We recently returned from two weeks in FP. We spent three nights at the Intercontinental Moorea. We had read the Trip Advisor reviews and put this place on our must-do list. Eating at the ICM was very expensive and not very good, so we ate out nearly every meal. We rode bikes from the resort which was fun although we... More

The word from the locals was that this place was the perfect place to stop for lunch. We started with freshly squeezed pineapple juice which was absolutely delicious. I had tuna carpaccio which was served with fluffy white rice and French bread. I was totally blown away with how fresh and flavorful the tuna tartare was prepared. It had just... More

This place is beautiful. You eat on tables placed under a huge tree right beside the ocean. We had burgers that were delicious!!! It took them about 45 minutes to take our order, and another 30 minutes to prepare it. We enjoyed a Hinano, and the ocean breeze while waiting. Do not arrive starving, and do not get in a... More

This was the first restaurant we went to on island and boy was it great. I had the mahi mahi and my husband has the steak entree. Both dishes we perfectly cooked and all consumed... Service was great and couldn't have asked for a better view. Not to mention prices were reasonable. Also, the bathroom was very clean. We stayed... More

The food at this place is AMAZING! I had Poisson Cru at Snack Mahana as well as the Sofitel, this way better than Sofitel! We visited this place twice, the first time was a lengthy stay, but it didn't matter, we were on vacation and just enjoying our time on the island. The second time we were on a time... More

Know that the hours of operation are short by US standards. 11:30 - 3 Plus it gets crowded very quickly because the food is so good. Dont go there expecting a quick meal. Service is very relaxed. Try the TUNA!! Its amazing

I had the mahi mahi and it was delish. The view is amazing, there was a person fishing nearby while we ate. All of our food was awesome! This is one place I would go back and eat over and over again!! They close at 2:00 so make sure you make it! Not expensive at all.
