We’re back with another food guide, this time on the island of Moorea in French Polynesia! I love sharing food recommendations with anyone willing to take them. And I consider cuisine a major part of my pre-vacation research! I knew this trip would be slightly different in the food department because our Costco package came with daily breakfast and three-course dinners. However, I was happy to find that the Hilton, where we stayed, is one of the better hotels for food.
We did eat outside the hotel a few times for a more authentic experience. Another note, there isn’t that much to eat on the island as it’s very small and times may very. If you’ve been to Hawaii or another island, you may have experienced island time. No guaranteed hours, reservations required, only open select days, so really this is valuable to know ahead of time.
For instance, Coco Beach was somewhere we wanted to go, but they book months in advance. We were lucky to snag a reservation the week before we left, but our later (1 p.m.) time meant they had already ran out of their octopus for the day. One of my favorites was lunch at a food truck on the beach called Le Spot 64 (check out day 2 in our Guide to Moorea!)
Don’t forget to have a glass of champagne on the end of the bungalow docks and soak in the sunset!
