Restaurant suggestions?

Here at the Hilton on Moorea now. A little confused and overwhelmed by the restaurant reviews vs hotel recommendations. There don't seem to be any waterfront restaurants other than Moorea beach cafe - we're waiting to hear about a reservation there.

Any regulars want to point me in the right direction for dinners while we're here? Great location + good food.

Merci!

Most of the good restaurants on Moorea are NOT on the beach.

Based on recommendations I've read here, I'm going to try Le Mayflower when we're there in March.

Rudy's is very good and they will provide transport. Likikoi (sp?) is a little place within walking distance of the hotel. Fine for a very, very casual lunch in the garden of the owner. Walk out the driveway of the Hilton and make a right. It is across the street about 2 blocks down. Very inexpensive but bring local currency. I don't know if they take USD.

While not open for dinner and not necessarily brimming with atmosphere, Snack Mahana has great food and is right by the water.

Te Honu Iti is also on the water--they do stingray/shark feeding at night. Not cheap, but we've always loved the food and are a sucker for watching the rays glide through the water at night.

Loved Moorea Beach cafe and didnt need reservations when we were there at the end of august - just walked down for a mid afternoon lunch - best meal of our vacation. also had amazing pasta at Le Sunset - fresh homemade pasta that was outstanding and it is right on a beautiful beach as well - nice spot for lunch.

Must do Rudy's for the parrotfish stuffed with crab.
