My wife and I had dinner at St. James during our honeymoon. She had the beef tenderloin which was excellent and I had the Mahi-Mahi which was very good as well! Service isn't quick like in the states but we knew the island moves at a much slower pace than back home.

Enjoyed dinner with friends. Appetizers were fresh and entrees were delicious- food presentation was excellent. A nice place by the water. We dined here twice during our holiday in Bora Bora. Both nights were good.

Enjoyed two fantastic meals at St James in November 2014 during an 8 night stay in Bora Bora. This was our favorite restaurant on the island. The Tuna sampler appetizer included four types of raw tuna and was absolutely unreal - had it both times we went there. For our entrees, we had the shrimp curry and beef tenderloin. The... More

My wife and I ate here twice for dinner. Each meal was very good and we came away with a good feeling. If we have a complaint it is that the menu is quite limited. But, let's cover the whole visit. The setting is beautiful. The restaurant (and its adjacent bar) overlooks the bay encompassing Vaitape. There are a few... More

The company and food was great. Now, let's talk about the service. Not so good. It took forever to order and get drinks and when we wanted more the servers were hard to find. When it was time to go the shuttle left 6 of us there with no way to get back to the resort. The woman gave us... More

You must book a sunset table on the dock. Delicious food, gorgeous views and phenomenal service! The best meal we had in Bora Bora!

I actually think from an overall experience that this restaurant was better than La Villa Mahana just because of value. The wahoo was a terrific dish and the tuna was fabulous as well. Just well done food. May be nicer at lunch because you get to see the channel.

We discovered St. James was walking distance from our Bora Bora cruise ship tender dock while foraging for a unique dining option on our satellite internet. Thanks to Trip Advisor's useful reviews, we were rewarded with the best meal of our two weeks in French Polynesia. Appetizer of red tuna served in variety of ways was spectacular in flavor and...
