We came for lunch and got ourselves two great dishes! The salmon "a la planche" and the "trio" of raw fish. Both were excellent! Not only quality and taste but also the presentation and the service passed the test! The location is really lovely with a nice view to the beach and the bungalows, the price was ok for bora...

Walked from the InterContinental for lunch. Rolls were great (and as other noted they are california rolls with your selected fish on top). The Poisson Cru was just okay and skippable in our opinion. The view was fantastic. The service was on par in terms of being fast/slow for other places we went in French Polynesia. If you are in... More

We really wanted to like our dinner here -- the restaurant came highly recommended by our hotel and we were in the mood for a casual meal. The location is perfect --sitting outdoors overlooking the beach at night was very romantic and peaceful. We ordered sushi for an appetizer and then an entree and glass of wine each. Unfortunately, our... More

We walked here from matira beach for lunch based on trip advisor recommendations. It is a open air restaurant with gorgeous views of the beach and beautiful bora bora water. We had yummy cocktail, mine was named bora bora and it was delicious. Our sushi was good but when we spotted what others ordered, wished I would have tried something... More

When we visited, there was an elderly couple at the next table who came off a cruise ship for the day. They had a lovely story to tell, every year they tour around the islands and always make sure they come back to this restaurant for lunch when they are in Bora Bora. We can see why you would want...

Very local feel-- My husband and I went here for lunch during a jet ski excursion one afternoon during our honeymoon. We had a nice table outside and the restaurant wasn't too crowded (maybe 2-3 other groups). Service was attentive but not overbearing. I tried to order a couple different beef dishes though they were out of my first two... More

Mature Beach Restaurant is located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The restaurant serves sushi as well as delicious seafood creations. We had sushi as an appetizer and a delicious local white fish that was stuffed with a mixture of shell fish meat. It was truly different and delicious. Desert was also great and beautifully presented. Service was very friendly... More

I was one night in this restaurant, it's very nice place and very nice food, but expensive and the waiter was a little bit rude.

Oh wow! Everything was perfect from the transportation (by the owner) to the sunset to the outdoor table. Perfect for situation! And the food absolutely delicious! My husband had fresh tuna (he says best ever) and I had filet mignon; it was melt in your mouth delicious. The dessert was terrific too - tempura bananas and coconut ice cream. Everything... More

We went to Matira Beach Restaurant after hearing several islanders recommend going there. We went in and was given a table a few feet from the water. What a view of the lagoon. We had a few Tabu Beers and had quite a few plates of assorted Sashimi and Sushi. Everything melted in our mouths
