"This is the old Tahiti right here," Rick, the general manager, says, indicating the restaurant's thatched roof, open sides, white sand floor, wooden slab tables and stools made of coconut stumps. "This is a big Fare Tiurai (the baraques or carnival type huts built for the Heiva Festival each July). All we've done is add the varnish."

Each evening, a verbal explanation--which can be told in seven different languages--is made of the fresh fish on display as guests choose the piece de resistance for their seafood repasts. The fish are named, their habitats identified, and perhaps a preparation is recommended.

Celebrities from around the globe stay in Bora Bora and made the stroll to Bloody Mary's, there to be greeted as honored guests and, hopefully, future friends. As a result of this display of respectful camaraderie, a number of famous personalities have become dedicated return guests.

Such renowned artists as Jimmy Buffet, Julio Iglesias, Steven Bishop,
Commander Cody and Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones played and sang concerts in the restaurant at one time or another.
