My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. I ordered the steak and chicken fajitas. The chicken was delicious! The steak was not my favorite, but I am used to US steak fajitas. The sauce was the best I've ever had with a spicy kick to it. I went there 3 times for the chicken fajitas!... More

As an alternative to dinning nightly at the Sofitel we decided to visit the restaurant and found it to be quite the hidden gem. They prepare great cheese burgers and offer a shrimp salad that is a treat to eat. You may also try the salmon and the shrimp dishes too. We found the food to be fresh, tasty and... More

Customer service was hit or miss. Food was below average. Pasta and pizza were not good at all. If you have to eat here, order the crepes or burger. They are at least of average quality.

We ate here several times in a two week period. The food was very good for all four persons every visit. We did have one visit that the service was a little less than the other time but still very nice. Beautiful view. The prices are very reasonable for the island and there is a nice selection of food on... More

We ate here for dinner one night during our honeymoon. They have amazing Italian food with a beautiful outdoor setting. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was incredibly friendly. If you're a little sketched out by dogs, this might not be the place for you because a dog was wandering in and out of the restaurant.

Usually all over the island, people is very friendly and this restaurant is no exception. Food was nice, well served, dishes were big, nice cooked and presented. We wanted to eat Mahi-Mahi (typical fish here) but they had ran out of it, and instead they offered us another fish named Wahoo, which resulted in a nice surprise. Two main dishes... More

We came here because it was one of the only restaurants open on Sunday. I ordered the poisson cru and was informed that they were out of all fish except the mahi mahi with vanilla sauce. So I ordered the mahi mahi and my husband ordered the fish burger. In my husband's words, "at least my fish burger had tomato... More

This restaurant isn't anything special. I think it's part of the local hotel. It does have beach front seating though, and reasonable prices. We both had burgers and they we're done very rare even though they asked if we wanted medium or well done. I think fp's medium is bloody and we'll done means not bloody. This happened at several...

Tamaa Maitai offers a mid-priced alternative to the InterContinental Bora Bora. It is located ten minutes walk north of the hotel and the roadway is light by streetlights. The location is quite pleasant seaside. Food was tasty but not spectacular but costs are very reasonable compared to the hotel. We enjoyed the meal.

We arrived just as they opened for dinner to find they were not at all surprised we didn't have a reservation (unlike most). They offered a variety of different selections to choose from. Overall it was a great evening. ATTN: they do offer service with a credit card but cash is easier and you pay up front, not at the... More
