We were staying at La Moana and made reservations through our concierge. A shuttle picked us up along with 3 other couples from the resort and were the first to arrive at restaurant that evening and thus seated at the front tables facing the lagoon. The setting and food were an excellent combination for a romantic dinner. The foie gras... More

The food I had at St. James was the best I had during my entire trip to Bora Bora and Tahiti. Go here and Jean George's restaurant at the St. Regis if you love food.

After visiting the tiny town of Vaitape we dropped into St. James and had a lovely lunch at a reasonable price for Bora Bora. Outdoor seating with a view of lagoon just adds to the feel of the whole experience.

I loved this dish! No longer remember what my husband had, but, we both had an excellent meal. We had a wonderful outdoor table and were able to see the huge Eagle Ray that comes in to feed on occasion. A big hit with all of the diners ~ biggest ray I have EVER seen. Although the shrimp came from... More

Arrived at the restaurant, which was only. 1/3 full, looking forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary...started with champagne, a basket of bread... More

Went two nights ago and during dinner we were saying it was the best meal of the trip. I spoke too soon. I don't want to give this restaurant a bad review because everything up until this point was fantastic. I ordered the filet beef with mashed potatoes with truffle sauce. In the middle of the night I was throwing... More

Nice small place with delicious food. All the dishes are very elaborated. And the people who work there are amazing they give really good recommendations specially regarding the cocktails. Cocktails also really good but very strong.

We were staying at the Four Seasons, Bora Bora and took a visit for evening dinner at St James for a change of scenery. Lovely setting, very friendly service and superb quality of food beautifully presented. The only thing that stops us giving a 5* rating is the VERY slow service. Because of the way the restaurants and hotel transfers... More

Had a very nice meal here. The atmosphere is great and the food is above average. The service is extremely slow. I'd recommend this place.
