We made a reservation for the evening was able to sit on the deck by the ocean. Beautiful fish viewing but the food was ehh. We tried the mahi mahi with Tahitian vanilla and lemon mashed potatoes. The potatoes were great but the fish was a little tough in my opinion. The vanilla sauce tasted as thought it was only... More

We had a wonderful meal with a great water view of harbor. The food was great and the presentation fabulous. Family owned and operated, we would recommend the restaurant for a tasty meal using local seafood and recipes. The location is also great for cruise passengers staying overnight in Bora Bora and not wanting to eat on board the ship.

The chef here is amazing! I began my 3 course meal with 3-way tuna. That in itself could have been a meal. Then the mahi mahi with potatoes and carrots was delicious. To top it all off I had the best cheesecake of my life! Wow! just Wow!

Dinner for two at this restaurant. While we loved the location, the decor and the service, the main entrees were lacking. The tuna appetizer with four samplings of tuna was delicious and nicely presented. We both chose the mahi mahi in vanilla sauce for our main course and this is where it fell apart. The fish was over cooked and... More

An exceptional evening with great view. Reservations were made several weeks prior to trip and pick up by taxi at resort was flawless. Open dining room opening on to the lagoon even after a week of beautiful lagoon views would be post card perfect. Creative presentations, excellent service and the view made for another perfect evening in paradise. (even if... More

Excellent presentation of meals, and the food was very good as well. Their starter and dessert for me were delish!

This was our first time at the St. James, and we'll definitely be back when we visit Bora Bora again. While it doesn't have the wow factor of Le Villa Mahana, it is much less expensive, and is still a high quality culinary experience. The wine list was small but we found a nicely priced Bordeaux. We had simple entrees... More

Great food and friendly service. Unfortunately our experience was a bit slow. We waited a while for all of our courses. It happens and it wasn't fun to experience, but yes, the food and view is great!

Only one meal of four was good. One was inedible, one overcooked and the other just not good! After pointing this out there was only a minor adjustment in the bill.
