The beach and the Creme Brule

This is my favorite restaurant on Bora Bora, The food is good quality for the price, and the view is perfect. I had about 10 meals at this restaurant, Chicken wings island style with a beer and everything was good, throw in a Creme Brulle with fresh vanilla beans and life does not get any... read more

In March on the day that we arrived to Bora Bora was really rainy. The only place opened for lunch after 3pm was restaurant in Maitai hotel. When we walked to the place it was empty, the waitress was preparing for dinner service. When we asked if it was open she was very unfriendly to the point of being rude.... More

went for dinner last night as we wanted to get off the IC property. Had fried calamari and a local salad with mani mani and chicken. The fish was cooked perfectly but the chicken was overdone. The calamar was over fried for my taste- I know my calamar! Ambience is casual and quiet. Since we weren't wowed by the starters,... More

The food here is fresh and extraordinary. Local and sustainable fish, seasoned just right chicken, pizzas, pastas, steaks, gourmet salads, all of it artistically prepared and cooked perfectly. The drinks are cold and ones where you can taste the alcohol (unlike the mixed drinks at our hotel where we've questioned if there's even a shot). We loved our meal here... More

Excellent food and choices, chef is French trained and the swordfish brochette is outstanding and the best is of course the Chocolate Mousse! If you love really good chocolate mousse than you will love this, totally French and totally perfect! Yummmmm!

Truly delicious cuisine although probably not enough staff to deal with the place getting crowded. So in the evening you might have to wait for more than one hour to get your dish, that includes 30 minutes waiting for the waiters to come to your table in first place...

We ate here 3 times during our stay. It's only a 10 minute walk from Sofitel. Never had to wait for a table, and the food was very good. The menu has pictures of everything so there was no guessing. We had tuna tartar, tuna in a coconut shell, pizza, hamburgers, mahi-burgers and chicken with vanilla sauce. And they had... More

Ate twice during our stay and thought this had to be reviewed for its good value... Tasty dishes (although the chilli con carne was not chilli enough and when ask for chilli sauce was given sweet chilli), good breeze ran through the restaurant and nice staff.

We stayed at Maitai so this was the first restaurant we tried in Bora Bora. We thought the food was good quality but a little expensive, but as we tried more restaurants (including other resorts) we found that it was a good option for decent quality with competitive price in Bora Bora. We paid from 5000-7000 CPF on a typical... More

We had a breakfast and dinner deal and our dinner was usually at Tama'a. Get ur backside into the restaurant before 10.00 pm or else starve! Good food but alcohol is super over priced. Having said that, every restaurant in BOB was over priced for alcohol. Not a place i would visit more than once if we didnt have our... More
