Great food but the service was slow the night we ate there. Good selection of bonefish entrees, plus explosions fired pizzas. Plan to spend $100 without drinks for two.

We ate here at least 3 times (for dinner) during our stay in Bora Bora - we loved it that much! The tuna tasting plate is amazing, as is the lobster (local, caught fresh). Try the steak with lobster. We booked a table by the pool for our last night and the Head Waiter had set it up with flowers... More

It is a local place, serving seafood, sandwiches and pizza. When you walk in, you are greeted with a fire roasted pizza oven. The smells were awesome. So we chose the pizza over a seafood dish. Very underwhelmed and disappointed.

After having no luck getting a reservation at another place in Viatape, we were re routed to this place. Very poor service, slow, and inattentive. The food was very good, and plated beautifully, but the waiter single-handed lay almost ruined the experience for the most part. It's a small island with limited seating in every restaurant but make this your... More

This was our third visit to Fare Manuia, having dined here twice on our last trip to Bora Bora five years ago. The food is still good but maybe not quite as good as last time, the wine list was definitely not as strong as our last trip, but the pizzas in particular were very good. Service on our previous...

We had the pizza, which i watched being made and baked in the nearby stone oven. Pizza was very good, and the menu contained a surprising variety of other amazing looking dishes. Fish, meat, pasta, burgers, you name it. Service was fine, and I will definitely go back here when I return. (Our local photographer stated he thought it had... More

Stayed at the Hotel Matira right next door and ate at this restaurant several times. All meals were terrific and Michel and his staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Their portions are quite large - not sure about what the other reviewers were saying - but we had everything from the pizzas - delicious!... More

Food was good, but laughably small portions, decorated in fancy "nouvelle cusine " style. You will need a snack when you get home.

Everyone raved about the pizza here so we tried it. It was actually very good, but the service was very very slow. The restaurant was not crowed when we went, but I think they do a lot of takeout business, so it took over an hour to get our pizzas when we were there. We tried to go back a... More

We stayed at IC Le Moana and walked over and picked up pizza that we ate (with a bottle of wine) on our deck of our bungalow. After some nights of rich and expensive French food on Bora Bora, this was a perfect evening. Pizza was great!
