This is a cafe with good Internet connection. The food is good, I have eaten here in the past. However, it is enough to order a drink and they will log you on to Internet. While this is a convenient place to check emails and have something to eat or drink, the staff is unusually sour. You will get your... More

If you are looking for a quick yet tasty meal at a leisurely pace with free Wi-Fi then you can't do better. Prices are a little higher than they should be.

My husband and I came here our second day in Bora Bora. I had a ham and cheese panini at a street cart outside the restaurant for $3.50 and my husband got the exact same panini in the restaurant for $13. They tasted the same. Save your money and order from the cart on the street. I had a strawberry... More

This was our last meal in Bora Bora and aside from the smoking around us, we totally enjoyed our casual meal. The pizza was very good and my husband enjoyed his sashimi & local beer recommended by the waitress.

So nice to sit quietly with free wi fi, rest my feet and have a really good milkshake. A sweet place to have a bite. Of course, it's the only place!

Good food, local hang out with Internet. Rode bikes there from a resort and enjoyed the ambiance which seemed like Starbucks French Polynesian style. Great food and lot's of friendly inter changing of conversation amongst locals and visitors. As always everyone is lovely there. Something is in the water!

Excellent grilled fish burger with decent fries. Cerviche was better than the St. Regis. In the middle of town and has free Wifi with a purchase. Service was good. Casual.

We just stopped in here to have a beer/wine and catch up with the folks back home. Getting onto the WIFI was a bit of an experience and the connection very slow. The beer was cold and the server over worked but I guess that's to be expected when a cruise ship is in town. Can't speak to the food... More

But it was a very pleasant little café and the food we saw passing looked good. Drinks were reasonably priced too
