We stopped in for a cold beer on a hot day, and they certainly had that. At US$5 for a small (roughly 12 oz.) it wasn't a ripoff. They had quite a wine list too; people we know who are knowledgeable said it was a...More

I ordered a pizza because I don't read much french and honestly nothing else sounded appetizing on the menu. The first pizza I chose I was told I couldn't have because they were out of ingredients. I chose one that I kind of, sort of...More

This is not a fancy place. The word rustic comes to mind. The service isn't amazing, you would have to go to the counter to order etc. Is it cheap? No. Like everything in Tahiti it's expensive.......but, the view and the food is absolutely amazing!...More

We had drinks at Restaurant Moana Nui this week while in Nuku Hiva this week and only wish we could have made it back for a meal. Great setting and very good service.

Located on the piece of road that faces the shore, this small restaurant has the advantage of being one of only 5 eating places in Taiohae. Pizzas and rather good French food is served either inside or on the large terrace fronting the sea. The...More
