I've been in Bora Bora for my honey moon. Thi restaurant is the best place were we've ate.
Elegant, romantic and with the best sashimi I've ever tasted.
The french girl (I think the owner) is very kind and professional.
Too far to go there again, but we'll always keep Matira Beach restaurant in our hearts!
Love it!

Spend an afternoon on Matira beach, then get to the restaurant before sunset. Be sure to request an ocean facing window, or sit outside. We had outstanding service from the same blonde woman mentioned in a previous post. Perhaps she is the owner? Sushi was fresh, and the traditional Tahitian seafood was fantastic. The general feel of the place was relaxed yet upscale with nice decor. Our best dinner experience for the whole trip hands down! Panoramic photo of our sunset is uploaded...restaurant is on the right...

We dined here a few nights ago as a group of 9 and we all had a most enjoyable evening. The service was fast and friendly, the food was delicious and the Bora Bora Cocktail is a must for the over 18 crowd. Sushi is fresh and well prepared with interesting combinations, the selection of raw fish (Ceviche, sashimi, tartar and loacl specaility Poisson Cru) was outstanding.Thanks for a great night and we look forward to coming back!

We stopped here on our wave runner tour of the island and it was just perfect! The lunch was yummy and the service was friendly and prompt. The server and her chef husband have done a great job balancing a casual vibe with great tasting food. Goat cheese salad a must! I had the mahi mahi and my husband had the duck with honey sauce. We ate too much but had to try the fried bananas with coconut ice cream. It was delightful! We say a must try! Also great snorkeling out front of the restaurant we saw some sting rays as well as spotted eagle rays. This husband and wife team were so incredibly nice and the food was excellent.

Le Restaurant de la plage de Matira est situé directement sur la plus belle plage de sable blanc de Bora Bora, qui est bordée par un lagon turquoise.

Le restaurant est ouvert du mardi au vendredi, ouvert pour le déjeuner de 11h30 à 14h30; le dîner est servi à partir de 18h30 jusqu'à 21h30. Le restaurant est fermé le lundi.

La terrasse extérieure crée automatiquement une ambiance très romantique pour le dîner, mais si vous avez froid ou voulez éviter les moustiques, vous pouvez aller à l'intérieur de la salle de réception et admirer la décoration - toujours en profitant des vues sur le lagon à travers les fenêtres et les portes coulissantes.

Il offre un menu un peu plus de style collations pour le déjeuner, une sélection de sushi dans la soirée - et bien sûr des spécialités locales - ainsi que la délicieuse viande rouge de Nouvelle-Zélande.

Il est malheureusement un peu cher et les portions sont petites, mais rien n'est réellement abordable à Bora Bora, spécialement lorsque vous avez le meilleur emplacement et la meilleure vue sur l'île.

Le service est sympathique, courtois et efficace.

The Matira Beach Restaurant is located directly on the most beautiful white sand beach in Bora Bora, Matira Beach, which is bordered by a turquoise lagoon.

The restaurant is open Tuesday throughout Friday, serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.; serving dinner from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. It is closed on Monday.

The outdoor terrace creates automatically a very romantic dinner but if you are cold or want to avoid mosquitoes, you can head inside to the reception area and enjoy the beautiful decoration - still enjoying the views of the lagoon through the windows and sliding doors.

They offer more of a snack menu for lunch, a selection of sushi in the evening - and of course local specialties - as well as delicious red meat from New Zealand.

It is unfortunately a bit on the pricy side and the portions are small, but nothing is cheap in Bora Bora, especially not with the best location and views on the island.

Service is friendly, courteous and efficient.
