We had lunch in this restaurant. It was good although we had to wait a little bit to be assisted. The view was really great.

We had lunch during our 10 day stay at Bora Bora... I had tuna and my wife a salad. Good, honest food ... for a reasonable price.

Unfortunately we we only able to eat here once during our stay on Bora Bora! The building is beautiful with a nice view. The local band they had playing was amazing and our waitress was very attentive. The only unfortunate thing was that they were out of Mahi and salmon, so we all had steak which was cooked well and...

A family dinner was offered by the Custom Tahiti and it was very well arranged and planned. The food was exquisite so was the ambience.

We were booked for dinner through our travel agent, so we had no idea what to expect. We were able to get a "free" ride there through a shuttle that was sent for us.

Although it was pouring rain when my husband and I were there last week, the ambiance was great, service was excellent, and the food was delicious. My only complaint was it was a bit salty (we had steak, potatoes, and veggies). I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Bora Bora.

We moored our catamaran at Mai Kai's moorings and stayed the night. The service was great and relaxed as it should be on a holiday. The food was excellent with both fish and beef on the menu. We had live music all night and it couldn't be better watching the sunset in Bora Bora.

Moored at the Mai Kai for a night and had our best dinner whilst in Bora Bora. Sitting on the deck having a beer watching the sunset, it does not get any better than the Mai Kai!
