Amazing food and very affordable. We ate lunch here every day after being recommended by the owner of the pension we stayed at. There was free WiFi and a friendly atmosphere.

Had lunch here three times. The food was good but expensive but the cost of wine by the glass was disgraceful. The big problem arose when paying the bill - it was itemized on a calculator and rounded to the nearest thousand. When challenged we found that we'd been charged for things that we didn't have.

Awesome little Restaurant located next to the wharf in Rangiroa. Her food was always excellent (and well priced) and Lili always serves you with a smile on her face.

We ate here two night in a row, because the other places we tried were terrible. The food was amazing and plentiful. The service was .. well the best it could be considering the circumstances. You see, the owner opened the restaurant just for us -- one couple the first night, two the second -- and was the driver, chef,... More

Chez Lili has a great local vibe due to the owner Lili who has a really quirky character and a lot of passion for what she does. You will be greeted with a big smile and treated to some really special Polynesian flavours. We had the lagoon fish in curry sauce and lagoon fish en poisson cru (raw fish salad).... More
