“Not worth the trip”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 NEW via mobile

Sand fleas attack your feet. We had reservations and still had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. We ordered teryiaki wahoo and it came with no teryiaki flavor and a creme sauce. Not to to mention the fish was overcooked on one filet and raw on the other. The rice was undercooked and crunchy. The world famous bloody Mary was tomatoe juice with a splash of vodka. Not sure why this is a must stop by but on our list it is a definite pass!

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 NEW

We had to eat here because..well..doesn't everyone eat here while in Bora Bora!?! We had eaten here twice before on two other trips to Bora Bora. This was our third visit. First,we sat at the bar and had a delicious cocktail. They try to rush you and give you the fresh food menu presentation right away but we like to sit at the bar and have a drink first and not be rushed. After our drink, we (unfortunately) ordered the "Special" which was fresh, local Mahi Mahi wrapped in foil with vegetables and cream sauce on the side. Sounds good right? It was terrible. Our server wasn't much help either. He hardly spoke English so when I tried to tell him that I didn't care for my dinner, he just smiled and repeated that is was Mahi Mahi. Gee thanks. So, I found another server who was very sweet and gladly exchanged my meal. She suggested another local fish which ended up being delicious. We wish she had been our server to begin with. Ours disappeared and it took us over 20 minutes to find him and pay. My husband was so annoyed he said he didn't even want to buy a T-shirt anymore. LOL. We found all three other restaurants we had dinner at much better than Bloody Mary's. St. James was our favorite.
