Maybe the best meal I've ever had. It's a must do. But make reservations far in advance. Don't wait until you get to Bora Bora

Tuna platter (best tuna ever!), truffle risotto (so good!), Mahi Mahi with vanilla sauce (really unique) and passion fruit cheese cake. The highlight for us is probably the tuna platter. It was fantastic! The total price of this with water and a glass of wine...More

We loved our meal at St James. Everything was cooked perfectly and very tasty. A definite must when visiting Bora! We got the duck and lamb mains and both were cooked perfectly!

We have not had a bad meal in Bora Bora. Prices are high but you get a fantastic meal that is somehow elegant and casual at the same time. The rib eye was great, as was the crusted tuna. We highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed at the Le Meridian and came here on Friday 5th. We both had rated our meals 10/10, wait staff were good and attentive, the ambiance was nice and they were very very quick. Definitely check them out.

The food was good and the prices were inline with the island. The servers for our group weren't rude, but they weren't welcoming either. The meal felt rushed, and I definitely felt like I was being kicked out as soon as the bill hit the...More

I'm really sorry for the lengthy delay but I just saw this now. Anywhere you want to go the store or restaurant will send someone to pick you up. It is the greatest means of transportation and it's free.
