I had to still give them 4 stars because the restaurant location and food was amazing.Beware, they don’t want people from other hotels coming there which is plainly obvious by the $140 boat transfer they charge for you to come to the restaurant. I was also told that if you don’t stay at their resort they will not give you prime seating. My wife and I had an amazing dinner which was over $500. We were shocked when the bill came and saw there was $140 boat fee. The concierge at our hotel did mention a boat fee but there was a loss in translation because we were expecting to pay $20. Our hotel was two resorts over, a five-minute transfer. Common sense would say that if you spent that much money on dinner they would waive the boat fee. The other thing that was extremely frustrating was the boat that picked us up from our hotel was actually the boat that was shuttling workers to the Saint Regis. It was the worst boat we have been on the entire trip, with paint chipping everywhere etc. We actually wanted to try all the restaurants at the Saint Regis but not for $140 boat charge every time. As I mentioned in the beginning the food is amazing, the best we tried in Bora-Bora.
One thing people should know, the food in general in Bora-Bora is just not that good. If you’re staying at a nice resort you’re probably better off just staying there for the majority of your meals. We ventured out to some of the top rated restaurants and were disappointed in most of them.

We were staying at the Four Seasons and decided to dine off campus one night. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Lagoon Restaurant. Everything we had was delicious.

We aren't fancy people by any means but gave this place a try for our anniversary. We were staying at the neighboring Le Meridien which offered a free shuttle for dinner so we took advantage of that. My husband had steak and I had chicken, we had a sesame crusted tuna app that was AMAZING, and I had a very expensive glass of wine as well as a dessert drink and I think we stayed around $200. It is expensive to eat everywhere in Bora, and this wasn't that far above anywhere else we ate for what we got. Would definitely recommend!

Ate here on our first night in Bora Bora. Took about an hour with boat and land transfers. Expect to pay an extra $100 from Vaitape to St. Regis if you're staying at a different resort. We both ordered fish dishes that were really good. However, the dessert was unbelieveable! Totally recommend dining here at least once in your life.
