This place is beautiful at night. I went there with my wife and had a great time. There was a guy playing guitar there. The music was good. The food is pretty nice and not so overpriced. I suggest you go there at least once during your time in Bora Bora.

My husband and I ate here last night and we had a fantastic experience!
We decided to eat in the village as we were getting a little tired of the limited menu at the resort.
We arrived at about 5pm after we had exhausted the local shops. Mai Kai was recommended to us by one of the shop assistants. We walked about 10-15 mins to reach it from where the bus dropped us off in the village.
Luckily for us, when we arrived it was happy hour at the bar. At this stage we were the only patrons in the venue (as the restaurant does not open til 6.30 pm), so we were able to secure a lovely table outside on the marina to enjoy our cocktails.
The restaurant has a free WiFi connection so we were able to spend time uploading our photos whilst enjoying our cocktails by sunset.
When the restaurant opened the head chef came out to personally go through the specials on the menu with us.
I enjoyed the grilled vegetables with goats cheese for entree and then the prawns with pineapple sauce for main (both from the specials menu). My husband had the trio of sashimi followed by the seared tuna from the specials.
We then shared the creme brûlée and profiteroles for dessert.
After we finished dinner we used the free bus facility at the Mai Kai to take us back to the resorts marina.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals here at the Mai Kai, and the prices were quite reasonable considering what we pay at our resort for average food!
I highly recommend this venue, great food, excellent service and a beautiful setting by sunset!
My husband and I will be returning here for dinner again tomorrow!
