Certainly close to the Hilton as most reviewers have mentioned, this place is a quaint hidden paradise away from it all. Though extremely small, the garden at Lilikoi is extremely charming, as is the owner who is very friendly and a pleasure to speak to. We had the club sandwiches which were made with fresh tuna and chicken. The portions... More

Just a stone's throw from the Hilton (turn right, walk about 250m and its on the left- follow the signs). Super tasty lunch meals and home made Icecream that is amazing. Lovely owner to who speaks fluent English. Great to get out of the resort.... We will be back! Highly recommended!!

We stopped here for smoothies and coffee. Set in a lovely garden. It's a really nice and chilled out spot. Close to the Moorea beach front. Go there and try it out!

1. Walking distance from Hilton Moorea (5 minutes) 2. Sweet little garden cafe set up - outdoor, tables with umbrellas, the sweetest little kitties. 3. the FOOD - delicious. Coming from Hawaii we were a little sad about Tahiti food options, however, we managed the first 5 days off of baguettes and cheese. When we finally made it to the... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Hilton and found this awesome place about a 5 minute walk down the road. Laurence, the owner, has everything set up in her cute yard. She is so welcoming and a joy to talk to. I loved the curry and the grilled tuna. She makes amazing coconut ice cream as well! We ended up... More

We were driving with my husband looking for a place to eat when we saw the sign to Lilikoi Garden Cafe (it's not very visible though). It was a nice surprise to have lunch here. It is very cozy and cute. The food is nice as well, although slightly pricey for what we eat. I had the curry shrimps with... More

Good food and great service. Definitely an improvement from hotel food with a charming setting. There is also a little shop attached with souvenirs.

My husband and I were so tired of eating resort food. We decided to walk to Lilikoi from the Hilton (turn right and walk 5-10 mins). We are so glad we did. It was the best meal we had in Mo'orea. We had Tuna, pineapple eggplant curry and 2 desserts. Our meal was less than $50. Much cheaper than the... More

we love the relaxed atmosphere of this place! Cool down from a day at the beach or take a break from your island tour. Sit back and relax, listen to the beards and enjoy your tropical lunch break. Very nice spot for families with kids!

A beautiful setting, welcoming owner but her food is prepared from frozen products. Curry shrimp, French fries etc. Her curry shrimp plate consisted of 8 tiny little shrimps prepared from her frozen bag, with a portion of rice. Very pricey for what we got on this island for lunches. 1,600 xpf or the equivalent of $22. Canadian dollars. Very unfortunate... More

So sorry you did not liked my place, it is difficult to find fresh products all the time on Moorea. We are on a small island with fish and fresh shrimps only available twice a week so I have no other choice than freezer!!!
