Excellent food

We are staying at the intercontinental le moana and were recommended to this restaurant. We were not disappointed. We were picked up in a jeep (safari vehicle). We had the ravioli, the prawns and the braised lamb. All were fantastic. Also had the chocolate lava cake for desert to top it off. One of... read more

As one lady mentioned, please note their vehicle is an open aired truck so you will get a little dusty. Having said that, I loved that experience along with an incredible dining experience with the owner of the restaurant making sure we were completely happy at all times. The food was wonderful, but the owner and her attention to detail... More

My husband and I wanted to go to a nice dinner before our wedding day and chose the St. James. We were dressed up to celebrate and much to our surprise we were picked up in excursion truck and had to sit in the back. The roads are very dusty and with no escape from the dirt my white dress... More

We were hoping for a waterside table as we had read that you could watch the sea life swimming around near the lighted dock. We didn't get one of those tables, and since it was dark, there was really not a view at all. Initially we were disappointed. But then the food came. Outstanding! The best meal we had on... More

I have been a resident of BoraBora and have been to the St James many times with friends : never disappointed. Food was always great, service is friendly and personalised (every thing you could expect when visiting an island) and the cocktails are a must do !! Thank you St James for all those memories and good times !

I selected the restaurant on advise from the local pearl store attendant - she said its pricey but worth the money. We came to St James for a Saturday lunch - excellent service, beautifully presented and great tasting food but such small portions ......three scollops served as a main meal? I was embarrassed for my two male companions - they... More

We were here last year for dinner and enjoyed it then as well. I had the rib eye, which was cooked perfectly. My husband had what we believe was marlin and tuna carpaccio for an appetizer. It was delicious. We cannot remember what he and my other son had for dinner. My youngest had lamb chops and really enjoyed them.... More

My husband and I were picked up by the restaurant from our hotel (which is a huge perk) while we were on our honeymoon. Such a romantic atmosphere sitting out on the deck and watching the fish. The food was absolutely delicious- we had the brie, fish, and a lamb dish. As soon as we were finished with dinner, we... More

The view from the deck is very nice, but there's nothing special about their food. Wait staff was very friendly but service was very slow.
