I was a little bit apprehensive about visiting this place. I feared it might be a triumph of trend over quality - a sort of Hard Rock Cafe in the sun. However, my fears were misplaced. We went for a light lunch of fried shrimp and it was beyond fantastic. Great ambience with the quirky sandy floor and deeply polished... More

This is definitely a tourist trap albeit with a kinda cool island vibe. Everyone says you "have to go" here but frankly we didn't see the draw. Hostess is surly. All food is ordered standing around the case (no menus). Took awhile to get served. Food ok but expensive for just ok. Server totally bored. Best advice? Go in mid-afternoon... More

This is one of those fun places that everyone goes to. Loved the sand floors (although I do wonder how clean they are) and the way the menu is presented to you (mains are on display and explained in front of you before you sit at your table). I am not a fish eater so there wasn't a lot on... More

We went there without a reservation, but we were still seated after something like a 30-minute wait. What makes this restaurant so popular even with the locals is their selection of fresh fish and steak. The vanilla sauce is out-of-this-world good!! We went back there the following night-that was how good the food was! Worth the pricey dishes!

I visited Bloody Mary's for lunch on a recent visit to Bora Bora, only because I could not get dinner reservations. Evidently one of the major hotel had booked the entire restaurant for dinner and shut out outside guests. Not the best way to do business. My wife and I ordered the Mahi Burger and it was far from the... More

Excellent local fare matched up with adult beverages and entertainment in a fun, casual environment. Traditional island foods as well as fresh fish, poultry and beef satisfy every appetite, vegan to carnivore. Walk off the beach and straight into this charming venue without even taking your feet out of the sand. Fantastic!

This is definitely a very touristy spot with mostly Americans when we went there for lunch. The restaurant itself is a neat setting with sand floors and fun tiki statues, but the the bathrooms are definitely the most entertaining :o) I ended up getting a cheese quesadilla and my husband got the Jimmy Buffet hamburger, which he very much enjoyed...

We went the night of my birthday and some things never change. We were herded in like cattle and were face to face with a beautiful display of Lobster, NZ Steak, and various fish. We were instructed to choose our dinner on the spot and appetizer. We were then seated and the food comes out and everything is rushed to... More
