The food was surprisingly good at this little cafe restaurant. We rented a dune buggy from the Mo'orea Hilton and drove west. A little while up the road, we ran into Le Petit Village and all its assorted little shops. The place was a ghost town. The Club Med across the street closed down a few years ago, and I don't think the business here ever recovered. Nevertheless, this little cafe caught our eye, and we walked in. We went to the bar and asked the young woman if they were serving food (it was just after 4PM). She was happy to offer us a seat and pass us menus and an ashtray. It wasn't upscale, and it was surrounded by tourist shops. But, if you've never been to a Cheeseburger In Paradise, then you would think that this is the place where the idea of cheeseburger in paradise was born. They had a full bar, but we just ordered a beer and a coke (I had to drive). It was one of those thick, reusable glass bottles of coke that you are expected to return after you're done with it. The beer was the standard local brew, Hinano, and the moules frites surprisingly makes for decent comfort food. We noticed the menu was loaded with French and Polynesian cuisine, but we wanted to try a burger. The fries were soft and crispy at the same time, and the burger wasn't just tossed into a bun--it was clear that this sandwich was made with great care as to its presentation. You could easily spend an afternoon laying back, sipping drinks and passing time at this little place.
