Forget the Beach Body: Eating Options in Moorea

Where to Eat Moorea is part of the Tahiti Triumph Trip Report. It covers the following cities:

See the Picture Preview here and see how this $60,000 trip cost $1999 here. Be sure to check out TPOL’s Map, the best feature of the blog.

I worked hard to get into shape before Tahiti (see The Tahiti Diet: Making the Bungalow Selfie Count). I even brought my own snacks with me both to  avoid price gouging and get through the hunger pains (see IC Le Moana Bora Bora: Pointless Stay). Then I arrived in Moorea, learned about the multiple restaurants off the resort property (see Hilton Moorea: Fun in the Sun), and called off the budget and the meal plan.

Lilikoi Garden Cafe

After a round of hit and mostly miss golf (see Golf in Tahiti? Not in This Town), we stopped at Lilikoi Garden Cafe for a pleasant lunch. Who needs fancy when you receive fresh quality?

Holy Steak House 

My favorite restaurant in Moorea was Holy Steak House. It was so good, we went twice. a sign with a face and text a statue of a man with a sign on a table a bar with shelves of wine glasses and bottles a table with chairs and glasses on it a plate of pasta with cheese on it a cheeseburger on a plate a plate of food and winea plate of ribs with sauce a piece of steak on a plate with a fork

Moorea Beach Cafe

Since we were in French Polynesia, I had to sample French cuisine at Moorea Beach Cafe. This was my first time eating escargot. My prior knowledge of escargot came from days on the playground in grade school where kids used to say how people in France ate snails. Yuck!

And when you’re too full to move, there’s always Allo Pizza for delivery.

I was very impressed with the restaurants in Moorea. My diet may have been shot, but the budget was not blown too badly.
