We had the poisson cru and coconut crusted mahi-mahi dishes and the portions were generous . The mahi-mahi was extremely tasting and would highly recommend. The service is relaxed, but still good. This is a popular lunch spot and worth a visit

We loved the food at Snack Mahana - we found it by accident while driving around Moorea and are so glad we stopped for lunch!

We had a lovely lunch in a Greta setting by the water. Garlic shrimp and curry shrimp were delicious.

Great food, very reasonable prices, good service, wonderful setting. We went back 3 times and still ate at most of what northern Moorea had to offer. You will NOT be disappointed

It is a very popular restaurant among locals and tourists. We had a rental car. The street in front of the restaurant was full of parked cars of patrons but we managed to find a spot. Food was simple but fresh. Grilled fish burger and...tuna were amazing.More

This place is always packed. Luckily the day we went it was not too crazy and we only waited a very short bit for a table. Weather was gorgeous and we sat on the deck overlooking the water. Poisson cru was one of the best...on the island. Cash only but definitely put this on your list of places to eat while in Moorea.More

We heard about this place from EVERYONE we saw in Moorea and knew it was a must. Get there early and don't miss out on the breaded Mahi with coconut milk. We had no issues with service but it was obvious the place fills up...quickly. We also had the grilled tuna and it was equally as delicious. The view is no slouch either!More

As all the others who have posted before me have stated, this came highly recommended by some residents we know. And like others before it did not disappoint. I think finding parking and getting in is the hardest part. We were seated quickly. It was...packed so felt lucky to get a seat but it was under the roof area by kitchen. In the end with all the rain it ended up begin one of the better tables. Ordered breaded Mahi Mahi and my wife ordered shrimp curry. Both were delicious and provided a big portion. Staff are very friendly and efficient. On par cost wise to other similar restaurant.More

Best meal on the island, get there five minutes before opening for oceanfront seating. Large portions, beautiful view. There is a fruit stand a little east that has fresh coconuts, etc.

Very good local run restaurant with fresh fish dishes and great views. The waitresses were all super friendly and the food came out relatively fast. The poisson cru and tuna carpaccio were excellent. Great location, so beautiful!

You would never know from the road that the views were super. The food was amazing and we have been there 3 times so far for lunch as the food is great! The staff is superb! They only accept cash and are only open for...lunch Tuesday thru Saturday.More

Nicely located oceanside, this highly reputed restaurant is simply poor value. Garlic shrimp at $23 comprises 10 medium 26/30 size shrimp with shells mixed in to "bulk up" the dish . Moreover, actual prices are higher than listed on the menu, so make sure you...ask so that you're not ambushed at bill paying time, as I was. i've spent three weeks eating out around Moorea, and think you will do better at most other eating establishments.More

Limited menu, forget going here if you don’t like fish. They were out of shrimp, and the other options for protein were tuna, salmon, mahi mahi and burgers. Had the place not gotten amazing reviews, we would have left based on the menu. We got...the grilled mahi and the breaded mahi mahi. Both were extremely fishy. The fries were great. Service was slow. I’m honestly not sure what is driving the good reviews.More

We payed with local currency, but I believe they take other currency and possibly credit card as well. If not, there is a bank nearby with an ATM and where you can get cash if needed.
