We went to St James as we had booked this as part of our trip for a romantic last night dinner. We were given a special menu which had a choice of two appetizers, two mains and two deserts. I had a fantastic tuna tartare in a citrus dressing and my wife had a prawn salad which was equally as... More

Dinner with a view! It was amazing! My husband and I both ordered their lobster. At one point, a Manta Ray swam right next to the deck as we finished dinner.

We did a sunset cruise and then were dropped off at the St. James for dinner. Everything was arranged and the meal was excellent. A must stop if you are in Bora Bora!

On an evening where many visitors to Bora Bora's Pearl Island resort took the water shuttle to the main island, we were one of two couples to eat at the St. James restaurant. The servers did not speak English, and it took half an hour to just order wine (and they weren't that busy)! By the time dinner came, it... More

Beautiful location to enjoy a sunset dinner. We found the food and service to some of the best we have enjoyed on Bora Bora. We would recommend the dining experience.

One of the most unique spots I have ever dined! We came here on our honeymoon and took the ferry over from Le Meridian for dinner in the 'city'. We had a lagoon view and watched the stringrays cruise in the moonlight over the harbor, while enjoying the scallops, brie cheese (AMAZING), and some local wine. Don't miss out on... More

It's our last night in Bora Bora. I decided to go for the #2 restaurant according to Trip Advisor. I didn't pick #1 because we have to travel by boat plus we are not so comfortable going on boat at night). As we got off from the taxi, the place didn't look pleasant but as we went further in where... More

Nice restaurant, right on the water, food was good, portions and flavors are on the "delicate" side. Food presentation was beautiful. Very pricey but felt like a treat. Great service. We had an ahi tuna sampler and scallops for lunch.
