Meals are served in the reception fare. The tables, which are shaded from the sun by the roofing and sheltered from the wind by a curtain of trees, still manage to offer glimpses of the lagoon, making for both a typical and charming setting. Breakfast is served at the table and consists of bread, butter, tropical preserves, fresh seasonal fruit, fruit juice and hot drinks. At lunchtime, guests can choose from a selection of basic snacks, such as sandwiches and ham or cheese omelettes. You may prefer to take a stroll into the village, where you will find a bakery, a mini-market and a snack bar. Other dining options include the 'table d'hôtes' at other small private hotels (located between the airport and the Aito Motel Colette) and the restaurant at the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort (hotel boat from the port of Tuherahera). In the evening, it is a good idea to get some provisions in (to limit the expense) or dine at the hotel, where a 3-course set menu, consisting of tasty local cuisine (Tahitian raw fish, grilled mahi-mahi served plain or with a sauce and a dessert of 'poe' or manioc cream with coconut) will set you back ?24.
