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

Definitely the best restaurant in Bora Bora, we had seen reviews of it being good, but it exceeded our expectations. Delicious!

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

This was one of the best meals we had in Bora Bora on our honeymoon. Everything was served so beautifully and elegantly! Even my cocktails! I would definitely recommend it!

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

My wife and I had romantic dinner here just a few days ago (August 2014) and loved our experience. We have had meals at a few restaurants in Bora Bora including some hotels and felt that St. James offered the best atmosphere and taste. We ordered the Prawn/Shrimp Curry and salad entree and it was spectacular. The hosts are very... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the Moorea Beach Cafe and some local folks in town. We took the boat from the four seasons to town and walked there for lunch. It was the best meal we had in Bora Bora. The Tuna Steak was cooked to perfection. The view of the harbor is charming. Service is... More

We read the reviews of this restaurant and thought it is nothing special, but let's try it. It was worth it!!! The atmosphere is nice, if you can sit outside on the terrace. But you will be only amazed when you see the menu and the wine list! Try the cocktails first as they are also really special. We had... More

My husband and I arrived at the restaurant when it opened; we were seated at a prime table on the deck over looking the water where we could watch fish and a large manta ray swim by as they were illuminated by an underwater light. For starters, I had a tasty shrimp salad with citrus vinaigrette dressing; we also were... More
