In a sublime location overlooking the turquoise lagoon, breezy Mahana is a heart-stealing open-air snack. Linger over burgers, a plate of grilled mahimahi (dorado) or tuna sashimi while savouring the lagoon views. Light years away from the glitz usually associated with French Polynesia, it can’t get more mellow than this. So Mo’orea. Cash only.
Tip: arrive early (before 1pm) and reserve a table by the sea.
