“Worth going”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

If you're on the main island while staying in Bora Bora, I would recommend going to this restaurant. It is tons of fun and a tourist spot--so why not?

The food is fairly priced to Bora Bora standards and if you are a fan of fish--you will love this place!

Our only complaints would be that our seats were not leveled at all since the entire floor is covered in sand... so I thought I would topple over at times which is not a typical experience I like to have while enjoying dinner.

The food came pretty fast, although it was very busy. Definitely make reservations!!!

And there are many fun aspects to the restaurant you'll enjoy: the interesting washrooms, the memoirs of bills on a wall, the list of celebrities who've been to Bloody Mary's, etc.

“They saw us coming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We were in Bora Bora yesterday leaving the Sea Princess for a half day excursion. It's a lovely island and the people are magnificent but our day trip finished with a brief visit to Bloody Mary's. It was a huge disappointment and a fellow passenger paid US$19 for a Pina Colada in a plastic cup. She queried the price politely but the female server was adamant that the price was correct. Others paid different prices for a Bloody Mary and it was difficult to get your change. Several orders were taken at once and the staff didn't seem to have much idea as to who wanted what. Their good reputation took a real beating with the 43 passengers on our tour.

“sand floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had a good meal with some bloody marys, and other drinks. We all left happy and full. The bathrooms have very unique "sinks" which to me fall more into landscaping category than sink category. Well worth a stop.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Arrived late on Bora Bora with Bloody Mary's being just a short bus ride away, so thought we would take a look.

Good atmosphere, most tables taken, sand floor.

Greeted at reception and shown the fresh fish and meat on offer and you chose what you wanted to eat.

Meal good, flavoursome, extremely fresh ingredients, served with salad

Cocktails unremarkable, too much ice, low on spirit and without any decoration, not what you would expect on such a exotic island.

We would recommend you give it a go, good value for money

“Famous sailing cruisers restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This bar and restaurant is a great place to party with a group of sailing people. The food is amazing as they show you all the options on a large table and you order before going to your table which is very fun and easy. The variety of food items is almost too large to make a decision. A very fun place!
