    The Bamboo House: Ask the waiter for anything!!!

    The food here was succulent gourmet. We asked the waiter/owner what he advised and was thrilled that he didn’t recommend the most expensive items. We enjoyed crusted tuna appetizer, meat grilled at our table and scallops in creamy grand marnier sauce. They were all ridiculously tasty!!

    You can also fondue!

    Definitely go for the “Tahiti Drink” which they graciously serve with a silhouetted-woman-stirrer!

    Favorite Dish: As most everything in Bora Bora is closed on Sunday, this place is not. But make a reservations way in advance as Sundays are packed. I would recommend that you dine on another night so you can receive the undivided attention of the owner as we did.

    The Bamboo House: The Bee Gees in Bora Bora?

    We really enjoyed our meal at this Polynesian Restaurant. The great thing is that they will come pick up up and drop you back off at your hotel. It was really bizarre though because while dining, we got to listen to the entire cd of the Bee Gee's Best Hits.

    Favorite Dish: We had this delicious mahi mahi in vanilla sauce.

    The taste was amazing, the plating of each dish was totally mind blowing (They should attend the "Iron Chef" challenge and kich some butt!!), the recommendation by the host/owner was perfect, the place was nice and romantic, however we were sitting in the patio and it was a tiny bit windy. The desserts were unique, tasty, and beautifully plated. The service was excellent and surprisingly the host/owner (like many French Polynesians) did NOT expect any tips!
    If you'd like to tip, let the host/owner know before he takes your credit card as once he swipes your credit card, they won't be able to add any tip unless you tip them in cash. (Believe me they deserve a very generous tip, as they are excellent)

    Favorite Dish: The lagoon fish (catch of the day!) was phenomenal!
