Great place to stop. Excellent service, great food, wonderful location. And reasonably priced for french Polynesia standards. The best meal we've had during our 10-day visit of the islands.

Cute little tiki hut restaurant with beach side seating. The Seafood Sampler platter was to die for. Best Poisson Cru we had in all of our time in French Polynesia! Well maintained grounds with places to sit and relax beach side.

The best thing of it is their location by the white sands of the lagoon. Food wise it was nice experience too, I had tuna carpaccio and it was simply delicious. The only thing that may confused me is that it took more than 30...More

My partner and I stopped here for a fresh pineapple juice and a swim in the lagoon. It was amazing. The hosts were lovely, they had changing rooms and showers, free kayaks to use and a token stingray that frequents the shore. Perfect place for...More

We went here for the traditional ma'a meal during lunch time. It is cooked in a traditional way in a self-made oven under the ground. It was a great experience and the food was delicious! The location is beautiful. Reserve and check beforehand if and...More

We visited Painapo beach twice during our stay in Moorea, and it was by far our best days. We did what a previous reviewer recommended and ordered upon arrival around 10:30 am, and then spent time using the free kayaks, swimming, and enjoying the ambiance....More

We got lucky as we missed the weekend when they are normally open and managed to visit Painapo on a Weds, the day before our departure. We had a wonderful, low key afternoon filled with delicious food, great snorkeling, great conversation with its very proud...More

The staff at this beachside restaurant and bar are very friendly, and the food we had was delicious - especially the grilled tuna with a ginger sauce.

Our party of four enjoyed wonderful lunches at this beach restaurant where they serve several local dishes of fresh seafood. Very friendly host who went out of his way to make our last meal before leaving especially memorable. Limited opening hours.
