While in papeete we never actually went to any proper resarants !instead we went to the caravans that park every night along the quayside near wgere the ships dock ,sometimes maybe 15 caravans in all !they have the best food ! back here in england i wouldnt think of eating from a caravan but in tahiti its the best !
chez mami is the best for chinese and is the one that stays up late (if you fancy chinese for breakfast after leaving a nightclub at 6 in the morning) but if you want crepes, pizza, steak,burgers or french food this is the place to go, a set up of childrens plastic chairs and table is the norm,and you can bring your own alcohol ! great for watching the people go by ,and a good sign is that the locals dine there in droves !
Raitea -on the quayside again one french restarant and one chinese _excellent food and cocktails but a bit pricey !
Bora Bora -wel you ve got bloody marys but i think that can sometimes be a little to touristy ,and overpriced for what it is ! but you have to go there cos its famous !
the best lace we went to is a little secret called Kaina hut,its not opened at lunch time but in the evening its fantastic !similar to bloody marys with the sand on the floor ! but much nicer and quieter !the decor is very nice with cargo nets and oyster shels dangling everywhere,even the menus and plates are great ! its by far the best food and service here, but again a little pricey (but everything is here !) and then pirates bar is a fab little place,nice food and freindly french guys working there ! and you can sit and eat outside on a terrace and watch as the manta rays !they are not kept there but they are drawn to a spot there ,and they are amazing ,sooo big and gracefull,you could watch them all night !
