Description: Dominique and Philippe, the owners of the restaurant "The Yellow Lizard Cafe", warmly welcome you to their friendly hotel design is modern and local. The originality of concept consists both in cooking a la plancha, but also in the original presentation skewers which are suspended on a suitable bracket. "The lineup in all its forms" Cooking a la plancha allows to highlight the flavors of local products such as shrimp Opunohu, bluefin tuna, swordfish and mahi-mahi. It offers a perfect cooking with lamb chops, beef and chicken piece, but also vegetables that retain their crispness. Note that each skewer made at least 250 g. For dessert, besides the homemade ice cream with fresh fruit Moorea and chocolate cake, pineapple and banana are also to be plugged caramelized or flambeed in rum.

I ate here once. The food was good, but overpriced, as are all the restaurants I ate at while on Moorea.

Merci Daniel pour votre avis.
Concernant les prix, il serait judicieux d'analyser notre situation géographique dans le monde.
Malheureusement le coût de la vie en Polynésie Française reste élevé dû à notre éloignement et à nos contraintes locales.
Nous vous souhaitons un agréable séjour dans nos îles paradisiaques et peut-être à bientôt.

We were picked up at the Intercontinental Hotel for free and arrived after a short drive at the restaurant. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the service was very good. Our waitress recommended a special dish of their chef and I must admit it was the most delicious starter I have ever had. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the name, but it was raw fish with salad and an incredible tasty dressing. The main courses were extremely good (fish of the day, swordfish skewer and tofu skewer) and we had ice cream to finnish this excellent dinner. We were here 3 years ago and we were a bit worried if it is still that good, but we were not disappointed at all! Highly recommend it and we will be back!

Of all of the restaurants on our vacation to French Polynesia, this was our favorite. The wait staff was very helpful in helping us to choose our food, and very accommodating. The ambience is perfect, and the small feel of the restaurant is such a great experience. The poisson cru was the BEST, and all of the food was excellent. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our dinner here!

Discovered this restaurant on Trip Advisor
and was not disappointed. Complimentary pick ups at our hotel. Staff was friendly and efficient. Our waitress took time to explain the French menu carefully to Us. Red tuna was delicious as a starter with the Angus Beef steak cooked to perfection as our entree. Potions are large enough to share.
French Bread was fresh & delicious. Coconut ice cream was delicious! We will be returning later in our trip!

We are so glad we chose Le Lezard JauneCafe for our last night in Moorea. They picked us up at our hotel and many kudos go out to the driver whose name I have forgotten. He was so kind and friendly and loved talking with him. Our meal was soooo good. Especially loved the special dessert of Coconut Cake w/ pineapple center and coconut ice cream. Service was impeccable. Go!
