The food trucks at the Roulottes offer a great cheaper alternative to eating in your hotel of restaurants. Would recommend the Steak-frites and crepes. Open about 18:00. No alcohol. Huge portion sizes...if you want a crepe for dessert suggest you share a main

We had a late night desert at the Roulettes at Place Varieté - so much fun. The Crepe Suzette was tasty and service was great. Every food stall has their own specialties.

Lots of food trucks available near the pier and fairy. Well organized. Surprised to see table set up with numbers on the tables. All kinds of good foods available. Cost range equivalent US dollars of 10 to 15. Most food cooked to order.

Being in Papeete and Tahiti in general does put a strain on your wallet. Eating here is not cheap either but definitely more affordable. Streetfood, trucks that setup in the late afternoon, put chairs and tables outside and the smells start greeting you! Nice variations...More

There's a lot of chinese food options, with fried noodles, etc. I opted for the crepe truck since the wafting food smelled the best from there. They had a combo with a savory and desert crepe + a drink for 10,000 xpf ($10 US). I...More
