Food was excellent! I had the grilled mahi and it was the best I've ever had. The seasoning and sauce were awesome. My husband had the tuna burger which was delicious as well. Don't miss out on this place!

Great location and the best seafood on the Island. The girls are fabulous with their attention to detail and welcoming you into their house and garden. Everyone tells you that you have to visit the Snack Mahana, both visitors and locals alike. We had lunch sat under a tree in the shade in the garden overlooking the reef. Enjoy yourself... More

This place was absolutely amazing! We made the 2.5 mi round trip walk from our hotel (ICH) twice to eat here. It's open from 11-3 and it gets busy/they run out of fish. The first day we got there at around 1:00. There weren't any tables available outside & we didn't know that you could make reservations (apparently this is... More

We first heard of this place through TripAdvisor. We then heard about it again from a local who said it was his favorite spot. Everyone was right! We ate there twice and both times, it was amazing. Just make sure you get there when they open (about noon) as they do run out of food. We got there at 2pm... More

Snack Mahana was a short walk from out hotel. The food was delicious (fish burger for one of us, steak for the other) and well priced relative to the rest of the island. Ask for a table right on the water! (however all tables will have great view)

I read several positive reviews and our group of 9 was staying nearby, so let everyone know to consider trying it. Our son, his wife and little girl decided to walk one day and found the heat was more than expected. They came across Snack Mahana and remembered it was supposed to be good. Pouring sweat and very parched, they... More

Based on the favorable reviews of Snack Mahana on Trip Advisor my wife and I made it a point to stop there on our day with a rental car in Moorea and we were not disappointed. The place has a feel of someone who had cooked many of the same meals for their family and finally created a gathering place... More

My husband and I enjoyed a treat when stopping here. We biked from the Intercontinental. We were seated promptly at a table right over the water (we could see many beautiful fish swim by) and served cold water and I had the grilled mahi mahi with the best french fries ever, even the dipping sauce was great, and my husband...
