The prices are very reasonable based on Tahiti's standards. There were a lot of interesting items on the menu and eating out on the pier made for an enjoyable... More

Well crafted and organized restaurant. Versatile menu from exquisite appetizers that are well proportioned..First visit we had to try a Fish something pizza that came out divinely prepared. Somewhat of a béchamel white sauce with bundles of tuna. So good we ordered a RED pizza primarily with vegetables .. Both out of this world with crisp thin crust served quickly.... More

there are not so many restaurants located right on the lagoon, the Blue Banana is one of them. The service is quick, the food is good, the pizzas are excellent

We stopped here and had dinner during a 4 hour layover. The food was good, the service was okay and it was nice to be next to the water. I would definitely recommend going to this place if you have time between flights.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and staying just down the road - I decided to check it out. All reviews are true, great location, great ambience, great service and a mean margherita... a good indicator in itself! We headed along at 6pm as we hadn't reserved and anticipated it being busy on a Saturday night. Nearly all the tables... More
