We stumbled into the Aloe Café. We were looking for a restroom. We were starving and didn't have much time. The place was crowded, which was a good sign. It doesn't look very impressive from the outside, but we took a chance anyway. So glad we did. The Mahi was pure delight. The best Mahi, I mean the best, I've... More

The only place really open before 10 in Vaitape. Good coffee and breakfast before heading off to explore the island.

Got caught in town during a downpour (!) and was fortunate to grab a seat here to wait it out. Had a really nice glass of chardonnay which was fairly priced, and they have free Wi-Fi. Didn't get a chance to eat anything but the food being served around me looked good. Nice stopping off place if you find yourself... More

This is a great spot for lunch in town. We had a great lunch for under 50 dollars. They also serve cold beer!

Overhyped. The raw tuna in coconut milk was good but the other orders (Mahi burger, Mahi in vanilla sauce, coconut shakes) were just okay. I didn't think price was significantly lower than resort. We had a poor experience with the service. My wife ordered coffee and asked for some milk or cream. She had to ask 4 times and by... More

Great food, lovely juices, and free wifi. What more could we ask for in Bora Bora! It does get busy though. Have a croissant - they are huge and tasty.
