Worth it!

Sweet garden tables, yummy food, just on the water with a lovely view. A local favorite and easy to see why! We made a reservation through the hotel - it was packed and delicious. Burger and grilled mahi mahi both great. A must for lunch.

The food, atmosphere and experience are everything you want when visiting Moorea. Restaurant is only open for lunch and only takes CASH (US dollars included). You practically sit on the water which is wonderful. It did take the staff (all 2 of them) about 25 minutes to ask us if we'd like a drink and then another 15 or more... More

Went with my wife, on the way to the airport. We were slightly rushed for time and the food does take a fair while to come. But, it is good food and for the island and French Polynesia in general, the prices are good. Cheapest meal we had but really did enjoy it! If we were ever fortunate enough to... More

I agree with all of the previous accolades about the fantastic food and the wonderful view of the ocean. This was the first time I had ever eaten poisson cru and I must say that was just about the most delicious meal that I've had in some time. The serving was huge. We wanted to sample as many different eating... More

This place was excellent. We got one of the covered booths just outside the shade of the large tree. We had a clear view of the ocean from here. We found the service to be quite slow as it took quite awhile for the waiter to take our order. They were also out of a lot of items (including anything... More

We decided to rent a car from Albert's while waiting for our room to be ready at the Hilton Moorea. We asked a lady at the reception where we could go for lunch. We wanted local food. She recommended a couple of places and Snack Mahana was at the top of her list. So, my husband and I went there... More

Loved that you can sit by the shore. Though they have a large selection on the menu, only a very few options to choose from. Be prepared to wait for service.

Everything here is delicious. You must eat here while you are on the island, trust me on this! You don't want to miss out!

We had lunch here. Food was delicious, and quite reasonably priced (around $35 USD for two). We got a table next to the water, and it was amazing to watch the fish swim while you are eating. It was about a 15 minute walk from the Intercontinental, no need to take a cab.

Highly recommend it! Highlights: (1) The Fresh food; (2) The view; (3) The Service is great. Con: (1) Depending on the day and availability, they may run out of fish; (2) Cash only.
