My wife and I almost didn't eat here because I had seen a couple reviews calling it a "tourist trap" or comparing it to a Hard Rock Cafe-type of joint. I couldn't disagree more. It isn't fine dining, but it's a great beach/island spot. If you've been to Mama's Fish House in Maui, I would say Bloody Mary's is very... More

I lover the Happy Hour, fresh local fish laid out on ice and the quirky outdoor toilets. The location is superb with its own jetty.

The four of us had a 6:30 reservation and were prompty seated. They put us at a table next to a large loud group,and asked to be moved, which they graciously did. Our friend in Bora Bora said this was a bit of a tourist trap, and that was found to be the case. The tropical drinks were average at... More

Bloody Mary's is a great restaurant with a unique approach to their menu. They offer fresh catches of the day (maybe 10-12 different options) under a thatch roof with a sand floor! The food was outstanding, service incredible, and the atmosphere was quite compelling. If you go to Bora Bora, a visit to Bloody Mary's is a must.

Bloody Mary's is certainly a restaurant I would recommend, but I would not consider it a must. Very popular amongst travelers, but the food is not anything special. Prices were reasonable, the sand-floor dining is unique, as is the "menu." If we are able to return to Bora Bora, we would choose other restaurants first.

As other's have said, it's definitely one for the bucket list, but fell short of the hype, at least for our lunch time experience. Maybe dinnertime would have provided a little more energy, but for lunch, we were one of only 3 couples dining during a weekday afternoon. We did love the decor, and sand on the floor. The stump...

Bloody Mary's is a great place to eat, and very popular. It does get very busy at lunch and dinner time. The food is relatively good and service is great. I might not visit the restaurant again if went back, just to say I've been there!

We went here to have lunch during our stay in Bora Bora. Yes it is touristy but the food was good, prices reasonable, and the atmosphere was fun. Lunch time was not crowded and the mahi sandwich was good. It is one of those places that is worth trying and getting a t-shirt.

Place is lovely, we went for dinner whilst on our honeymoon. A menu does not exist and instead they present you with the fresh food which is avaiable. This looks amazing but in reality we were not impressed by the food. Prices are on the higher end so we expected something better. Seating is not very comfortable as there are... More

We had lunch at Bloody Mary's as part of a full-day excursion. The food was very good, but it was really dead. Recommend going for dinner instead. I was bummed they didn't have more ladies fit shirts.
