In years past this charming delightful outdoor lunch place was a favorite destination of ours because the food was so outstanding. We have reviewed it several times all with 5 start ratings, however, our September 2016 visit there was a horrible experience. They have become so popular that it appears they have cut corners with food costs. Instead of home... More

Stopped at this restaurant for lunch while driving around the island. Curry shrimp dish was one of the best seafood dishes I had during our 10 night stay on the island. Burger was very large and perfectly cooked. Staff was good and table by the ocean had a great view. Had to pay cash as they don't accept credit. All... More

Floyd Mayweather is asserted to be the best pound for pound pugilist in history, but is well known to be unpleasant. This beachfront cafe/lunch spot may be the best pound for pound dining experience I've ever had, but is pleasant in every possible way. If all they did was baguettes, croques etc they would well and truly justify their existence,... More

Absolutely fabulous food in a little roadside restaurant. Outdoor tables right on the water and the poisson cru is perfect, rich with ginger and garlic and coconut milk. A great meal!

During our 6 day stay on Moorea we had lunch at Snack Mahana three times. Every dish was superb, garlic shrimp, grilled Mahi mahi and the best tuna carpaccio.

Great place to eat. Lunch only and cash only. We ate right at the lagoons edge and had poison cru, grilled mahi mahi and bananas flambé . All excellent. The service was great, but at the Tahitian pace which to us was no problem. We are planning to go back!

Located at 15/20 min walk from the Intercontinental Resort & Spa We were lucky enough to get immediately a table as we did not book. People after us had to wait ! Affordable and delicious food, everything is fresh and so tasty at a reasonable price. The service is a bit long due to the number of customers, but the... More

This is a small, family-run business that serves only lunch. There are tables by the water with a wonderful view. The food is excellent - clearly very fresh. Go early as they can run out of things
