Where to have a drink in Tahiti

Have a drink Fortunately, as you will discover, Tahiti has no shortage of different places to have a drink in different atmospheres, especially with a grandiose setting thanks to the spectacular sunsets.

The sun sets early and quickly in Tahiti, so we recommend that you schedule your aperitif at 5:00 p.m., which is also usually the time when most establishments will offer special happy hour rates. Whether in Papeete, on the east or west coast, you can enjoy a unique moment, over a cocktail, or a glass of wine or a local beer or rhum.

Through the podcast, our guests share their best addresses for a happy hour with friends or lovers. We mainly present you sites by the sea to enjoy the scenery, but you can also go to a wine merchant and then to the beach …

The best addresses

Our guests recommend you in Papeete, the new bars and restaurants Meherio and Moana, on the seafront, the Zion Bar which also offers a bowling alley, the station café where you can discover a very nice wine and rhum list, the « 3 brasseurs » for its house beer and musical atmosphere, and finally the retro, establishment open every day in the center of Papeete.

You can also enjoy exceptional sunset by the sea and we particularly recommend restaurant la plage or the Taapuna, bar of the Manava hotel but also the Marina Taina or the Royal tahitian

Where to eat

As you will discover, Tahiti deserves to be highlighted also for its gastronomy. Indeed, you can taste local specialties, including raw fish, but also French or Asian cuisine. This gastronomic diversity, a heritage of the history of our islands, translates into a wide variety of tastes and products that will delight you whether you are lovers of authenticity but also gastronomic innovation.

There is no shortage of good addresses and our guests recommend « the Hei » for Polynesian-style gastronomy, but also the restarant « l’ O à la bouche «  or « the Soufflé » and Sully for revisited French specialties, at Jimmy’s for tasty asian cuisine. For a more relaxed atmosphere by the water we recommend the sunset, or the famous Maui beach snack restaurant. Also essential, the ‘ roulottes’ , whether in Papeete or Punaauia with for example the poke bar … you can eat in a typical Polynesian atmosphere, at a reduced cost, and very abundantly.

You will quickly understand that Polynesians appreciate gastronomy and are curious about the different palettes of flavors offered by cultural plurality. So, whatever type of cuisine you like, you should find some great experiences in Tahiti to share!
