Long, relaxing lunch in Vaitape

This cafe was recommended to me by the tour operator who had driven me around Bora Bora all morning and I was not disappointed by his recommendation. Service was very slow as the wait staff seemed to think I was waiting for a second person to turn up, but eventually I caught their eye and they... read more

Just go have a cup of Coffee and imagine how your life would be different if you lived there. Had some good sweets there. We had just walked there from grocery store and I encourage you to not take a taxi from the port to the cafe. It is a short walk and there are a few shops along the... More

Quick and easy, located close to the boat dock! Nice little place not far off the beaten path. I like to eat places where the locals eat and this is one of them!

Great spot to relax in Viatape. Don't come here looking for a view of the water. Instead you'll see the towering mountain while you eat. We had the grilled ham and cheese one day, then came back a couple days later for pizza and salad. Great spot just to have a few drinks. Totally casual.

A great place to stop for a great meal, beer,wine and dessert. Aloe Cafe is a casual place with a solid island vibe. The mahi burger and fries were delicious, and the sorbet was to die for. Free wi-fi allowed me to catch up on things, and the pace is unhurried and relaxing. I fully recommend this place.

Stopped by for some easy lunch. The food was good, no complaints. The service was prompt and very friendly. It's not a 5 star restaurant but a good place to have a burger. Would visit again.

There is not much in downtown Bora Bora except over priced pearl shops and t shirt shops etc. This little cafe is friendly and the fresh juices we ordered were delicious and indeed freshly juiced. The service was a little slow however the quick wifi made up for it. This little cafe is in a little shopping plaza with several... More
