Went to this restaurant to have dinner on Christmas Eve. we had a nice dinner with a well-positioned table that overlooked the ocean. Then, at around 3a.m. we heard vomiting noises, my son had gotten food poisoning from the burger he had eaten. I too...had a bad stomach ache that lasted the whole morning as he and I had shared the burger. Christmas was definitely different this year!More

My friend plan to have a hangout day together at this restaurant by the beach . The restaurant served western and alcohol which are quite expensive. The place is always crowded on weekends. However, the food is nothing great is just the atmosphere attracts people...to dine in here.More

We love the old Bora Bora. Since beginning of March 2021 is is closed. The good news is, they moved next door. To the West. We could not wait to see the new Bora Bora, so we went a couple of days after opening. Opening...is a strong word, perhaps because there was alway a beach bar/restaurant. They simply merged. To our opinion it lacks the old atmosphere. Maybe we were too much in love with the old one. Still it is very much okay though. The beach is more open and the terras is comparable and cozy. What is not comparable is the lighting. After sunset the lights were on on the terras. Of course, but WHITE LIGHTS? Can you imagine; The white tube lights on the terras? It is such a contrast to the reddish yellow light of the sunset. To our opinion it has to be changed right away to romantic lights which keep you in the same mood. The restaurant is boring. Just a big place with lots of tables. It could be anywhere. The washrooms are horrible. Run down and not clean. Needs to be upgraded and repaired asap. Install also a number of western toilets please. Clean washrooms in a restaurant are very important. The menu is the Bora Bora menu. Very suitable for what to be aspected at a beach place. What you need is available. Snacks, drinks and main menu. Nothing special but good. You don't expect to dine haut cuisine, are you? Service like the old Bora Bora. Friendly, relaxed. For us. This 'new' Bora Bora is still the place to be at the beach in Batu Ferringhi. Can't replace the closed one, but it has the potential to become as good. A few alterations please.More

Bora bora pizza, Tom yum soup, sauté beef rendang, char kway Tao, mee mamak, was all absolutely fantastic. Nice setting and good staff. Would come again, great all around. Very reasonable prices.

Very busy beach bar behind the market, we did not have anything to eat just drinks. They have tables going down to the beach, service was a bit slow but it was really busy. This is a popular place to watch the sun going down...and a great place to take photos.More

This bar / restaurant is one of the best in Batu Ferringhi. We think that the place has a great feel to it and is lively enough without being over the top. The food here is absolutely excellent and great value for money. We will...be back many times during our holiday. Highly recommended.More

We ate here for 3 dinners on our recent week long vacation to Penang. Our kids (aged 7 and 10) loved the beef with mushroom and the club sandwich. Beautiful vista at sunset and fun vibe to the clientele— the staff are very friendly and...happy to see you.More

The bar has excellent beach view, nice food, generous servings and good decor. The servers were a bit moody, little or no smiles and even the bartender doesn't like to talk much. The cocktails were great but no happy hour in this bar.
