Very nice. Our best quality to price meal.

We had a seafood pasta dish that was really great for the money. Service is slow, but Bora Bora is french and on island time, so get comfortable and I hope you don't mind the smell of cigarette smoke. And remember, the Spaghetti has the Carbonara. There was a page in the menu where the English... read more

The food here was just average, but the service was surly and slow. To be fair, they were full when we arrived. Perhaps at a slower time, service would have improved.

We had pizza and it was good. The place was packed out with mostly tourist. Prices are moderate. Nothing fancy here, just a good choice for a quick meal. We would go back again if visiting the commerical center of Vaitape, Bora Bora.

Compared to the prices in most of the resorts around the area, the food you get for the price is excellent!!

We stopped here during a rainy shopping excursion. We got the paninis with french fries. The fries were awesome, as were the sandwiches. Prices were pretty good. Service was excellent.

This restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and was recommended by our taxi driver. The atmosphere is nice (though a lot of cruise ship people grab food here and some of them aren't very pleasant) but the staff is friendly and efficient. The drinks are cold. The mai tais are yummy but could use a bit more rum. The kebabs... More

Stopped here for refreshments when we went to Vaitepe. Casual fare- good for a beer, water, snack while in town. My husband had a panini and said it was ok. I had sorbet which hit the spot on a hot, humid day. Cooled me down. Variety of flavors to choose from. I had lemon, mango and passion fruit. Least fav... More

This cafe is on the Vaitape island. When we got onto the island, there were incessant rains. This cafe was suggested by a local. It is on walking distance, once you get on the main island. The food was delicious and comparatively cheaper than the resort restaurants. I had a seafood dish and all the fish were very fresh and... More

You have to check this one out when you go into town. Casual atmosphere, reasonably priced. Great place to stop to rest when shopping for pearls.
