The La Bounty restaurant is just a short walk from Matira Point and serves up eclectic French cuisine and other local island favorites. If you happen to be staying at the MaiTai Polynesia or one of the Sofitel resorts nearby this family owned restaurant is easily accessible and offers an excellent alternative to the more pricey hotel restaurants. If you happen to be staying further away, don’t worry, make a reservation, and the La Bounty will arrange a taxi to pick you up.
The restaurant has an open-air thatched-roof with beach sand floor similar to the famous Bloody Mary’s restaurant. The staff is friendly, and the service is decent, but it depends on how busy they are. The location is right along the main road but the restaurant sits on the mountain side, and unfortunately, it does not have a lagoon view.
Jason ordered the Maitai (1300 XPF/ $15 USD) and I ordered the Pina Colada (1300 XPF/ $15 USD). The decorations were a nice touch to start our dinner experience.
Before planning our Bora Bora trip, we had heard of many reviews online that stated this was a good place for pizza. So to begin our meal, we split a pizza (1950 XPF/ $22 USD) as our appetizer. The portions here are large so come hungry.
We didn’t know if we would have the opportunity ever to get back to the La Bounty restaurant, so we ordered the “La Specialite Du Chef” (Chef Special). This was the Gratin of seafood, fish, and lobster which was served with rice and vegetables (3800 XPF/ $43 USD). This was incredibly flavorful but for the lactose intolerant beware of the heavy cream sauce.
