Good food, nice setting

Great service and an eclectic menu that was consistently good, if not fantastic. Our meal was satisfying after a day of trekking and this restaurant felt like a (relatively) good value compared to overpriced alternatives. Would recommend the pasta dishes.

right in front of our hotel, otherwise I would not cross the street for it. Iffy service, weak selection, so-so food.

We booked whilst walking along from our hotel nearby. We got to chose an outdoor table which was pleasant despite the windy conditions. When we returned at 7.30 the service was prompt and helpful. The goat cheese entree was delightful, the calamari over fried. The 2 different seafood pasta dishes were generous in amount and very tasty. We could not... More

This restaurant is attached to the Hotel Maitai where we stayed so we ate here each night. The food is reasonable both in price and quality with a good selection of traditional French Polynesian dishes or burgers or pizza. Lovely view over the lagoon and a casual atmosphere. We thought the 1/2 litre carafes of wine were really good value,... 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

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 better. I really also enjoy... 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!
