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

It's situated in a small shopping area but once you enter the restaurant you forget about that as you walk out onto their patio which looks out onto the beach. The food was very good. I especially enjoyed my curry chicken salad and their bread was delicious! The service was very good as well.

Food superb! Service spot on. Atmosphere spectacular! We saw a shark and several fish while dining at a table off the dock. The food was the most delicious as well as the creme brulee desserts! By far our favorite meal during our honeymoon at Moorea and Bora Bora. Highly suggest making reservations and visiting.

Had a wonderful meal here last night. The position, overlooking the lagoon of Bora Bora is first class, the wait staff very pleasant, the food the best we have had during our five days stay here. Shrimp curry was a spectacular success, visually and taste-wise, steak cooked to perfection, as was the mahi mahi. And the desserts a triumph. I... More

My husband and I went to St James for dinner last night and was pleasantly surprised by how good the food is. We ordered the Polynesian platter which gave you an array of tuna, each with it's own flavors. All were very good. In fact, I found the tuna here better than what I had at La Villa Mahana. We...
