We spen a week in Moorea, Hilton. The Lilikoi Garden Cafe was within walking distance. Owner/chef, was pleasant and she prepared all food items fresh from scratch. It was a welcomed respite from the Hilton fare. Price was also reasonable for Moorea. You can't go wrong with this locale. This location is only open for lunch.

We walked into the yard and turned the corner into her personal home's yard, but being that it was late for lunch, Laurence the owner spent so much time talking with us after she prepared such a delicious lunch. She is a remarkable person, her children even came outside and said hello to us. We had the parrot fish and... More

A great alternative to the expensive Hilton lunch just a 3 min walk to this lovely homy restaurant. Laurence will treat you like royalty and talk with you while she prepares your food. Everything we had was great and made on the spot, large variety of dishes and reasonable prices. Cash only so come prepared (USD is also OK..). We... More

Staying at the Hilton, we ended up visiting Lilikoi as a way to eat something other than hotel food. The first day we went there it was past 1 so the rush had already died down. she was able to spend some time with us and chatted with us while we waiting for our food. She is a very social... More

We visited here twice on our Moorea holiday because we liked it so much. It's a real treasure. Lauren, the owner, is always ready with a big smile as she bustles out of the house to the caravan-kitchen in her garden as guests arrive. It's very much a spontaneous set-up, very charming and informal. But make no mistake, Lauren knows... More

Lilikoi was an excelent french woman, very friendly and always ready to satisfy our preferences in the food preparation. The food is very good and, frankly, is a very good alternative for the very expensive prices of the near hotel where we were.

Lauren is the most wonderful cook. she will cook and chat happily in the most cheerful way and lunch at her cafe is truly delightful. great spot for vegetarians who seek her out because there aren't many other vegetarian options on the island (most French restaurants include a lot of butter, cheese, and meat dishes). she has a modest menu...

I would have given 3.5 stars as it's better than average, We had been biking the coastline and came across Lillikoi. We enjoyed the garden setting, the owner was super friendly and chatted whilst she prepared our food. I had a Coconut prawn curry which was very tasty and my daughter had the vegetarian burger which she enjoyed also. We... More

While the owner was super friendly and the Internet worked, the food and drink were awful. The rice tasted like it was leftover from the day before-stale, dry, clumpy, and hard. The shrimp was neither deveined nor completely shelled. For some weird reason, the heads were reattached. The flavor was also off. The lime lemonade was so bad you'd be... More
