tiny restuarant so book a reservation way in advance. It's an expensive dinner but very worth it, the chefs are very talented.

Before our trip to Bora Bora, my wife and I researched all the restaurants on the island and this was one of the most highly rated places. We stayed on the Four Seasons Resort and you must schedule many days in advance for a water taxi to the main island to catch a van ride that takes you to the... More

My husband and I LOVED this restaurant, it turned out to be our favorite meal of the honeymoon. We were able to get reservations about 6 weeks in advance and I am so glad we did. We both did the tasting menu and I also added the wine pairing. The atmosphere was lovely, every course was divinely delicious, and the... More

We went for the two tasting menus with the wine parings so we could share and try everything. It was all very good - and we even liked all the wine parings. The gnocchi with the steak is very rich but the steak is so amazing it melts in your mouth - also loved the Mahi Mahi with bananas. It... More

We ate here with some friends that we made in Moorea and had a fantastic meal! The men did the 7 course price fix and the ladies did the 5 course price fix. We did not do the wine pairings but instead ordered bottles of wine. Everyone's meal was terrific. The service is also terrific. This is the number one... More

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and it was the best meal we ever ate. The service was incredible and the food was impeccable. Make your reservation as soon as you book your trip as they only have a few tables. I highly recommend the menu exotique and menu epicurien.

We were on our honeymoon and had a meal here last month, based on recommendations from a friend that ate here last year. I have to say that we had very high expectations and that is sometimes not a good way to go into a meal. The setting is really beautiful, simple but very romantic and warm. The service was... More

We rely very heavily on Trip Advisor when making decisions about where to eat on vacation so when we read several negative reviews written the night before my husband and I were to celebrate our 10-year anniversary dinner at La Villa Mahana, I was deeply worried. So much so - that I asked our concierge to see if she could... More

As suggested in the title of my review, my husband and I thought the food was adequate. The tastes did not dance on my tongue as i have experienced in other fine dining restaurants. It simply tasted okay. For the amount of money we spent on this dinner i found that unacceptable. And yes, as mentioned in other reviews, I... More

After reading so many rave reviews about this restaurant, my wife and I were very excited to go here for our 10th anniversary dinner. We were disappointed enough by both the food and service that I needed to post my first review on Trip Advisor. To start with the good, it is a quaint and aesthetically pleasing place, great music...
