You will spend a lot of money on food in Tahiti and Moorea. I would not recommend going unless you can afford to budget for those high-price meals, because if you can’t afford them then you won’t be left with many options. In both Tahiti and Moorea, but especially in Moorea, those restaurants with $40 per entree standard prices are really the only places to eat. Even if you stick to eating in your resort (which I don’t recommend, get out and try the fantastic French cooking around the island!), you’ll still end up paying through the nose for your meals.

We got the breakfast buffet at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa for free every day we were there because we had Hilton Gold status. If any of your parents are Hilton Gold members, you might be able to “borrow” their status to get the free breakfast, which is such a huge buffet that it’s easy to stay full all day and skip lunch. Those dinners at the lovely little restaurants around Moorea and in Tahiti, though; you really don’t want to miss those, and you will pay $100-150 for two people at each of them, especially if you want wine, appetizers, and dessert (and how can you resist, it’s your once-in-a-lifetime dream honeymoon!)

PM me if you have any more questions about Tahiti or Moorea. We had a fabulous time there, but the prices there are astronomical; there’s just no way around that.

It’s crazy expensive! The above poster is right-you’ll easily spend at least $40.00 or more per meal.

 There are some resorts there that offer a full meal plan. And there are some luxury cruiseline in that area where all your meals and even some excursions are included. It would be a great way to see all of the islands.

The food prices in Tahiti and Moorea are about the same as they are in New York. In the hotels, the food is even more expensive. My husband and I actually went to the supermarket at one point to buy food to eat from the deck of our bungalow, which cut costs and was also kinda romantic. There’s an option for you!
