We made a huge mistake by not allowing enough time to enjoy Matira Beach Restaurant. The shuttle boat from our hotel to the restaurant was late therefor we were late for our reservation. We were so delighted when we were seated at a table under a beautiful palm tree just a few yards from the waves breaking on a night... More

Spent one of our last nights in Bora Bora at Matira Beach Restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. It was a very romantic setting. Wished we had gotten there before sunset to see the view. The food, although pricey, was fantastic! We especially loved the Poisson Cru.

We only discovered this restaurant on our last day and unfortunately it was full for dinner and didn't have a reservation. Since our flight, the next day, was late, we went for lunch and were thrilled. The service is very friendly and the food delicious. My husband had a fish dish stuffed with crab ( I forget what it was... More

The sushi was delicious! Great service and clean restaurant! Only one complaint...the glasses of wine are a very light pour...better off to order a bottle of wine. The food is amazing!

This was my favorite dinner by far in bora bora. The prices were beyond fare especially for this island as things get costly. The owners are wonderful husband and wife and made the experience even better. The beef was amazing and Mahi MAhi was so fresh and tender as it was plucked out the water that morning. Sushi was fantastic... More

We were picked up at our hotel by the chef/owner's wife and taken to the restaurant. We had a wonderful teppanyaki dinner which was prepared by the chef/owner. It was delightful that many of the teppan dishes were named after his family! The chef was an expert at cooking with the teppanyaki. The dinner was fabulous! We had filet and... More

My new wife and I are here one evening on our honeymoon and I wanted to share my experience with you. First our hotel arranged for a driver to come pick us up and carry us to the restaurant. The driver was nearly right on time and took us directly to the restaurant. It is only 4 minutes from our... More

Had the tepanyaki style dinner on holiday. Ordered the scallops steak. It was delicious, but given the number of times we frequent Benihana's and Kyoto Palace (similar) it wasn't anything spectacular. We shared a table with tourists and locals. Conversation was delightful and we learned so much about the island.

Had dinner there once during March 2017 - the restaurant is all about seafood (mostly sushi). The food was just okay in my opinion, this is a place known for sushi which unfortunately I don't care for. If you don't like seafood then i would suggest passing on this restaurant. The seating is all directed towards the ocean view, which... More
