You cannot ask for a better local meal than at Snack Mahana. We have gone there each time we visited Moorea and were not disappointed once! My 10 year old son ordered the Poisson Cru (he is a picky eater, so we were a little nervous) and he ate it ALL! The mahi mahi had just been caught and delivered... More

Fantastic food and reasonably priced for the expensive island of Moorea. The prawn curry was fantastic and the steak the best my daughter has ever had.

Charming setting along the shoreline at Papetoai with friendly service and fresh tasty food. We came in on the Paul Gauguin cruise so it was very easy catching a ride to the restaurant. Otherwise, its a 20 minute walk (c. 1 mile) from the Papetoai dock.

The food here was so delicious! It is a very laid back place to eat. I was definitely some of the best fish I have ever had!

We had lunch here one day on our honeymoon and loved the "good food with no frills" attitude of the place that makes so many of the local restaurants in Moorea worth visiting. I had the tuna with coconut milk while my husband enjoyed the Tuna Tartare. Both were yummy and filled us up. When we were there in June... More

Busy place with good vibes. Fresh fish in a variety of ways. Service a little slow and we had to have dessert while standing up at payment counter because taxi was waiting.

The best meal we had. We had lunch. We had the tuna and the mahi and was beyond great. Was maybe $30 or so. Nice setting right on the water.

I had the tuna in coconut milk and my husband had the mahi mahi with rice. Staff was super friendly and they operate in a small kitchen so it was nice to have good conversation with other patrons while waiting for our food. The portions were very generous and the tuna was incredible. There were dogs wondering around the outside... More

My husband and I stayed at the Intercontinental and walked down to this little piece of paradise after the tour guide told us about it the day that we arrived. It is about a 10 minute walk- not too bad. The restaurant does not look fancy, but don't let that discourage you!! The server was very friendly, the food was... More
