This was a beautiful open-air cafe on the lagoon. It has lots of shade for hot sunny days (and it protected us from the light rain when we were there. Excellent shrimp and fish.

The foods and the presentation to me is just so-so, but it seems a lot of people are happy with the food quality. I just can not believe they charge $1 U.S dollar for only 80 XFP, while the hotel offer $1 to 94 XFP. If you decide to go, make sure you have XFP.

Fresh seafood, great view, and relaxing ambiance. If you're traveling with someone who doesn't eat seafood, their menu includes burgers and other landfood options. That being said: I don't eat a lot of fish, but I loved their tuna carpaccio so much that I'm planning to dig into a plate of tuna sashimi today!

Stopped in at this place on the way on the way past and it ended up being worth the stop. I had the grilled mahi mahi with pepper sauce and it was delicious. Also, the view was wonderful, as we were seated right next to the water.

Excellent food with an even better view. The menu features well priced seafood, sandwiches, and desserts right on the water with a large tree for shade

Enjoyed fresh fish here. While we dined they brought in a large tuna freshly caught. Table right on the water. Not a fancy place but food was very good. Your can walk from the Intercontinental Hotel.

Great food close to the hotel! I had a steak which was cooked to perfection! The setting was authentic and interesting. You sit outside under a tree looking out over the ocean. We saw a black tip shark while dinning. The tables were all mismatched and covered with plastic table clothes and you order at a counter but that made... More

This is by far my favorite place to eat in Moorea! We went almost everyday for lunch sometimes rushing like maniacs to get there before they closed at 3PM! It is located in what almost seems like someone's backyard with cheap plastic chairs and tables. Of course these cheap plastic tables and chairs are sitting a couple of feet from... More

This is a great spot for lunch as it is situated on a small private shore overlooking the ocean. It was also walking distance from the IC Moorea. There is plenty of shade with large trees and umbrellas. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is very casual. Enjoy Hinano beer and definitely order the poisson de cru a lait... More

We stopped here for lunch the day we rented an ATV to drive through the island, and it ended up being the best meal we had in Moorea. The seafood was so fresh, even the french fries were the best I've had in awhile. It's not a fancy place, but it has a great local vibe, and the views are... More
