Bora Bora with Maupiti Restaurants

There are lots of dining options in Bora Bora. You can wiggle your toes in the sand as you sip French wines and tuck into fresh seafood or dine inches away from the lagoon under Polynesian designed "huts" with soaring cathedral ceilings. You can have light meals at small eateries known as "snacks" in Vaitape and around Matira Point or take a boat over to one of the motu resorts to feast not only

You can have light meals at small eateries known as "snacks" in Vaitape and around Matira Point or take a boat over to one of the motu resorts to feast not only on the fine food but sunset views of Mt. Otemanu. The daily catch is always on the menu along with chargrilled meats and a selection of French and international dishes that often includes duck, lobster, shrimp curry, and various fish and meat dishes graced with vanilla sauce—expect to find it on almost all menus (it has a subtle rather than a sweet taste). The signature Tahitian dish is poisson cru (raw tuna marinated in lime and coconut milk), and it's generally excellent. You may also be served delicious coconut bread (homemade bread with shredded coconut cooked on a barbecue) at a motu beach picnic. Almost all restaurants provide free transport for diners, with most motu boat transfers operating until around 11:30 or midnight every night. Tipping is not expected.
