While the owner was super friendly and the Internet worked, the food and drink were awful. The rice tasted like it was leftover from the day before-stale, dry, clumpy, and hard. The shrimp was neither deveined nor completely shelled. For some weird reason, the heads were reattached. The flavor was also off. The lime lemonade was so bad you'd be... More

We walked here from the Hilton where we were staying on our honeymoon. It was about a 5 min walk down the road. The owner was very friendly with us and seemed so happy. It was such a cute little spot and the food was delicious! We had the fish burger and the shrimp curry.. both were amazing! Even though... More

This place is amazing. Very good vibe, delicious food, lovely service, great choice of food and when you finish your meal - have a look in the vintage shop in the garden (lots of hidden treasures:). I felt like home. One of the best meals in months! Dziekuje za pyszny obiad I pozdrawiam serdecznie :)

This is a must do! Lilikoi is open for lunch and is just a five minute walk from the hilton. It was perfect so we didn't have to eat at the hotel everyday. The food was delicious and we went twice for lunch. We got the opah fish on special, tuna, coconut shrimp curry and chicken pesto sandwich. The owner... More

Its rare to find "gem" a few metres from a Hilton, but such is Lilikoi Garden Cafe on Moorea Island. Set in a home garden, its pure polynesian. Food is superb and inexpensive. Internet good. Mother, cook, gardener, proprietor, Lauren will chat happily and cheer the day.

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
