Great food with a great view!

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant after we hiked the Three Coconuts Trail. He could tell we did not want a busy restaurant full of tourists like ourselves. This restaurant is about a 20 minute walk from the main dock/pier. We had delicious pouissan cru while looking out over the water. The... read more

If you're on Moorea you have to come here. First, it's right on the water. Second, the food is amazing!!! Huge portions and amazingly fresh fish!

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times on various trips to Moorea. The food is quite good (parrot fish yum!) and the portions are large....But....the service is excruciatingly slow. They have added a few tables over the years so the staff seems even more stressed these days. Honestly they have a lovely lagoon view... More

My husband and I ventured out to Snack Mahana for lunch one day and had an excellent meal. We stayed at the InterContinental and were told by our maid that Snack Mahana is the best place to eat and is a short walk, about 15 minutes, down the road. It was an extremely hot day and it took us longer... More

From the road, it doesn't look like much, but you know it's going to be good by the number of cars parked in front of it. Both residents and visitors eat here. It is open only from 12-3 Monday through Friday and it is busy the entire time it is open. It is a little restaurant that looks to be... More

Best lunch on the island. The garlic shrimp was one of my favorite meals of the week. The staff was also very friendly.

Great food, cold beer, reasonable price and nice views at the yard of a local house. The owner were extremely friendly, they were already closed but she let us in and prepared some nice mahi-mahi. Don't miss it!
