Just What We Wanted!

What a quaint little place right on the water with amazing food and pleasant servers! I had the prawns and my wife the scallops. Both were phenomenal but thank goodness she shared because the scallops were out of this world! So glad I let her narrow down our dinner choices and St. James made the... read 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.

What a quaint little place right on the water with amazing food and pleasant servers! I had the prawns and my wife the scallops. Both were phenomenal but thank goodness she shared because the scallops were out of this world! So glad I let her narrow down our dinner choices and St. James made the final cut!

The restaurant is set on the edge of the water with views of the lagoon and moored boats. The food (although quite small portions) was totally delicious -as was the French wine. The service is impeccable and although it was quite expensive all four of us thought it was worth it.

We supposedly got a "free" romantic dinner from our travel agency which I am sure I paid for. I had told my travel agent that I do not eat any seafood and he assured me I had choices. When we arrived our waiter told us there were two choices for appetizer and they were both fish. I told him I... More

We had lunch at St James while the rest of our party was snorkeling. We arrived a little early and we're given a table next to the water.....a definite plus. The food was very good (albeit expensive....$115 for drinks, entree salads and dessert). We don't mind paying a little extra for ambiance....and St James didn't disappoint. Sitting over the water,...

We had the best curry shrimp at St. James, also the crudo was the best I ever had! If you go, try to get a seat outside on the balcony, it was very nice for a romantic dinner. We were very satisfied with the food selection and the service! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Tasty food and cozy atmosphere. Owners are very kind and make you feel at home! Free shuttle service if you call them in advance. Bill is below the average of the top hotels and its around 17.000CFP (140€) for two persons with wine.

This restaurant was wonderful! Request a seat by the front and maybe you'll see the resident manta ray. The food is superb and more reasonably priced than other gourmet restaurants.

This was my favorite restaurant on the island. The food is amazing and beautifully presented. The staff is wonderful. I'd highly recommend as a nice dinner out. They provided free taxi transportation from the St Regis island to/from the restaurant.

I would rate St James as one of the best French fine dinning restaurants when I visited Bora Bora. The price is reasonable for the quality, very neat presentation and good taste pairing of the food ingredients. We sat outside on the deck enjoying the tropical wind and the lagoon.
