We wanted to leave the St. Regis for one meal on the main island. We were told this was the best bet for a great meal. If you are on the main island, I would try them out. However, it is not worth the hassle...More

We had a nice meal at the St. James, but to be perfectly honest, neither the admittedly gorgeous setting nor the menu were any different from any of the other restaurants we went to in Bora Bora. Because of the time of year, we completely...More

Went there for a dinner but there isn't much of a view at night, much better to go at lunch. Had the scallops, prawns and creme brulee for dessert. Both of the main dishes were extremely well presented, but small portions and served almost cold....More

We will be staying at Pearl Beach Resort & Spa. What are our options for transport if we want to have dinner here? We would want to see the mantas so we'll probably be booking dinner at 7:30pm.

Is there a dress code for dinner for men?
