Where to eat European food in Bora Bora: The Best Restaurants and Bars

May 30, 2020 Jacquiline Darosa

Best European restaurants nearby. Discover the best European food in Bora Bora. View Menus, Photos and Reviews for European restaurants near you.. Turquoise lagoons, soft white sands, and deep tangerine sunsets set the scene for romance on the island so nice they named it twice. Mingle with tropical fish as you flutter around Coral Gardens or Tupitipiti Point, or relax in a self-driving tour as you take in beautiful views of the once-volcanic Mount Otemanu. At the Lagoonarium you can watch shark feedings and swim with turtles. Cap it all off with a succulent meal at one of the island’s fine French restaurants, then sip a tropical cocktail under the stars.

Te Ava Restaurant

Nice, sandy-beach style restaurant. NICE SELECTION OF FOOD. Beautiful location. Nice cocktails. Typical selection. It definitely needs a larger selection of drinks. Over all, the the on the beach-tiki-hut feel of this place makes it fun.

I have a sweet tooth and like to try desserts everywhere. We got tiramisu and chocolate tangerine. Both were good, but tiramisu was the winner. Might be one of the best tiramisu I would have tried. Macaroons were delicious as well!

Le Tipanie Restaurant

Reviewed By Simon I

Stayed at the Meridien with three kids aged 12, 10 and 7. We had bought a half board meal package which gave us breakfasts and dinners. Breakfast was always at Le Tipanie. Overall, pretty impressive. The waiters/waitresses and staff were fantastic. There were lots of breakfast options. The fruit was fresh, the omelettes were tasty and the crepe/pancake bar where a cook made them in front o you was a real hit with kids. Nice Illy coffee pod machine which did a pretty decent coffee. Dinner was pretty good. The lay out of the restaurant with the views is first class. Our board enabled us to choose three courses (kids could also order off the adult menu). You could choose to dine at Le Tipanie or Te Ava and so we mixed it up a little. Two buffet nights at Tipanie were the food was very tasty with a polynesian theme. A la carte was nice also. Only real negative I saw is that the bottled water was not included and the prices reflect French Polynesia in general. Slightly annoying paying for water that was free at breakfast. Overall the setting is amazing and the food is above average. I think pre paying for meals with full board or half board is a very good option.

We visited Lagoon by Jean Georges on our first night there in St. Regis Bora Bora Resort. The ambiance and the service were both superb while the food was slightly less than what we were expecting. We went for the tasting menu which was a 5 course meal with all the goodies you would expect. The appetizer was great. The scallop dish was very tender to the point I thought it was entirely raw. The only disappointment came from the fish. It was some white fish this I was hoping the meat would be tender. However, it was overlooked and made the fish meat taste like rubber. Other than the fish I have no complain over the other dishes. The ambiance was fantastic. We enjoyed our view of the island as well as the sharks swimming right beneath us in the shark park. Dear Xenoverse,Greetings from Bora Bora and thank you for choosing the St Regis Bora Bora on your recent travel, and for taking the time to write a kind review about your experience at the Lagoon restaurant by Jean George. We are pleased you have enjoyed your dinner with us and have carried back pleasant memories of our restaurant.

We are staying on a motu so decided to spend a few hours in Viatape. It was suggested we have lunch at St. James. What a fabulous suggestion! We had a table right next to the water, enjoying the view and ocean breezes. The manager could not have been nicer and even commented that my French accent was good. I had a smoked swordfish roll with goat cheese inside laid on a delicious salad. I love how the French come up with new inventive delicious ideas. My husband had seared ahi with vegetables and artichoke purée which he said was terrific. We were joined with another couple who said their lunches were excellent. Bravo St. James!!
