This place next door to the intercontinental le moana resort is disappointing - the hotel restaurant is much better value. Food is average (lots of stuff on the menu is unavailable), service is indifferent.

We walked over from the Intercontinental and had dinner last week. It's situated right off the road, so it's not the typical Bora Bora restaurant on the water. The menu has a good variety of options on it, however, we both found the food to be average. The service was slow. We ordered pizza and salad and the pizza crust... More

Being Australian once we walked into 'the lucky house' we felt right at home! The bar is set up as a bit of a man cave and we enjoyed that fact. The owner who we actually thought was a patron is definitely a character and definitely enjoys a drink himself. We enjoyed 2 meals here on 2 separate occasions. The... More

We are staying at the Inter Continental le Moana Resort, which is just steps from this nice restaurant. We have eaten here twice during our stay. The first time we ordered the Greek Salad, which had tons of Feta Cheese, and enough to split for two. Great dressing and nice presentation. We paired this with a pizza cooked in their... More

We ate dinner at Fare Manuia (aka Lucky House) during our stay in Bora Bora. Round trip transportation was included from the Hilton dock in Bora Bora. I had Tuna and my wife had pizza. The tuna was good and my wife really enjoyed the pizza. From the look of the pizza oven at the front of the restaurant, it... More

My wife and I went to dinner here the last night of our vacation. I wish we would have gone sooner! The food is great, but the people are better. In our 8 day trip we ate and drank at most of the restaurants in Bora Bora. This by far was the most interesting and fun place on the island.... More

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
