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.

We visited several evenings during our trip. It was easy to park in town because everything was closed by 6pm and there were parking spaces available near the market (just across the main 4 lane road from the waterfront area where they are set up). We went around 6:30 each night. We were glad that we went early because the... More

After reading reviews wanted to experience roulottes for ourselves. We had the best meal ever and were amazed at the meals produced. Went back next night as it was so good. Good standard of hygiene. Meals were well priced and huge portions.

We had absolutely NO idea what to expect when we were invited to come eat at the 'food trucks' by our friends who were visiting the city at the same time as we were. When you spend years in Los Angeles, "food trucks' conjure up a lot of ideas - most that do not match up to really good eating.... More

Probably among the best places to eat in Pape'ete. The trucks form up on the waterfront from around 6.30pm. A dozen or more trucks, each with their own speciality, lay out tables and you are waiter served from the catering trucks which prepare fresh meals to order. Crepes, beef, pork, Chinese food all available. (I didn't see burgers, but I'm... More

After reading all the reviews on this set up from trip advisor, we knew this was our dining place for our one evening in Papeete. It did not disappoint , the variety, quality and atmosphere of this place was great, every van sold quality food. We had the steak at one and a fantastic banana crepe at another. Don't miss... More
