Our first night on Moorea, we did not want to eat at our hotel (The Hilton...which is a great hotel!) but also wanted something very casual. We talked to the lady at the front desk who said that since we had a car, she recommended we go to Lucianos....casual dining, good food. She and her children eat there. She did warn us that he is a bit odd, but has great food. The only part that was odd was the owners signature loud Meow of a cat...funny if you expect it!
Upon arrival we were greated by a small location (five or six tables) and a staff who primarially speaks French and a French menu. (Not a problem....we don't speak French, but with a little looking, you can figure the menu out!)
My wife can not eat cheese, so we said "san Fromagge" and he happily repeated back "no cheese" The pizzas were great, the deserts were yummy, and this casual location met all our needs. We would not have hesitated to go back...just never had the time. Actually, I would like to have a pizza from there right now.
Cash only...make sure you have XPF.
The staff was very friendly, asked several times if the food was good....and it was! The waitress even tried to help me figure out how to turn off the crazy dashboard lights on our rental car!
