We invited our local host to dinner and he recommended this restaurant. The food was excellent, the drinks were good. Portions were not small. Service was very good. There was a little rain so we were not able to sit outside but the inside was air conditioned, the ceilings were high and made of the local palm materials. Beautiful and impressive! Very Polynesian atmosphere. My husband had the local tuna, just seared lightly, and salad with goat cheese, I had the Tahitian tuna with coconut milk, sashimi, our guests had the lamb and the girl had the burger. They shared the salad with goat cheese. We enjoyed our dinner at Mai Kai. Highly recommended.

Very good food creatively prepared. Musicians were good. And we got to see the manta rays under the dock.

• Nice modern restaurant in Vaitape situated directly at the oceanfront. Large bright dining room – maybe not romantic, but still nice with good views on the ocean. In the evening sometimes there are Mantas coming to the shore, a great experience!
• Food is excellent! The starters (lot of raw fish, i.e. tartar) are outstandingly good. Also the mains (e.g. beef or tuna) are very good as well as the desserts – really very good!
• Very friendly and efficient service staff
• Conclusion: for me one of the best options in Bora Bora

We've been there and it was a lovely dinner. We arrived at 8 pm and had a drink. teiva, the ''cuistot'' arrived to explain us the menu and I've tried the Napoleon. Slices of Mozarella, tomatoes and fresh fish lovely with a basalmic sauce.especially delicious...all was good, the magret de canard too. We had the last drink on the dock watching the yachts, the lights...I forgot the name of the plates because we were 6 for dinner but I don't forget The Napoleon.
