La Villa Mahana restaurant in Bora Bora

La Villa Mahana restaurant in Bora Bora is hands down the best restaurant on the island. Owned and operated by Chef Damien Rinaldi Dovio and his wife. The restaurant has an intimate setting outside on the patio. The portions are a good size, and the wine pairing is spot on. The preparation and presentation are something the Chef takes incredible pride in. Book well in advance as seating is limited, you will not be disappointed.
