Success has done nothing to dull the buzz at Blue Banana, a hip lagoonside restaurant in Puna’auia. The food is as good as the ambience – feast on innovative French and Polynesian dishes (small portions but artistically presented) and fine French vintages from the air-conditioned cellar. Pizzas also grace the menu.
Make sure you ask for a table out on the pontoon and arrive early enough to sip a drink and watch the sun set over Mo’orea. Reservations are recommended on weekends.
