both great. The setting by the sea was lovely and if had a homely feel. Five stars for value for money.
