My wife and I had dinner at Mai Kai during our honeymoon visit to Bora Bora. Unfortunately she wasn't feeling well that night and only had a Caesar salad which she said was very good and I had the seared tuna special with foie gras. The tuna was excellent and, even though I had never tried foie gras before, it... More

Based upon reviews I expected excellence, but was a tiny bit disappointed. This was a nice place and we had good meals (we ate dinner here twice), but it was not quite up to its reviews. First, the setting. It was excellent. On an open marina overlooking Vaitape. Most tables are within a gorgeous, huge open air enclosure. If, as... More

Our hotel made an arrangement to have them to pick us up at the Vaitape dock at 6 pm, they never showed up. Another driver waiting for other clients took us to St James for free. We had a very lovely dinner there.

Great atmosphere. Large, yacht club feel right on the water. The food was unbelievable and the best we had on our trip. Frequently has local musicians playing while you dine. Would recommend to anyone wanting a decently priced meal away from your hotel.

What a great rest restaurant! Specialties include New Zealand Beef and fresh seafood. Located on the waterfront, this place is a must for a nice evening and good food.

The MaiKai Bora Bora Marina & Yacht Club was an oasis in many ways during our recent sailing adventure in the Leeward Society Islands of French Polynesia. We visited the marina and restaurant twice and both times thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Pros: * Moorings, water, ice, nearby gas * Lots of amenities (laundry, trash disposal, shuttle service) * Wi-fi * Excellent... More

What a way to end our honeymoon. The service was good and the music was nice. We went to this restaurant to see the stingrays and were able to watch the stingrays feed on fish attracted by the blue light.

A little expensive and a little lousy too. Fair food though and the view over the lagoon is pretty nice.
