This restaurant was awesome. You put your feet in the sand and the service was just impeccable. The BreadFruit Gnocchi is a must try. If you make the trip to Bora Bora you must try Kaina Hut. You will not be disappointed.

lovely place and lovely food. Restaurant is completely in sand and although i had a cockroach crawl up my neck halfway through the meal it was definitely worth going there!! The staff found the cockroach incident quite funny :)

Last week we went to visit Kaina Hut and found that the restaurant is out of business. The front structure has been taken apart. A local said the restaurant was poorly managed and they ran out of money.

Starting from a warm personal welcome from hostess Titaua and ending with a post dessert greeting from her Corsican chef husband, Laurent, the personal connection with Kaina is ever-present and completely memorable.
