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.

I wish that I had read the below review prior to visiting Pinapo Beach! We were driving around for hours and decided to stop at Pinapo Beach for lunch. Little did we know that it would be such a long wait for food and I started to get hangry as my blood sugar dipped. When the food finally came out... More

I have been to Painapo Beach (marketing name on private property, not a public beach or resort) more times than I can count. It is consistently one of my favorite activities to do while on Moorea and anywhere in the world for that matter. In order to keep Painapo Beach open for year to come, I feel the need to... More

Definitely worth stopping by on Sunday for lunch. There is often maaa Tahiti and you are right on the beach with your feet in the sand as you eat. If there is no maaa Tahiti, the Must Have is the fish trio (sashimi, carpaccio and poisson cru)

The rare tuna in coconut milk was awesome, but the service was incredibly slow and the dont' seem to care much about customers. lots of wild dogs running around. Again the setting is worth a stop, but have had much better service and food... More

The place is really simple,laid back, feet in the sand and has a wonderful view. The staff are really nice and helpful and the best part is the food which is delicious. We had the combo- poisson cru, tuna tartar and tuna carpaccio and each was better than the other. Tip:Do bring cash as they don't accept credit cards.
