This is one of the best restaurants in this Island. Imagination, seductive dishes at an adequate price. Owners, and service, extremely nice. Location over the lagoon, also helps to have a great time. Everything considered, it is one place you can not exclude.

Loved the tuna appetizer prepared 4 different ways, the shrimp skewers with jasmine rice, and creme de menthe chocolate ice cream.

Great food and nice scenery. The outside patio is great for brunch. You can even feed the fish from your table.

Location and ambience was very good right on the water, obligatory loud music in the background. The food was good but disappointing…maybe we just ordered the wrong thing, we both got grilled fish dishes, expecting some sort of french preparation, but it was just grilled fish, good, but not what we were hoping for. The main story is here is... More

We had dinner at the St James. We were picked up from our resort and taken to the restaurant. The service was faultless and the food very nice. The atmosphere was nice. I would recommend this restart.

The food was delicious! The presentation of the shrimp was something I have never seen before-really cool! The atmosphere was ok- not the most romantic but what is awesome is that it is on the water and for 30 minutes a manta ray was swimming in circles enjoying her own dinner! It was really cool! So overall food is great-atmosphere... More

We ate here on one of our nights in Bora Bora. We really enjoyed it, just wished we could of been there early as it most likely has a good view. The service was good as well as the food. Best thing was it was right across the street from a grocery store and we ran over and got some... More
