We read reviews and was a bit disappointed with the experience. The food was good but not great. The cat walking around was a bit of a hassle since one of us are allergic to cats and saws some bugs walking around the floor....a bit disturbing but understood due the location.

I admit I was hesitant at first to go to such an expensive restaurant. It was well worth it and I went twice within 3 days. Tough to get a reservation with only 8 tables but I got lucky due to cancellations. I chose the prefixe dinner with select wine pairings for each portion. The meals were exquisite and so... More

This was the best meal ever and it ended with the most spectacular vanilla ice cream that we are still thinking about!

Stepping into the back dining patio was like entering an outdoor cafe in Provence. The candlelight, the colors, the intimate set up, and the peaceful setting was so romantic. The service was wonderful, friendly enough and non-obtrusive. And then the food, so delicious and with interesting flavors perfectly combined. Classic French with an island touch that was very pleasing. We... More

This was good but way too much food. There were too many courses for us. Service was excellent, ambiance is ok, inside seating only with very very bright lights, nothing great. In my opinion, this dinner was very overpriced for what it was. The fancy dinner restaurant at the Four Seasons has a much better dinner for the same price... More

Classic french service, classic dishes with an island twist. Very intimate setting. We were very lucky to get reservations at the last minute as this restaurant is usually booked six months in advance.

This was our BEST meal in BORA BORA! In fact, we liked it so much we got to go back twice during our stay. The beef tenderloin was the best beef dish my husband and I have ever had! The setting is romanit and it feels like France! Reservations must be made way in advance and limited seating.

Once we knew that we would be staying on Bora Bora, we reserved a table at this wonderful restaurant. The restaurant arranged transportation from the dock and back again. The dining room is tastefully decorated. There are only a few tables, but they are far apart enough to provide privacy. My husband ordered the Menu Epicurien (seafood salad with caviar;... More

It was a wonderful time! A magistral partition played remarkably by the Chief Damien Rinaldi Dovio & his lovely wife! Every single detail is matching with an other, the food, the wines, the music…the rythm and even the weather! Perfect! Thank you Damien! Thank you so much for your warm welcome! I'll be back soon!!!

This restaurant is so... unexpected, nestled in the lush hills of Bora Bora island. After driving a couple of times past the road it is located on, we finally made it to our Thanksgiving dinner at the Villa Mahana. Stunning tuscan-inspired architecture welcomes us with beautiful notes of Italian and French chansons, stunning eclectic art everywhere you look, immaculate table... More
