On our last evening we passed once again through Papeete. This was the perfect opportunity to one more time enjoy the food and atmosphere of the Roulottes. They are a must for every Tahiti visitor.

I was in Papeete for a couple of days after a cruise on the Paul Gauguin. The reviews for Les Roulottes were generally pretty good, so we ventured down to the square by the wharf where the trucks make a little food village. It's hard to choose which one to go to!!! There was a burger truck with high ratings... More

We stayed with a Tahitian family on out trip to FP. She took us here - we ordered the poisson cru and swordfish skewers. Rice and baguettes were provided as sides. Incredible authentic flavor for 2900xpf. We came back the following night to a full house. Got the Papio before it sold out. Another fabulous experience.

It is worth visiting the happening at the Place Vai'ete in the evening, but do not expect too much as regards the food. And if you do not have your own transportation, take into account that taxis in the evening might be very expensive - you will pay for the fare almost similar amount as for your dinner. Otherwise there... More

After hearing all the great reviews, my wife and I decided to give the food trucks a try our only night in Papeete. Besides being about 15 minutes away from our hotel (Tahiti Pearl), the overall experience of the food trucks was great. A variety of food, from pizza to Italian to the local cuisine. The atmosphere was great and... More

We were staying at a very beautiful hotel on our latest night in French Polynesia but decided to have dinner somewhere the locals would go. We asked at the hotel and they suggested Roulottes. So we go a taxi into town and discovered the area in question. It is a large concrete area on the harbour opposite the cruise ships.... More

Are you looking to try some local traditional Tahitian cuisine but are becoming concerned with astronomical prices of the resort food?! That was us, but on recommendation we headed to downtown Papeete and checked out the food trucks (fyi they don't start serving until after 6pm.) SO GOOD. My husband tried the local favourite: Poisson cru (raw fish marinated in... More

We found the roulottes on the waterfront at Place Valete a real find, as far as absolutely fabulous food, great value for money, terrific selection of foods. We just loved mixing with the locals in simple outdoor dining on the balmy seafront of Papette.
