We stopped in after shopping in Vaitape for a quick Hinano and bite to eat. The big seller was the free wifi and close location to the taxi pick up. Actually the menu was pretty good; I ordered the chicken with coconut sauce. So yummy! The only downside is no ocean view. The service was pretty quick too and reasonably... More

The hamburger was pretty good but the service was awful. It took my husband about 15 minutes to get a refill on tap water and it wasn't even busy.

We came here after a few people had recommended it to us. We shared a pizza which was very average. Service was reasonably good but there is definitely better food around!

A local cafe, simple but clean. Friendly people. They do serve snacks, good for lunch but for "fine" dinning you're better served in Bloody Mary's.

Quick stop for cold beer after shopping. Beers were ice cold. Coldest we experienced the whole trip. Drink it fast though because everything melts within seconds.

We went here after taking the shuttle over to the mainland. Didn't realize that many restaurants kitchens close after 2 pm. This was open - had a Panini and a burger. Beers are cheap! and it across from Chin Lee supermarket that has 6 packs for $13.50 USD.

My wife and I were looking for some lunch during our day trip to Bora Bora. If we had been looking for tourist knick-knacks we'd still be there as that is all the shops seemed to sell, but there was a dearth of cafés. Small wonder, then, that this café was full. We went inside and were told to wait... More

We stopped in here for lunch and the staff and food were terrific. As foodies that have traveled the world and literally eaten at the best restaurant in the world (Osteria Francescana) I can say the food here is so good. Saying that I had the combo of Possion Cru, Tuna Sashimi and Tuna Tartar (which isn't cooked) and it... More

It was pouring rain so we stopped here to wait it out. We sat under the covered patio. They were extremely busy as other tourists were doing the same as us! Food was good. Nice rest stop!
