We moored off the restaurant while sailing the area and went there for dinner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. Prices were expensive but no more than other equivalent places in the area. It is worth a visit.

We came to Mai Kai for dinner one night during our honeymoon. Our hotel set up a complementary taxi to Mai Kai. We were seated next to the window. We ordered the ribeye and the salmon both were delicious dishes! Service was great for our table accept towards the end where I think they forgot about us but they were... More

We were initially seated at a nice table outside. The staff then decided they had to move us inside to a crappy table because someone else came for the outside table. So, we were off to a bad start. The food is standard as is the service but they attempt to give off this snooty fancy vibe. This restaurant is... More

We had lunch in this restaurant. It was good although we had to wait a little bit to be assisted. The view was really great.

We had lunch during our 10 day stay at Bora Bora... I had tuna and my wife a salad. Good, honest food ... for a reasonable price.

Unfortunately we we only able to eat here once during our stay on Bora Bora! The building is beautiful with a nice view. The local band they had playing was amazing and our waitress was very attentive. The only unfortunate thing was that they were out of Mahi and salmon, so we all had steak which was cooked well and...

We were booked for dinner through our travel agent, so we had no idea what to expect. We were able to get a "free" ride there through a shuttle that was sent for us. They called 2 hours in advance to confirm our reservations. They were about 20 minutes late, but this has typically been our experience in Bora Bora... More
