The restaurant is closed and looks abandoned. We walked by both at lunch time and at dinner time and only dogs were barking. Weird that trop advisor is not up to date and there is no way to mention that to other travelers. Also quite...surprising to see this restaurant rated as 2021 travelers choiceMore

A gorgeous view on the lagoon, a refined atmosphere, friendly and professional staff. We really enjoyed the meals as well as our whole experience at the restaurant. Lovely for couples, friends, and families. A unique Japanese-French touch on local Polynesian cuisine.

Restaurant Matira was phenomenal! Everything on there menu was wonderful! In our month stay on the island we found this place to be the best - best food and best service. Additionally, it was the only place in the island with mint during our stay...so I could indulge in there lovely mojitos! Let’s talk about the sushi! If you want the freshest tuna in the world, it’s right here. The sushi and sashimi was better than any place we’ve ever tried in the states including nice sushi in San Francisco. Drinks, burgers, fish all excellent! Make sure you stop here!!More

We had lunch day of my birthday and told MargieAnn so. She encouraged us to return for dinner to celebrate that evening. When we arrived that evening,she was waiting with a specially decorated table set up on the sand just for us. We each ordered...the steak with a red wine reduction. It was delicious. If I wanted to have steak again (this was my first steak dinner in several years), I would go to Matira Beach Restaurant. It is one of my fondest memories of this trip.More

My wife and I visited in September 2020 and I could not recommend this place more. It's run by a wonderful couple who picked us up personally at a resort not too far away. The service and food were both excellent. We didn't only have...sushi, but what we did have was so fresh! Unfortunately, like much of the island Covid is still hitting places like this hard, but if you find yourself visiting, please take the opportunity to get away from the pretty mediocre food you'll find at your resort and visit this place right on the ocean. The only warning I'll give is make sure to bring cash. I had seen reviews that suggested they accepted credit cards only to find out that was not the case. Thankfully, I happened to have just enough cash for our dinners.More

We just had dinner here tonight and it was a wonderful experience. They picked us up from the hotel and from the moment we walked in, the service was exceptional. The owners were extremely nice and welcoming. We were seated immediately at a table outside...overlooking the beach. The sushi/sashimi here were incredible. It was very fresh and the flavors were amazing. To top the night off, we ordered their deep fried tempura ice cream and that was phenomenal. It’s too bad that we leave Bora Bora tomorrow or we would’ve returned again for a great experience. Thank you Matira Beach Restaurant for a great last dinner in Bora Bora!More

My wife and I could not have been more satisfied. My tuna with foie gras was the bomb. Her whole poisson was light and perfectly flakey. Our server, Morgan, the owner was delightful. We were happy to support this fantastic restaurant only 8 minutes walk...from the intercontinental le Moana. We will be back to support this great family-owned restaurant with lots of heart.More

We had a wonderful dinner here. The food, sushi in particular, was fantastic. The ambience is lovely and it is right on the beach. The service was excellent. It is walking distance from the Intercontinental Le Moana but worth a trip from anywhere. Highly recommend.

What more could we expect? Amazing dinner, generous portions, right on beach, great vibe, attentive and friendly service. One of the best restaurants in Bora Bora. We had a fish dish that was light and perfectly accompanied by a soy based sauce. Also, great value...for what you get. Highly recommend.More
