Cute little tiki hut restaurant with beach side seating. The Seafood Sampler platter was to die for. Best Poisson Cru we had in all of our time in French Polynesia! Well maintained grounds with places to sit and relax beach side.

We visited Painapo beach twice during our stay in Moorea, and it was by far our best days. We did what a previous reviewer recommended and ordered upon arrival around 10:30 am, and then spent time using the free kayaks, swimming, and enjoying the ambiance....More

We got lucky as we missed the weekend when they are normally open and managed to visit Painapo on a Weds, the day before our departure. We had a wonderful, low key afternoon filled with delicious food, great snorkeling, great conversation with its very proud...More

The staff at this beachside restaurant and bar are very friendly, and the food we had was delicious - especially the grilled tuna with a ginger sauce.

Our party of four enjoyed wonderful lunches at this beach restaurant where they serve several local dishes of fresh seafood. Very friendly host who went out of his way to make our last meal before leaving especially memorable. Limited opening hours.

Yes I think so. We stopped by twice for lunch. Once without a reservation and had no issues getting a table. However, the second time we went was during a Waterman competition and there was lots of people. We also didn't... More
