Heard about Snack Mahana from TA reviews and I hounded my husband that this was one restaurant I did not want to miss. Got there right at opening time (11am) and there were already people there. Some of the tables were even reserved. You can tell this place has built quite a reputation. I had the tuna tartare and hubby had the grilled mahi mahi. The food was excellent! really our favorite meal on Moorea. And the service is great, friendly and prompt. We did not have to wait too long for our food. They seat you in the backyard of their garden and part of the house is the restaurant. Worth making the trip to this little gem. WIsh I could have eaten here more than once!

Go to snack Mahana.

You may wait some time before being served, but the food is delicious. An Excellent snack.

Authentic Tahitian family :) The restaurant is in their garden's house.

Not expensive. We went there 3 times during our stay in this wonderful island.

This is about a 20 minute walk from our hotel Intercontinental Moorea. Unfortunately they only serve lunch but is very tasty. They have several good dishes, but her grilled Mahi Mahi was spectacular. They are also very famous for their poisson crue. It is located right on the beach with a beautiful view. It is not a restaurant but it is the best lunch on the island with large portions for a very modest price. I only wish we could have gone their more often.

Almost certainly my favorite meal on Moorea. If you are driving around the island, you should without a doubt plan a stop. Not a fancy restaurant, but a very popular snack shack on the water. We were fortunate to be about the first customers in just after 11:30 on a Tuesday. The place was packed 30 minutes later. We had the grilled mahi and the Poisson Cru with a couple Hinanos and I was in heaven. Extremely fresh and tasty. Loved sitting in the shade of the trees by the water and watching the combination of locals and tourists.
Easiest recommendation - don't miss the Snack Mahana

This place is a snack restaurant, but the food is very good and original, but don't expect a restaurant!
