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.

The best thing of it is their location by the white sands of the lagoon. Food wise it was nice experience too, I had tuna carpaccio and it was simply delicious.
The only thing that may confused me is that it took more than 30 min to bring the food (Tuna Carpaccio...) but that is part of the life there I guess.
Price was ok too.

Just back from another great visit to Painapo Beach. Thanks to everyone for your kind words about my November 2016 review. Glad it helped so many people to understand and enjoy Painapo Beach. A few changes to Painapo Beach have been made in the last 6 months. They now have posted official hours from 9am to 3pm Thursday to Sunday. Closed entirely Monday to Wednesday. Food was excellent and still takes about 1 1/2 hours to prepare so order early. Reef is in relatively good shape but the warm water of the El Nino this winter definitely took its toll on the coral here and throughout French polynesia for that matter. All in all, another great visit. For more specific information about Painapo Beach, please see my November 2016 review.

My partner and I stopped here for a fresh pineapple juice and a swim in the lagoon. It was amazing. The hosts were lovely, they had changing rooms and showers, free kayaks to use and a token stingray that frequents the shore. Perfect place for a drink/lunch and swim. Loved it!

We went here for the traditional ma'a meal during lunch time. It is cooked in a traditional way in a self-made oven under the ground. It was a great experience and the food was delicious! The location is beautiful. Reserve and check beforehand if and when ma'a is being served.
