“Delicious lunch”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We walked over to this delightful lunch spot from the Hilton Moorea. I had a sandwich made on a long thin fresh crunchy baguette. The favors were so good. The owner walked out of the side door of the cart to clip fresh herbs from the garden to put on our food. The food is made in a lunch truck
in the owners front yard while you sit at outdoor tables under umbrellas. My friend ordered a second order of the homemade ice cream because she was craving more after the first order. The order wasn't that small it was just that good.

“Yummy and Affordable!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

After our check-in at the Hilton, we walked to Lilikoi - 3 minute walk! Turn right once you leave Hilton and walk on the left side of the street... small little sign that welcomes you to the "roulotte".

Joe greeted us and we had the best lunch! Paninis, tapas, and their fresh ginger lemonade is SO refreshing in that heat :)

Bring your own alcohol and some bug spray and have a relaxing time at the base of the mountain.

“Fun little find!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Just a short walk down the street from the Hilton, you'll find this authentic food truck/small spot. For a different kind of lunch off the resort, check it out, nothing fancy, but nice to get off the resort. You can BYOB and grab a panini. Take some Bug Spray though.
