    The restaurant has a Polynesian decor with 4 dining areas. they also have a pool that is great for a romantic evening watching the Sunsets.

    This place is located up in the mountains and they have a private 'truck' to take the guests from the hotel to the restaurant

    Favorite Dish: Mahi-Mahi, and Pepper steak.

    The restaurant at a dive resort called 'Top Dive' on Bora Bora
    It's close to the downtown area and not as much of a tourist trap as Bloody Mary's. The food is also much better!

    Favorite Dish: The mussel appetizer is great and the shrimp dish with curry and coconut as an entree is worth the investment!

    McDonald's Restaurant is the paradise of all in French Polynesia! Good, safe, clean and cheap food! That will make you to feel American pride after eating Big Mac and tasty french potato fries! Seafood in Tahiti contains lethal poisonous-tainted substances because they picked up from polluted lagoons nearby sewage waste disposal from tourist hotels. Remote islands without any tourist commercial activities are generally safe for eating seafood as long as they cook well.
    McDonald's Restaurant has air conditioning that keeps you cool inside! Hot humid and sticky with a swarm of mosquitoes will ruin your day in Tahiti and so, McDonald's Restaurant will save your day by staying inside of nice cool air atmosphere! The price is expensive but affordable for your stomach needs. You will love it!

    Favorite Dish: McDonald's Big Mac, McDonald's Double Cheeseburgers, French Fries, Apple Pie, Chocolate Milk Shake - It was delicious - WoW! It is the best food of all in French Polynesia!

    The REALLY SENSATIONAL place to eat in an evening(and the best) is at one of the many little cafe stalls on the harbour side in Papeete. The warm tropical evenings the starry skies and the scent of flowers added to the good food make it so special.

    Favorite Dish: The fish dishes were delicious

    Le Pecheur on Moorea. It's a strange policy, but you get yourself to a restaurant on Moorea (usually by cab) and the restaurant will get you back to your hotel. Le Pecheur has amazingly fresh fish prepared impeccably. There is a combination of French and Polynesian influence.
    It was casual (as most are) , intimate and reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite was the fish cooked in parchment. It was moist, delicate and absolutely delicious.

    The restaurant has a sand floor. When you walk in all the food that is available to eat(mostly fresh fish caught that day) is on display on a bed of ice.The manager, Craig, explains what everything is and you pick exactly what you want from what is on display. Execllent!

    by parkwoody Written Aug 23, 2002

    Bloody Mary's on Bora Bora is THE famous spot. Otherwise, the Society islands are surprisingly uncommercialized.
    Sand floor

    Favorite Dish: The menu itself - all displayed, and some of it still walking about, for your selection.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is Poisson cru à la Tahitienne.

    It's raw tuna or mahi mahi marinated in lemon juice and coconut milk, with vegetables. You can have it as an appetizer or for lunch.

    La Tipanear was my favorite restaurant, however I don't have any pictures. I do have a picture of the waitresses at Lanerva where the portions are small but the atmosphere is great!
