Best meal on Bora Bora

Quite simply the best meal of our trip. We went to many other five star restaurants and this was the best. We went at sunset and it was just breathtaking. We sat at the bar first and had specialty drinks and then went say on the water for dinner. As we eating sting ray and sharks would swim by... read more

We often go there because we are always very pleased by the good service and the quality of the products. The food is really tasty and the wine selection is excellent. The cook offers dishes inspired by French and local flavors: whether you choose meat or fish, your tastebuds will be happy! The owners are very nice and professional and... More

It took us a while to find the place since it sits at the back of a mall, but how lucky we were to find it and have dinner there. The ambiance is very nice, right by the water, soft lights and music. The service very good, attentive even though we didn't have a reservation (recommended in high season). I... More

We stopped here after buying black pearls for lunch. We couldn't sit on porch due to storm, but did enjoy our lunch. It was about $60 USD to eat for 2. In Bora Bora, this is a great price.

My wife and I ate dinner here on the recommendation of the staff at our hotel. We were picked up from our accommodation by a car (actually an open-top Landrover with benches in the back - fun, but it might have been good to know in advance!) and driven with 4 other diners to the restaurant, where we were quickly...

Came early before opening - sans reservation - but Laurent welcomed me to the bar anyway. Witnessed probably the most spectacular sunset in my life yesterday. Great place to wind down with pre-dinner drinks and view the sunset. Made a couple of new friends as well - shout-out to the folks from Albert Store! For Entrée, Carpaccio of Thazard (Wahoo)...

You should definitely make a reservation and choose a waterfront table! Our group had lamb, mahi and the curry shrimp - all were very well prepared and exceptional. Very comfortable setting. Friendly service!

This obviously has a lot of French influence, and the menu has limited but focused options. I had the Shrimp with curry sauce and enjoyed it a lot. The ambiance on the outdoor deck is fantastic, with a great view of the lagoon and sunset. Extensive wine options as well at all price points. Fun desserts too!
