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!

Food is priced fair. We didn't have much expectation going in, but it gave us some pleasant surprise. My husband loves his seafood pasta and very happy with it.

Ate here 3 times for breakfast and lunch. Great food and good prices. Wonderful staff too! I am from Chicago, and reluctantly tried their pizza. It was a very good thin crust pizza. Really went there for Belgium ales and decided to try a pizza. I was not dissapointed. Nice place and reasonable prices for very, very expensive French Polynesia.

Entering downtown, you realize it's a handful of shops, half of them pearl shops, no beach, a farmer's market, a grocery store, pharmacy, a church, and a police station. There aren't many places to eat so I'm glad this one was a good one. It's situated in a little strip mall and it was good. We had the fish tacos... More

After a day exploring Bora Bora, we discovered this fabulous cafe where we enjoyed unforgettable seafood cuisine. Bora Bora produced the best cuisine of our travels on this tour.

Have never had a Joffle before and no idea what it was till I ordered it at this great little cafe. It was a busy little place full of business people and the food was great. A Joffle is a circular toasted sandwich and this was of superior quality . A good salad accompanied it and the service was lovely... More

Not many choices for lunch when you taxi over from resorts on the motu but the Aloe Cafe provides good food, cold beer and friendly service. Located in a small strip of stores with an artisan jewelry shop that with a very nice owner with beautiful handmade silver and black pearl creations. Drop by and buy one... I did!!!
